Episode #7 – Steve Walker (Big Bird)

Steve Walker set out to hike the A.T. earlier this year with the intention of reaching Maine by October. On the way, he shared his stories and his thoughts regarding the trail, in a regular series of videos uploaded to YouTube. He attracted over 1500 subscribers, and his gentle, measured delivery was compelling.

For me, Steve’s finest moment was his unexpected bear encounter. Here is the link https://youtu.be/ig_79TOKJjI It cracked me up. The bear comes onto the scene at about three minutes. Enjoy.

Steve can be contacted at mh60pilot@cox.net. He’d be happy to share advice and speak with hikers he met and one’s he may have missed.

This week, I introduced a new little segment, called “If I did it again.” These are things I may have changed were I to hike the AT again. If any listeners have their own improvements to this magical hike, please let me know. You can contact me at steve@mightyblueontheat.com and don’t forget to get the free ebook on my writing site, at steveadams.info. If you enjoy that, I hope you then move on to the two books of my hike.

See you all next week.
