September General Meeting: "Hiking the Triple Crown: Appalachian Trail, the Pacific Crest and the Continental Divide"


Hiking can be a real adventure, particularly when you devote weeks or even months to a specific trail. Nobody knows the joy of hiking better than Richard Smith, whose sense of adventure has taken him across North America and around the world on some of the most challenging and spectacular trails.

5:30 pm Growth Mgmt Committee Meets in Front Lobby
6:30 pm Social Time and New Member Orientation
7:00 pm Speaker: Richard Smith

Meeting Location:
Hilton Garden Inn
1700 East 9th Avenue
Tampa FL 33605 (in Ybor)

Richard will share his stories of hiking the three longest wilderness trails in the United States: the Appalachian Trail, the Pacific Crest and the Continental Divide. At the time he completed The Triple Crown of Hiking in 2007, less than 100 people had done so. All three hikes combined for almost 8,000 miles from border to border through 22 states.
Richard has also hiked the Camino de Santiago in Spain and climbed the 19,340-foot Kilimanjaro Mountain in Africa. Tell your hikers friends about this program and catch Richard before he leaves on another hike!
