Item Details

On his 170-day hike, Bob traversed 14 states and climbed 270 mountains. He began his thru-hike in Georgia in March and completed it in Maine in September. Although the AT is described as "a footpath for those who seek fellowship with the wilderness," it is often steep, rocky, extremely demanding, and it looks nothing like a path. Less than 25% of aspiring thru-hikers are actually successful in completing the challenging nearly 2,200-mile trip. During the last 380 miles of very treacherous terrain in the White Mountains of New Hampshire and in Maine, he was not deterred as he hiked with a broken ankle. After you read his story of determination, youll have a real appreciation of his remarkable effort. This book is available for purchase at www.grauathiker.com.

Once upon a time I thought I would walk the Appalachian Trail. In my younger days I ran road races and completed the NYC marathon a few months after being hit by a car. So you can see that I know about goal setting and achieving your dreams.

This book gives a good accounting of his preparations for the trail and what he encountered and endured on the journey. It was definitely a good book to read. I also went to his lecture recently and enjoyed it immensely. If you think you might be interested in this endeavor, read his book. It will help you become prepared for the adventure of a lifetime. For me, I don't want to spend 6 months away from my husband, spend the dollars, and undergo primitive conditions. But you can GO FOR IT!
