Speaker: Nimblewill Nomad, Author, "Ten Million Steps"
Best known by his trail name Nimblewill Nomad, M. J. Eberhart grew up in a small town in the Ozark Hills of Missouri, the son of a country doctor. He is a veteran of the Armed Forces and worked for many years as the senior practitioner in a busy three-doctor optometric practice in Florida. He credits much of his success to his wife, Cindy, with whom he has two sons, Jay and John.
He started hiking and backpacking in the early 1980's, and after years of being cooped up in examination rooms with no windows, he is now making up for lost time, spending many of his days in the great outdoors.
