Episode #53 - Lee "Boots" Fortune - What is Hike For Healing?
Manage episode 359094852 series 3004445
In this episode, Courtney talks with Lee “Boots” Fortune. They discuss the efforts Lee is making to help spread the message that the outdoors is for everyone, his controversial snack choice and they answer the question - What is Hike for Healing?
“My name is Lee but on the trail, on YouTube, socials, and even at work I am known as Boots (a name I came by honest). I have also been called a LAD (as opposed to LASH) as I routinely hike longer dayhikes (20+ miles). Last year along with my often times hiking partner, Steps, held our first Hike for Healing event in which we successfully completed the Tour de LeConte hiking over 45 miles in less than 24 hours. Through ongoing conversation, lots more interest, and vastly increased participation, we are having a Hike for Healing 2023 in which we will attempt to complete segment 1 of the Mountains to Sea Trail in less than 24 hours. I love my family, I love the outdoors, creating Youtube content, and I love hiking and exploring. I am also a musician of many years (what I actually went to school for), and, as a personal non hiking hobby enjoy making and playing cigar box guitars. :)”
