#68 | Julia Sheehan (Rocket) on Thru Hiking the Appalachian Trail and Pacific Crest Trail

March 17th, 2020

Thru Hiker Julia "Rocket" Sheehan joins the show this week! We talk all about her thru hike of the Appalachian Trail, and her plans to thru hike the Pacific Crest Trail in 2020. Unfortunately, this episode was recorded before the escalation of COVID-19, which has changed Julia Sheehan's plans for the Pacific Crest Trail. Be sure to tune in next week for a follow-up episode, where she will share her new plans, and give some insight on the situation as it pertains to thru hiking since she is a nurse and has a medical background.

#59 | How to be MENTALLY Tough when Thru Hiking the Appalachian Trail with Early Riser

January 7th, 2020

Early Riser thru hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2017, posting on his Youtube vlog the entire way. He has since taken on a very motivational role for future Appalachian Trail thru hikers, posting videos that highlight how to achieve success when thru hiking the trail. Many of these videos highlight the mental side of thru hiking, and are very helpful for those who take mental preparation seriously. Early Riser and I have much in common in terms of how we view thru hike preparation, and it was a pleasure being able to discuss these topics with him.

#54 | A SOBO Appalachian Trail Thru Hike with Christopher Johnson

November 26th, 2019

Christopher Johnson, who goes by the trail name Anubis, is currently heading SOBO on the Appalachian Trail. He is the first guest of Trail Tales to be in the middle of a thru-hike while we chat, which provided us with endless topics to cover. We cover how he is holding up physically, mentally, and emotionally. We talk about the unfortunate cold weather that has hit the southern portion of the Appalachian Trail, and how himself and other SOBOs are dealing with it. He is well past the half-way point, but still has a good chunk of miles to go so check out his Instagram!  https://www.instagram.com/a_walk_with_winnie/

October 1st, 2019

Everybody is trying to step up their Instagram game these days (or at least I am), so I'm stoked I got to talk to Appalachian Trail thru-hiker and photographer Matt Morelli about the process behind his photos. After thru-hikng the AT, Matt realized his potential with camera, and decided to pursue it more seriously. We talk all about how you can step up your photography game while thru-hiking or on the trail -with both a camera or just a smart phone.
