The 2,185 MILE HIKE | David Kallin | TEDxYouth@CEHS

Have you ever tried and just get your kids to walk a few miles with you? Watch and learn as David Kallin, husband, father, and outdoor adventurer describes his family's extraordinary adventure trekking the 2,185-mile Appalachian trail. In his talk, David describes the challenges and tremendous rewards of watching his young children (ages 8 and 9) navigate the arduous five-month long hike from Georgia to Maine.

The Kallin Family are now among a small group of fewer than 20 families who have completed the trail start to finish in a single year. David Kallin is a husband and father of two who believes in the importance of outdoor adventure as a family activity. The Kallin family (with two young kids) has a long history of human-powered outdoor adventures, including multiday backpacking, biking, and cross country skiing trips.

A former oceanographer, David now practices law as an attorney at the Portland, Maine law firm Drummond Woodsum with a focus on natural resource, land conservation and municipal law. David speaks about his family's most recent adventure: a five month end-to-end hike of the Appalachian Trail from Springer Mountain in Georgia, to Mount Katahdin in Maine.
