About Charlie Knight

I’m Charlie – 2016 PCT thru-hiker, adventurer, writer and motivational speaker.

When I’m not crossing deserts, climbing mountains and getting lost in some of the most remote places in the world, I devote my time to raising awareness of mental illness – one of the most widespread afflictions and leading causes of death worldwide.

In 2016 I walked 2650 miles from Mexico to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail for mental health awareness, raising over £3000 for SANE mental health charity.

Step inside for stories and photos from my travels as well as tips to help you plan your next big adventure!

Buy me a coffee?

Thank you to every single person who has helped me raise over £3000 for mental health charity SANE, and to all my readers and followers.

Keeping this site going is not easy and adventures are not cheap. If you’d like to help me out by throwing a few pennies my way then I will be eternally grateful 🙂
