I'm a highschool senior from Florida, possibly going to college in Michigan to earn a degree in Communications. I'm a dedicated athlete to baseball, and an adventure enthusiast. Every year, I try to do something awesome and so far, I feel like I've accomplished that. I came up with this idea in August of 2014 when I went to Alaska on my first big time hiking trip. The next year I risked hypothermia in March when I visited North Carolina for some tougher, wetter backpacking. 2016 rolled around and so did I--In the bluest glacial lake atop the Central Cascades of Washington. However, it was this past August in Wawona, California that I actually risked my life in Yosemite National Park. We were engulfed in a forest fire and ended up cutting through the forest to the nearest road and hitchhiking back with the friendliest Chinese family you'd ever met.
That should about bring you up to speed. I'm Neiko Megrichian and these are my stories.
