  2. You would love the CDT and PCT Yukon

  3. What's up, Yukon!? I saw you on Naked and Afraid and as much as I both love and hate that show on Discovery Channel, you seemed to be a purist in all ways and I totally identified with your attitude towards life and the outdoors-to not just survive and subsist, but to THRIVE. I thought your wilderness survival skills were impressive and top-notch in the Florida Everglades and thought your indomitable spirit and backwoods knowledge was very inspiring. Additionally, I just wanted to thank you for your military service and also glad you found your peace and healing thru-hiking the AT. I definitely know I did. I would be very interested in learning from you and your experiences and to hone in on my primitive survival calling. I hope to hear from you! Keep killing it on XL!
