Tracking Zero and Tennille 2015

Benton MacKaye Trail

by cyberhiker01 on 04/10/14

Day 1-April 6: Today before we started hiking we chatted with Mountain Squid, the man who checked me in to start hiking the AT 6 years ago today.  It was great to catch up with him.  We hiked 12 miles; along the way we did some filming with our new cameras: the Sony Action Cam is awesome.  Thanks so much AHNU for getting them for us. Found a great campsite, made a fire, warmed our tired bones for a bit, and are now hunkered down in our tents, preparing for an impending storm.  All in all, a good first day on the BMT.  Much like last year, we are the only ones hiking it thus far.  It is so nice having Jesse Pegg along.  Thank you, Rachel for letting him come out with me.

The team hiked the CT to raise money & awareness for his charity, Team FarSight FoundationInc., which Trevor founded in 2014.  Its mission is to empower blind children & youth through the development of hiking & other backcountry programs.  The goal is to teach participants problem-solving skills & give them the confidence they will need to be both productive & competitive in all aspects of their lives.  Additionally, the foundation is working to break down barriers between the sighted & blind communities and to challenge societal misconceptions of the abilities of the blind.

Team FarSight Foundation, Inc. is a recognized 501(c)(3) charity & a One Percent for the Planet non-profit partner.  Please help publicize their hike so that they can continue the work of empowering the blind.  Thanks to all those who have already donated.  Donations can be made securely through the foundation's website:
