Meet National Geographic’s 2012
Hiking Adventurer of the Year
Jennifer Pharr Davis is the overall record holder on the Appalachian Trailhas, has hiked over 11,000 miles on six different continents, and will be visiting two of our locations in October:
Tuesday, October 9th, 7:30 p.m.
15 West Washington St, Lexington, VA
Wednesday, October 10th, 7:30 p.m.
4822 J Valley View Blvd, Roanoke, VA
Jennifer will share stories from her three completed thru-hikes on the Appalachian Trail. She will tell stories from her first hike in 2005, when she was a naive inexperience backpacker traveling the path by herself. She had to overcome danger, tragedy, fears and doubts to make it from Georgia to Maine, but when she arrived at Katahdin, she was a different person.
Learn how that experience made it possible for Jennifer to return to the trail in 2008 and set the women’s record with the help of her husband, Brew. Then discover how Jennifer and Brew worked together to accomplish — what many people thought was impossible for a female hiker — the overall speed record, hiking the trail in 46.5 days (an average of 46.9 miles per day).
