We hear today from 19 year old Cody Campbell. The Fayette County native and VCHS graduate just recently returned home after completing his 173 day hike up the Appalachian Trail. Campbell says his motivation was pretty simple, it was just simply something he really wanted to do.
And, before heading out on a hiking journey of more than 4 months, there was some preparation that went into it.
Campbell started his hike back in March in Georgia and wrapped up last month in Maine, covering the 173 days and 2181.9 miles. We will hear more from Campbell coming up tomorrow during NewsCenter.
