     Join Appalachian Trail Thru Hiker and Catskills supporter Moe Lemire at the  Pine HIll Community Center  for a presentation and discussion about his 2016 hike of the entire Appalachian Trail.  After 168 days, 2189.10 miles, 14 states, and three pairs of boots, Moe Lemire successfully completed his thru hike of the Appalachian Trail. Simply put, he walked from Georgia to Maine.   Moe has said that it was both the most difficult thing he has ever attempted and one of the most rewarding experiences he has ever had. It is not an exaggeration to say that the trip changed his life.   Moe will be recounting my Appalachian Trail thru hike through my photos, stories, and videos. Moe will also have much of his gear from his hike to show you what a thru hiker carries. Moe is also happy to answer questions..
