Returning to Katahdin: An Appalachian Trail Dream

Did you ever want to hike the Appalachian Trail? Come and listen to Bruce Matson and Steve Adams as Bruce prepares for his journey in 2018. They'll be continuing their conversation while Bruce is on the trail, all the way back to Katahdin.

Thanks so much to our title sponsor, Trailtopia. Great friends and great food is a winning combination.

With just a couple of weeks left on the trail, Bruce reassesses his difficulty rating after his New Hampshire and Maine experience. Recon has sustained an injury that forced him from the trail, leaving Bruce and Gbolt together as they contemplate the 100-Mile Wilderness.

They intend to use their time in the Wilderness to reflect upon what they have achieved so far.

We also got a great question from Patrick Sackrider about how impactful a thru-hike might have been on Bruce and me had we done it in our 20s as opposed to our 60s. It made us both think and speculate.

We hope that you take the opportunity to support our sponsor, Trailtopia, when you consider your next backpacking trip. Go to to check out their wide variety of meals.
