Link to my 2023 Appalachian Trail Thru-Hike Blog

You've landed in Maxheap's internet living room.

Off trail I go by Michael. I like walks that take months to complete, "punishingly intricate*" software problems and energetic, impromptu dancing to live music.

On trail I keep a simple hiking blog to capture a memory or two along the way and share a few pictures, videos and thoughts with friends and family. Link directly to my latest hike blog if you want to track my progress this year on the Pacific Crest Trail, or feel free to hang out if you "just gotta poke around." Most of the site is open to all.
