Gabe, known as 3 Stoves on the trail, every through hiker gets a trail name, is hiking the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine for charity; half to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and half to the choice of the largest donor (an excellent way to motivate givers).
Gabe has taken spring term off of schooling at the famous MIT to have the adventure of a lifetime with a cause in mind. What's more exciting is he is an excellent writer and tells wonderful stories of the trail and his experience. Following Gabe's trip will be one of the things on my to read list this spring and summer. If you would like to follow you can click on the link here: Gabe's Blog.
