Chris Gallaway

 

Osprey is excited to partner with Chris Gallaway and Horizonline Pictures for a new Appalachian Trail documentary entitled “ The Long Start to the Journey.”  The story follows filmmaker Chris Gallaway on his personal attempt to hike the AT in one season and to learn what the trail is about along the way. Chris’ own words describe the journey the best:

“We’ve been hiking a long time now. Two months of life on the Trail has already shaped me in ways that I expected and ways I didn’t. I am most comfortable moving at a walking pace now–highways and traffic unsettle me. I’m a few pounds lighter, and my white chicken legs are strapped with more sinew and muscle than ever. I’d like to say that I’m a more patient, grounded person, but I’ll leave that for other people to comment on. It’s hard to believe that I’ve only made a quarter of the journey. There is so much time left and Trail to discover, and I feel the excitement of that thought flutter in my gut like happy butterflies.”

Osprey is proud to be involved with this documentary film project and we encourage you to follow along here as well as at http://theatmovie.com/
