Info

Sam Ducharme set out on a 2180-mile, 14-state backpacking trip from Springer Mountain, Georgia to Mt. Katahdin, Maine. During his six-month journey, he documented the rugged beauty of the Appalachian Mountains, the wildlife, the hardships encountered on the trail, as well as the people, culture, and humanity at its finest. Come join him as he takes you through the trail towns, over the mountaintops, and through the backcountry. The images and stories will leave you with a renewed awe of the beauty of our country and its people. See his gear, how he cooked, and hear what it is like sleeping in a hammock for six months through three seasons.

Signed copies of Sam's book, Sole Searching on the Appalachian Trail, will be available for purchase after the program.

Seating is limited, so registration begins December 31.

About the presenter: Sam Ducharme is a retired K9 Officer and a lifelong resident of Connecticut. He has two adult sons, both serving in the United States Air Force. As an avid outdoorsman, and finding the empty nest, Sam decided to buy a backpack and a plane ticket to Georgia. From there, he started walking north. With no prior backpacking experience, he learned on the trail. Gear, trail nutrition, enduring the elements, and the logistics involved in a long-distance backpacking trip were hard lessons. After 20 years working within Connecticut's prisons, the search for a positive recharge resulted in a life-changing journey.
