About the author

As a thru-hiker of the 2,200 mile long Appalachian Trail, Troy completed something only a few thousand others have been able to accomplish. Not only that, but his journey helped raise close to $7,000 for cancer research as he partnered with MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. The trials of the trail gave Troy only a slight idea of the struggle his father was experiencing daily with his cancer treatments, but it also gave hope to his father to continue each day.

Troy's aim is to show people that wealth and status are not necessary in changing lives and making the world a better place. The only thing necessary is having a reason and a purpose for doing so. His mission is to show others that anything can be accomplished if we have the proper motivation for attempting change and the grit and tenacity to stick to our goals when challenges present themselves.

A longtime runner and adherent to stoicism, Troy credits his success on the Appalachian Trail and in life to the his friends, family, and the many people around him. Without others, our existence is certainly a sad one, and he hopes everyone finishes this book recognizing the importance of cultivating relationships throughout life.

Update #2 - Over 100 Pre-Orders in Less than 48 Hours Jan. 15, 2021

Everybody,
We are over 100 pre-orders in less than 2 days!! This progress is HUGE. Thank you for sharing my story and this campaign. And please keep it up! I can't describe how encouraging your support is for me. My journey along the Appalachian Trail and in writing this book are monumental to my life, and to see so many people interested in reading that story and supporting me blows me away. I can't thank you all enough. 

Here I am with three great friends from college who came to hike with me when I finally made it to Newfound Gap in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. My friends and relationships are the most important part of my hike and my life in general. I couldn't have done any of this without them!


Always,
