Episode #03 - Concerns, expectations, and fears.

What are your friends asking?


Ryan and Steve discuss the concerns, expectations, and fears that come along with attempting a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail. It is always interesting hearing the concerns of friends and family versus those of fellow hikers. Ryan shares his "Frequently Asked Questions" about the hike from those on both sides of the pond. Most importantly, what about fears? Steve asks what things are keeping Ryan awake at night with the fast-approaching start date at Springer Moutain. Finally, what role will this hike play in the lifelong journey of mental health?
