In 2005 a now ex-wife of mine and myself embarked on the journey of a lifetime. We chose the famous Appalachian Trail (AT) as our destination to make personal history. Being novice hikers, as we were, we were ill-prepared for the hike ahead but we had no idea since this would be the first time, we had stepped foot on the Appalachian Trail. We had no idea what we were getting into. I kept day-by-day journal entries, of those 30 fated days and 16 years later have decided to turn those into this book. In a sense, I was following an internal guide, one that led me to this trail with a sense of a spiritual journey or a homage of a sort. No doubt the hike would be grueling and even more so for a couple that was not prepared nor had any long-distance hiking experience. We had no idea what we were getting. “The trail” is an unforgiving place.
A real-life outdoor adventure that has never been told to the world…until now. Read the author’s personal thoughts that were written that 16 years ago, as it happened. Read about the countless “angels” on the trail that the author and his partner ran into that increased the likelihood of their success, from the human side to the celestial side. From near-death experiences to the events that changed their lives. Each step of the way you will follow their path as it was. The Appalachian Trail is one of America’s hardest trails to complete and every day a new challenge awaits the hikers. As simple as it may seem to the un-experienced eye, the AT trail is simply a long-distance footpath through 14 states that takes hikers on some of the best and memorable steps they will ever take in their lives. Enter now, “The Sacred Journal- An Appalachian Trail Adventure”.
