#80 | An Absolute FULL SEND in the White Mountains of New Hampshire with Socked In Hikes

June 30th, 2020

Socked In (Rebecca Sperry) is attempting to set the female FKT for the White Mountains Redlining project. She just started and is full of ambition, and has a plan. She is a very experienced hiker and loves the Whites, and it was great to talk about the logistics and difficulties that will come with such an intense project. Much respect!

#78 | A Pacific Crest Trail Thru Hiker Shares it All with Ryan Stratton

June 16th, 2020

Ryan Stratton hiked the PCT in 2018 and also happens to be a member of the same fraternity as me. In this episode I ask him a bunch of questions about West Coast thru hiking that make me nervous to venture out there... most of you probably know what half those things already are at this point. Also, sorry I was so tired for this one.

#76 | How NOT to Thru-Hike the Appalachian Trail with Joe Biasi

June 2nd, 2020

Joe Biasi thru hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2015. Like many other thru hikers, Joe struggled to keep up with the mental challenges of the Appalachian Trail. Rather than quitting, he continued on out of stubbornness and ended up finishing the trail. This might seem like an inspiring story, but in this episode Joe talks about why he wishes things might have gone a bit differently.

#74 | Follow Bigfoot on the Superior Hiking Trail

May 12th, 2020

Follow Bigfoot joins the show to talk all about the Superior Hiking Trail in Minnesota. I've been curious to learn about this trail for a long time, so it was great to hear Bigfoot share all the essential information one must know before attempting a thru hike. In addtion, Bigfoot shares stories from his unsupported FKT of the Superior Hiking Trail, which is just as badass as it sounds.

#73 | Behind the Scenes of the Backpacking YouTube Niche with Devin from Backcountry Exposure

April 21st, 2020

Devin from the YouTube channel Backcountry Exposure joins me this week! We talk about fishing in the backcountry, living/hiking in Utah, and being a YouTuber in the backpacking niche. Make sure you listen to the end, because Devin tells a pretty gnarly story about hiking with his dog - a story which should remind all of us to take precautions when bringing our pets into the backcountry.

#71 | Jupiter Hikes Sells me on the Florida Trail

April 7th, 2020

The trail-legend Jupiter Hikes joins the show this week to discuss the Florida Trail, the International Appalachian Trail, and mail drops! I went into this conversation with some pretty negative ideas about the Florida Trail, and Jupiter was able to clear many of those up, and start to nudge me in the right direction. Also, for the first time in Trail Tales history, we talk about hiking in the Great Province of Quebec!
