They're known, on the trail, as Rough and Tumble: two retirees who spend winters in Florida and summers in Vermont - where they can often be found on the trail.  Jonathan Wahl and Leigh Hunt of Waitsfield also have a website featuring an impressive list of podcasts and other resources designed to offer advice and encouragement to Long Trail hikers. 

One of their specialties is advising people who plan to through hike the trail end to end. It takes about a month to cover the trail's 273 miles and it's a challenge both psychologically and emotionally.

They spoke with VPR's Jane Lindholm about  how to prepare for the hike.
