Motivational and Inspirational Presentations

Successfully completing our AT thru-hike on September 25, 2006, was an exciting and life-changing experience for us; an adventure that has had a profound impact on how we view the world around us and that has offered us new insights into how we approach life. Our desire is to share these insights and inspirations with others.

We have developed several informational and motivational presentations tailored for churches, businesses, civic and professional organizations, scout troops and hiking clubs. These audio/visual presentations offer inspiration to others to pursue their dreams, using our six-month adventure on the trail as an example.

"Spiritual Reflections from The Appalachian Trail"

It was not long after beginning our journey that we came to the realization that there was something else happening within ourselves. Traveling the 2,175 miles of the Appalachian Trail, surrounded by the wonders of creation and finding a peaceful sanctuary in the solitude of our environment, brought us fresh perspectives on our life’s journey; the past, present and future.

What we also discovered were the many striking similarities between our experiences on the AT and the experiences of walking in faith. Using analogies from our time on the trail, we focus on the spiritual lessons derived from being on the trail for six months; lessons that everyone can readily apply to their personal Christian walk. Touched on are eight key points; “The Path”, “Perseverance”, “Prayer”, “People”, “Praise”, “Possessions”, “Pride” and “Service”. Each point has its foundation in a biblical reference and is brought into perspective through anecdotes and photos from the AT.
