'Authentic Katie' Hits the Trail

From the Austin, Texas area, 'Authentic Katie' is among the latest to hit the American Discovery Trail, walking east from the shores at Limantour Beach, CA, en route to Cape Henlopen, DE.

'Authentic Katie' Hits the Trail

Eastbound Journey began July 2nd

"Gotta admit that I am TOTALLY STOKED to be here in California and actually DOING the thing I have been TALKING about for months. *chuckle*," Katie said in one of her first notes from the trail this week.

After completing the first California segment, Katie took a Zero Day in a hotel for some cleaning, drying, reorganizing, and recovery — and busting out a series of NINE videos in one day!   *mic drop*

The videos are beneficial to those curious about a coast-to-coast walk. They cover topics from why she's doing it, what she's taking, what she is already changing out, and what her golf ball is used for?
