Overview

After realizing that his life had lost its savor, Aaron dares to season it with adventure on the Appalachian Trail, where serendipity and toil would weave a path of self-discovery, a change of world view, and delightful (and some odd) characters and turns of events.

Step into Aaron's boots for 2,167 miles of peaks and valleys-physically, mentally and spiritually-as he backpacks north from Georgia to Maine. You'll find yourself itching to throw on your own boots and hit the Trail... whether your boots are made of leather or long lost goals or new aspirations!

"Aaron's unique way of expressing his thoughts and feelings along the way is revealing and interesting, as are his hardships and friendships, which remind me of my brother, Earl."
~John Shaffer
Secretary & Treasurer of the Earl Shaffer Foundation, Inc.
(Earl Shaffer was the first Appalachian Trail thru-hiker, 1948.)

"Aaron has uncommon talent in expressing himself; he is a wonderful and interesting communicator. I really like his alter-ego. Remember The Carrot is a wonderful read!"
~Bill Irwin
Author, "Blind Courage". First blind AT thru-hiker.
