Are there any reasons to be hopeful? Listen and find out.

#71 | Sarah Jones Decker on Appalachian Trail Shelters

In today's episode of Backpacker Radio, presented by The Trek, we are joined by Sarah Jones Decker, author of the new gorgeous photobook "The Appalachian Trail: Backcountry Shelters, Lean-tos, and Huts".  We learn what goes into a project as massive as doing a photo essay of all of the AT's shelters, Sarah's personal favorites, the history of these structures, which have the best privies, and much more.  Sarah is also the co-owner of Root Bottom Farms, an organic farm based in North Carolina, and we selfishly pick her brain on how to suck less as plants.

Episode #217 - Sarah Jones Decker (Harvest)

Read more

This week, we have a book theme in the show, with a giveaway of six signed books. The principal guest is Sarah Jones Decker, or Harvest, who thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2008, but that wasn't the primary reason that we have Sarah as a guest. She has photographed and written about all the AT shelters in a beautiful book that evokes all the memories we share at those often rundown places.

You can connect with Sarah and buy a signed copy of her book at https://www.sarahjonesdecker.com/

Sarah's question as part of our six-book giveaway contest is: What is the largest non-hut shelter on the AT?

Bruce Matson also came back to the show to talk about the three books that he has written since his thru-hike. You can find his books on Amazon at this link. https://amzn.to/3ccmmrU

Bruce's question is: In which town do participants in the Curly Maple Pizza Challenge purchase the beer and pizza necessary to complete the challenge?

I've added my two signed books about my 2014 thru-hike and my question is: What shelter has the highest elevation on the trail?

Answer ALL THREE questions correctly, email your answers to me at steve@mightyblueontheat.com, and you'll be entered into a draw for ALL SIX signed books. Best of luck.

Finally today, Grandma Gatewood faces a storm in both her personal and hiking lives. She also teaches us a lesson that was being learned the hard way, for some, in the 1950s.
