Chaunce’s AT Vlog #01: The Approach Trail

We made it! In this video, we make our way on the Approach Trail to Springer Mountain. I was lucky to start the trail with a buddy, Pepa, whom I met at Scout and Frodo’s when I started the PCT in 2017. We climb 175 strenuous, slippery steps (shout out to the 24-hour Fitness stair master).

My puffy and rain pants come to the rescue when it starts to flurry a bit. After making our way through a winter wonderland, I see an AT shelter for the first time before summiting Springer Mountain. Follow along and watch my log actual AT miles now!
