Episode 68: Teenage Thru-Hiker

In Episode 68, “IronWill” Callahan joins the show to tell us what it’s like being a teenage thru-hiker on the Appalachian Trail.  In February of this year, Will left Springer Mountain at the age of 17 and hiked northbound to Woods Hole in Virginia where he discovered he had a fractured tibia.  After taking a break to heal, he returned to the trail to finish his hike – completing the Vermont to Virginia section southbound.

In the podcast, Will talks about what it’s like being one of the youngest thru-hikers on the trail.  He also describes the southbound experience and tells us about hiking solo after the thru-hiker masses cleared out.
