Are you familiar with Scott Rogers, the handicapped who accepted the challenge of hiking the 3,500-kilometer Appalachian National Scenic Trail in 2004? Although he is an above-the-knee amputee, he carved a name for himself as one of the most famous hikers who walked the path that passes through the states of Connecticut, Georgia, Maine, Maryland, New York and Pennsylvania.
How has he been able to survive going through the long and winding course despite the disability, you ask? Well, apart from his unrelenting determination to conquer a feat that others deem him too weak for, he learned the basics of backpacking and more.
