Hello, white-blazers,

I'd like to share with you the condensed version of my 2013 thru-hike: 7 months of walking packed down into 3.5 minutes of video. I hope you enjoy it:

This video is tied to our Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for post production of a feature film about the AT. This is an ambitious campaign with the goal of producing a professional documentary that will give a rich and engaging look into the AT. Please check out our campaign and consider supporting the film (www.maketheATmovie.com (http://maketheatmovie.com)). We've got 16 days left to raise a substantial amount of money for the film, and it will take the effort and support of a lot of hikers to make this thing a success (if we don't reach our goal by January 31st then Kickstarter collects none of the pledged support and the film remains un-funded).

Thanks for checking this work out. If you'd like to see more stories from my hike, there is a series of free videos available online at www.theATmovie.com (http://theATmovie.com)

Sunshine and I are off to Harper's Ferry to continue filming interviews and to gather archival photography that will tell the historical story of the film. Thanks for considering supporting this project. We hope you're able to get out on the trail this weekend!

So what is the Difference between this and anything else that's out their about the AT, If you want me and other people to donate you are going to have to do a better job at convincing us that this is something worthwild, and not just another AT documentary? You know their is like a million videos on youtube about the AT, Sorry but that is the way i feel about it. RED-DOG

You should check out the vids on his website. The quality is far superior to most videos about the AT. I really enjoyed following his thru hike and am glad he will be doing this.

Nicely done and congrats on your thru......have to agree tho I'm not really sure why we need more and more documentaries or what is vastly different from others - imo

There are a lot of vids about the AT but...I still enjoyed this one and the music in the background. Good Luck. Everyone feels that their hike is special and it is. Hiking the trails wherever they may be instills in each of us, something unique for that individual. Ask someone what the Appalachian Trail means to them and each reply will likely be just as different as there are people that hike it or live in it. I grew up there in those hills and it means something special for me. It's like painting such as watercolor or oil. Each person will see the same scene differently and interpret it differently on the canvas. I don't think there are too many videos of the AT. Just my opinion and good luck with your endeavor.
