The Makings of Joe Wilderness

So, now I’ve climbed a few mountains and written a few blogs. All of a sudden, I fancy myself a hiker and a writer. Superstar even got a new website. There’s a fancy looking logo and everything. I’m totally a real blogger now.  I never imagined putting so much focus into something, but I’m loving this journey every step of the way.  Every mountain has it’s own story and I guess that’s what we’re all here for.  All it took was one summit and I was hooked. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy reading about these adventures as much as I’m enjoying adventuring them.  I’m having a blast writing and photographing my way to becoming an Adirondack 46er and I appreciate you being here to share it with me.  Keep checking back for new stories to witness the makings of Joe Wilderness.

So, WTF are the Adirondack 46?  Check out this video right hurr if you want to really know what  this challenge is all about.  My goal is to complete my 46th High Peak by October 2020.  The current plan is to finish on Mount Marcy, with an overnight hike so I can catch the sunrise at the highest point in New York state.
