Today's episode hits on some subjects that are often top of mind for thru-hikers and those curious about the undertaking. They are: food, how hikers' bodies change over the course of their hike, and gear. We learn more about the infamous hiker hunger, the "eat anything and everything and still lose weight diet", how their getup has evolved over the course of their hike, and what gear they've sent home. And lastly, we get an emotional goodbye from one of our correspondents- as the injuries have piled up and become too much to bear.
In today's show, we hear from:
- Kate Mueller aka Sassafras
- Jacob Beaver
- Lauren Peruffo aka Fainting Goat
- Gwen Nitya
- Miles Bisher aka "Miles To Go"
- Kate Emmons
- Lukas Isaacson
- Madeline Newel
- Sarah Mowery
- Rachael “Rabbit” DeLano
