The Appalachian Trail Project

There’s a website called Kickstarter that enables people who have an idea to solicit help in working on a project. If the project doesn’t “make” – that is, if there aren’t enough funds generated – nobody pays and the project goes away.

I’m a big believer in the micro-loan way, giving individuals the opportunity to do what they want to by developing a network willing to fund their work. It seems rational to me.

So when I came across this particular project, a young man who wants to hike the Appalachian Trail and write a book about his experiences in order to dispel the stereotypes of the region, I was hooked.

I’m definitely going to pony up cash for this project and I hope you do too.

Now, I don’t know Forrest and I haven’t talked to him about the project. I know nothing about him (although I’m going to send him a note for sure). So let the buyer beware.

For me, though, this seems like an amazing project. One I’m happy to support.
