Mighty Blue on the Appalachian Trail:

The Ultimate Mid-Life Crisis

Apr 13, 2023

We leave the AT behind today for a trip to Sweden and the Kungsleden, a trail that I’d never heard of before. Bob Delaney, or Jon’s Dad, has a history with Sweden and returned there to hike this lesser known trail. He was so enamored by the trail that he’s started a YouTube channel, a blog, and written a book about it.

You can reach out to Bob directly at He’ll be happy to hear from you and will try to help you if you consider hiking this Swedish trail.

You can also find Bob on YouTube at, his blog is at, while his recently completed book is on Amazon at

In our Mighty Blue Class of 23, Chuck Faulkinberry had to leave the trail when we last spoke, but he’s back today with positive news about his injury and his prospects going forward.

Also, Nancy Farrell has had to postpone her hike due to a family illness, but she, too, has good news about her hike.

Remember to check out our Woods Hole Weekend Video Series, which is currently available–UNTIL THE END OF APRIL–for $100 off. You can see the trailer at
