Storyline

Inspired by Bill Bryson's A Walk in the Woods, director Douglas Morse and producer Heide Estes traveled to the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail in Georgia. They wanted to capture the stories of those who had planned for months, left families, left jobs and set aside half a year for the trek to Maine and then quit the trail after their first week. Hundreds of them. Some after one day. Morse and Estes found some hikers leaving the trail, but became fascinated with all of the hikers they met. From Jack, who got stuck with an angry dog, to Malice and Kentucky, the Cheech and Chong of the A.T., to Matt and Angie, who planned to get married on the trail when they reached Pennsylvania. On the first day out, Estes and Morse met Chad, an easy going guy in excellent shape who found himself tempted to walk off the trail after just a few days. Hikers like Chad become our eyes and ears on the journey to Maine's Mount Katahdin, more than 2000 miles from Springer Mountain in Georgia. Written by The Director

Genuine depiction of Trail life
18 April 2007 | by kickatreeSee all my reviews

You want to know what it is like on the AT? Watch this flick. Chad's experience on the trail moved me in ways that only someone who felt the same anxiety in the beginning could be affected. If you try to see this documentary as a "how to" guide, then you will not see the real meaning behind the "hike your own hike" attitude that besets most of the thru-hikers attempting to complete the trail each year. Videography was good considering the logistics behind keeping in touch with the gypsy backpacker Chad as he makes his way to Maine. The film's style resembles a video-blog, but the style was very effective method of communicating trail life as it happened for the benefit of the home viewer. kickatree AT'96
