Stephanie’s Appalachian Trail 2019 #1: Introduction ft. Brand-New ACL

Hey there! I’m Stephanie, and I’m coming from California to the east coast to start my Appalachian thru-hike on May 1 with my boyfriend. As soon as I decided I was going to hike the trail, I tore my ACL in August 2018. My physical therapist and surgeon are very optimistic…and so am I! Watch the full video to learn the reasons why I’m hiking the AT.
