I didn't realize Daisy's weight was an issue in the hiking community. From the YT videos I've watched, there are people of difference shapes, sizes, ages and color on the trail. I didn't think weight would be an issue. Heck, there are some YT vloggers whose main goal is to lose weight while thru-hiking. It's really no big deal.
I doubt it is an issue for the hiking community. I think it's an issue for her, both physically and mentally. Since I first posted about her in this thread, she doesn't seem to be doing as well as she was. Then she was doing an endless hiking going from trail to trail.

I don't think she has successfully completed a thru hike since then. She jumped around on the CDT. Last year she quit the PCT at the beginning. This year she quit her Florida hike at the beginning. This year it's going to be hard for anybody to complete the PCT due to the conditions.

I hope things improve for her and she can get back to what she was doing.

These are a couple of thru hikers I'm currently watching.

A relatively new channel is Meandering.MeganB She is a furrowed airline worker who just started a hike of the Foothills Trail in North Carolina in preparation for an Appalachian Trail thru hike. She films pretty nice hiking videos.

Another channel I watch is Daisy Hikes. I don't know what she does. She just seems to hike non-stop from trail to trail, and she doesn't use a tent. She just sleeps out on the ground. Nothing really seems to stop her.
