What makes someone want to hike through the mountains on foot for four months?
“If it sounds crazy, it’s probably worth trying out,” Mostofi said.
Keon Mostofi and Charlie Goudreault , two former University of Minnesota Duluth students, are gearing up to make the nearly 2,200-mile trek across the Appalachian Trail, beginning this April.
Mostofi graduated from UMD in 2013 and Goudreault graduated last December. Both were inspired by previous outdoor-related jobs. Mostofi worked at the backpacking company, Granite Gear, where he spoke to hikers on a daily basis.
