Episode 64: Trail Days 2019

In Episode 64, Gary “Drone Boy” Vaughan returns to the show to discuss our May trip to Appalachian Trail Days in Damascus, Virginia. He recently chauffeured me to the annual event where I joined the Class of 1994 to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of our thru-hike.

In the podcast, we talk about what it’s like for a first timer at the event, what it’s like for a veteran of the festival (that hasn’t been for 20 years), and review our experiences at Tent City, in town, and on the parade route – where I walked with my class in the annual Trail Days parade.

Did I mention that we drove to Damascus in a 100% electric car ??? We’ll discuss that too, and talk briefly about our hike on the Appalachian Trail near Roan Mountain on the drive up.
