Sparks and Bushy Hartman

About Us

We are Mike (Sparks) and Bushy (Bushy) Hartman and we attempted to hike the Appalachian Trail in March of 2015, but quit only after one week.

We plan on giving it another go March, 9th, 2017! This time with lighter / leaner bodies and packs. We learned a lot on the first go around and hopefully we can turn those lessons learned into a successful thru hike; starting over from Springer Mountain.

We are retired (truly retired!) and getting older, so we figure that if we do not do it now, we will NEVER do it. My trail name is from mine and Bushy's Navy days, as a former Radiomen. The emblem for the Radioman was sparks. Bushy's trail name is a name that she received back in the day by friends because of her bushy hair plus, she cannot stand her given name...maybe given trail magic, she will reveal her real name. :-) Hiking the Appalachian Trail has always been on our "bucket lists" so here we are…again! Bushy is 61 and is a native of Florida/Maryland and I am 65 and am a native of California/Arizona. We both are very excited about getting back on the trail and after much research and trail journal reading, and lessons learned from our first attempt, we will be lightening our loads considerably.

Hope to see you on the trail!
