I am collecting trail journals from solo long distance hikers for a research study in the Princeton Social Neuroscience Lab. The study investigates the effects of different social conditions (from isolation to constant social connection) on the way people think about themselves and other people. The unique social experiences from solo hikers on a trail would be a valuable addition to this project. Of course there are a lot of blogs and posts available online, but those have often been written or edited after the fact. To gain better insights into the hiking experience, we would like to use copies of your original, unedited trail journals, notes, or even doodles. Message me or email me at jmildner [at] princeton [dot] edu if you have materials like this and would like to submit them! I am happy to answer any questions you may have.
