Episode Description:

Host Veronica Andrews had a delightful conversation with Jim Haskell about his book, Two Tents. He began dreaming about hiking the twenty-two-hundred-mile Appalachian Trail when he was nine-after being left behind one weekend when his father and older siblings climbed Mount Katahdin, the northern end of the AT, in their native Maine. The dream became an obsession.
But then life got in the way. College. Marriage. Graduate school. Career. By his late twenties, Jim had nearly convinced himself that taking a year off to hike the AT just wouldn't work. The dream was dying-until an encounter with a disenchanted thru-hiker inspired Jim to revise his dream. Don't thru-hike the AT in one year. Take your time. Section-hike it instead.
Two Tents is Jim's account of living his dream for twenty-one consecutive years. "Two Tents" became his trail name. This book is much more than an account of Jim's encounters with bears and close calls with death. It's about how the AT became Jim's path to self-discovery; how a man matures during his thirties and forties; how love can be lost and found again; how one embraces fatherhood.
Two Tents is about making dreams come true.
