On May 17th, 2011, Jake Bramante took his first steps towards becoming the first person to hike all 734 miles of trail in Glacier National Park in one year. His presentation explores how he went from IT professional to budding entrepreneur and the inception and completion of the project.

Relive his journey through photos, HD videos and honest storytelling as he faced unseasonably high snowpack, injury, panoramic vistas, waterfalls, grizzly bears, birds, flowers, bull moose fighting and more. He concluded his journey on October 15th, 2011 and concludes his presentation with lessons he learned that has applications both practical and metaphoric for anyone who needs encouragement to start or find the strength to finish.
