Jennifer Pharr Davis is a long-distance hiker, speaker, and author who's hiked over 14,000 miles on 6 continents. In 2011, she set the Appalachian Trail record by walking the 2200 miles from Georgia to Maine in only 46 days, 11 hours and 20 minutes - a feat that takes most people 5-6 months!
So what does this, as Rachel calls her, "complete badass" want for her last meal? And what does she and her fellow nature enthusiasts eat while conquering the outdoors?
Rachel also consults rock climber and James Beard Award winning chef Maria Hines, and "Dirty Gourmet" author Emily Nielson about how to step up your outdoor food game, whether it's hiking, backpacking, or car camping.
Check out Jennifer's book "The Pursuit of Endurance" and all of her other projects - including Blue Ridge Hiking Company in Ashville, NC, at jenniferpharrdavis.com.
If you're in Seattle, visit Maria Hines' certified organic restaurants Agradolce and Tilth, which the New York Times named one of the top 10 best restaurants in America.
