So it ends. I arrived at Fort Pickens this evening just as the sun slipped below the horizon. Ending my NOBO thru and setting a new self supported fastest known time (FKT) of the Florida National Scenic Trail. 24 days 11 hours 45 minutes. I left the southern terminus on Feb 2 at 7:00am EST and arrived at Fort Pickens Feb 26 at 5:45pm CST. I've added one hour to my time in order to account for the time zone change. Chasing this FKT was an amazing, often surreal, experience. The memories I'll carry from this Feb will certainly last a lifetime. At the moment I'm pretty exhausted and looking forward to a bed and shower. Two things I've been without from one end of the trail to the other. Many thanks to all who cheered me on along the way. It meant a lot! #floridatrail #thruhike #fkt

Love your podcast so much! Just listened to all of them. I don’t know anything about podcasting or recording but one thing I am not sure you can look into or not is the volume differences. Your guest seem to be way quieter than you so I have to turn the volume up when they speak and turn it down when you speak. Back and forth the whole episode.
I love hearing everyone’s personal trail experience. Can’t wait until I graduate so I can do my own thru hike! Only two years to go.
We listened to this one and the listener episode on the way to corkscrew. I love learning more about different hikers and their methods.
