Tales from the Trail: Hiker Videos Volume II

Welcome to our second installment of Tales From the Trail, where we post straight-from-the-trail (or pre-trail…) video updates from our 2017 bloggers. This week we get a new crew of thru-hiker intros and the inspiration behind their hikes.

Highlights from Volume II:

– A thru-hike start date is arguably more important than attending your college graduation

– If you think being legally blind means you can’t thru-hike, think again

– Shout-out to a badass 1980 thru-hiking dad inspiring the next generation

– Toy poodles probably won’t cut it on the Appalachian Trail

– One surprise camel cameo
