Episode 35: Prepping for the Appalachian Trail

On this episode we share our experience with how we inspire and motivate potential Thru-Hikers  prepping for the Appalachian Trail. We partnered with Mountain Crossings Outfitters and are offering 4 AT Prep Classes taught right on the Appalachian Trail.

A few things we talk about in this episode:

  • Expectations of the Trail – Fantasy VS Reality:  Are your expectations real? How much does Social Media play into the fantasy of the trail? It’s not what your seeing on YouTube, it’s what your NOT seeing.
  • Solo VS Social – We read a letter from one of our listeners from Sydney Australia that expresses concerns with the crowds and culture of the AT
  • Overcoming rough days on the AT – It’s real out there folks
  • Gear Talk- When to stop looking for the best gear, and get the right gear.
