154 When Do You Quit?

On this episode we share a recent backpacking trip where one question was asked over and over, “should we quit and go back”? Our special guest tells her story about a trail that lies deep within a southeast wilderness where severe floods, fires, blow down, and nonexistent trail maintenance has all but made a trail slowly disappear. You don’t want to miss this story. How key decisions and experience changed everything.
