Interview With A Thru-Hiker

Dennis 'Octopus' Plato, 

of The Bus Question blog 


Interview by Terry Craig- The Disabled Hiker


 rec: July 27, 2015, in Wind Gap, Pa.

I got to know Dennis Plato after watching one of his video equipment shakedowns on YouTube early this year. Dennis was already well into the planning stages to begin a complete hike of the Appalachian Trail, starting in Georgia and ending  on Mount Katahdin in Maine.

I had been looking for someone to follow on the Appalachian Trail in the hopes of meeting up with them here in Pennsylvania for an interview about their experiences. Dennis, who had not yet been given the trail name "Octopus" as of yet, seemed to be the perfect candidate.

Only a small percentage (est, 20% each year)  will actually finish the entire hike from Maine to Georgia. But I've got a funny feeling our friend Dennis 'Octopus' Plato will be among them.

I would like to take a moment to thank our friend Dennis Octopus Plato of The Bus Question blog
for stopping by to talk with us. 
We'll see you on the other side of Mount Katahdin.
Good luck my friend.
