In 1930 Eiler Larsen set out on what is the first recorded attempt
of what we call an Appalachian Trail thru-hike. He didn't make it
in one year. He got a little distracted. In the final episode of
our first season, we're going to tell Larsen's story: how he was
drawn to the AT, his message of happiness, and how he ended up
being the official Greeter of Laguna Beach, California (which by
the way, is approximately one Appalachian Trail away from Springer
Mountain in Georgia).
