Long distance hiker, local author Jamrog to speak in Hope
HOPE — All are invited to the Hope Library on Thursday, October 18 at 4 p.m. to hear local author Tom Jamrog speak about the allure of the long distance trail.
In 2013, 61 year old Jamrog completed a 5 month long, 2500 mile backpacking journey over the Rocky Mountains through New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming and Montana. Jamrog is a Maine guide, directing wilderness related activities through Uncle Tom’s Guided Adventures. He is also the past president of the Maine Association of School Psychology. He earned the Triple Crown award from the American Long Distance Hiking Association in 2014 after completing hikes of the Appalachian, Pacific Crest and Continental Divide Trails.
Jamrog wrote the rough draft of his new book, “In the Path of Young Bulls” on his iPhone while hiking. The book features 50 color photographs and will be available for purchase at the presentation.
