Meet Mya (a.k.a ?), a 4 year-old Australian Cattle Dog rescue who loves running, hiking, frisbees, balls, sticks, cat toys; anything that can be thrown: “I lOVE TO FETCH!”. I first met Mya at an ACD rescue in CT. I’d brought a frisbee with me, hoping to find a pup interested in a lil game of toss. Well, I quickly learned that Mya was interested in much, much more then just a “lil” game of toss: This was the dog for me. I knew she’d be game for all the adventures I dreamt of doing. From completing Vermont’s Long Trail in 2013 to climbing all New Hampshire’s 4000 footers and now the AT! I couldn’t ask for a better dog to share it with.

Meet Su (a.k.a Clover?), I fell in love with the forest’s trillium as a young girl, so my grandmother gave me my own flower seeds to grow… And not much has changed. I’m a healer by trade and an adventurer at heart. My first views were from the top of Japanese Alps. I fell for cycling in PDX. I’ve worked on farms in Italy, Ireland, Japan, Hawaii, VT, and MA. And every year, I grow a patch of nasturtium for my grandmother and spend as much time in the woods as I can….now with the best companions a girl could ask for…

Meet Mike (a.k.a M&M for now), Lover of all things tree and forest related, eater of veggies, walker-upper of mountains, thrower of frisbees, sticks and balls, and last, but not least designer of all things graphic and web. Mya and I have been hiking together since Mya was just a pup. Completing our thru hike of Vermont’s Long Trail in 2013, section hiking over 400 miles of New England’s AT and peak bagging all of New Hampshire’s 4000 Footers. A man, his best friend and the trail, we’ve had some amazing adventures and stories; and now on to the next chapter: new adventures, new stories and a new team!
