UNDEFINED BY PAIN, DRIVEN BY PURPOSE

Hi, I’m Gail. An adventurer, writer and speaker with a side order of overcoming chronic illness. I spend my time exploring the world through epic human-powered journeys; mostly hiking my way around on my own two feet, carrying my home on my back.

Every journey I make teaches me more. Every time I return I use my 18+ years at the top of my game in the educational field to teach others how they can push their limits too.

You may want to hike across the USA, sail across oceans or climb mountains. You might want to take a full day’s hike and feel proud of how you’ve challenged yourself. All things are eminently achievable with the right mind set and skills.

Whether you’re ready to adventure or just to try to find your way out of a current dead end, you’re in the right place. We’ll do this together.

If you want to get involved right away, come and join my outdoors community group here on Facebook. If you can, please consider supporting my thru hikes, resources and community work here on Patreon. Thank you!

Be inspired

Whatever it is you’re dreaming of – it can happen. It doesn’t matter what you believe stands in your way, it can be overcome.

Join me and change the narrative about our ‘broken bits’. Let’s bring them out into the light as our superpowers. Whether invisible illness, neurodiversity, or any life-limiting issue, our ‘flaws’ ultimately give us the tools, self-knowledge, and resilience to achieve great things. Lets go…


Cover of Gail's book Unlost

I was told I’d be in a wheelchair by the age of forty. At forty-one, I embarked on one of the world’s toughest treks – The Appalachian Trail. This is the inspiring account of my incredible journey into the unknown and how I reclaimed herself in the process. A love letter to the healing power of the wild outdoors and an incredible testament to the strength of the human spirit, my story is for anyone who has ever felt stuck in a rut, lost or scared.

I’ll show you that even in our darkest times, it’s possible to find our inner grit, face our fears and feel hopeful.
