Mighty Blue on the Appalachian Trail:

The Ultimate Mid-Life Crisis

Jan 16, 2020

Another great show today, with a guy who is clearly in love with hiking and particularly the Appalachian Trail. Craig "Hawk" Mains has been this way before but, with his THIRD thru-hike, he was going for something really special. Listen to how it all unfolded, with not only his epic hike but also several personal events that deeply affected him.

Craig has a YouTube channel that you can visit to learn more about his adventures, past, present, and future. Go to and catch up with him.

Tracey "Zoom Zoom" Davis-Witmyer reached out to me and I immediately asked her on the show. Tracey is one of that special breed; a trail maintainer. Even more importantly, she represents a younger generation than my own that the trail so sorely needs if our trails are to be sustained in the future. You can see more of Tracey's adventures on her YouTube site at this link.

You can also follow her on Facebook at

Finally, Paul Stutzman finally understands why he is hiking the trail. The revelation is stunning.
