my son and his lifelong friend returned from a six-month adventure. They had hiked the entire Appalachian Trail in one epic journey. After several days of rest and a satiated voracious appetite, he told tales of his adventure. I knew their clarity would fade with time, so I jotted them down in an old notebook. The list grew and deserved to be committed to a more lasting format. After typing them, my challenge was to craft them into a book. Those early actions in the fall of 2015 were the genesis of my interest in writing. I currently have two irons in the fire but hope to have them both published in 2023.


If you already purchased a copy of my son's story, The Endless Trail: Socrates' Sandals on the Appalachian Trail, I hope you enjoyed the guys' adventure, and thank you for your purchase. My hope is that this story will help answer the question of who thru-hikers are and why they take on such a monumental task. The story was a collaboration between my son, his friend, and me. Socrates had the final say on which stories and details were included.
