Sterling Coleman’s 2012 Eastern Continental Trail Journal

Customer journals about his through hike.

“Well after a very short initial research period I’ve committed to doing the Eastern Continental Trail. Let me break that trail name down for those that haven’t read the much better written and more informative journals (or online encyclopedia entries) concerning this trail. The trail is ‘Eastern’, as in occurring in the Eastern portion of the United States, ‘Continental’ as in located on a continent as opposed to the ocean, and ‘Trail’ as in a path, or in this case a loose confederation of latitudinal and longitudinal coordinate points which have agreed to be linked in linear fashion, but strongly oppose being bound by the traditional ‘trail’ notions of not being within spitting distance of a United States Highway or above permanent standing water.”
