In our speaking, as in our lives, we strive for balance between service and profit. We  provide free presentations to schools and non-profits along our route and tailor engagements for private groups and public audiences in the United States, funds from which go toward sustaining the hike.

‘Truths from the Trail’ is an encompassing theme for a  speaking series which ranges in focus from personal and community empowerment to environmental and ethical responsibility, based on the interest of your group.

In these talks our adventurers shares lessons gleaned from a lifetime of travel and years of long-distance hiking. We share the perspectives and lessons from the tail which inform a more centered and motivated life with others who perhaps cannot walk away from everything for five years at a stretch. These truths flow from previous experiences on the trail and Her Odyssey “America to America, a 20,000 mile trek.”
