The Old Dominion Appalachian Trail Club (ODATC) is an organization of individuals and trail-related organizations who meet to recreate in the outdoors in various ways as well as act as stewards of a portion of the Appalachian Trail and the public lands it runs through. Our recreational endeavors focus on hiking in Virginia but includes biking, paddling and touring as well. While the majority of our events occur in Virginia our only true limits are what members wish to limit themselves to.
THE ODATC EXPERIENCE - CURRENT ISSUES AND ANNOUNCEMENTS
Farewell to Bob Proudman, Longtime ATC Contributor
It is with deep sadness that we announce Bob Proudman has passed away. Bob worked at the ATC for over 30 years and served as Director of Conservation Operations, contributing greatly to the protection of the#AppalachianTrail and serving as an inspiration for us all. Bob’s manual “Appalachian Trail Design, Construction and Maintenance” is still used as a principal guide by trail crews around the world, and he championed the volunteer force that is the backbone of our Trail protection efforts. Our condolences go out to his friends and family. He will be missed.
