On this episode of The Author Factor Podcast I am having a conversation with retired Air Force veteran and author, Paul "Roscoe" White.
Paul is a 21-year Air Force veteran with over 1,500 hours as tactical flight instructor in the F-15E, F-16 and F-35. He still teaches and mentors young fighter pilots as a civilian contract fighter pilot instructor.
In 2009, while temporarily assigned to Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska, Paul had a 48-hour window of free time before resuming an intense combat training exercise. Never one to shy from adventure or a challenge, Roscoe and two fighter pilot buddies made the ill-prepared and life-changing decision to hike the infamous Stampede Trail in search of the “Magic Bus,” the same bus where Christopher McCandless died in 1992 and whose life inspired a famous book and a major motion picture.
