George Brenckle will be our guest speaker sharing his journey that many talk about but few accomplish. In his words: George Brenckle speaks of: Last year, on Memorial Day weekend, my youngest son and I embarked on the journey of a lifetime: hiking the 2,189-mile Appalachian Trail from Maine to Georgia. During the next six months, we walked over 6,250,000 steps and climbed up and down over 505,000 feet in elevation - the equivalent of ascending Mt Everest 17 times.

George Brenckle will be our guest speaker sharing his journey that many talk about but few accomplish.  In his words:

 

Last year, on Memorial Day weekend, my youngest son and I embarked on the journey of a lifetime:  hiking the 2,189-mile Appalachian Trail from Maine to Georgia.  During the next six months, we walked over 6,250,000 steps and climbed up and down over 505,000 feet in elevation - the equivalent of ascending Mt Everest 17 times.  We burned over 800,000 calories and I lost 40 pounds.  Also during the trip, we had hours and hours to talk about the anything and everything; current events, philosophy, the profound and the preposterous.  We experienced both moments of great joy of astonishing discomfort.

 

I will describe the genesis of our endeavor, share pictures and stories from our journey and strive to articulate some of the insights and life lessons that resulted.  Any and all questions regarding preparation and planning, trail life and the characters you meet, gear, physical and emotional capabilities, weather, food, and supplies will be welcome.


 

This SIM Silver Program will be, as usual, at 4:00 PM at Babson Hall, Babson College, followed by dinner at Pappa Ratzi, Wellesley.
