YOUR SUPPORT MATTERS

Hi there! Did you know that I'm on a mission to not only create the next National Scenic Trail but to eliminate the need for 'Vitamin i' in the greater adventure community? Your membership at Whole Food Hiker helps me to continue working towards both of these goals.

 

By becoming a member of Whole Food Hiker, you'll not only be investing in the bigger picture, my 2 National Scenic Trail proposals, but by being excited about, training for, and hiking on my trails you'll be investing in your own health. As a member, you'll be part of the legacy too. Here's how it works:

Your Membership Matters...

  YOUR MEMBERSHIP DUES AT WORK

Thanks to your help:

Membership dues are non-refundable and help facilitate the following 3 things:

1. Overall support for the SPT & HST trails, including:

  • Trail clean-up projects

  • Updating & improving data & online resources

  • Ongoing work towards National Scenic Trail status

  2. To establish, maintain, and improve upon an online place (Whole Food Hiker) where from it, we can lunch creative content aimed at changing long-distance hiking - and human powered endeavors in general - from being seen as something that will beat you down, to something that will build you up. In the process, you'll have the opportunity to get built-up too as you see me walk on my own pathway, bound for my own greatest human endeavor. Get you done healthy

  3. And finally, your membership allows me to provide you with incredible adventures that you can go do for yourself, offer a unique yet certified viewpoint on nutrition that's got 15,000+ miles behind it, and give support back when it comes to your questions, concerns, or needs - on or off of my trails.

Your membership here is greatly appreciated.
