Upon relocating his family back to the U.S. after years abroad, acclaimed humorist and weathered travel writer Bill Bryson decides it's time to explore his own country. His first order of business: trek the famed 2200-mile Appalachian Trail, much to his wife's dismay. She allows him to go only if he finds a travel companion. The only person Bill is able to convince is an old acquaintance, Stephen Katz, a wise-cracking recovering alcoholic and semi-reformed womanizer who is out of shape and arguably out of his mind. As the two men set off, they encounter hilarious characters, wild animals and life-threatening situations that will test the limits of their friendship - or end it. This is a hilarious and touching "coming of age" story about two men who finally discover that life is about the journey, not the destination.
