This week’s episode features Kevin Grooman aka “Spacejam”
I met Kevin through Dylan’s hiker chat (go listen to last week’s episode!). He’s triple crowned and gotten engaged along the way.
In this episode we’re talking about triple crowning; navigating home ownership, a career, and thruhiking all at once; forging a relationship formed in “real life” on the trail; Casa de Luna and Hiker Heaven closing; CDT vs PCT vs AT culture and intimidation level; the most epic trail magic ever; paper maps vs guthooks; bringing a camera on trail; finding your place after triple crowning; as well as the pandemic and the antiracism movement in the US in 2020.
Thanks to Chelsea Hall and Monica Aguilar, our Patron donors this week. And shoutout to Michelle and Eric Meltzer, my parents, who always support the show.
