#49 | White Mountains Redlining; Beyond the White Mountain 4000 Footers with Redline Guiding’s Mike Cherim

October 22nd, 2019

Redline Guiding's owner and founder Mike Cherim joins the show this week to talk all about the White Mountains of New Hampshire! Mike is an experienced hiker who has completed many notable accomplishments. From thru-hiking the Long Trail to Redlining the White Mountains, Mike has many miles under his belt, and we had plenty to talk about. We discussed what White Mountain Redlining is, how there is much more to the White Mountains than just the 4000-footers, and how he was able to take his passion of hiking and turn it into a successful business by starting Redline Guiding. Be sure to check out their website, Facebook, and Instagram.

#47 | Sintax77 On the Adirondacks, Hammock Camping, and Much More

October 8th, 2019

Sintax77 On the Adirondacks, Hammock Camping, and Much More

Sintax77 (aka Shawn Crawford) is back for round two this week! Much like our first episode, we jumped all over the place in our conversation, mostly focusing on his latest film 'Military Surplus Camping - B-47 Crash Site - Adirondack Mountains', as well as talk about some of his hikes in the White Mountains and of course... hammock camping! In the ever-growing pool of hiking Youtubers, Sintax77's videos continue to stand out to me due to his creative ideas and drive to push his abilities when it comes to film-making. I always have a blast talking about the White Mountains and Adirondacks, and I hope Sintax77 will come back on soon!

#46 | How to Take Awesome Photos While Hiking with Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker Matt Morelli

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.

#44 | Should Mount Tecumseh Be Included in the White Mountain 4000 Footers List? Peak-Bagging the New Hamphsire 4000 Footers with Mac Cerullo

September 17th, 2019

Should Mount Tecumseh Be Included in the White Mountain 4000 Footers List? Peak-Bagging the New Hamphsire 4000 Footers with Mac Cerullo

Journalist and peak-bagger Mac Cerullo joins the show to talk about writing for Outside Magazine about Philip Carcia's White Mountain Single Year Grid, and about his own quest to hike the New Hampshire 4000 Footers. We discuss many topics about the Whites, ranging from some of the areas we would like to hike in the WMNF that are not part of the 4000 footers list, some of the overrated New Hampshire 4000 footers, and about the controversy surrounding the fate of Mount Tecumseh and other peaks, since they have been proven to be under 4000 feet.

#43 | Thru-Hiking the PCT and Starting the Byland Podcast with Pacific Crest Trail Thru-Hiker Emory Wanger

September 3rd, 2019

Emory Wanger, who hosts the Byland Podcast, joins the show this week to talk about thru hiking the PCT, backpack-hunting, and of course... podcasting! We jumped all around in this one, and it was almost therapeutic for me to discuss the behind the scenes details of starting and maintaining a podcast within the hiking/backpacking/thru hiking world that we both exist in. Of course, it was also great to hear about thru-hiking the PCT, and everything else Emory had to say! If you like Trail Tales, you will for sure like Byland, so go check it out at https://byland.co/podcast

#42 | A Record Attempt in the High Peaks of the Adirondacks with 46 Climbs Co-Founder Kolby Ziemendorf

August 27th, 2019

46 Climbs co-founder Kolby Ziemendorf is back on the show to talk about his recent attempt to break the record for hiking the most High Peaks in the Adirondacks in 24 hours. Unfortunately, the attempt did not work out, and we talk all about what happened. We also cover some of his preparation for taking on such a daunting hiking challenge, the record fund-raising year that 46 Climbs is having, and we even touch on how he will be thru-hiking the Northville-Placid Trail in just a few weeks. Kolby has hiked all 46 of the Adirondack High Peaks, and has intimate knowledge of the Adirondacks. It's always a pleasure to chat with him, and I am sure he will come back on in the future!

#41 | Thru-Hiking the Colorado Trail with Scott Hughes

August 20th, 2019

Scott Hughes recently completed a thru-hike of the Colorado Trail, and joins the show to talk all about it. We cover all the essential information that someone contemplating thru-hiking the Colorado Trail needs to know, including resupply, weather, camping, and much more. Also, you can apparently thru-BIKE this trail as well as thru-hike it. You read that correctly. How sick is that! This was Scott's second episode of Trail Tales, as we did an episode way back in November of 2018 about his thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail. I am grateful that he was willing to come back on, and share all about his experience thru-hiking the Colorado Trail!

#40 | Vlogging While Thru-Hiking the Appalachian Trail, and Proposing At End with Frozen from Outdoor Adventures on Youtube

August 13th, 2019

Frozen from the Youtube Channel Outdoor Adventures joins the show this week to talk about his recent thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail. We jump all around in this episode and got to cover many topics pertaining to thru-hiking, vlogging, and life on the trail. Frozen talks about some of the good and bad parts about being an Appalachian Trail vlogger, how thru-hiking was able to bring out a more extroverted side of his personality, and how he proposed to his then-girlfriend on top of Mount Katahdin, soon after completing his hike!

#39 | All About Thru-Hiking New Hampshire’s Cohos Trail with Aaron Ibey

August 6th, 2019

Thru-hiker and photographer Aaron Ibey joins the show again, this time to talk about his hike of New Hampshire's Cohos Trail. This relatively unknown trail runs from the New Hampshire/Canada border, 170 miles south to Crawford Notch in the White Mountains. Aaron shares all the details from his thru-hike, including his resupply strategy, the types of terrain he encountered, and the abundance of wildlife he saw. This trail really seems like a hidden gem, often overshadowed (quite literally) by the famous White Mountains that exist just to it's south. 

Keep an eye on Aaron's Instagram to see photos from his hike: https://www.instagram.com/ibeyprofin/

#38 | 576 White Mountain 4000 Footers in Record Time with Philip Carcia (Finding Philip)

July 30th, 2019

Round three with Philip Carcia, also known as Finding Philip! Wrapping up the story of his White Mountain Single Year Grid, Philip goes into detail about the role that social media played in his project, some of his highest and lowest points, and what kept him motivated on the trail, day after day after day. Philip hiked every single one of the White Mountain 4000 Footers in every single month... for an entire year! If you've hiked any of the New Hampshire 4000 Footers or anywhere else in the White Mountains, you know how difficult they are and can probably imagine the strength it took for Philip to complete this goal. He has been incredibly humble about the whole thing, and I am beyond grateful that he was willing to spend so much time talking to me and sharing his story over the last few months.
