“About six years ago I saw a Nat Geo special about the A.T., and ever since then it’s been calling me. I’m just out for a little hike in the woods. I’m trying to get out of the matrix for a little bit. It’s so easy to go to work, to come home, get up, and go to work. You get in that rut. That’s not living. I want to get off the couch and enjoy real life.”
