For those who need an arm twisting…

Why AppTrials is the greatest Snapchat account in the history of time 

Because it’s run by thru-hikers.  Yes, plural.  Our Bloggers will be taking turns at the helm. They’ll be giving you a behind the scenes peek at the life of a thru-hiker. Dirt. Grime. Endless appetites. Pristine views. The whole 3,852,640 yards.

On deck

Kevin Arsenijevic will be kicking off the fun for the first few days.  Kevin and his crew are taking a couple zeros in Gatlinburg and then hitting the trail on Friday.  I’ll be taking the reins early next week during a short section hike on the AT, then our Badger Sponsorship winner, Gina De Naples, will take control.  Gina has just taken a couple weeks off to mend an injury and is champing at the bit to get back on the trail.  This will take us right up to Trail Days in Damascus, which you can bet we’ll be giving you an inside look at the festivities.

So what are you waiting for?  

This will be a perk moving forward for our Bloggers, so if you’re taking on a thru-hike next year, consider applying to join our team.
