Shortly after college I had my first experience with a long distance trip.  After three months of hiking along the Appalachian Trail I was hooked.  There is something special about the rhythm of life when you are outside and you have everything you need on your back.  I appreciate the simplicity of waking up each day eating breakfast, packing up your gear, and hitting the trail.

Ever since that first trip I’ve been interested in long distance man powered travel!
