After 168 days, 2189.10 miles, 14 states, and three pairs of boots, I have successfully completed my thru hike of the Appalachian Trail. Simply put, I walked from Georgia to Maine. It was both the most difficult thing I have ever attempted and one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had. It is not an exaggeration to say that this trip has truly has changed my life. On my journey I met amazing people, experienced trail magic and tested and expanded my own horizons. I created an online community where I was able to bring family, friends and even complete strangers along on my hike with stories, videos and photos from the journey in real time. I also helped to protect my home and the region I love, the Catskills as part of my trip by raising awareness and supporting the Catskill Center's work to preserve and protect the Catskill Park. I will be recounting my Appalachian Trail thru hike through my photos, stories, and videos.
