Trail Correspondents Episode #20 | Revelations

An extended period in the great outdoors is medicine for the soul.  Breaking free from our routines in a natural setting is a recipe for happiness, clarity, and a fresh perspective. Having done it myself multiple times, I believe this with an unwavering conviction.

That is the subject of today’s show.  Our hikers will share all of the revelations or a-ha moments they’ve experienced on trail.  They talk about what changes, little or big, they’d like to incorporate into their post-trail worlds, and how their hikes have facilitated this decision.

And, sadly, today’s episode features a pair of sign offs. This will serve as a reminder of how much good luck is required to complete a thru-hike.

In today’s show, we hear from Frozen, Katharine, Missy, Kenneth, Nancy, Zack, Jazmin, Angie, Karthikeya, Laura, Julie, Eric and Alison (our brother sister duo), Dosu, and Sara D.  Here it is.
