Mighty Blue Goes Number Two on Stories From the Trail

Steve Adams, trail name Mighty Blue, is on the Appalachian Trail, again. Best known for his hiking memoirs Creaking Geezer, Hidden Flagon and Three Weddings and a Sabbatical, he also produces the popular hiking podcast The Ultimate Midlife Crisis.

Steve is currently producing his show from the trail and he took time from his busy schedule to call us from a listener’s house in Pennsylvania.

In this incredibly busy hour, we talk about:

  • What it’s like hiking the AT a second time
  • Seeing the same views from different perspectives
  • Max Patch
  • Why you shouldn’t let Facebook color your view of the hiking community
  • Beer and wine
  • What makes an integral hike?
  • Standing Bear Farm
  • Podcasting
  • Writing in American English
  • The John Muir Trail
  • Elevation sickness
  • Camino de Santiago
  • Poop
  • And so much more!
