How To Fail A Long Distance Thru-Hike

by Kelly Heikkila | at Minnebar 18 | 1:55 – 2:40 in Bde Maka Ska | View Schedule

Having attempted the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) in 2023, I'd love to discuss my experience including planning, tech, logistics, physical issues, psychological strain and anything else people want to talk about. If you're thinking of attempting a thru-hike, have done a thru-hike, or just want hear about losing toe nails, this session is for you!

I'm an Art History major turned developer, app architect, product manager, founder and CTO for tech companies since 2000.

Before transitioning careers into tech I worked in the film industry as a Location Manager during the Mighty Ducks, Fargo and Little Big League era, if you are old enough to remember those movies.

I love adventures big and small, especially in the outdoors.
