"The empowerment to help someone else"

Jeff Brownscheidle (aka Mountain Man) hikes A LOT -- he's completed the Appalachian Trail, the Continental Divide Trail, the Pacific Crest Trail, and many others.  He also recently completed a Hybrid WFR course with FFI (and rocked it!).  Here's a link to the article that he published after the course.  Thanks, Jeff!
