On the Mountain with Drew Glines '96
–by Mark A. Devey
Two weeks ago, Drew Glines, a graduate from the class of ’96, emailed me and asked if he could stop by for a brief respite. Drew was nearly two thousand miles into completing his eight-month hike of the Appalachian Trail, and he really wanted to see the school again and share his story with students and faculty. He started his adventure in Georgia and was just a few weeks away from completing his goal. We agreed to meet at the head of a trail in Cornwall, and when I arrived just after sunset, I found a face I recognized covered in a full beard. Upbeat, talkative, and filled with adventure stories, Drew shared a meal and details of his journey with me at the Wandering Moose Café.
