The Golden Ride

Jonah McDonald
Audio version of this story here.

When Jonah McDonald announced that he was going to walk from Maine to Atlanta, his parents scratched their heads. “But think of the stories I’ll have to tell!” Jonah said. 

He proceeded to hike all 2,100-plus miles of the Appalachian Trail, and hasn’t stopped moving since.

For this installment of our Storytellers series, we invited Jonah McDonald in to tell a story about his hike that he calls “The Golden Ride.”
