#165: Danny "Oreo" -- Tales From the Pacific Crest Trail
10.04.2019 - By Like a Bigfoot
This week we welcome Danny "Oreo" a world traveler from Germany fresh of of completing her hike of the Pacific Crest Trail!
Over the 2,653 miles from Mexico to Canada Danny experienced all the ups and downs that the trail brings. Forming beautiful friendships and pushing her own boundaries, she battled everything from the dry heat (and hills!) of the desert to postholing through insanely deep snow in the high country. This being her first trip to America, she also formed a unique perspective on the beauty and culture of our country (and the weirdness of Poptarts).
Her last seven years have been absorbed with travel. She left school, flew to Australia where she spent a year before deciding to check out New Zealand and, before she knew it, she was a full time traveler.
Danny is quite a fun, adventurous spirit and I was curious if lessons she learned from traveling came into play through her 5 months trekking through the woods.
I have so much respect and envy for the folks who take on thru-hiking and absolutely love sharing their stories on the podcast. To me, the Appalachian Trail or the Pacific Crest Trail feels like the epitome of epic advneture and I really think anyone who is seeking a change in life, searching for a community of awesome people, or even pursuing self realization should take thru-hiking one of these epic trails into consideration.
Thank you so much for sharing Danny!! I look forward to chatting with you again in the future!
Enjoy the show!
