Mighty Blue on the Appalachian Trail:

The Ultimate Mid-Life Crisis

Sep 29, 2022

Julieann Hartley is today's guest. She hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2015 and transformed her life. She articulates this so beautifully in our conversation, and you may be a little confused about why we laugh so much while discussing difficult topics. Yet her positivity is what pulled her through both the hike and her subsequent life.

Check her out at Instagram and TikTok, and even on Spotify at the links below.

We also hear how Dan Whitesides, or Trumpet, ended his AT hike with FrankE, his faithful companion.
