Me at the top of Forester Pass on the PCT in 2014My name is Jonah Boyer, and I am a 21 year old adventure blogger and musician. Since Fall of 2012, I have hiked over 6,000 miles, primarily during my 2012-2013 Walk Across America and my 2014 section hike of the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT). In 2015, I started my most ambitious adventure yet- two thru-hikes in one year! I completed the Florida Overseas Heritage Trail (FOHT), and the Florida National Scenic Trail (FNST) between February and April of this year, and began the Appalachian Trail (AT) in the first week of June. This year’s hike on the AT will be a special one, as I will be hiking with one of my best friends and first-time thru-hiker, James Stankewicz. We will likely learn a lot from each other and will assuredly have a bunch of fun. With each new adventure, I strive to become stronger, smarter, and above all, wiser- in hopes that I may inspire others to break from the status quo and embark on their own adventure, regardless of form or scale.

    Very earnestly: what do you do about snakes and other potentially dangerous animals/reptiles? And how do you fund walks?

    Keep on rockin out.

      Snakes and other reptiles are generally a non-issue, but it is important to be mindful of them while walking. Sleeping in a hammock works well at night. Large predatory animals and insects are usually the ones to be most cautious about, but are easily avoided/managed with a well-chosen campsite, the right gear (bear canister, headnet…) and the knowledge of what to do if confronted.

      The trick to funding is simple: save more and spend less. I will typically work for 6-9 months to save enough for a 6 month trip, where my largest and sometimes only cost is food
