This week we welcome Jennifer Mabus to the show! Jennifer is a backpacker out of Washington and is preparing to take on the epic challenge of hiking the 2,650 mile Pacific Crest Trail. She also writes a fantastic blog at www.thewhimsicalwoman.com.
I was so excited to hear her story and preparation. I’m a nerd about all things thru-hiking (although I’ve never thru-hiked myself). The stories, adventures, and life-changing experiences people have after one of these huge quests always keep me on the edge of my seat.
In this episode we talk about Jennifer’s journey; how did she start backpacking, what is driving her to chase such a lofty goal, what obstacles is she expecting and how is she preparing herself physically, mentally, and emotionally for half a year in the woods?
I hope you guys enjoy the episode! If you haven’t delved much into the world of long distance backpacking, I would highly suggest checking out some documentaries or books just to give you some perspective on what these adventures really consist of. It will make you that much more excited for Jennifer and the adventures she’s about to embark on.
