Everett mostly backpacked, but had some support from family & friends.  He also did some slackpacking.  His daily log is below.

He posted pics and videos to:

Got some news coverage:

"I started at the northern end of the Akron Section and headed south toward Marietta. I did the 145mi "Wilderness Loop" clockwise, then got shuttled from the Whipple/Stockport junction back to the Belle Valley/Road Fork junction to complete the loop in a southerly direction. I continued clockwise towards Cincinnati then got shuttled from the Williamsburg/Loveland junction in Milford to the trail's southern terminus in Eden Park overlooking the Ohio River to start the Loveland Section heading north. Once back in Cleveland I finished the 250mi "Little Loop" clockwise to finish at the Massilon/Akron junction." - Everett Brandt
