Appalachian Trail Conservancy Says NO to Recognizing Thru-Hikers



(From the Air Date, February 6th, 2021)
The Appalachian Trail is a 2180+ mile long public footpath that travels the scenic, wooded, pastoral Appalachian mountains over the course of 14 states.  It is maintained by the National Park Service, the US Forest Service, the Appalachian Trail Conservancy & a ton of volunteers.
A recent announcement by the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) states that thru-hikers (people that attempt to hike the entire trail at once) will not be recognized for 2021.  The reasoning is to attempt to limit the amount of people on the trail.  The Carolina Outdoors discusses and clarifies what this means for the millions (yes, 3 million people utilize the Trail).

Gear Aid & Prolonging the Life of Equipment



(From the 1/30/21 Air Date):  Beaty Jackson has worked in the outdoor business for over 40-years.  He knew that was what he wanted to do after an extended hike on the Appalachian Trail.  Since then he has worked within manufacturing, outfitting & sales & has learned that the gear and equipment involved are more than just items:  they represent memories and experiences.
Gear Aid is a company he represents that helps prolong the life of equipment.  Tent & Boot repairs, reviving outerwear‘s waterproofing & fixing zippers are just some of the many solutions their products provide.
Jackson shares his ethos & knowledge in helping make our gear last longer.
