Adventure Possible is excited to announce the recipients of the first annual thru-hiker sponsorship: Johnny Monroe and Amanda Zorc.
Beginning March 14, 2015, Johnny and Amanda begin their Northbound (NOBO) thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail. The duo will be creating a photographic documentary of the entire trail, and they will also be filming a one of a kind first person documentary on the journey.
Amanda and Johnny aim to share their thru-hiking story with those who long to experience the amazing AT adventure but are unable to do so. Through photography and film, they will show all the amazing views and landscapes, the fun, the fear, the people, and the wild times of the epic Appalachian Trail.
As recipients of the AT Thru-Hiker Sponsorship from Adventure Possible and in return for their marketing participation, Amanda and Johnny will receive cash, swag, trail magic, and visibility to help them successfully thru-hike and share the Appalachian Trail adventure with others.
Let us bring you adventure every day.

Final Thru-Hiker Update
As often happens to hikers attempting the Appalachian Trail, Amanda and Johnny were knocked off the trail and were not able to complete their thru-hike. Amanda suffered a foot injury, and Johnny left the trail shortly after Damascus, VA (about 500 miles) for other reasons. We all enjoyed their stories and photos, which you can read and enjoy on the blog below.
