Welcome. You're about to hop on the Appalachian Trail and become part of the 2009 thru-hike of Chris Hennig, whose trail name was "Feed Bag." While Feed Bag took in all the personal benefits of spending hours alone in the woods (getting in better shape, crying, pondering the meaning of life), there is a purpose greater than that for which he hiked: to make the world a better place for children. And you can be a part of this journey starting now...and help make a difference!

Appalachian Trail Beard Time Lapse

Filed under: Blog Posts — chrishennig @ 8:03 pm October 14, 2009
I forget how to blog. So here’s a video to sum up the hike to the tune of “Don’t you wish your boyfriend had a beard like me?” Kidding. The song is actually an aria called “Nessun Dorma” from the Puccini opera Turandot. Many 2009 AT hikers will already be familiar with the tune as we were forced to listen to it for inspiration at “The Mayor’s House” in Unionville, NY. I ended up loving the song :) The application to our hike was winning, hence the last word you hear in the song: “Vincero!” (I will win!)

And yes, there will be a few more blogs before the website is set in stone.
