The new year is upon us! New decade, the return of the roaring twenties, what's not to love?
This is the year that I was able to not just start hiking again, but hiking like a fiend. So many firsts - 12 new trails, first backpacking trip, first time night hiking, first time hiking 3 times a week, first time hiking 500 miles in six months (or a year!), first time starting a business on my own, first time leading a clean-up hike, first time using instagram for something other than posting adorable dog pictures (well, I *may* still do that)....
This is the year I started Misfit Hikers & Adventure, Co. The year I realized that there's a LOT of folks out there that are just like me - who want to enjoy the outdoors and the adventures that exist in this great big world, but who don't always feel like they belong or that have to do it a little differently. There's so many wonderful hiking groups here in Ohio, but none with quite the slant of MHAC.
I'm truly thankful for those that are a part of the Misfit Community and the perspectives they're willing to bring to the table with such enthusiasm.
MHAC is still finding refining its voice and slowly but surely figuring out what the next steps are, because I, as in Jenn, is still figuring this thing out. For 2020 there's a few new things that Misfit Hikers would like to try:
- Organized Hikes for fellow Misfits!
- Keep showcasing folks and getting other narratives out there
- A talk or two about gear/hiking/etc.
- Find a partner out there in the great void of sponsers, so I can maybe get a bit more reach
- Keep the blog going twice a week
So thank you to everyone that supported MHAC this year - your support has made all the difference!
Wish me luck, and welcome aboard for the wild ride that will be the first year of the new decade!
