Mighty Blue on the Appalachian Trail:

The Ultimate Mid-Life Crisis

May 5, 2022

This week, we have the aptly named Tick Terminator, otherwise known as Brian Anderson. Brian has had a fascination with ticks–and how to terminate them–for over ten years. He has advised companies on how to deal with their outdoor employees, suggesting best practice to keep them from contracting Lyme and other diseases.

Today, he's offering advice to hikers and backpackers.
He does this in a fun, informative way, and I think we hit all the important points.

If you'd like to learn more, Brian's website is, while he can be found on Facebook at

We caught up with another two of our Mighty Blue Class of 22. This time, Dom Tammaro tells us of his rattle snake encounter AND his new trail name, while Joanne Birditt has eventually called a halt to her hike. Her smiling face on the show told me that it was the right decision.

Finally today, we have the Prologue of our new book. This was formerly a blog post, and I recently received permission to read it from George Steffanos, the writer. You can read more about George and his book at his website at, as well as buy his book from Amazon at this link.
