IamA (Multiple FKT Holding Long Distance Hiker Attempting to Hike +7,950 Miles This Summer To Be The First Woman To Bag A Calendar Year Triple Crown) AMA!
**My short bio:** We are Point6, merino wool sock company based in CO, and we hosted an AMA session featuring our ambassador Heather Anderson on May 6 and will host another Aug. 12! Heather Anderson is a long distance hiker attempting to trek over 7,950 miles to be the first woman to ever achieve a Calendar Year Triple Crown (Hiking the Appalachian Trail, Continental Divide Trail and Pacific Crest Trail in a single year). Anderson just finished the 1st leg of the Appalachian Trail and she stopped in to answer all your questions before she headed back to the trails! She will stop in again after she completes her next trail! We will update This Page with details as it draws near. There are also links to Anish's blog and social accounts)
**NOTE: Keep posting and up-voting your questions! We will keep them for our next AMA with Heather Anish Anderson, tentatively set for Aug. 12! (pending trail progress!)
Heather Anderson is a holder of self-supported fastest known times (FKTs) on three National Scenic Trails and knows how to quickly travel the trails. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the national trails system and the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, and Anderson intends to honor the anniversary with her calendar year triple crown achievement. What better year than this to hike three of the major National Scenic Trails provided for in the national trail system act?
