In today's episode, we talk to Dawn Bates aka "Right Turn." Dawn began her mission to section hike the Appalachian Trail when her kids left home and she loves every minute of it.

As you will hear Dawn has a love for the trail and her fellow hikers. She also has an incredible story of her day on Mt. Katahdin.


"Let's Talk Gear" with Steve Kammeyer: Steve Kammeyer and Greg Bell are back on to discuss their hike to the Pfeifferhorn in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. Listen in as they discuss a crazy lightning strike the first night and find out if Greg actually went to the top of the Pfeifferhorn!
