Appalachian Trail 2022
Dudley hiked the first part of the Appalachian Trail starting on April 6, 2022, from Georgia to Pennsylvania – he was forced off the trail with Covid during the first week of June. He “restarted” the adventure in June 2023 and finished on August 20th. Watch on YOUTUBE. Most of the gear he began with made it to Katahdin, but some did not. This list is what Dudley had with him when he finished.
