#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!

#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.

#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/

#36 | Peak Bagging the Catskills 3500-Footers, and John Muir Trail Permits and Preparation with Nick Scaramuzzo

July 16th, 2019

Nick Scaramuzzo is a seasoned Northeast hiker, having peak-bagged in Vermont, the Adirondacks, and the Catskills, just to name a few places. In our chat we discuss the Catskills 3500-footer club and how the "rules" of the hiking list vary slightly from the more popular Adirondack 46 and White Mountain 48. We also talk about his upcoming thru-hike of the John Muir Trail, and some of his preparation for that, including how he navigated the tricky permit system in order to make his hike happen.
