Ashley and I have been taking turns with our copy of Jennifer Pharr Davis‘ book, Becoming Odyssa. We have really enjoyed chatting about the book and considering our future hikes together on the AT.
Particularly, we have enjoyed the stories of her connections with folks that she meets along the more than 2,100 miles of the Appalachian Trail. Ashley, of course, took the speed route through the book and I am more than half way…taking the slow route. All the while, it has been a very engaging book to read.
Recently Jennifer (trail name: Odyssa) was at one of our favorite local outfitters - Walkabout Outfitter (www.walkaboutoutfitter.com) and Channel 7 News stopped by for an interview.
