Lea 'Blue Cheese' Geibel
It’s been so amazing to get to talk to thruhikers from other countries this season. You might remember episode 1 of this season with @ValIsmaili who hiked the Transcaucasian trail. He connected me with @Leahikes who is an expert thruhiker from Germany. She’s lived and hiked basically all over the world.
In this episode Lea and I got to chat about arranging your life to allow for lots of hiking, the time her backpack got stollen in Chile, vanlife in Switzerland, gear and food – of course, resupplying in a foreign country and hiking alone as a solo female traveler. We also discuss what makes an expert because often, even though we might be incredibly experienced, we don’t feel like “experts.”
