CNI Challenge #7--Do a Long Distance Hike

Hiking the Appalachian Trail or the Pacific Crest Trail is something that few people will complete but it is well worth the challenge. Completing a long distance hike of thousands of miles and months of walking will give you the survival skills that few in this world posses. You will realize what you really need to survive (not much as it turns out...just what you can carry on your back), you will leave behind the 9-5 life and get into the flow of nature (up at dawn, asleep at dusk), you will learn skills ranging from how to arrange food drops to what to do if a bear invades your camp to how to take care of your own medical needs to orienteering. You will also truly learn how to survive in the wilderness--something many people claim they will do WTSHTF but honestly have no clue how to do it.
