Mighty Blue on the Appalachian Trail:

The Ultimate Mid-Life Crisis

Jun 8, 2017

  Kyle Bock has had some dark days, not least because he lived in Alaska for over fifteen years with no running water and, for the past few years, with no electricity. Kyle has taken on the challenge of an AT thru-hike with an almost professional approach, yet enjoyed his journey as he contemplates what the trail means to him. He is expressing himself with his beautiful photographs, altering them to reflect how he felt at the time.   The only contact information that he shared was his Instagram account, which is under the name of Bockasaurus. Pay a visit to Kyle's page; you'll be glad that you did. The three photos here are examples of the thought he has put into his pictures.               Kyle hopes to complete the trail in about four months; I'm really looking forward to catching up with him on his return.   Attie has reassessed her situation and is now pushing forward with her hike. She continues to enjoy her adventures but has been a great example of somebody who may have expected much of what she has experienced but didn't necessarily count on the yearning to be at home. I faced similar times when I was away; I'm just glad that she has made this reassessment and pushed forward.   As always, thanks to everybody who supports the show. I hope that you listen to my new podcast, Mighty Blue on the John Muir Trail when it comes out soon. Watch this space.
