This spring and summer, a Canadian family of five is hiking the Appalachian Trail, beginning in Maine and wending its way 2,000-plus miles south to Georgia. The father, Damien Tougas, plans to make the trip educational, homeschooling (or trailschooling, as the case may be) the children while developing a documentary “telling the story of our family thru-hike.” The entire endeavor was funded via Kickstarter back in February.
