    Default Any good AT Videos or DVD's I should buy?

    I got the DVD called "2000 Miles to Maine" for Christmas, loved it!
    The video featured a guy named Chad who finished his thru hike along with a few others. Just curious if anyone in the video are whiteblaze.net memebers...

    Any other good videos out there?
    I'm in the process of reading the book, "A walk in the woods"

    AT Videos:
    "Trek"
    "Walking for Freedom on the Appalachian Trail"
    "Southbounders" (fictional)
    "5 million steps to Maine" (I think)

    All I can think of,

    I agree TREK is very good, better than 2000 miles, available on Amazon last I checked.

    Can't speak for other videos since I haven't seen them.

    Appalachian Impressions is also a good video. I also agree that Trek is a very good video.

    The only video that I own or have seen on the AT is also Trek. I thought that it was excellent. The only thing that I think they could have done more was show the scenery.... but if you havent done the AT yet I guess its a good thing.

    I won Southbounders at a raffle at SORUCK, It is very insightful, about the relationships that develop on the trail and WITH the trail. Great scenery and some good advice.

    Appalachian Impressions is the best IMO as far as info goes.
    Trek is good as is Walking with Freedom.
    I thought that 2000 Miles was the worst but then again, I was out there hiking that year and met some of those hikers...one was a total a$$ that had a "campfire" in the Smokies with 20' high flames and was feeding Goldfish crackers thru the fence to a black bear.
    5 Million Steps is good if a little old and I just got another (new) video from ebay that although it is produced recently on DVD, it is an older film from the '70s or early '80s by the appearance of the equipment and clothing. It is very good film quality (maybe the best quality of any because the original was on film) but I don't remember the name...I'll post it once I check it at home.
    Walking With Spring documenting Earl Shaffer's hike is also very good.
    Southbounders, although fictional seems to bring out more trail emotions and feelings within me than the others. Good story.
    If you can get ahold of the 2 part show from the PBS Backpacker Magazine produced show called Trailside it is probably the best AT video that I've seen IMO. They sent video cameras with 20 thruhikers in the early '90s and let them record their own hikes. What the final show was edited down to is fairly impressive and to me, relates more feelings and emotions as to what it is really like out there.

    Can anyone help me find a copy of "Hiker hicks"? Crumb posted a thread on it just before the hacker attack earlier this month and never got reposted. His birthday is around the corner and would be just tickled to get his own copy.
    thanks

    I bought "Appalachian Imressions" today at a Outdoor Supply store in Hickory, NC.
    It was the last one they had.
    I plan on watching it tonight.

    I'm still going to order "Trek"

    Thanks for all the replies!

    I just got the, "Walking With Freedom" video and it would of been a decent video if it was not for the very poor quality. A lot of pixilation and blurry from over copying.

    I have never seen Walking With Freedom but I was pretty impressed with the quality of Trek. Don't get me wrong, I wouldnt consider it "professional" quality but given the circumstances I think it was shot pretty well.

    What?

    Where did you get it?

    Those DVDS are crystal clear unless someone else is making them.

    I know, I made it.

    My DVD was perfect quality. At least support a fellow hiker and shell out a few bucks for an originial copy.
