Mighty Blue on the Appalachian Trail:

The Ultimate Mid-Life Crisis

Feb 23, 2023

Leah Harman, or Twig, is our guest today. She is a self-confessed nomad, concentrating in the past few years on backpacking her way through many trails, both in the US and abroad.

Despite the solitary nature of many of her hikes, Leah enjoys the trail community and Trail Angels in particular.

You can check out Leah’s many hikes in her excellent blog at

Mary Marks becomes the final member of our Mighty Blue Class of 2023, and we speak from Franklin, NC, where she is already on trail with her beautiful hiking companion, Wiley. Is Wiley a poser, or not!!??

Doctor Lynne talks to us about the prevalence of Lyme Disease, how to spot, and what to do about it. Remember, you can download her notes on any of the subjects she has shared in this short series by clicking on this link.
