About Us

Eight ordinary people made the dramatic decision to pause our normal lives and thru-hike the Appalachian Trail in 2016. We all met at various sections of the trail, bonded through some of the most exciting, beautiful, enjoyable and disgusting experiences of our lives, and finished strong together atop Katahdin in Maine. Now, we’ve all been thrust back into society in different locations across the United States and Canada. This blog is a way for us to keep in touch with each other as we explore new adventures both in life and the outdoors, and serves as a repository of information for any other non-conformists that are looking for that Next Ascent.
