In this podcast, Steve talks about how he eased in to the sport with an initial trip to the Len Foote Hike Inn near Amicalola Falls State Park in North Georgia. From there, he explored the backcountry campsites along the Foothills Trail at Lake Jocassee, and eventually migrated to his first solo backpacking trip along the Kings Mountain Trail where he camped at a remote campsite (sans amenities) in South Carolina.
Steve proves that you’re never too old to pick up the sport of backpacking and that with the advances in lightweight gear in the market today, you too can be hiking and backpacking well in to your 80’s.
