Author and avid hiker, Jeffrey Ryan discussed his new book, Appalachian Odyssey: A 28-Year Hike of America’s Trail, at Thos. Moser showroom (in Georgetown) on Tuesday, July 12th.
Over the course of 28 years, Ryan hiked all the segments of the Appalachian Trail and learned about setting goals, chasing dreams and achieving them. He finished hiking all sections of the trail in 2013. To a small but engaged group, he highlighted a few stories from the book and showed many photographs of his extensive time on the Appalachian Trail. Some stories were a bit unbelievable.
From Maine, Ryan will travel around the country in his 1985 Vanagon for a 40-plus-stop book tour (mostly at L.L. Bean stores, he used to write for their catalog). Thos. Moser is a Maine-based business, hence the connection as the first stop on the five-month tour.
If you enjoy hiking in general, love hiking parts of the Appalachian Trail, or are thinking of doing the entire trail from Georgia to Maine (or vice versa), the Appalachian Odyssey should make for an interesting read. You can get it on Amazon here.
