Mighty Blue on the Appalachian Trail:

The Ultimate Mid-Life Crisis

Dec 24, 2020

It's a shorter show today, though I think the content is as compelling as ever. This week's guest is Trevor Hendry, or Bear. Trevor's 2020 thru-hike presented him (and his fellow hikers) with unusual problems that he had to encounter and deal with. However, as I've found with some of this class of 2020, his experience–while not the same as previous hiking years–was equally rich as any other.

He even found himself slowing deliberately towards the end as he was relishing his adventure.

There is no middle section of the show this week, but our ATC segment continues next week.

In Larry Luxenburg's "Walking the Appalachian Trail" we meet a new character and you'll hear that many of the concerns of today's hiker are reflected in these stories of 30 and 40 years ago.
