Episode 71: Vagabond Jack Challenges the Appalachian Trail

On this episode we interview Jack Masters (Vagabond Jack) who attempted an Appalachian Trail thru-hike in 2018.  How he overcame adversity and what was his secret weapon for all those climbs up the Appalachian Mountains. AND, how did he get his trail name? Jack shares his thoughts on trusting the trail and discovering that some of his best adventures, were the people and friends  he met along the way.
