    Hello fellow barefoot hikers!

    I've been following barefoot adventurer Ken Posner's blog "The Long Brown Path" for a while, and was happy to discover that last month he succeeded on his third try (in three years) to barefoot backpack the 211-mile John Muir Trail through California's Sierra Nevada, complete with a shoe-less summitting of Mt. Whitney, the highest mountain in the Lower 48 states of the U.S.

    I sent him some questions; he sent some answers; enjoy!
