Mighty Blue on the Appalachian Trail:

The Ultimate Mid-Life Crisis

Jun 24, 2021

This week on the show, we go back to the 'normal" format, with me, Mighty Blue, at the microphone. Ryan is passing back the show having successfully steered it for the past three months. I am eternally grateful for the effort Ryan put into the show and hope to have him back behind the mic from time to time.

Today's guest is Steve Nota, a Bostonian relocated to Australia. Steve shares his story about hiking as a youngster, then moving to Australia and hiking "tracks" out there. He will attempt to realize a burning ambition to hike the Appalachian Trail in 2022.

As you can see from the pictures, the Aussie "tracks" provide the hiker with some glorious views.

Katie Westling has settled more into her hike and crossed two state borders this past week. Her progress is measured, but our listeners continue to support her in her journey, with two "Angels" helping her through Pennsylvania.

Now that I'm back in my recording seat, please let me know of any guests you'd like me to speak with by emailing me at
