#91 | SUCCESSFULLY Thru Hiking the Northville Placid Trail… but it wasn’t easy

October 13th, 2020

Flossy and I successfully completed the Northville Placid Trail in the Adirondacks. This was my second attempt at thru hiking this trail so I finally got my redemption. However... it wasn't easy. It was the hardest hike that we have attempted since the Appalachian Trail in 2018. Tune in to find out what happened. Go watch the video of our hike: https://youtu.be/ccrxEfSuYXg

#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.

Please consider supporting my 46Climbs team to raise money for suicide prevention.

#70 | ALL ABOUT THE ADIRONDACKS with James Appleton of the 46 of 46 Podcast

March 31st, 2020

It's been too long since I've talked about the Adirondacks on this show, and James Appleton was the perfect guest to do so with. We talk about the Adirondack 46, James's podcast "The 46 of 46 Podcast", and the Lake Placid 9er challenge - a peak bagging challenge that is created and managed by James himself! Even if you're not an Adirondack hiker, this episode should get you fired up to finally hit the trail once the social distancing measures are done.

#50 | The Interviewer Gets Interviewed For the Trail Tales 50th Episode Special

October 29th, 2019

Holy....wow. Fifty Episodes! To celebrate, my good friend and frequent guest of the show Baker Bokorney is back, but this time he is the interviewer. Baker thought it would be fun to reverse the roles and take some of the work off my plate this week, so I got to spend an hour answer questions about myself, my hiking history, and Trail Tales itself. I even get to share a never-before-told story at the end of the episode.

Thank you to everyone who has listened to this show for the past 50 episodes. I constantly have people reaching out and showing their support, and I am humbled and grateful for where the show is at right now.

#49 | White Mountains Redlining; Beyond the White Mountain 4000 Footers with Redline Guiding’s Mike Cherim

October 22nd, 2019

Redline Guiding's owner and founder Mike Cherim joins the show this week to talk all about the White Mountains of New Hampshire! Mike is an experienced hiker who has completed many notable accomplishments. From thru-hiking the Long Trail to Redlining the White Mountains, Mike has many miles under his belt, and we had plenty to talk about. We discussed what White Mountain Redlining is, how there is much more to the White Mountains than just the 4000-footers, and how he was able to take his passion of hiking and turn it into a successful business by starting Redline Guiding. Be sure to check out their website, Facebook, and Instagram.

#48 | A Single Year Grid of the South Beyond 6000; Peak-Bagging with Caet Cash

October 15th, 2019

Thru-hiker and peak-bagger Caet Cash has completed the Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, Adirondack 46, and much much more. She joins the show this week to discuss her current hiking project; tackling the South Beyond 6000 Single Year Grid. If successful, Caet will be the first hiker in history to have completed the South Beyond 6000 in a Single Year Grid. We talk all about what inspired this crazy project, how she lives the 'van life' in order to make the hiking logistics easier, and a comparison between thru-hiking and peak-bagging. The South Beyond 6000 is not as popular as famous lists like the White Mountain 4000-footers or the Adirondack 46, so hopefully this episode will inspire some folks to get outside in the Southeast!

#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!

#45 | Thru-Hiking the Northville Placid Trail in the Adirondacks with Jacob Ireland

September 24th, 2019

Thru-Hiking the Northville Placid Trail in the Adirondacks with Jacob Ireland

Jacob Ireland recently completed a thru-hike of the Northville Placid Trail in the Adirondacks, and was kind enough to reflect on his experience with me this week. I also attempted the Northville Placid Trail a few years ago, and through that experience I discovered how tough of a trail the NPT really is. Though Jacob certainly does not regret his experience on the Northville Placid Trail, he expressed his mixed feelings about it on this episode. We talk about why he felt a bit underwhelmed by the trail, and also cover the positive aspects of the Northville Placid Trail (lakes, lakes, and more lakes)! It's always a treat to talk about the Adirondacks.
