Podcast 009: Dan Cornick on The Amatola Hike, Away With The Fairies (famous Hogsback backpackers), an encounter with a fairy, and more

“A lot of the hikers I deal with have done pretty much all of the hikes in the country. I don’t think I have ever heard anybody say there is a more tough one. It is the toughest. But everybody who does it says it’s the best one they’ve ever done too.”

Quick request: I’m looking for short cell-phone audio recordings (1 minute to 1 min 30 seconds) where you speak about your perspective-broadening stories. What happened, and how did it broaden your perspective? Send these to [email protected] and they may be incorporated into the start of the podcasts. 

Dan Cornick and I met up in Hogsback and had a conversation about the astoundingly beautiful (but tough) Amatola Hiking Trail, his backpackers (aptly named Away With The Fairies), his Amatola Trails business (which services the hike), the beauty of the mountains, an interesting fairy experience he had at the backpackers, and meditation and mindfulness.
