#88 | CRUSHING the FKT for the White Mountains Direttissima

September 15th, 2020

Will Peterson thru hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2019, and after cancelling a 2020 PCT thru hike he decided to go after the White Mountains Direttissima FKT. Despite no previous experience setting FKTs, Will crushed the route and ended up setting the new unsupported FKT at 5 days, 13 hours and 5 minutes. Super awesome!

#87 | Sintax77 on hiking the DEVIL’S PATH in the Catskills

September 9th, 2020

Sintax77 joins me again to talk about our hike of the Devil's Path in the Catskill mountains of New York. We did this hike in mid-August of 2020... and it absolutely kicked my butt. We were successful but I certainly underestimated the trail, so it was a humbling experience! In this episode we cover all the logistics of hiking Devil's Path, and much more!

#86 | Hiking the Vermont Long Trail as a first Thru Hike

August 18th, 2020

My good friend Kayla joins the show this week to talk all about her FIRST THRU HIKE EVER in which she completed MY FAVORITE TRAIL EVER i.e the Vermont Long Trail! The Long Trail is tough, and hiking it in a group of 4 is even tougher, so I think it's awesome that she was able to crush it! We talk about group hiking, some of her favorite spots on the trail, and at the end of the episode she shares a story of a bear encounter in the Adirondacks.

#82 | Never Before Heard Backpacking Gear INVENTION IDEAS with Baker Bokorney

July 14th, 2020

Baker is back, and for this episode we blatantly rip off Backpacker Radio's patent pending idea. We spent the entire episode discussing our ideas for new backpacking gear inventions. From Bear Spray trekking poles to a poop trowel which doubles as a spork, this one was a riot.

#81 | Never let Your Guard Down while Hiking with Philip Werner of SectionHiker.com

July 8th, 2020

Philip Werner is the creator behind SectionHiker.com, one of the first and most popular backpacking blogs on the internet. His website has been an important source of information to me since I first began hiking, so I feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to chat with him. We talk a lot about the White Mountains, Redlining, and at the end Philip tells a story that should be a reminder to all experienced hikers that you can never let your guard down when it comes to your safety on the trail.
