Mailing instructions

A solo woman thru hiker from last year told me I will absolutely need letters and love from friends and family on the trail. (A thru hiker is someone who walks the whole shebang in one year, which I may or may not become.) She said that because thru hiking is a largely solitary experience, the reminders of love from far away are positively divine.

If you want to mail me,
before June 5:
address it to

Julia Tyler
General Delivery
Duncannon, PA
ATTN: Please Hold for AT Thru-Hiker ETA June 5

I'm not sure how many other stops I'll have yet, but I'll update when I do know.

Much love,


  1. Woo-hoo! Can't wait to hear about your journey. I'll let you know if something drastically changes by surprising you out on the trail. ;)

  2. Thanks - I was hoping you'd be able to get mail!
