About the Author
Tim Hewitt lived in Maine when he undertook this journey of a lifetime, and thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail under the trail name Paddler in 1999. A software engineer and engineering manager by trade, Tim's love of the outdoors has kept him in the woods, fields and streams all of his life. After spending nearly six years living in Malaysia, he currently lives in North Carolina, and enjoys getting out into the mountains as much as possible when he is not writing.

An enjoyable story about an ordinary family man, who embarks on a long end to end hike of the Appalachian Trail.
I especially enjoyed the daily trail journal, as it reveals the high points and also the low points of such a trip.
His thirteen year old son joined him for five weeks during the Summer and his daily journal is included as well.
It was interesting to compare the two journals for any given day. What may have been a tough day for dad, was not so tough for a teenager.... I guess youth really IS wasted on the young!!
All in all, a quite enjoyable book!! :)
