Alumnus Sam Gardner (2009) hits the trail

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011

From Sam Gardner’s online journal:

“On January 1st of 2011, I will set out on a 12,500+ mile “All-In Trek” to establish a new record of unassisted ultra-light long-distance  backpacking. It will be the first ever, attempt of the “All-In Trek”. This involves solo hiking the four longest hiking trails in the United States, back-to-back continuously without any time off.  I hope to finish in one year but it is my ultimate goal  to complete this trek continuously regardless of a time frame. The journey of the endeavor  is most important to me.”
