After retiring at the age of 59, Chuck Aldridge, an Asheville resident, decided to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail in 2011. Now's your chance to get helpful tips and hear stories about thru-hiking the AT from a fairly different perspective.
Chuck will talk about how to start, how to stay, how to keep going, and how to finish the Appalachian Trail during his presentation at the Asheville REI on May 24th, from 7:00 p.m. - 8:15 p.m. The event is free, but appears to be filling up fairly quickly. For more information, please click here.
