The program will take viewers on a 1,800-mile journey along the International Appalachian Trail (IAT). As the host of the program, I will visit the most spectacular places found along the IAT in Northern Maine, New Brunswick, Quebec, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland & Labrador. This magnificent trail connects countries, provinces, mainlands and islands.
I will introduce audiences to locals, walkers and other knowledgeable individuals who will share their valuable insight about the local region and the many recreational opportunities available to visitors. The program will also highlight the unique heritage and customs of the places and people that can be found along this long-distance route. I will visit the nearby towns to experience the food, lodgings and culture and have a bit of fun while trekking along this visionary footpath. The program will capture the majestic scenery, cultural treasures and natural wonders that make the IAT so special.
In August 2011, I hiked some of the key sections of the IAT in Newfoundland to film the trail, icebergs and spectacular scenery. Some of this video footage will be used for the one-hour program. I will return to the IAT at the beginning of June 2012 where I will spend four months capturing the true essence of this long-distance trail. The project is scheduled to be completed by December 2012.
