Adkins Speaks in Charleston, WV

The notice in the Charleston (WV) Daily Mail by Monica Orosz on 20 February 2008 describes the upcoming presentation by Habitual Hiker Leonard Adkins with this headline: "Program will show what it's like to hike Appalachian Trail".
"Adkins, who has turned avocation into vocation by writing about hiking in 15 books and for magazines and newspapers, chronicled his most recent journey in a series of columns that appeared in the Daily Mail from last March through November.

"...Adkins will return to Charleston March 5 to present a free program at the University of Charleston.

"The multimedia program, accompanied by folk and classical music, is actually a compilation of his many hikes on the Appalachian Trail. The program is designed to show what a typical thru hike - the term for hiking the entire length of the trail - is like."
