Below is an update on what I am doing to prepare for my hike of the Appalachian Trail and the documentary we plan to make. I have been working out several times a week and walking a great deal.

Award-winning videographer Garry L. Steffens will film me working at my current telemarketing job. I am grateful to have a job at all, given these economic times but it is not what I went to law school for. This underscores the message I am trying to communicate that having a disability makes finding employment matching one’s skills and abilities unnecessarily difficult.

After that, I will meet with a potential law school student who happens to be blind. I hope my experience can help her understand what accommodations she will need to get through law school.

We are also trying to raise funding for the hike and documentary. We are contacting every person, organization, and group we can think of. We realize these are difficult economic times. Please visit http://www.blindhiker.com for more information.

Happy Holidays,

Mike Hanson
