Meet the Quirin family—Derrick, “Sherpa,” Bekah, “Kanga,” and their one-year-old baby Ellie, “Roo.” These three are hoping to complete a southbound flip-flop thru hike of the Appalachian Trail this year, and they are already well on their way! We met up with the Quirins on the first day of their thru hike to capture some of their early moments on the trail. Check it out in this month’s episode of BRO-TV! You can read more about the Quirin family and four other adventurous families in the April issue of the magazine.
