Ep. 104: Warren Doyle / AT Legend
This week we sat down with Warren Doyle. Warren has been walking the Appalachian Trail since 1972 (i.e., 38,000 miles). He has traversed the entire AT a record eighteen times! He loves to share his love and enthusiasm for the trail and educate people on how to fulfill their dream of hiking it. Check out Warren's programs at . www.warrendoyle.com.

Some corrections:
The vision behind the ten AT Expeditions was 1974. The last expedition up the whole trail was 2017. But I am still doing SmartHike.
The Appalachian Trail Institute was started in 1989 and still going.

I'm looking forward to the last two ATI sessions of 2018 - Oct. 1-5 and Oct. 8-12. Twenty-one AT dreamers: folks from 14 states (California; South Dakota; Missouri; Washington; Mississippi; Arkansas; Alabama; Texas; Tennessee; Kentucky; North Carolina; Florida; South Carolina and Ohio) will be staying at the Appalachian Folk School for five days learning how to increase their chances of succeeding on their journeys.
Since 1989, I have worked with over 1,000 AT dreamers from 41 states and four foreign countries. It has been, and will continue to be, fulfilling to this educator. Onward!

Lots of cool activities between dancing at the Weekend In The Mountains. Sept.24-26
If you’re itching to contra (and waltz and bike, hike, swim….just have good old-fashioned fun…) Mountain City is an easy drive from the Cape Fear. And Appalachian Folk School should definitely be on your bucket list of places to dance! Glad to answer any questions. 💃🏼
My father was a master craftsman, wood turner, wood carver, and made fine furniture for years, spending his last few years mostly turning wood and making bowls from all sorts of wood--mostly walnut cherry, maple and spalted maple, but he had other species as well. He passed away in 2020 and we will finally be having an auction of his estate, his shop and his wood this coming weekend. The viewing is Friday and auction Saturday in Loudon, TN. Would you mind sharing with your school and students, as he has lathes, saws, tools, wood blanks and lumber, as well as a huge collection of antique tools? Here is the link: https://www.furrow.com/event/absolute-auction-the-estate-of-clarence-bub-morris/ Thank you so much for passing along to others who may enjoy this sale and find useful tools or wood for projects. Sincerely, Linda Morris Campbell (his daughter)
