Mighty Blue on the Appalachian Trail:

The Ultimate Mid-Life Crisis

May 26, 2022

Natisha Webb wrote to me recently about my West Highland Way trip, telling me she'd already booked to go on the same hike next year. We corresponded, and it turns out that she also thru-hiked the AT in 2021, having been "Covided" off in 2020.

Naturally, I wanted her to tell her story, and she agreed to come on the show. As you'll hear, she is a pragmatic woman, making sensible decisions when decisions are required.

If you'd like to learn more about Natisha and her hiking, and van, life, check out her Instagram at Additionally, you can check out at her YouTube page at

We caught up with two of our Class of 2022 this week, neither of whom is actually on the trail right now!

Katie Westling, who we followed in 2021, is heading back to the Appalachian Trail in early June to complete the last 500 or so miles of her hike. She tells us her plans.
