Adventures on the Appalachian Trail
This presentation covers stories from her three separate thru-hikes on the A.T.
Starting with her first hike as a solo 21-year old (where she seemingly made every mistake possible)
and concluding with details from her most recent thru-hike where she achieved the overall trail speed record.
Jennifer Pharr Davis has hiked over 11,000 miles on six different continents and she is the overall record holder
on the Appalachian Trail. At Walkabout Outfitter, Jennifer will share stories from her three completed thru-hikes
on the Appalachian Trail. She will tell stories from her first hike in 2005, when she was a naive inexperienced
backpacker traveling the path by herself. She had to overcome danger, tragedy, fears and doubts to make it from
Georgia to Maine, but when she arrived at Katahdin she was a different person. Learn how that experience made it
possible for Jennifer to return to the trail in 2008 and set the Women's Record with the help of her husband Brew.
Then discover how Jennifer and Brew worked together to accomplish what many people thought was impossible
for a female hiker - the overall speed record, hiking the trail in 46.5 days (an average of 46.9 miles per day).
