I love hiking even though it takes my breath away.



Hello everyone Fat Guy here,

Welcome to Fat Guy Hikes.  I started this site because I love hiking and getting outside as much as I can.

Why Fat Guy you might ask?

Great question.  Straight answer is I ballooned up to over 400 pounds and my sons nicknamed me The Fat Guy.  The name stuck and I use as a reminder of who and what I do not wish to be.

I am under no circumstance cutting down or trying to humiliate those who struggle with their weight.  Quite the opposite, I want to encourage those of you who want to accept the challenge to get up and get out to do so.  Take your time and get into shape just by walking a little and then maybe later a lot.

Why do I love Hiking?

I have been an outdoorsman for most of my life, something I forgot for a while and I intend to never forget it again.  I have been lucky enough in my life to have seen a lot of the US and other areas of the world.  I plan introduce these areas to my new wife, my sons and my friends.  So join us on our quests and feel free to share them with the world.

How did  I make this Website?

This is an easy question to answer.  I got involved with a community of like minded individuals who, like me, want to have something we can call our own and share it with the rest of the world.  The community is called Wealthy Affiliate, check it out if you are interested in learning how to make your own website and share your adventures in life.

Final Note.

I know you are here because you love to hear other stories about the love of hiking.  Please let me know if there is an adventure you are interested in or if you want to know more about any of the adventures I write about.


See you out there,


The Fat Guy
