Today's nepotism is brought to you by The Transcaucasian Trail and two industrious, adventurous former Peace Corp volunteers - Jeff Haack and Paul Stephens. Since their time in the Peace Corp they have been working in GPS mapping. Their plan is to establish a hiking trail from the Black Sea to the Caspian Sea.
Okay. I 'borrowed' this pic from the fundraising page. Please don't hate me. I am using it for good.|
In their words: "it (the trail) will increase sustainable tourism and bring economic activity to remote areas, it will raise the profile of the protected areas in the region and help ensure their continued conservation, and it will promote the connections between communities, ecosystems, and people, in a place where there is too much focus on the things that divide." And really, who doesn't want to help promote a more sustainable world in which division is only a math term.
Please take the time to check out their Facebook Page: The Transcaucasian Trail
And if you can help please check out their fundraising site: The Transcaucasian Trail
You can also find them on Twitter (@transcaucasiant) and Instagram (@transcaucasiantrail).
again, totally 'borrowed' from the page but seriously - beautiful!|
Stay Safe Guys and Keep up the Good Work!!
