Charity Event with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy - Northwest DC

Hey Super Troopers!!!

This is a public service announcement on behalf of our friends at the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC). The folks at the ATC asked me to post this...and who am I to say no.  It's a go-on-your-own/up-to-you-what-you-make-of-it event. I doubt I'll be able to make it (due to my laziness), but I do believe it's a worthy cause. And we've hiked on the AT before (the photo is from the Sky Meadows State Park section of the AT!). 

The event will feature a rare opportunity to see the National Geographic film, America’s Wild Spaces: The Appalachian Trail, on the big screen. There will also be guest speakers, including hikers featured in the film and thru-hikers who have hiked the approximate 2,180 miles of the Trail from Georgia to Maine, raffles, giveaways and more. It's going to be a great event for the hiking community.

You can find more information about the event at

Each attendee will receive a year-long membership to the ATC, and anyone who uses the promo-code MEETUP will receive $5 off of their $30 ticket purchase. Every dollar raised will go directly towards maintaining and preserving the Appalachian Trail.

The event is located at the Avalon Theatre at 5612 Connecticut Ave. NW, Washington, DC.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
