The AT Experience is a documentary that follows Andrew "Reptar" Forestell on a 2,189.2 mile unsupported journey on the Appalachian Trail. Through interviews with fellow hikers, park rangers, trail maintainers, and many more. The AT Experience presents countless humanizing stories that will connect with audiences about comradery, overcoming obstacles, and the pursuit of adventure.
The AT Experience shows what hiking the Appalachian Trail is really like.
Only 25% of people that attempt what's known as a thru hike finish. Traveling across 14 states the gain and elevation of the Appalachian Trail is equivalent to climbing Mt.Everest 16 times. The AT Experience not only follows Andrew "Reptar" Forestell on his thru hike, but also shares graphic tales from other hikers. With no camera crew or production crew, viewers engage in the journey of a lifetime.
I have watched AT documentaries before and I must say this one held my interest the entire time. The filming, editing, and content were very very good and the questions were relevant. I will begin my own Thru Hike this spring and feel that the “AT Experience” definitely has helped me with visualization of what’s ahead. If it is possible, I feel more excited after viewing this documentary than I was before. Thank you for this fine work. 😊🙏💪✌️❤️
