Mighty Blue on the Appalachian Trail:

The Ultimate Mid-Life Crisis

Jul 23, 2020

Brian Bell has shaped his life to enable him to spend as much time as he can in the outdoors. He looked for a local trail club to see if he could help, then volunteered more and more until he took responsibility as a trail overseer in Shenandoah National Park.

Continuing to give back to his local community, he has started a volunteer organization called Keep Virginia Cozy, putting together teams to spend some time in the outdoors and picking up litter that they find.


You can find out more about Brian and Keep Virginia Cozy with the links below.

Bounce has had a tough few days. After our chat, I found out a little more. This is the picture he posted on his Facebook page.

Grandma Gatewood has reached the end of the road and we hear of her final days. I don't know about you, but I will miss her!
