Chris Armstrong

Hello!! My name is Chris and I plan on hiking the AT starting on March 14 2021....assuming the world doesn't end before then. I am currently wrapping up a 24 year career in the Coast Guard and will be using the AT to springboard me back into the real world. I currently live in Rhode Island (Go Rhody) and will be moving back to South Florida after the hike.

How Many Numbers Are You Juggling?

Planning for any long trail thru hike requires some forethought for most individuals. For me, it comes down to the numbers and how best to maximize them for success on the trail.

Welcome to My 2021 AT Hike

Hiking a Long Distance Trail seems to be on everyone's bucket list. However, not many people can pull away from society to quest out on this endeavor. This is an introduction post into myself, who is lucky enough to pull away from society for the next 6 months.
