Steve Adams -Episode #220 Luke Jordan (Strider)


Recommended Posts

We’re not so focused on the AT this week, with Luke “Strider” Jordan taking on some of the wilder American trails. His first thru-hike was the 4600 mile North Country Trail, and he became the Earl Schaffer of the Great Plains Trail when he completed the very first thru-hike of that new trail.


On the way, he learned what worked and what didn’t. He shares some fascinating insights in his conversation with Steve
You can connect with Strider and find out more about these trails at the following links.

Kate Stillwell, or Phoenix, has stopped in town for the first time, mainly to resolve a blister issue. She and Steve chat twice as she continues her steady progress.

Grandma Gatewood’s Walk is a little truncated this week, with only the first part of Chapter 14. The second part of the chapter will be next week.
