After a break from the podcast, I'm refreshed and am diving back in with an interview with Greg Seymour and Jen Beck Seymour talking about their thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail.
Learn from a couple who successfully thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail and NEVER GOT A BLISTER! They share their wisdom and tips and tricks. Oh, and if you think they must be veteran backpackers, you're wrong. The longest camping trip they had done prior to hiking the AT was 3 nights!
My favorite quotes from the interview:
"75% of the people who finish a thru-hiked the AT each season have not spent more than three consecutive days outside"
"Fund the trail you want to hike, not the other way around. Not, hike the funds you have."
"We pick stuff other people would think is crazy and come up with a plan to make it successful..."
"We're average people. We're just doing this stuff because it's fun and an adventure."
"If you ever want to have your faith restored in humanity thru-hike the Appalachian Trail."
"Fund the trail you want to hike, not the other way around. Not, hike the funds you have." See what they mean by listening to this podcast episode of "Earthy".
