Steve Adams -Episode #208 – Chloe Decamera (Vulture)


Recommended Posts

We first met Chloe Decamera a few weeks ago on the show, informing us about the critical Leave No Trace principles and, in a follow-up conversation, it was clear that Chloe had her own Appalachian Trail story about her trek in 2015.


She was very intentional about how she came to the trail, writing a thesis about Appalachian Trail thru-hiking as a spiritual experience and volunteering for the ATC. As you’ll hear, meeting the inspirational Jennifer Pharr Davis was a great motivator for her own journey.

Also today, we have the start of a new series; A Woman of a Certain Age, where Kate Stillwell prepares for and then attempts a thru-hike of the AT from April 1. In this episode, Steve and Kate talk, along with Kate’s daughter Alexa, or Tinkerbell.

Our new book, Grandma Gatewood’s Walk, by Ben Montgomery, teaches us more about the harshness of Emma’s life and the early days of her epic journey.
