Hungry Bear started at the NST
As the first thru-hikers are already on their way along the NST, another long-distance hiker is taking on the challenge of the North South Trail today.
“Hello, I’m Hungry Bear and I’d like to introduce myself. I’m 55 years old, and at this age, you start to think about what you’ve done so far and, more importantly, what you still want to accomplish. Somehow, work didn’t bring the fulfillment it used to, and the kids have been out of the house for a while.
Hmm, so what to do? A big THRU HIKE in Germany as a possible option? Since I didn’t want to wait until retirement, I decided to go for it. I handed in my resignation, and with the time left, I started gathering everything I needed. And here I am, facing my 3,582 km on foot!!! I can hardly describe the excitement for what awaits me from shortly after Easter until October 2022.”
Of course, we, from the North South Trail Initiative, wish him nothing but the best weather and pleasant encounters on his journey along the NST. If you want to follow his journey, you can do so on FindPenguins:
