"If my goals are odd I take it as a challenge." -Watsky
The idea to uptake this challenge was born during the final week of review leading up to our first semester finals. With so much studying to do we naturally decided the best way to spend our time was to take a full day to watch the Lord of the Rings trilogy. This left us both craving an adventure of epic proportions. Obviously the best way to satiate such a hunger would be to drop everything in the "real world" and run away to the woods for half a year.
So, without further ado:
The Goal: Hike the AT in 5 months, starting after finals of our sophomore year (May 2014).
We're young, we have the time, and we're working on the funds. We've only got one life to live, so we figure we'll do as much awesome shit as possible. So what the hell, AT 2014- Here we come!
