Laura B.

Laura B. Left the trail having hiked 233.1 mi around July 23rd, 2008. See the post “Hiking the AT is like hitting yourself in the head with a hammer . . .” for her final address.

Trail name: Siren

Places I call home: Denver, CO. Born and raised there, and moved back after graduating from Midd. Middlebury, VT. Was crucial in me becoming who I am today, and I wouldn’t be doing this adventure if I hadn’t gone there.

For the past two years: I lived in intentional community in Denver while working at a crisis relief center for low income families. After that year ended, I stayed with the job and moved in with some friends from church. I just left the job to hike the trail!

I’m hiking the trail because: Well, it was initially to give myself some time to figure out what I want to do with my life, and to spend time with some of my favorite people. Now, I think I know what I want to do with my life (I realised this spring that I need to just give in and become a doctor), so it’s mostly about the people.

After the trail, I’ll be: taking classes to finish the pre-med prerequisites, and working. I plan to be in Denver to be close to my family and my boyfriend. I’m aiming to start medical school the fall of 2011, so I’ve got a long road before I even get started. I’m excited though!
