My Appalachian Trial I : Three Weddings and a Sabbatical

In 2014, newly retired and with nothing to do, I decided to hike the Appalachian Trail. Given that I had never hiked in my life, and that I had passed the age at which a mid-life crisis would be appropriate, this may have been viewed as a touch ambitious. The first volume of my story follows my preparations and early miles, as I gain my confidence, my hiking legs, and the legendary hiker's hunger. I hope you enjoy it.

The second volume picks up the story on my return to the trail after an unfortunate incident with a dog, a disease, and a course of antibiotics. I battle loneliness, embrace new friends, and fall constantly. The journey changes every one of my original perspectives of the Appalachian Trail and I learn my limitations as a hiker.
