Ten Minutes

Written by: Katherine Imp

In 10 minutes I will be driving to Georgia with Brandon, Emily, and Jason. So here goes my stream of consciousness:

Two years ago I had this idea to make a film and hike the Appalachian Trail. It seemed simple enough. Buy a camera, wander around the woods with it, and walk generally in the northward direction.

As of this week, we have approximately ten sponsors interested in providing food and gear for our trip. We have permits and waivers and a partnership agreement with One Way Street Productions. We have a blog and website and news articles. We have all of our food for the next 3 months organized in rows in the basement of my parent’s house. We did a photo shoot in street clothes and gear clothes.

We did pre-trip interviews with bright lights and wireless mics. We’ve told everyone we’ve ever met about this trip via facebook and blogspot and business cards and phone calls.
I think this is going to be the biggest adventure of my life.

Here we go…….


  1. Kate & Co! I wish you the best of luck and fair weather for your travels! Can't wait to hear about your adventures.

  2. Sounds like you've got your bases covered. Trail conditions should be much improved as you walk north, unless something new pops up. I think you'll hit the Smokies before all of that snow melts, but the trail should be well packed. Good Luck, and have a nice walk.

  3. Dude. We're not in Paris.
