BEONLINEWITHAMC - Climbing Mt Whitney

Wednesday, May 6, 2020 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Come join us on a slide show of a trip to Mount Whitney in the Sierra Nevadas. We'll see plenty of awesome photos and hear how the trip was set up, what we did to prepare, and the final three days to the summit and back. We'll also cover a few other options that anyone interested in summiting the highest peak in the contiguous United States may take. We'll have time for some questions and answers at the end. Presented by HB Leader Jim Robinson.
The presentation will begin at 7:00 PM and last approximately 1 hour.

BEONLINEWITHAMC- Derick Lugo: The Unlikely Thru-Hiker, Author Event

Tuesday, April 28, 2020 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Derick Lugo had never hiked or camped a day in his life. This Brooklyn-born, New York City urbanite hopped a train to Georgia, grabbed a taxi at the station, and told the cab driver to drop him off at the beginning of the Appalachian Trail. Then he did as he has always done - put one foot in front of the other and never looked back.

The Unlikely Thru-Hiker is his debut memoir, published in 2019 by Appalachian Mountain Club Books.

From back cover: "Sales of AMC Books fund our mission of protecting the Northeast outdoors."
