Girl Camper #15: Hiking the Appalachian Trail

On this weeks episode I had the pleasure of interviewing Laurrie Pottiger and Hope Midock from the Appalachian Trail Conservancy office in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia on all things AT. How the trail is maintained and who does all that work along with the AT lingo. What’s a SOBO and a NOBO and what is trail magic? This 2100 mile National Scenic Trail is a national treasure and if you are anywhere on the Eastern seaboard, part of it is right in your backyard. I also chatted about the difference between “ST”, ¬†Special Trailer tires, and “LT”, ¬†Light Truck, tires and the debate about whether “ST” tires are absolutely necessary on your travel trailer. In the Girl Camper News Roundup there is news about my GoRVing blog. It’s a year round thing now!! You will get to read the profiles of all the women who are Girl Campers year round. Whether you’re a martini and tutus Girl Camper or a boondocking, hiking, catch your own supper, Girl Camper you will enjoy reading about how these ladies made it happen.
