About Me

Hello world. My name is Michael Duff. I grew up (kind of) in a little town in south central Michigan called Homer. It was there that I met my wife Debbie, she is the pretty one in the picture. This year we celebrate 42 years together!

My trail name is Splinter. I live and work in Springfield MO. My real job is working for Baptist Bible Fellowship serving missionaries in 97 countries around the world.

I love working in the yard, lifting weights, riding my bike, and BACKPACKING! I am working toward thru hiking the PCT or Florida Trail when I retire. I want to be that “old guy” on the trail that leaves everyone in the dust!

In the meantime, I am excited to share my real-life experiences through this blog!

Thanks for taking the time to read.
