Chosen from a pool of more than 1,000 applicants, CHO has already been on the road for six weeks, hiking the hundreds of miles of trails along the East Coast, although time is running out – the position only lasts six months.

“The big thing that appealed to me was to spend more time at my own roots. I always wanted to travel the [Appalachian Trail] and I thought why not do it in 2021, this year would be the perfect year to do it”, Kristen Musselman, originally from Virginia told the Nelson County Times.

Devils Backbone Brewing Company, named after a region in the Alps where the founders first tried craft beer, is sponsoring his trip, which Musselman posts through the company’s social media. Through its Heartland initiative, the company invests in the environment through donations, volunteer work and sustainable initiatives, including championing the great outdoors.

“We really wanted to try to export that experience that we had watching people go on this journey and transform and be able to make it more accessible to more people and share that journey with a wider audience, said Hayes Humphries, COO of Devils Backbone, told the Daily Progress.

Along the way, Musselman shares tips, tricks, and valuable lessons about safe and responsible outdoor living.

“Some of my overall goals are how do we get more people outdoors to access the benefits of the outdoors and how can we talk about how spending time outdoors really benefits our own mental health and to our well-being,” she told the Daily Progress.
