Episode #139 - Julie Wilson aka Stripper (a Trail Dames story)

Judging a book by its cover

I have been married to Jon Freeman for 7 years, but have only been home twice to celebrate our anniversary! Usually I’m out hiking. I am 57 years old (birthday in a few weeks!). I have 2 children, Andrew and Kaytlyn and 2 step-sons, Jonathan and Eric. My kids are married; my son has 3 children (2 girls and a boy) while my daughter has one son (4 grandbabies total--2 girls and 2 boys). I lived in Indiana for 55 years and have been in Cosby, TN for just a couple of years now. I taught freshman composition at Ivy Tech Community College for many years and I’m now a shift manager for the Nantahala Outdoor Center and have worked there for 2 years.

I have completed the AT twice now, once as a section hiker, finishing September 1st of this year and once as a thru-hiker (2018).
