We're hiking the Appalachian Trail east of the Hudson from Peekskill to Garrison, NY!
Oh snap! This the 4th annual! See the ridiculousness that went down last year and try not to miss this one!
I've never done this before but was curious so it'll be a scouting trip. That said, I already checked the maps and it should be manageable for beginners looking to step things. However, it's not get off the train and boom, trailhead. We gotta work to get to the park, work to get to the campsite, and work to get out of the park on the other side. Approximately 13 miles. But mostly over a level stretch of the Appalachian Trail. But you won't notice it anyway since the entire first half of this trip is overlooking a beautiful Hudson River. Word. It's gonna be dope.
HEADS UP, FAM! THE TIMES POSTED ON THE SITE OR ANYWHERE ELSE (LIKE FACEBOOK INVITES) ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AS THE TRIP DAY GETS CLOSER. ONLY THE EMAIL I SEND 24 TO 48 HOURS PRIOR TO THE TRIP DATE AND ONLY AFTER YOU'VE SIGNED UP VIA THE FORM ON THE TRIP INVITE WILL CONTAIN THE MOST ACCURATE TIMES FOR OUR TRIP.

These squeeze packs are dope. I first tried them last Feb (2016) and was like, you know what, they'd be perfect for camping. So, I called them up and they said, you right, Al. So, I'll have some for everyone. Good lookin' out, MunkPack!

If you've been to this site before, you know I've been a big supporter of Traverse for a hot minute. Part of it is how much I regret spending soooo much money for my first epic camping trip. (Looking back, I was such a nube). To this day, I barely used most of that gear. Today, gear's so fresh that being a gearhead is like being crackhead except being a crackhead is cheaper. The point is, don't be a crackhead. Rent out the gear first before you buy... with Traverse. Borrowing is great. But nothing beats carrying a backpack fitted to you or sleeping in a clean, light-weight tent. (Friends who let you borrow tents always seem to have the heaviest, most complex-to-assemble tents. They ain't your friends. You need to train like C. T. Fletcher and have a Ph.d to carry and assemble. Word.) Anyway, click here or on the ad above to get to Traverse and get your gear. So yeah, this all means that Traverse is now sponsoring us, too. Word.
