Every year several thousand people attempt to hike all 2180 miles of the Appalachian Trail in the eastern United States. Being the first of the big three hikes in America, it is where long-distance hikers go to cut their teeth.
Keith Foskett has another reason. Dromomania, or the uncontrollable urge to wander, has been part of his life since childhood.
Accompanied by an array of eclectic characters including a world champion juggler, a drug dealer and a sex-starved builder from Minnesota, his experience is far from normal.
Battling his own demons, it’s physically exhausting — as well as psychologically challenging.
His adventure weaves a route through some of America’s wildest landscapes and history, and is told with insight, humour and reflection.
