Not just adults there are youngsters too who’re fond of hiking. If you are someone fond of hiking what wat the youngest age that you’ve hiked?
When it comes to young kids hiking one of the youngest is this guy Harvey Sutton. Harvey is a young lad of 5 years and he had completed a hike that’s over 14 states. With this, he becomes one of the youngest who completes the Appalachian Trail. Let’s see what’s the story of this “Little Man”.
Harvey is the son of Josh and Cassie Sutton who is fond of adventures and hiking. Along with their young lad, the family had begun their hike on the 2,100 miles long trek. It starts from Georgia and ends in Maine. The adventure-loving family where the mom and dad who had got a small retirement from work had taken 209 days to complete the hike.
To complete the hike they had followed a routine of waking at 5.30 am and walking for a day. For the ‘Little Man,” it had not been much difficult as from the age of 2 he had been hiking. Therefore he might have been used to long walks. When the weather it a bit hard they had to backtrack like in the Smoky Mountains where there are snowstorms.
As Caissie says to My Modernmet the weather had not been the most difficult part. What had been difficult is to keep up the mentality and positivity so that the little fellow doesn’t get demotivated and enjoys his adventure. While making plans and keeping up the mentality they had finished their hike. She had said that with the snow and rain keeping up that attitude had been a bit difficult.
Anyhow facing the things they had completed their hike on 9th August 2021. With a beautiful view, their celebration had been on top of Mount Katahdin. And just after this amazing adventure, the little one had started another big adventure in his life. Harvey had started Kindergarten and his mom had said that he’s into a different adventure than the past one. And the parents are also into rebuilding their businesses to get back as before.
