#22 | IBTAT on Vlogging a Thru-Hike, The Art Loeb Trail, and Avoiding Trail Burnout

March 25th, 2019

The one and only, IBTAT joins the show this week to chat all things Appalachian Trail, Art Loeb Trail, and Pacific Crest Trail. We talk about why his vlog was so successful, his experience thru-hiking the Art Loeb Trail in North Carolina, and of course, his upcoming plans to thru-hike the PCT! Those topics are only the tip of the iceberg, IBTAT and I really jumped all over the place with this one.  

Check out IBTAT's YouTube Channel to watch him head North on the PCT this year: https://www.youtube.com/user/htfu54

#19 | Ranking The States on the Appalachian Trail with Mikey “Mullet” Brenkus

March 4th, 2019

This week thru-hiker Mikey Brenkus, our guest all the way back from episode four, joins the show to talk about his ranking of the states on the Appalachian Trail. We go through our ranks one-by-one, and discuss why we ranked each state the way we did. Our standard for the rankings was very loose, arbitrarily factoring in difficulty, scenery, and our experiences in each state. Is Pennsylvania really as bad as people say it is? Find out based on our ranks.
