Mighty Blue on the Appalachian Trail:

The Ultimate Mid-Life Crisis

May 27, 2021

While you listen to this, our guest today, Jamey Mossengren, is out on the Pacific Crest Trail with his buddies, The Minnesota Hikings. Jamey and I talk about his 2019 thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail and his remarkable mode of transport on the Colorado Trail, amongst others.

Despite our laughs, I was struck how Jamey and his mates were enjoying the trail and taking their time. This is probably why a bunch of younger guys didn't catch and pass this older guy in 2019!

He has some wonderful stories to tell and even tries out a new name for Trail Magic. Let me know what you think; it may catch on!

If you'd like to catch up with the Minnesota Hikings, check out their various social media sites below.




Also, if you'd like to know what it's like to be a real life unicorn, check out Jamey's personal sites.





Katie is easing her way back into fitness by doing short days on her way through Shenandoah National Park. The great news is that she's currently feeling no pain. Let's hope it continues.

In Larry Luxenburg's book, Walking the Appalachian Trail, Larry and his guests have reached Baxter State Park and Katahdin.
