Michelle “SuperClassy” Markel on the realities of trail and van life, public lands advocacy, and challenging our notions of other people

Download

Michelle “SuperClassy” Markel is a long-distance hiker with more than 8,000 mostly-solo trail miles, from the swamps of Big Cypress on the Florida Trail to the northern Cascades of Washington on the Pacific Crest Trail. In 2017, recognizing that the long trails could not exist without the public lands beneath them, she launched supportpubliclands.com, which she is currently rebuilding completely, in an effort to inspire outdoors advocacy by encouraging outdoors activity. When she is not on trail, she can typically be found exploring and van-dwelling somewhere on our 850 million acres of public lands.
