Hi there. Just a big shoutout to this funny movie "A Walk in the Woods" based on the notorious novel by Bill Bryson. Something our Corsica trails' lovers will surely enjoy!

The trailer is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nx1AMfC-F2g

Hello Michele,
I do recall reading the account of Bill Bryson's trip along the Appalachian trail. As usual with BB lots of researched stories of the trail which held the interest but the walking, it seemed to be mostly in tree covered terrain, didn't appear to be all that interesting.....not at all like the great variety that you find along the GR20. :-) I have not yet looked at the film version.

Yes, Roger, the AT is also knows as the "green tunnel" so you are correct. The film itself doesn't offer too many views (the GR20 landscapes on the contrary are unbeatable) and it's not a hikers' movie per se. Also the book is certainly way better. Nick Nolte is good in portraying Katz, but Rober Redford is definitely out of character.
