Mighty Blue on the Appalachian Trail:

The Ultimate Mid-Life Crisis

Mar 29, 2018

Juan Durer has certainly earned his trail name. Once he had decided that living for now was far better than waiting for retirement, he has been a man on a mission. He hikes then moves on to the next hike. When Steve caught up with him, he was just two miles into another long-distance hike.

He is rational, indeed intentional, with the life he is leading and his laugh comes easily and is contagious. Since he finished the AT in 2016, he has hiked in Japan, Australia, Africa, and done "a couple" of Caminos in Spain.

You can contact Juan / Ben through Facebook at Juan Durer.

Kristen Brown explains the origin of her trail name before telling us about the White Oak Canyon/Cedar Run loop in Shenandoah National Park. You can find out more about this beautiful short hike at

As always, we thank our Sponsors, Trailtopia for their support and hope that you support them when considering your hiking food requirements.

All our four shows will be available at one platform, the new, which will be open on Sunday, April 1. I hope you drop by to listen to our other shows as well as this one.
