Celiac Appalachian Trail Thruhiker!

Recommended Posts

Now I know that some of us discussed this possibility in the past year -- well -- it's being done and he's got a blog!

I wish he'd post about what he's eating, but I imagine he really doesn't have a lot of time.

I can't believe how much awareness about celiac I've seen develop over the past year.

The first time that I met a celiac was thru-hiking the AT, somewhere around Tennessee/North Carolina in 1990.

Ahhh...

I could not have done it again as a celiac last year, but this year, what with you folks, could totally manage it!

Thanks for posting this. His friends idea for bear repellent was great, I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants. His photos are nice also. I wish I was with him, I always wanted to do the trail.
