Lightning strikes the ground nearby and the loud crack of thunder follows instantaneously. Looking up into the dark angry sky I shout through the rain, "You want to kill me I'm right here!" -from Hiking the Appalachian Trail
That is Chris Miller, also known as Cleanshave, the travel author best known for the story of his 2011 Appalachian Trail thru hike covered in his book Hiking the Appalachian Trail.
Chris "Cleanshave" Miller has also bicycle toured the East Coast Greenway to raise money for Meals on Wheels, jumped off the Stratosphere Hotel in Las Vegas, taken the Polar Bear Plunge in Newport, RI, hiked Vermont's Long Trail from end to end and more recently cycled Adventure Cycling's Southern Tier on a fixed gear bicycle.
If you like low budget travel and adventure then Chris "Cleanshave" Miller is an author to consider.
"This is NOT Bill Bryson's Appalachian Trail book! Chris gives the reader a look into the darker side of hiking a long distance hike...the mental hike. He does not attempt to make this a primer on how to hike the A.T. I was not bored to tears with daily accounting of mileage and elevations attained. His side stories are both interesting and relevant to his state of mind at the time he is telling them. A different, and entertaining look at his thru hike of the Appalachian Trail, probably best enjoyed by the seasoned hiker." - Rick L. Hatcher "Bearfoot"
