Date Published: September 8th, 2021 / Length: 56 Minutes / Hosts: Dan & Chantal Deveau / Guests: Heidi & Her Daughter Chloe /
Topic/Summary: In this episode, our goal is to introduce to our family and friends some words and terminology of the thru-hiking community. The first half of this podcast was recorded as school was finishing for the summer. Chloe joins us for this segment so there are four of us on the podcast. The second part was recorded in September after summer. Chloe could not join us for this segment.
