GREENVILLE — 12,000 miles. For some people, long-distance hiking becomes a serious lifestyle. Ron Dobra is one of those people.

Dobra, a longtime Greenville resident, has backpacked six major long-distance trails. On Wednesday, Jan. 31 join Dobra for “Living the Hike” as he describes, with photos, his experience completing the “Triple Crown” hiking the Appalachian, Pacific Crest, and Continental Divide trails and how and why he chooses to interact with the natural world on foot and with a backpack.

The presentation will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Greenville Town Office Community Room (7 Minden Street). Coffee and light refreshments will be provided, so plan to arrive a few minutes early. The audience will have a chance to ask Dobra questions following his presentation. This free event is open to the public and family friendly.

“Living the Hike” is hosted by Moosehead Trails (MT), a group of volunteers working to improve people-powered trails in the greater Moosehead Lake region. This will be the first in a series of presentations on hiking and the outdoors that MT plans to host, this winter. For more information, follow Moosehead Trails on Facebook.
