ReneeRenee "She-ra" Patrick has always placed more emphasis on having experiences and challenging herself than keeping a steady job and padding a bank account. Her sense of exploration led her to join the Peace Corps after college, and hike her first long trail soon after. Eleven thru-hikes and 11,000 miles later she is still in love with discovering her surroundings on foot and now is able to use all those experiences in her current endeavor to develop the challenging 750-mile desert route: the Oregon Desert Trail. "I will never stop hiking, and I like to say my favorite trail is the one I haven’t hiked yet.”
