For this episode of The All-Around Adventure Podcast, I’m joined by thru-hiker, Brix.
Brix is a fellow Michigander who has always found enjoyment out in nature. She got her start as a hiker with some trails in her local area. Though eventually she found herself wanting to go further and she began seeking out longer-distance trails in Michigan, as well as other places around the country. She and I have also traced some of each other’s steps along Michigan’s section of the North Country Trail. In places like Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, the Porcupine Mountains, and the Mouth of the Two-Hearted River. Though now she is taking on a new challenge! For as of the release of this episode, Brix is currently hiking the Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada!
In this episode, Brix tells us about some of her hiking experiences. She shares some of the highlights that she remembers, as well as some of the misadventures that she faced along the way. She also goes over how she prepared herself to get ready to step off on the Pacific Crest Trail. Including the gear that she acquired for it, saving money and budgeting, and becoming mentally and physically ready. Furthermore, Brix shares some of the life lessons that she learned from hiking the different trails that she’s been on. Such as experiencing growth by getting out of your comfort zone!
