I'm hooked!

Even if I never get the chance to hike the AT I feel as though I have hiked it vicariously through Mighty Blue and his cast of characters. Love the show....I look forward to it every week! And don’t ever change the music!!!
Thanks MB!

Gearing up

Mighty Blue- you’re awesome. My friend and I are preparing for our first ever backpacking section hike of the AT, and I’ve in researching I discovered your podcast. I’ve been listening for about 8 weeks and I’m up to episode 81. Can’t wait to get all caught up. We head out in September 2019 to begin in Georgia. Love the show! Thank you for such amazing information and insight.
