Kindled from his tour of duty in Vietnam, PTSD and fear of the woods haunted Tim for 47 years. This fear led him to thru-hike the entire Appalachian Trail, 2,178.3 miles.

THE GOOD HIKE is a story of peace, of war, of resilience, of goodness, of comaraderie and of endearment, as the author sought serenity in the woods and relief from the thoughts of horror.

The story takes you from the dense jungle battle zones of Hill 1338, 943 and others around Dak To in Vietnam to the beautiful places, towns and mountains of the great Appalachian Trail.

THE GOOD HIKE is also a love story. Experience the trials and tribulations of hiking with a partner 24/7, during times that were both challenging and blissful. Understand how a woman’s love
and support allowed the writer, a former combat veteran with PTSD, to feel calm, to relax, to enjoy.

THE GOOD HIKE will make you smile and laugh. And it will make you cry.
