Congrats to Ranger Vinnie Corsentino

My old platoon mate from A/3/75, Vinnie Corsentino, just finished walking the entire Appalachian Trail. Hard dude.

Very cool. Few do the whole thing I'm one continuous hike. And the ones that do all seem just one klick off, like their compass is set to 361 degrees...

Awesome, the Trail is not to be trifled with. The New Hampshire section alone is a killer and a couple of the miles in Maine have inclines that rival The Cog in Colorado Springs.

Great job!

Thru-hiking the AT is on my bucket list but time is catching up. It's great to see someone living into their dreams.

Nice! Alphabots setting the Standard. I'm assuming he remained tactical throughout the movement :)
