Video: Storm on the Appalachian Trail near Palmerton, PA - 7/16/2016

On Saturday, June 16, 2016, Storm hiked north out of Palmerton, Pennsylvania on the Appalachian Trail, climbing a steep ridge out of town. In these two videos you can see the dramatic change in elevation as Storm talks about his continuing northbound Appalachian Trail thru-hike.

Moe is over 1,200 miles into his northbound Appalachian Trail thru-hike. He began hiking at Springer Mountain in Georgia on April 6, 2016 and has been on the trail since then. He anticipates reaching Mount Katahdin in Maine, the official end of the 2,100 mile Appalachian Trail in the middle of October.


Storm is posting regular updates from the AT on his Trail Journal

Storm is working to raise money for charity as he hikes the Appalachian Trail. He currently has a GoFundMe campaign that is supporting the work of the Catskill Center to protect and preserve the Catskills and the Catskill Park, where Storm lives, enjoys the outdoors and volunteers! Please Give!
