Carrot Quinn joins us on the show again to talk about her latest memoir: The Sunset Route. For those who read and loved Thru Hiking Will Break Your Heart, The Sunset Route fills in a lot of the backstory. Billed as an adventure memoir, (Carrot spent her early 20’s hopping freight trains and hitchhiking before discovering thru-hiking) the book really shines in telling the story of how Carrot found nurturing, forgiveness, and healing through nature during after a traumatic childhood.
In this episode, Gale and Carrot talk about her relationship with adventure today, the vulnerability of putting your story out there, the grief we all carry, the ways Carrot is giving back, and more.
