The purpose of this site is for you guys: to allay fears that I will have an Into the Wild type experience while hiking a section of the Appalachian Trail from Spring Mountain Georgia to Virginia.  For those who haven’t seen Into the Wild, it doesn’t end well.

Also, if any of you guys want to join me on the trail, you can use the GPS map of this site to track my location.  You should probably also give me a call.

  1. Butters – your stories and photos are so inspirational and make me jealous at the same time! 🙂 If you are able to give me a week or two of notice ahead of when you will be in the Smokies, I’d love to meet up with you and hike a day or two. Anyhow, just let me know. And good luck on your continued journey!


  2. Hey, Weatherman! This is Desperado and Micro at Woods Hole Hostel. Please send me (Desperado) an email telling me how post-trail life is treating you.


    Take care.
