In this episode, Courtney talks with Gary "Green Giant" Sizer, author and Appalachian Trail thru hiker (2014). Gary turned his lifelong love of story-telling into a best-selling book, Where's the Next Shelter? They explore how the trail changes you physically and mentally, what life looks like after a long hike and how hiking can grow from a hobby to an obsession.

Gary Sizer was born in New Castle, Pa. Years of military service and software consulting fed his passion for travel, which he chronicles in his latest book, Home is Forward. After walking the Appalachian Trail in 2014, his before and after pictures went viral, and since then millions of people have seen him in his underpants. Now Gary hikes and lives in the hills near Asheville, N.C., where he occasionally records stories for NPR's The Moth.
