Save the Date: November 6th “The Climb to Katahdin” film screening

The Norwich screening is sponsored by the Green Mountain Club, whose staff and volunteers maintain the Appalachian Trail throughout Vermont, including here in the Upper Valley. GMC, founder of Vermont’s Long Trail in 1910, also maintains the Long Trail System’s 272 miles of main trail 175 miles of side trails, almost 70 shelters, and a new trail in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom.

Reviews of The Climb to Katahdin:

Joshua Meeks, News Producer at Baton Rouge’s WAFB, says “The Climb to Katahdin is a compelling story of a young couple taking their longest journey together. Incredible visuals of the stunning Appalachian Trail drive this documentary about perseverance, friendship, and the bond of the trail. Insightful, honest, and inspirational is the story of Coltin, Lindsay, and their four-legged companion, Chaser as they tackle the 6-month journey north. While the subject of the Appalachian Trail is certainly nothing new, the Climb to Katahdin offers a vibrantly fresh take on the adventure through America.”

“The honesty of the film makes it a true ambassador to the hiking community and a must-see for anyone who has ever contemplated hiking the A.T. or any other major trail.” Brandi “Styx” Bowers, A.T. Thruhiker- Class of 2012

  1. Back here In Calif it seems you can’t go hiking w/0 running unto Lyme…and we have it abou 1/10 or less as bad as you all back east. My sister- an Olympuc Hopeful (at 52!!!! In three day eventing- the horse thing ) got bit back in Pennsylvania and was told by the Dr the bullseye wasn’t a bite. So now three mos later I’m frantically getting he hyperbaric chambered as many times as she can stand it- and right now she’s on a double strength Zithromax but she kept it to herself for a few months- this tremendous horsewoman now has things slipping thru her hands and the Herx is hell every morning in the dark just to get out to the barn she needs a half a pain pill just for coffee-.then the other half to get thru her many horse barn, riding chores… I’m 13 yrs older than her and food supplement/alt oriented but it’s killing me to see her in such pain- and I just had open heart valve repl therapy. How do you guys DO it back there???? My dream was when got my first valve in’11 to walk the trail- read 60 books on the Appalachian trail alone nevermind about 20-30 on the more western ones …. But now (and second valve done-I had radiation for Hodgkins when I was 21 and in 1970 they didn’t know it messed with your heart) what with a close call from Lyme myself in ’98 it kills me to see her in such pain. What do you guys possibly DO to stay free of those insane spirochetes??? It’s ruining the outdoors for me…. How do you guys POSSIBLY handle the danger????? Thanks for listening. Dulce Shepherd
