Mighty Blue on the Appalachian Trail:

The Ultimate Mid-Life Crisis

Jun 23, 2022

Father and daughter hiking partners, Kayla and Ken Bold, came to the Appalachian Trail with Ken originally intending to hike just a section in support of his daughter. As often happens, those plans changed, and they headed north together as a team.

Each learned something about the other, with their familial bond strengthened along the way.

Our two catch-ups this week are with Trumpet and his dog FrankE, as well as with Katie Westling, who is filling in the miles she missed in her thru-hike attempt last year.

I mentioned our other shows on the podcast today, so here are the links you'll need to find each of them going forward.
