7:30-8:30 pm. After twenty years working within Connecticut's prisons, retired K9 officer and avid outdoorsman Sam Ducharme decided to embark on the Appalachian Trail. During his six month, 2,180 mile journey from Springer Mountain, Georgia, to Mt. Katahdin, Maine, he documented the rugged beauty of nature, the hardships encountered on the trail, as well as humanity at its finest. In his presentation, Sam will take you through the trail towns, over the mountaintops and into the back country. The images and stories will leave you with a renewed awe of the beauty of our country and its people. You will see his gear, how he cooked, and hear what it is like sleeping in a hammock for six months through three seasons. After this life-changing experience, Sam returned to the trail the following year, connecting with aspiring Thru Hikers, paying it forward, and returning once more to the summit of Katahdin.
