#35 | Two Appalachian Trail Thru-Hikers Talk About Their Backpacking and Hiking Trail Grievances

July 10th, 2019

Baker Bokorney is back for round 3! Baker is an experienced thru-hiker, having hiked the Appalachian Trail, Florida Trail, and half the Arizona Trail in 2018. We decided to have some fun with this episode, and go over our hiking and backpacking grievances. Towards the end, Baker gets into some grievances specific to Trail Tales (in addition to being the most frequent guest, he is also a listener of the show), and I finally give him a chance to share a trail story! I forgot BOTH times we spoke before. Sorry Baker. Also congrats on the wedding when you read this.

#32 | The Most Badass Hiking Dog, the Cohos Trail, and Winter Hiking with Alton Eckel

June 11th, 2019

Alton Eckel and her dog Cole have been ripping miles in the White Mountains and elsewhere for nearly 10 years now. We jump all over the place in this week's episode, talking about her thru-hike of the Cohos Trail in New Hampshire, how amazing of a hiking partner her dog Cole is, and how the pair were the first to complete the Northeast Ultra 8. That is just the tip of the iceberg however; tune in to hear about everything else we discussed!

#31 | Sintax77 on The White Mountains, Winter Hiking, and Much More

June 4th, 2019

Shawn Crawford, known as Sintax77 on YouTube, began sharing his backpacking and hiking adventures with the world in 2011, and hasn't looked back since. He has created one of the most successful backpacking channels on the internet, and continues to release high quality documentations of his journey's in the backcountry. 

We jump around a ton in this episode, covering topics such as the White Mountains (and how they shape up against the Adirondacks), winter hiking/camping, and how Shawn's philosophy has changed over the years concerning ultralight backpacking. If you haven't watched any Sintax77 videos, go check them out right now: https://www.youtube.com/user/sintax77
