About the Author
Just before the new millennium, artist Jared Manninen went on a 2,160 mile hike through dense forests and over rugged mountains. He
carried only what he could fit inside of his backpack. MEGA '99 is the story
about that experience. It is the story of an Appalachian Trail thru-hiker.
Jared began his journey at the Appalachian Trail's northern
terminus (Mount Katahdin, ME) on July 1st and traveled south to the southern
terminus (Springer Mountain, GA) on December 15th, 1999.
MEGA '99 is 172 pages and contains over 150 pen
illustrations. The print (PDF) book is laid out like an artist's travel journal and
chronicles Jared's 167-day journey along the Appalachian Trail. Order this version of the book (PDF) if you want the closest experience to a print copy. For more information
