Roger Tetreault of Boxborough took the phrase “take a hike” literally when he decided to walk the 2,176.4 miles of the Appalachian Trail. A carpenter by trade, Roger is a backpacking and hiking enthusiast. After ten years of hiking the local terrain he decided early in 2008 to hike the Appalachian Trail.
It took Roger 5.5 months to hike from Springer Mountain in Georgia to Mount Katahdin in Maine. He hiked from March 25 until September 7. During the hike he encountered temperatures ranging from 18º to 100º plus snow, lots of rain, deer, wild horses, wild long horned cattle, wild boar, mountain lions, bears, snakes, and many wonderful fellow thru-hikers.
Roger “Hammer” Tetreault will share his ‘virtual hike’ with a multi-media presentation for hikers and non-hikers alike.
