Why choose to do something like thru-hike the Appalachian Trail? We’ve been asked a variation of this question a million different times. Literally. I’ve counted. Each time we answer, we discover a little bit more of what we are seeking. It simply began as a desire for some adventure. Something new. Something exciting. Something different than an 8 to 5 work week with much of our true living being on the weekends.
It delved a little deeper into wanting to discover what we really want out of life. You know, with five to six months of simply walking each day, one can imagine that you would have some spare time too really contemplate your wishes and desires.

And then there’s the opportunity to meet inspiring people, witness humbling vistas, and experience small town USA along the way. Who could ask for anything more?
