Mighty Blue on the Appalachian Trail:

The Ultimate Mid-Life Crisis

May 12, 2022

Our guest today is from the AT Class of 2017. His name is Chris Veasey, and we share an open chat about his experiences on the trail. He flip-flopped, heading north from Harpers Ferry to Katahdin, then south to Springer. His northern section was spent with a tramily, while he was largely solo in the south. We discuss the differences between both sections.

Chris has written a book about his adventures and has put up a Kickstarter for those who would like to support his efforts to publish his book. You can support that here.

He can also be found on social media at and

We catch up with some of the surviving members of our Mighty Blue Class of 2022, with Sarah Landis loving her time on the trail.

Kera, Ryan, and Brittaney–while definitely loving the trail–have experienced both the highs and lows of trail life.

Finally, I'm reading the first part of George Steffanos's book, "Then The Hail Came." If you'd like to find out more about "Then The Hail Came," check out George's website at You can also find George's book on Amazon at this link.
