A member of the Class of 2018, Art Donovan is fulfilling a dream that his mother had 50 years ago. With retirement came the desire to cross the AT off his bucket list, honoring both his mother and assisting her plight by raising funds for Alzheimer's Disease. He's even found the time to leave the trail to become an American Citizen.
Art has had quite the adventure so far, sharing time with one of his daughters on the trail and saving the last 30 miles of the Smokey Mountains for his other daughter after she has given birth later in the year. Below, Art is at MacAfee Knob.
You can follow Art's adventure on Facebook, where you'll also have the chance to donate to Alzheimer's should you so wish.
We also heard this week from Stacey Bucklin, or Stylez, in "If I Did It Again." Stylez leaves us with a memorable quote to consider.
