Mighty Blue on the Appalachian Trail:

The Ultimate Mid-Life Crisis

Mar 24, 2022

We have a wonderful story on the show today. J Robert Harris grew up in New York during the 1960s. His folks realized that the New York streets were no place for a young black man. JR was sent to the Catskills to join the Boy Scouts. The lessons he learned, and the things he saw gave him a new purpose in life to pursue knowledge and peace in the outdoors.

Following a caribou migration, or turning up at an Inuit settlement, JR's natural curiosity has led him to many of the paths less travelled and he shares his wisdom and experience with Steve.

His book, Way Out There: Adventures of a Wilderness Trekker, explores these themes. You can get it on Amazon.

You can also follow JR on Facebook at, on Instagram at or on his website at

We also caught up with Dom Tamarro, an unabashedly excited man who is soooo ready for his upcoming hike!!
