Mighty Blue on the Appalachian Trail:

The Ultimate Mid-Life Crisis

Dec 7, 2023

We’ve got our favorite doctor on the show today. Lynne Savino shares with us her recent backpacking medical adventure that she was a part of, taking in the Virginia Triple Crown with a group of fellow doctors.

Lynne’s excitement at merely standing on MacAfee Knob–with virtually zero view–provides us with a touching reminder of how important these special moments are.

You can check out the Summer Adventure Camp she refers to in our conversation at , which she also sent me a link to the rescue gear used in their exercise. All interesting stuff and the fact that they took in the Virgina Triple Crown over the course of the exercise is an added bonus.

Jessica has been braving the rocks of PA and is now largely through the worst of them as she approaches Port Clinton. She is now under 200 miles from her personal Katahdin in Harpers Ferry, which she aims to reach before Christmas. It’s been epic.

I often ask listeners for ideas on who to interview, and I’m sure several of you say, “I could do that. I’ve got an awesome story to tell.” You’re the person we need to hear from. If you’d like to be interviewed on the podcast, just register as a guest on the link below, and I’ll be in touch.
