Mei-Ling shares her experience hiking the Buckeye Trail (BT) as part of a Warrior Expeditions adventure. She also goes into some background of how she set out on a section hike of the Appalachian Trail leading up to doing the BT.  We talk about trail towns, the amazing volunteers of the Buckeye Trail Association and what it's like to be a trail angel and trail maintainer. The Buckeye Trail is a 1,444-mile hiking trail and long-distance trail that loops around the state of Ohio.  There are 26 sections that make up the trail. "First envisioned in the late 1950's as a trail from the Ohio River to Lake Erie, the Buckeye Trail evolved into a large loop, branching both north and east from Cincinnati. The separate legs rejoin in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park near Cleveland, and complete the trip to the lake. Because it is a loop, it is also in essence, endless. You may start a hike at any point and hike as long as you want without ever reaching an end!"
