Hike the Appalachian Trail, all the way.
If it’s not obvious by my list, I absolutely love being out in the woods. Ever since I was young my mom used to tell me that I spent more time in the trees than on the ground. If it involved being outdoors, chances are that I was all for it. I’ve hiked part of the Appalachian Trail before with my uncle and cousin and even though it was for a few miles we were huffing and puffing for the majority of the time.
There were of course many times where our breath was taken away for other reasons than exertion. The landscape and awe-inspiring views along the trail make me want to see more and more. To experience the entire trail is kind of like my Mt.Everest when it comes to pushing my physical limits. At least it seems so thinking about it.
To call yourself a thru-hiker (someone who has hiked the entire trail) means taking somewhere between 5 and 7 months to complete. That’s a lot of time in the woods…
I’ll be posting a longer version of this Goal Definition on our new Wiki soon. The wiki goal definitions typically include the same information but also you’ll find a breakdown on how I plan to accomplish this as well as a brief history of the Appalachian Trail.
