A Check on the Bucket list
Any additional comments?
As I’m never going to make this modern American pilgrimage, I was curious about it. Woodill was interesting to follow on the trek.. good to be with a thru-hiker who can make the miles, clearly. He was brutally honest about how his goals were challenged, and the repetition of the days showed that the journey became about more than the miles.
Almost surprisingly engaging and a journey that drew me along with a good mix of dry humor that narrator Wright delivers beautifully, really making the experience come alive. Glad I got this audio hike.

I've read or listened to a lot of Appalachian Trail books, probably close to 20. This is the first one I couldn't get through. This would have been my second book on a Southbound thru hike, but I stopped listening before the author got out of Vermont. I don't know if it was the overuse of the word "conifers", the overuse of the word "knees", or just the fact that the narrator was the most boring I have ever heard. Perhaps it was the fact that the author felt the need to fill every sentence with as many adjectives as possible. Honestly, if it weren't for the narrator being so boring I probably would have given the book a little longer, but listening just made me want to fall asleep. If anything, I suggest reading the book which might be better.
UPDATE: I went back to this book to give it another chance. I would like to amend my previous statement and say you shouldn't bother reading the book. The overuse of adjectives is just too much to get past.
