Matthew Morde is a writer, educator, actor, and artist from Northampton, Massachusetts. He has written two yet-to-be-published novels which are, of course, enthralling and delightful, just like the author himself. Matthew is also an avid hiker, a claim to which this blog will attest.
Right now, Matthew lives in the wilderness with his beloved Lisa. Their dog and cat, Loki and Pepsi, have been separated and sent to live with the mothers! The cat no doubt misses the dog while Loki couldn’t give a shit about that cat being gone. Loki is, however, none too pleased about Matthew and Lisa hiking all day, every day without him. It’s for your own good, Loki. The first 700 miles of the PCT is desert and you don’t have sweat glands. You would die.
