Trail Correspondents Episode #23 | Readjusting After a Thru-Hike

When prepping for a thru-hike, aspiring trekkers spend countless hours stressing the transition to their new existence, one spent on the other side of walls. Within just a few days, the adjustment to living among the trees, on mountains, and under stars is all but complete. If only the transition back inside were so easy. And that’s the subject of today’s episode.  Our correspondents share how the adaption back to their former worlds has been, and what elements of their on-trail worlds they’ve brought with them—or at least hope to.
