#18 | Being Stalked by a Mountain Lion, Vlogging, and the Post PCT Thru-Hike Adjustment with The Whimsical Woman, Jennifer Mabus

February 25th, 2019

The one and only Jennifer Mabus, also known as The Whimsical Woman joins the show to talk about her thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail. Seemingly on a whim, she set out to make the walk from Mexico to Canada in 2018. We talk about why her vlog was so successful, the post-trail adjustment period that we both went through after our hikes, and the craziness that ensued when she was stalked by a mountain lion.

#17 | What Does Hiker Trash Mean? Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail and Skateboarding the Florida Trail with Alex Fogt

February 18th, 2019

Alex Fogt had a crazy 2018, thru-hiking not only the Pacific Crest Trail, but the Florida Trail as well. We talk about how this skate-rat brought a board with him on his Florida Trail thru-hike and skated hundreds of the paved miles on the FLT. We also talk about his best and worst experiences on both trails, and attempt to define what the popular term "hiker trash" actually means.

#16 | A Mountain Lion Encounter in Maine, Being a Ridgerunner on the Appalachian Trail, and Hiking Photography with Aaron Ibey

February 12th, 2019

This week I'm joined by Aaron Ibey, who is a professional photographer and thru-hiker, having hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2016. He worked for the Appalachian Mountain Club as a ridgerunner in 2018, and talks all about what that job entails, as well as some tips for taking better hiking photos on your smartphone. He ends the episode by telling an insane story from his 2016 thru-hike, where he encountered a mountain lion in the Hundred Mile Wilderness of Maine. Trail Tales has had plenty of bear stories, but never a mountain lion story!

Go check out Aaron's photography on Instagram (@ibeyprofin) and consider buying one of his prints online at https://aaronibey.pixieset.com/theprintcollection/

#15 | Hiking The 46 Adirondack High Peaks In One Week for Suicide Prevention with Kolby Ziemendorf

February 4th, 2019

On a bit of a departure from normal episodes, trail runner and 46 Climbs co-founder Kolby Ziemendorf joins the program this week! We talk about his attempt to hike all 46 of the Adirondack High Peaks in one week to raise money for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Turns out, a trouble-some bear may or may not have thrown a wrench into those plans. We also chat about how that hike turned 46 Climbs into a national movement, and some of the nuances between trail running and normal hiking.
