Trevor Thomas Blind Hiker
          An accomplished long distance hiker, Trevor Thomas became the first blind person in history to complete  an  unassisted, solo end-to-end thru-hike of the entire  2175 mile Appalachian Trail (AT) from Springer Mountain, GA to Katahdin, ME (2008).   Interestingly, Zero/Zero refers to his eyesight, and was the trail name given him by companions he hiked with along the way.
          In 2009, he summited Mount Mitchell, the tallest peak on the East Coast, and Long's Peak in Colorado.  In 2010,  he completed the 2,654 mile Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) with members of his team, Team FarSight.   He  summited Mount Whitney, the tallest mountain in the contiguous U.S,  and in doing so became the first blind person to stand on top.
           In 2011 Trevor and Team FarSight thru-hiked the Tahoe Rim Trail (he is the first blind person to have completed the trek).  He completed 5 sections of the  Colorado Trail alone, using trekking poles and ecolocation to guide him.   Trevor and Team FarSight had planned to complete the Continental Divide Trail  in 2011, but were unable to start due to severe flooding and extreme avalanche danger in Montana which prevented them from attempting the nearly 3100 mile trek.  He is hoping to try again in the future. 
           Trevor has completed two thru-hikes of the Shenandoah Mountains, four thru-hikes of the Smokey Mountains, and is the first blind person to thru-hike the John Muir Trail (CA). He completed the Mountains to Sea Trail (NC), a 950 mile trail from Clingman's Dome in the Smokies to Jockey's Ridge State Park in the Outer Banks with his Guide Dog, Tennille in June, 2013.  The pair completed the Long Trail from Vermont to Canada in July, 2014.  In addition, they navigated the Tahoe Rim Trail in August, 2014-- the first solo hike of that trail by a blind person.
           He enjoys rock climbing, adventure racing, and of course, long distance hiking.  He is currently a sponsored athlete and motivational speaker, and is working on a book about his life experiences.  A voracious reader with a photographic memory he can no longer use, he listens to books on tape and relies on his MacPro, iPad, and iPhone to read emails and connect with fans.  He now resides in Charlotte, NC.
