Episode #300 - Life Lessons From the Trail

Episode #300 - Life Lessons From the Trail

A 300th Episode Special


This week is our 300th episode, and we're doing something a little different, including minimal show notes!!

Every guest we've had in the past has shared their impressions, their stories, and the lessons they've learned. For this special show, I've put together nine short conversations with people who've been on the show or who I've hiked with. I was asking for just one lesson they've picked up from the trail. Their different takes were illuminating.

The conversations are with Tee Bird and Lighterknot, from my 2014 hike.

Pony, who joined me on the podcast and on my 2019 thru-hike.

Dixie, who I podcasted with as she took on the CDT in 2018, and who has become a friend of mine over the years.

Then, there are my podcast colleagues on the network; Anna, Jester, and Courtney.

Finally, we'll talk with my two hiking partners from 2019, Trigger and Cushy.

When they've had their say, I give you a few thoughts of my own. I hope you enjoy this very different show.
