On this episode: the Triple Crown, ceramics, corporate finance, and hot chocolate shots. We’re talking with Carol “Cheer” Coyne, thru-hiker and founder of THRU-r.com – a community for thru-hikers, trail angels, and those who would like to be.
Carol got hooked by the Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge in 2017, and has since gone on to thru-hike the Pacific Crest Trail, the Continental Divide Trail, and is currently finishing her Triple Crown on the Appalachian Trail.
In this Episode
- Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge – rekindled her love of hiking adventures
- THRU-r.com – the hiker community founded by Carol
- ADZPCTKO – the now-defunct “kick-off” event for the Pacific Crest Trail
- Goat Haunt Ranger Station – where they check your passport before you head south on the CDT
