The article promised me a time-lapse video. That is not what I saw. The video was good, but not as advertised.

goatharper: You don't have to hike the whole trail.

Over the past 50 years, I have hiked a number of sections of the trail, in 2 to 4 day chunks. 10/10 would recommend.


How do you know someone has hiked the Appalachian Trail?  Don't worry, they'll tell you

This reminds me of the time the CEO of my publicly traded company took 3 months off and biked across the continental US and then wrote about how great it was in the company newsletter to a company where 70-80% of their workforce has no more than 2 weeks of vacation.  Which includes sick days.

/I don't work there anymore.
//Why yes, Fox news was in the break room 24/7
///I'm beginning to think CEOs aren't as important as their highly inflated salary might lead you to believe.

Great video, I definitely felt for the guy when he started to choke up at the end. What an accomplishment.

/It's a montage, not a timelapse.

I grew up 5 minutes away from the Appalachian Trail. The segment in and around Boiling Springs, PA is beautiful and is an easy day hike. They have a Conservancy office right in town beside the lake, the post office is right across the street, and there's a few convenience stores and a nice cafe right on the square.

It's a nice rustic town I grew up in. The town I currently live in is the next one over, Carlisle, which is much bigger and more developed but still quaint in a lot of ways.

I don't believe this was really shot along the Appalachian Trail.   I mean, there's a sign that shows the border between North Carolina and Georgia,, but I don't hear anyone squealing like a pig.

"4 minute version".

I think subby (and the headline writer of the original article) are the reason we still get gas stations charging us $2.99 99/100 per gallon.
