Living on the Dirt 

A Hiking and Travel Blog Website 

About Me

Hey there! I’m 28 years old, from Buffalo New York, and an avid hiker with a huge passion for adventure and the outdoors! The goal of this website is to help you find your perfect hike or travel destination. I’m a low-budget traveler so most of the stuff on here is either free or inexpensive. My favorite hobby is hiking, but I love just about everything as long as its outside. So backpacking, canoeing, mountaineering, snowboarding, I’m down!  I hope you find this blog useful to help you find your perfect travel destinations! Thank you for reading .
