Appalachian Trail Thru-Hike 1994 (Long Film)

This is a 38 minute slideshow documenting my thru-hike on the Appalachian Trail in 1994.  I mixed the video two years after my hike in Charlotte, NC using an old VHS camera and a mic/mixing system from the Video Editor. The technology is archaic by today’s standards but it captured the moment at the time.  (See this link for a shorter, more recent, and higher quality video production.) 

The slideshow clocks in at nearly 40 minutes (which is likely too long for most), and my kids tell me I sound a bit sad in the early narration. But be patient – things pick up as we close in on Katahdin.  If nothing else, it’s a look back at the A.T. in the early 90’s before modern technology caught up with the Trail and when most hikers recorded their hike with a 35mm camera.  If you want to see a day-by-day log of the hike, then click this link.  Runtime is 38 minutes, 50 seconds.
