Are you considering an unlikely adventure, but
- Are concerned that you don’t know enough?
- Worry you won’t fit in?
- Aren’t sure where to start?
- Have never done anything like this hike before?
With no experience, minimal planning, and way too heavy backpack, Derick Lugo took the first step on the Appalachian Trial and accomplished an adventure no one expected.
On a whim, Derick had a cab driver drop him off at the beginning of what would be a 2,200-mile hike. This was a transformational journey that inspired him to write a book about his unlikely hiking adventure.
He now inspires others to have their own unlikely adventures. He helps people break stigmas, throw caution to the wind, and pursue their adventure bucket lists.

I just finished reading The Unlikely Thru-Hiker, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who loves the outdoors. Lugo is an engaging, detailed storyteller! I felt as if l were walking with him in the woods. His positive attitude paired with honesty was, dare I say it: FABULOUS. I loved how he described those he met on the trail, and I enjoyed the dialogue full of wit! Get this book and read it!!
