Post-Hike Update

June 30, 2011

Thank you for your continuing interest in my post-hike activities. I finished a short adventure team challenge with No Barriers USA in Colorado. Please visit for a description of the event.

We came in eighth out of thirteen teams. Unfortunately the team made a decision to use maps, as opposed to GPS. That might have cost us about two hours. Oh well.

I found a publisher for a book about my hike of the AT. I am currently working with Beavers Pond Press.

Gary has put together some videos. Both the documentary and book might come out early next year if all goes well.

We are still working on funding for a business opportunity. Given the current state of the economy, that is not surprising.

I am trying to link this blog to Face Book and other social networking sites. I will keep you updated as things progress.


Post-Hike Update

June 8, 2011

This is an update to my post-hike activities. I am currently writing a book about the hike. I have a rough draft and am getting estimates on the cost of self-publishing. I hope to have something published by early2012.

Gary is working on the documentary. I believe he has the same target date in mind.

I am also speaking both in the Twin Cities and nationally about the hike. I am looking for an agent.

We are seeking funding for the business opportunity. We have a product that will take navigation for persons with visual impairments beyond standard GPS but the economy does not lend itself to raising funds.

I am planning a much shorter (3-5 day) hike on the Superior Hiking Trail in August. Some friends and I are working on setting an exact date.
