Welcome to Pete on the AT. In just over 1 month I plan to start what is expected to be a 5 month long journey hiking the Appalachian Trail.
Why do I plan to spend 5 months hiking when I could be golfing and drinking Budweiser by the beach? Good question.
A) I have told too many people I am doing it to back out now
I am hiking in support of 3 charities:
- Sun Dial Manor, a retirement home in my hometown of Bristol, SD
- K9s for Warriors, who rescues dogs from shelters and trains them to be support dogs for vets with PTSD
- The Down Syndrome Program at Boston Children’s Hospital, providing resources, advocacy, and support to all families
Thank you for stopping by! More details on everything to come – stay tuned!
