As I settle into the “real world” after the trail I’ve realized one thing…that I like talking about the trail! I don’t mind rounds of rapid fire questions about me, hikers, or the trail. I like to talk about what I learned, what I liked, and what I did on a daily basis from Georgia to Maine. I especially enjoy giving presentations to any group of mostly interested audience members. This past week I was fortunate to be asked to give a 30 minute presentation to the Rotary Club of Santa Barbara (which I am a member of, so the audience was stacked in my favor!). I arrived early, set up my tent and my gear, and after lunch I spoke for a half an hour with almost 80 people about the Appalachian Trail. After my presentation many people stuck around and asked more questions and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it! Thank you to all who participated and I hope you had as much fun as I did!
