November Monthly Meet - "The Climb to Katahdin" documentary at Vandy

NOTICE OF MEETING CHANGE to AT documentary at Vanderbilt.

Join us with the movie's creator for a screening of the new documentary, "The Climb to Katahdin."  Devoted couple from Louisiana, Lindsay and Coltin, and their Catahoula dog, "Chaser," hit America's oldest long footpath, the Appalachian Trail, for a six month adventure in the mountains.

The "AT," as it's called, stretches from Georgia to Maine and spans almost 2,200 miles. It is many adventurers' dream to complete the trek in one long journey. But there's much more to the AT than the couple expected. The community, the trials and tribulations, the pain, and the rain are all things that are brought to light and experienced first hand.

Featuring a unique dogs-eye-view and an incredibly intimate closeness to the couple and the Trail unlike any adventure film, watch as they traverse their way to Maine and fully submerge themselves into the trail culture.

Vanderbilt's Stevenson Center Lecture Hall is located in Building 4 of the Stevenson Center for the Natural Sciences (west of 21st Avenue and just north of the Medical Center North building). You can find it on the campus map at: (next to "Select a Building" choose "SC Lecture")  Room 4309

Public parking is available across 21st Avenue at the Wesley Place Garage (21st Ave & Scarritt Place).

DINNER beforehand for all who want to join us at The Mellow Mushroom at 5:45 or so. [masked]st Ave S, Nashville, TN 37203

Sorry for the late notice of change, but thanks to those who brought this opportunity to our attention.  We'll postpone the "cold weather" topic to January.

If you miss the Monday night showing, you can catch it Tuesday night at the Nature Center at Shelby Bottoms.

    I'm excited for this and getting a chance to meet some Nashville hikers. I hiked 2012 and met Coltin and some of the cast of hikers that will be in it. I'm bringing another 2012er , and meeting up with another that just finished this year.

    Want to attend but I live in Lebanon and do not drive at night. Anyone in this area? Cairo Bend on the No side of Academy. Will meet some where close and convenient for another driver. Good shots of Maine. I remember those boulders & never got to the top on a late start day hike.

    word of warning-Mon 11th is Veterans day and we get free meals at local restaurants this day. I believe Ruby Tuesday is one so expect very very long lines
