Mighty Blue on the Appalachian Trail:

The Ultimate Mid-Life Crisis

Jan 7, 2021

We normally focus on the Appalachian Trail, but this week, we're moving across the country to share the hike of Mike Current on the Pacific Crest Trail. Mike's YouTube channel provides a thoughtful and entertaining take on hiking. He and Steve chat about the hike and his intense preparations prior to the hike.

Mike is particularly keen to make sure that the 2020 hikers' stories are told, believing that 2020 will become a lost year.

If you'd like to follow Mike, you can see him on Youtube at and follow him on Facebook here.

Kathryn Herndon-Powell shares her experience in our ATC segment as the first part of a mini-series, Know Before You Go: How To Plan for Hiking in 2021.

Somebody found our microphone on the website!! Julia Doherty–a fellow Brit–tells us that she's found the perfect solution for people who like to journal on the trail and don't want to bring a heavy book. Check them out at

Finally today, Larry Luxenburg's Walking the Appalachian Trail covers something of a rarity; hikers who repeat their AT thru-hike. Who on earth would ever do that??
