126 An Accomplished Thru-Hiker

On this Episode we catch up with Kari (aka Stitcher) at the completing of her Appalachian Trail Thru Hike. You may remember her from episode 75: An Aspiring Thru-Hiker, where she had only the dream of hiking the entire Appalachian Trail. Catching up with her again on Episodes 86: Backpacking Beginnings + Episode 112: The Journey begins with the first step – where she completes just her first 100 miles. 

For those of you that have followed her journey – Kari was a listener, taking in all the advise she could.  Now all this time later, having become friends and her taking our Backpacking Bootcamp Class – we were extremely honored in having her ask us to walk the last mile up to Springer Mountain with her – completing her Thru-hike once and for all.
