"In 2003, at the age of sixty-two, I thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail: a distance of roughly 2,175 miles starting on Springer Mountain, Georgia, and ending on Mount Katahdin, Maine. My intention being to adhere to purist methods devoid of the “designer” ways that have become acceptable for modern thru-hikers.
My hike started on April 5 and ended on September 21. On the final day, our son Will joined me for the accent of Katahdin to complete the hike and to celebrate Kris and my fortieth wedding anniversary and to emphasize the contrast in commitments, which is what this story is all about.
