Welcome to The Tree Logs!
We are Will and Meridith Whitaker from Winston-Salem, North Carolina. On February 27, 2016, Will (“Root Beard”) began a 2,189-mile journey from Springer Mountain, Georgia to Mt. Katahdin, Maine on the Appalachian Trail. I (Meridith) met up with him at many points along the way and documented the quest here at The Tree Logs.
Will completed his Appalachian Trail thru-hike on August 7, 2016 at Mt. Katahdin, Maine.
