Trent Hardee ’97, Eric West ’02 and Ben Powell ’07 went on a retreat with Corban Collective, which lead 13 guys on the Appalachian Trail. This was a time of focus, renewal and physical challenges for the participants. “Only time we could get score updates was on the mountain top (Florida State weekend),” Hardee wrote.
Kyle Shirley ’08 began hiking the Appalachian Trail on March 6, 2015. Starting at Springer Mt in Georgia, he walked 2189.2 miles and reached the end of the trail at Mt Katahdin in Maine on September 2, 2015.
After graduating in December 2014 with a degree in Wildlife Biology, I began my thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail. The “AT” stretches 2189.2 miles from Springer Mountain, Georgia, to Mount Katahdin, Maine, through 14 states. I began my hike on March 21, 2015, and completed it September 13, 2015. In this picture, I am standing at the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail in Mount Katahdin, Maine.
