  • Marco Sorrentino : Dec 26th

    I met a young man named Jack from NC in the LAX Dec 2 . He was traveling to New Zealand to thru hike the Te Araoa trail fo 4 months . I being a non hiker was fascinated with his plan. I told him that I have recently been reading the Trek articles that pop up on Google, and I have been researching some of the gear needed for a beginners of my own . Jack informed me that he acassionally writes articles for the Trek an gave me some valuable advice during our conversation. Jack had completed 8 thru hikes across America and this was his first trip out of the US , and thru hiking New Zealand is mind blowing. If anyone knows of this person please pass along my email and tell him Marco the organic farmer from PA is hoping he’s having a Blast.
