The Ordinary Adventurer:
Hiking Vermont's Long Trail
In 2002, restless and searching for the longest possible journey to undertake without "quitting the day job," novice hiker Jan Leitschuh laced up some new trail shoes, hefted an unfamiliar backpack and set foot on Vermont's rugged 270-mile Long Trail. Along with her opinionated, heart-attack challenged hiking partner Clyde, the pair tested the outer limits of their physical endurance, friendship and good humor - walking from Massachussetts to Canada in the process.
