#19 | Ranking The States on the Appalachian Trail with Mikey “Mullet” Brenkus


This week thru-hiker Mikey Brenkus, our guest all the way back from episode four, joins the show to talk about his ranking of the states on the Appalachian Trail. We go through our ranks one-by-one, and discuss why we ranked each state the way we did. Our standard for the rankings was very loose, arbitrarily factoring in difficulty, scenery, and our experiences in each state. Is Pennsylvania really as bad as people say it is? Find out based on our ranks.
