Blake's Bio and Hiking Resume
Hi! My name is Blake Robinson. I am Walk the Parks!
I'm so EXCITED! ALL THE TIME! Especially when it involves slowly walking across the country. There's just something about being outside, carrying all your possessions on your back and exploring beautiful places that makes me want more and more. Seems like I meet amazing people in every town, too. Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes! Life is so amazing. I feel so lucky to have gone on all of the adventures I have so far, and to think: there's more to come!
There's just something about having a ridiculously large goal that you can make small bits of progress towards every single day and then over months, you've accomplished so many small goals, and eventually the huge one is complete.
2019: Pacific Crest Trail, I-10 to Canada

I find I really appreciate the "little things" so much more if you go without them, as tends to be the case on long walks. If it rains for hours or days on end, that first bit of sunshine is all the warmer. If it's windy and you finally get inside, you have a huge new appreciation for walls. Yes, walls!
I feel like the most ME when I'm outside. Rather than watching an adventurous tv show or movie, why not make my own adventures?
Shouldn't we listen to some of the cliches: you only live once, chase your dreams, follow your heart, if I only had 1 more year, if I were a billionaire I'd...
