After completing the AT in 2018, Julie Wilson-Freeman, aka Stripper, decided she wasn't quite done.... she shares her stories of the last 150 miles of her complete section hike of the AT, complete with rock scrambles and rebar climbing, and dancing on top of Katahdin.
Bio: 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).
