Zero to Hero. I've only completed day hikes before planning the AT Thru Hike. After a friend talked me into hiking with him who has since dropped out, I'll be going Solo. I've always lived the life of adventure -- surfing, skydiving, snowboarding, skiing, day hiking, camping, etc. Now I'm looking AT my next adventure -- Thru Hiking! Also, I'm hiking for a cause - the Air Force Enlisted Village (afev.us). Please sponsor me at: hikefor.com/LarryBoy/AT/2017
