    We talk about my first year of freelancing, coming home from a thruhike with an empty bank account, fear of failure, rolling with the punches, debt and affording thruhiking, spending fasts, sacrifice, regrets, Instagram and thruhiking, preconceived notions of thruhiking, and having to make the decision not to complete your thruhike.

    This week’s episode features a badass thruhiker who was on the AT at the same time as me. She hiked the AT in two LASH segments and I’ve interviewed one person from each of her tramilies! I’m so glad we got to connect. She had so much advice to pass on that I’m definitely going to implement in my own life. Tessa hiked the Appalachian Trail, the Long Trail, and the PCT. We talk about how it felt to prepare for her first thruhike on the AT versus the PCT. She hiked straight through the Sierras in a high snow pack year so, of course, we geeked out about that. We also touched on hiking alone, the heartache of looking back at thruhike photos, making a thruhike work for your budget and schedule, and leaving her trail family at the end of a LASH.
