I’m just browsing articles on this six foot tall thru hiker.

Seems to me she must be the #1 female hiker in the world.

2005 – Appalachian Trail Thru-Hike

2006 – Kilimanjaro Summit, Africa

2006 – Pacific Crest Trail Thru-Hike and Fundraiser ($10,000)

2007 – Hike for Habitat Fundraiser ($10,000)

2007 – Machu Picchu and Cotahuasi Canyon, Peru

2007 – Unsupported Long Trail Record (7 days, 15 hours)

2008 – Unsupported Bibbulmun Track Record, Australia

2008 – Supported Appalachian Trail Record (57 days and 8 hours – an average of 38 miles per day.)

2009 – Colorado Trail

2010 – Foothills Trail, GR20, Tour du Mont Blanc, Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, West Highland Way

Jennifer has hiked over 9,000 miles of Long Distance Trails. She has trekked on 6 continents and currently holds endurance records on The Appalachian Trail, Long Trail and Bibbulmun Track.

The link I most enjoyed features a number of articles written by her – Girl Gone [Into The] Wild

She sets speed records when possible in order to get back to her hubby as quickly as possible.

She’s just published her first book – Becoming Odyssa: Epic Adventures on the Appalachian Trail
