Mighty Blue on the Appalachian Trail:

The Ultimate Mid-Life Crisis

Feb 8, 2024

Roxanne Lashley took on the AT last year and took her time. She had planned to go straight north to south, yet reaching Harpers Ferry past the Independence Day holiday, she knew she needed to flip north, then head back south.

Roxanne finished back at Harpers Ferry and shares her story with us.

In our conversation, Roxanne mentioned a couple of MeetUps, so, if you’re a lone who’d like to hike with others, check out these MeetUps

Remember, there are MeetUps all over the country, so check out others in your area.

Also today, Amanda Aguillard shares her story of hiking the Hadrian’s Wall Path in Scotland last year.

You can read more about the Path at Hadrian's Wall Path: British Walking Guide: Two-way: Bowness-Newcastle-Bowness - 64 Large-Scale Walking Maps (1:20,000) & Guides to 30 Towns & ... Stay, Places to Eat (British Walking Guides)

Also, she has shared links for the places she stayed at.

Don’t forget. Our entire series of videos from our Woods Hole Weekend in 2022 is now FREE and available at my YouTube page at Woods Hole Weekend - Trailer. There, you’ll find all sorts of tips and tricks that our guests took away from the weekend that helped them with their own hikes this year. Check it out.

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. Come on the show!
