#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.

#27 | Thru-Hiking the Carolina’s Foothills Trail with Mitchell Larby

May 7th, 2019

On this episode, my good buddy from the Appalachian Trail and former guest Mitchell Larby and I basically run through our entire thru hike of the Foothills Trail. We break down each day and definitely go into some side rants as well. The Foothills Trail is a fantastic trail for somebody to hike in preparation for the Appalachian Trail, with tons of great waterfalls, rivers, and beautiful campsites.

January 21st, 2019

Jessica Pu joins Trail Tales! She is the fiance of episode 8's guest, Baker Bokorney, and they both successfully completed a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail in the summer of 2018. Jessica and I jump around to a few different topics related to our thru-hikes;  if thru-hikers ever get stung by bees (the answer is yes), which section nearly made Jessica quit, and some advice for couples who wish to attempt a thru-hike together in the future.
