On September 21, 2016 Jill M Aubin completed her journey of hiking the Appalachian Trail. A lot of hiking, camping and trying out gear went into the planning of the epic 6 month hike. Join Jill as she shares her love of the outdoors, the preparations of food and gear, and what it was like to get up every morning and hike an average of 15 miles a day. Along the way you will learn about the terrain, the animal and the people of the Appalachian Mountains. Jill will be sharing photographic images in a slide show while she relates what it takes to hike 2,189 miles.
Jill grew up on the Iron Range in rural Minnesota near the town of Mountain Iron. She graduated from the Suburban Hennepin Technical College with a degree in Commercial Photography. After closing a successful photography business, Jill went on to start teaching children at various businesses with her most recent job as the Education Coordinator at Minnesota Discovery Center. Jill gave up her position there to follow her dream of hiking the Appalachian Trail. Currently she is traveling locally to do inspirational speaking as well as teach photography classes.
