Warrior Expeditions is honored to have Daniel Payne and his dog Koda conduct a fundraiser hike along the Appalachian Trail in support of the 2017 Warrior Hike Program!
Daniel grew up in Oregon and spent his youth hiking and camping around the Pacific North West with his dog Kaya. In 2012, Daniel and Kaya moved to Alaska to work in the tourism and dog sledding industry where he met his wife Faith. After meeting Faith, Daniel and Kaya spent many summers hiking sections of the Appalachian Trail.
In May 2017, Daniel and his new dog Koda will finishing hiking the remaining 1,500 miles of the Appalachian Trail. Since Daniel’s grandfather was a WWII veteran and POW, Daniel wanted to use his hike as a way to give back to the veteran community. To follow their journey you can check out Daniel and Koda’s Instagram Page.
