"Through Hiking the Appalachian Trail" Meet author and through hiker, Sam Ducharme

Wednesday, October 23, 2019

This is the story of a modern day adventure. Sam Ducharme set out on a 2180 mile, 14 state backpacking trip from Georgia to Maine. During his 6 month journey he documented the rugged beauty of the Appalachian Mountains, the wildlife, the hardships encountered on the trail, as well as the people, culture and humanity at it's finest. Come join him as he takes you through the trail towns, over the mountaintops and through the back country. The images and stories will leave you with a renewed sense of the beauty of our country and its people. See his gear, how he cooked and hear what it is like sleeping in a hammock for 6 months through 3 seasons. Signed copies of Sam's book "Sole Searching on the Appalachian Trail" will be available for purchase after the program.
