2020 is quite the year.

That might be the biggest understatement ever. But I've found an opportunity to escape it all AND get paid to do so. One brewery is offering to pay one lucky person $20,000 to hike the Appalachian Trail and drink beer.


The Devil's Backbone Brewing Co., based in Lexington, said it is accepting applications from people to "love hiking and beer" to take on the unique job. According to UPI -

The winning applicant will be granted the "Chief Hiking Officer" title and be flown out to trail head in 2021 for a 2,200 mile hike.

The hiker, who would tackle the trail between May and September 2021, would be outfitted with equipment by the brewery, as well as being treated to "some big ol' beer parties along the way."

The company said the best applications will be selected for interviews and an assignment to complete for the next round of eliminations.

Like I said before, I wouldn't mind getting paid to get out in nature and drink some beer right now. Oh and get paid $20K.
You can apply here.
