My name is Carrot Quinn. I’m currently walking from Mexico to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail. I’ll be posting updates on this blog nearly every day of my journey, buy unfortunately I’ll need all my battery power for posting and I won’t be able to respond to comments while I hike. I love your comments though! If you don’t see a post for a few days it means I’ve gone out of cellphone range; the missed posts will appear together in a clump once I can get a signal again.
More about me:
My name is Carrot Quinn. I was raised in Alaska on welfare by a schizophrenic single mother who thought that she was the reincarnation of the Virgin Mary. I spent most of my twenties hitchhiking and riding freight trains across this great North American continent, trying to figure out who I was and why I existed and what the world was really like. When I’m not hiking I live in a little trailer in Portland with my two chihuahuas and work as a rare-book seller and a professional dog walker. My biggest influences are Annie Dillard, Phoolan Devi, and Laura Ingalls Wilder. I’ve been writing since I was nine years old.
