Welcome to Joyful Rambler! I’m Joey, a sort-of newbie backpacker and lifetime wanderer. God willing, I still have a lot of miles to go!
My next big adventure is a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail in 2018. Like most people backpacking the AT for the first time, I have loads of questions. I’m curious by nature and enjoy the quest for answers. I’ll share what I learn here on my blog as a helping hand to other hikers .
Watch for my vlog posts on YouTube and subscribe to my channel. I’ll cross-post videos here, along with my blog posts, ponderings, and notes about things that puzzle me. (Maybe some of you have the answers!)
If you’re an experienced hiker, I welcome your advice and encouragement. Please share your wisdom in the post comments or contact me personally.
