Episode #1 - Why Hike the Appalachian Trail?

Episode #1 - Why Hike the Appalachian Trail?

The whys and the wherefores

In this first episode, Bruce and Steve discuss the origins of Bruce's desire to hike the trail and why it has stayed on his bucket list for over 40 years. We learn a little of Bruce's back story, and Steve finds out that he has quite a rich history of sport throughout his life, having run marathons and hiked the Camino, in Spain.

We're hoping to make our show as interactive as possible, with Bruce open to questions–and advice!! You can email him at You can find out a whole lot more about Bruce and his adventure at his website, Please sign up for his newsletter when you visit the page.
