Hiking USA

I’ve done several long-distance hikes in America: the entirety of the Appalachian Trail, Vermont’s Long Trail and the Northville-Placid Trail, the ;after being in New York’s Adirondack State Park. The Appalachian one took 6 months to complete and over the course of that period I shed 40 pounds (18kg) of weight. The trail diet wasn’t a nutritionist’s dream but then when you’re pounding out the miles with a 40lb pack on your back there’s little consideration of what bad calories are. You just need what you can get.
