Hi - my name is Jodie McDonie and I am hiking the trail with Kathleen and EJ. 

I am 19 years old and will be celebrating my 20th birthday on April 15 while I am on the trail. I am currently attending The Evergreen State College in Olympia Washington. I am not majoring in anything because there are no majors at this school, but I am going to graduate with a Bachelor of Science. I am interested in being a Veterinarian. 

I decided to do the trail (1) because EJ was doing it and (2) because I think it would be a really great experience. I am also hoping to discover some things about myself that I never knew existed and see how far I can push my body and still keep going. I think this will be a great trip and also one of the hardest things that I have ever done physically that is. I am really excited to start the trail!
