I'm Emily, a Hampshire Girl hiking from Mexico to Canada for charity

I'll be hiking 2,663 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail, otherwise known as the PCT, for five months with everything I need to survive carried on my back!

I'm fundraising

Hiking for a cause I believe in

KOTO is a not-for-profit social enterprise that empowers at-risk and disadvantaged youth in Vietnam through its holistic hospitality training programme.

Diary of a hiker in training

I've got so much to learn; what am I going to eat? Is my tent waterproof? How do I plan my route? Where do I camp?

I will try and share through my blog as much of the journey as I can!


Quarterly Fundraising Report

Preparation for the hike underway despite uncertainties.

With a heavy heart I have sadly made the decision to delay my trip to 2022 due to the unravelling and unpredictable story of covid-19 in 2021.
