Mighty Blue on the Appalachian Trail:

The Ultimate Mid-Life Crisis

Jul 27, 2017

This week's guest is another from the Class of 2014; Tim McGann, or Tadhg. He shares his story with us and provides the perfect example of how the trail always provides. Indeed, on his first date with Erica, now his wife, she enthusiastically embraced the idea of his hike and supported him along the way, ultimately summiting Katahdin with Tim at the conclusion of his journey.         Tim can be found on Facebook and would love to hear from any old friends he may have met along the way.       I was able to catch up with Sarah Williams (Tough Girl) from a previous episode. Sarah is attempting to complete the AT in 100 days and, at Day 50, it seemed like a good time to catch up mark her progress. You can follow Sarah's journey on her YouTube channel, though the posts are currently behind this 50-day mark.   I had the chance to speak with not only Attie this week but also Joan, her mom. Sadly, I won't be here when Attie summits Katahdin, but I will be doing an episode in September when I return from the John Muir Trail that will cover Attie's reflections of the trail and of course her conclusion at Katahdin. Don't forget. If you can't wait to find out about Attie's progress, she'll be publishing her blog right to the end.   Thanks so much for supporting the show so far. If you'd like to support my John Muir Trail hike with the "Last 10,000 Feet Challenge" for a local child abuse prevention agency, Family Partnership Center, please either email your pledge or contact Bridget Harry at the center at I appreciate everybody who has done so already.
