Ep. 527: From Engineer to a Backpacking Career - Jessica “Dixie” Mills


When Jessica Mills, aka “Dixie”, quit her engineering job and began her first thru-hiking adventure of the Appalachian Trail, she never imagined her YouTube channel would grow into what it has become. Through her easy-going demeanor, matter of fact advice, and overall charming attitude, she has become one of the go-to sources of advice, inspiration,  and how-to channels to learn about all things backpacking. I hope you enjoy this look behind the scenes of the Homemade Wanderlust channel and the triple-crowner who hosts it.
