Appalachian Trail Thru-Hike 1994

Here is a video slideshow of my 1994 Thru-Hike on the Appalachian Trail. I mixed the video two years later in Charlotte, NC using an old VHS camera and a mic/mixing system from the Video Editor. The technology is archaic by today’s standards but it captured the moment at the time.

The slideshow clocks in at nearly 40 minutes which is likely too long for most, and my kids tell me I sound a bit sad in the early narration. But be patient – things pick up as we close in on Katahdin.  If nothing else, it’s a look back at the A.T. in the early 90’s – before modern technology caught up with the Trail and when few hikers were equipped to record the moment – other than with a 35mm camera.

I hope to make a shorter, more upbeat, and a more modern version of this video at some point … but here it is in the original 90’s format. I hope you enjoy it. If you want to see a day-by-day log of the hike, then click this link.
