Mighty Blue on the Appalachian Trail:

The Ultimate Mid-Life Crisis

Nov 11, 2021

This week's guest is another of those intrepid female hikers who follow their passion and find out what the world has in store for them. Lisa Parker has had a varied career, from teaching to the New York fashion scene before finally finding her own passion.

She had started the Appalachian Trail in 2020 but got off the trail after more than 300 miles because of the Covid outbreak. She wanted the "full experience" and went back to Amicolola Falls to start from the beginning in 2021.

If you'd like to follow more of Lisa's adventures, check out her YouTube channel at

We also introduce you to our newest podcaster on the network. Courtney Miller chats with Steve about her new show, which is coming to the network. It is Hiking Unfiltered and episodes will be available every first and third Monday of the month. Check out Courtney's Facebook page at and make sure you check out her show when you're on our website,

Finally today, Winton Porter hosts a big, boozy party at Mountain Crossings. Things go pretty much as you might expect!!
