Oboz sponsored athlete Derick Lugo aka Mr. Fabulous is back at Mappy Hour for another talk about thru-hiking.

He will share a mesmerizing journey through past and future hikes, weaving together personal anecdotes with the allure of nature’s effect on him.

His exploration of the transformative impact of his Appalachian Trail, Continental Divide Trail, and Long Trail thru-hike experiences, and the art of translating them into compelling narratives is both inspiring and thought-provoking.

Derick hopes to not only share his own story but also encourage all of us to embark on our own outdoor escapades.

We'll be randomly picking one person to get a ticket to our sold out hike to Mohonk on June 8th!

We'll also be giving away Oboz footwear and 2 signed copies of Derick's book The Unlikely Thru-Hiker

Stop by the store early to chat with the folks from Oboz! Get fitted correctly for boots, talk about design and construction, and share hiking experiences with the folks from Bozeman. The team will be on hand in Paragon Sports’ Outdoor Footwear section starting at 5:00 and will be on hand through Derick Lugo’s amazing presentation.

P.S. Watch a clip of Derick's talk about going from NYC to the Appalachian Trail here.
