Nicole Antoinette recently released a trail journal of her 2017 thru-hike of the Arizona Trail called “How to Be Alone.” And that’s what we met up to talk about on a trail near Boston: how her first thru hike came to be, how she persevered, and why she decided to add to the trail journal canon. While quitting can indeed be a kindness, Nicole solo hiked all 800 rugged miles of the Arizona Trail. And it all started when she was over 30,000 feet up in the air, reading a book on a plane.

While Nicole says she’s a “recovering advice giver,” we know there’s lots of wisdom to be found in this episode: about knowing when it’s time to take a leap, how to get to know yourself better, giving back through your creative work, and more. Join us on the trail as we crunch leaves, get spun around, and find our way back again.
