This fall, Nika “Early Bird” Meyers set the unsupported female record for hiking the Long Trail. The 2007 Woodstock Union High School graduate traversed the 272-mile footpath that runs from Williamstown, Mass., to North Troy, Vt., in six days, 11 hours and 40 minutes. (For comparison, the Green Mountain Club estimates that an average end-to-end hike takes 20 to 30 days.) With the aid of photos and videos, Meyers shares the lows — fear, discomfort and sleep deprivation — and highs of her journey in the talk “Rugged Happiness: Setting the Unsupported Female Record on the Long Trail.”
