An experience of soul-reviving simplicity, forged in a 2,185 mile journey through the last remnants of the eastern forest. Follow the adventures of five accidental companions from north to south, from strangers to brothers, as they battle, survive, and laugh their way up and over the mountains of the Appalachian Trail. Leaving the comforts of the civilized world behind, these unlikely friends rediscover the simple pleasures of life and, through hardship, find the essential joy of fellowship. Reliving the miles and the passing scenery, we learn that all good things are studies in contrast, and that change is an inevitability of going from here to there.

A Check on the Bucket list
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.
