Mr Shoes & Kanalkanut, known off trail as Scott & Aidan Durkin, did some deep farther / son bonding during their 2017 thru hike of the AT. The perfect culmination of a multi-subject homeschooling project. Oh by the way, Aidan was 14 at the time! Logistical support provided by Moneypenny, aka Mom, back at home in England. During this episode everyone got to chime in with their perspective on the adventure.... and there's definitely some he said / he said / she said happening.
Slider, known off trail as Amy Hunsucker, traveled the Appalachian Trail in 2018 with the Northbound Horde... and a plastic trombone. In this episode she talks about thru hiking with the Horde and strategies they used to keep such a large group together. And why learning to "Embrace the Suck" is crucial!!!
This episode continues my conversation with Jen & Suds, known off trail as Jen Collins & Jake Russell. We dig into adventures with North American wildlife, big and small, while also hitting on some decisions that apparently still need to be made.
