Mighty Blue on the Appalachian Trail:

The Ultimate Mid-Life Crisis

Aug 19, 2021

Another stellar story for you all this week. Josh and Cassie Sutton started a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail back in the middle of January 2021. Apart from the early start, that wouldn't have been especially noteworthy–other than that they hiked with their four-year-old son, Harvey, or Little Man!

What happened over the next seven months is a story of determination, patience, games, and a little bit of arm-twisting to get permission for Harvey to climb Katahdin–which he did last Monday, August 9.

If you'd like to watch more of the Sutton story, you can follow their YouTube channel at and their Instagram page at

We catch up with Katie, having "abandoned" her for about a month. I'm delighted to be able to report that she's alive and thriving!!

I also start a new book this week, with Winton Porter's "Just Passin' Thru." I hope that you all enjoy it.
