Everybody thinks about just getting away.
Maybe you want to sail the Caribbean, maybe you want to backpack through Europe, or maybe you want to hike the Appalachian Trail.
Well, William Stewart might be able to give you a few pointers.
Stewart, a 20-year-old native of Shelby County, returned last week from a 104-day hike that took him from Katahdin, Maine, to Springer Mountain, Ga., the full length of the Appalachian Trail.
"I just wanted to step out of the fast-paced world," Stewart said. "I just wanted to get out and see what it's all about."
