Overview

We are joined by The Unlikely Thru-Hiker with Derick Lugo. Derick Lugo had never hiked or camped a day in his life. This Brooklyn-born, New York City urbanite hopped a train to Georgia, grabbed a taxi at the station, and told the cab driver to drop him off at the beginning of the Appalachian Trail. Then he did as he has always done - put one foot in front of the other and never looked back. After hiking for more than 2,000 miles, he now feels invincible and plans to cross the Sahara barefoot. (Not really, but when an ambitious spirit is successful, it will strive for even greater accomplishments.) This is an ONLINE MEETING via the Zoom platform. Registration is mandatory. For security, credentials are only provided to registered participants. Thanks for understanding. Register on EventBrite to receive dial in details: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/138541861437
