Jeff Ryan ’80 to talk about his love of hiking Appalachian Trail Oct. 25
Jeff Ryan ’80 of South Portland, Maine, will speak about his love of exploring the outdoors Wednesday, Oct. 25, at the Fond du Lac Public Library, 32 Sheboygan St. The program will begin at 6 p.m., and admission is free.
Ryan has hiked thousands of miles, including a six-month hike on the Pacific Crest Trail. In 1985, he began section-hiking the Appalachian Trail with a childhood friend. That experience is the focus of his first book, Appalachian Odyssey: A 28-year Hike on America’s Trail. His second book about the Appalachian Trail, Blazing Ahead: Benton MacKaye, Myron Avery and the Rivalry that Built the Appalachian Trail, was published last month by Appalachian Mountain Club Books.
Ryan will sell and sign copies of his books at the talk.
