Applachian Trail Thru Hike

$20 of $6,000 goal

Raised by 1 person in 4 months
I'm march of 2017, I plan to be departing on a 2,190 mile trek, over the course of approximately 6 months. It is my intent to disconnect from the ways of modern life, and to discover a more earthly sense of being.

Along the way, I'll be documenting, blogging, and recording my day to day adventures. Everything from trail food, and the gear I pack, to the people I meet, and wildlife I encounter. My companionly field guides will be helping me to conduct as much field research as possible about the wildlife; edible plants, mycology, and weather. I hope to be growing spiritually from the experience, and would love to influence others to have a more earthly and conscious point of view.

I still have a lot of gear to collect, and any monetary donations would help me further fund the collections of equipment. I'm currently writing to many companies and influential people in my life looking for sponsorships, brand ambassadors, and cross marketing opportunities. Anyone willing to part with any gear would also be deeply appreciated. Lastly anyone willing to share any leads, experience, or stories won't go unnoticed.

When I return (and during my venture), I plan to stay involved in like minded communities, and would love to help other people conduct great treks, or overcome monumental challenges such as this.
Our journey of life is nothing but mind, body, and soul, I'd love to see more people living consciously and spiritually.

Feel free to drop by another side venture of mine that I'll be using as a branch to blog with on instagram @foragersofphilly, where I locally forage food from nature in the hopes to drive a more sustainable, natural and healthier food system. As I further my process into this over the next few months, I'll be starting a blog entitled "Finding Appalachia", that'll include my preparations, training, thoughts, hopes, and dreams.

As always, you're all beautiful people. Don't ever change. Thanks for participating in my journey to Ride Appalachia.
Namaste yah'll ✌❤️.
