Mighty Blue on the Appalachian Trail:

The Ultimate Mid-Life Crisis

Jul 7, 2022

Amber and Joshua Niven were next to me in the Author's Tent at Trail Days, and I asked them to come on the show when I heard their great stories of having separately hiked the AT before meeting one another at Trail Days.

They have experienced the trail differently, so their book is a product and amalgamation of those experiences. It is a true coffee-table book that you can pick up and open anywhere; there'll always be something of interest to read, or to see.

If you'd like to learn more about them and their book, you can find them on these sites.

Also, if you're in the vicinity of Hot Springs on August 13, why not drop into Big Pillow Brewing to meet them at the official launch of their book?

One of the members of our Class of 22 still heading north, Sarah "Sunny" Landis, has reached Vermont and continues to have a blast. We caught up with her at Manchester Center on a zero day.

Katie Westling was on MacAfee Knob when I called her. Check out the photo she'll be looking at for the rest of her life. Epic!!

George Steffanos has really been putting himself through it and, just when he was on the verge of quitting, he found the best medicine.

If you'd like to find out more about "Then The Hail Came," check out George's website at You can also find George's book on Amazon at this link.
