There aren’t many thru-hikers or adventurers that impress me more than, as I like to call him, the GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) named Billy. It’s ironic that we still have never met on the Pacific Crest Trail or John Muir Trail, given both of our repeat offender status on both trails. In 2010 I finally had the fortune to cross paths with Billy Goat on Layton Key, during the Key West road-walk on the Eastern Continental Trail. We had a thoughtful conversation, and I’m grateful for the encouragement and advice this icon of the thru-hiking community passed to me.
