#112 | Frozen from Outdoor Adventures on the Foothills Trail, Appalachian Trail, and More!

April 27th, 2021

Thru Hiker and backpacking YouTuber Frozen joins the show, for the second time! This time we discuss his hike of the Foothills Trail (and lets be honest, mine as well), some of the random hikes in the PA area that he has done, and much more! Frozen's channel is a favorite of mine, I really appreciate his attitude and the style of his content and it was a pleasure to have him back on the show a second time.

Taylor the Nahamsha Hiker is about to set out on her Appalachian Trail thru hike! After getting off the Appalachian Trail last year, Taylor is going to be back at it again this year, leaving in just a few days. We talk about what she is excited for, what she is nervous for, and I find a few chances to reminisce about my Appalachian Trail thru hike as well.

#97 | When a NOBO and SOBO pass each other on the Appalachian Trail with Rose “Comics” Turner

December 1st, 2020

Rose "Comics" Turner joins the show this week to talk all about the Appalachian Trail and creating comics on it! That's right, Comics made creating art an integral part of her Appalachian Trail thru hiking experience. Also, since she hiked a good portion of the trail SOBO in 2018, we spend some time trying to figure out when we passed each other (since I went NOBO that same year).

#92 | A 2020 Appalachian Trail thru hiker answers TOUGH questions about Covid with Rune Ravn

October 20th, 2020

It's no secret that thru hiking in 2020 is a very controversial topic. I usually try to stay out of controversial issues, but due to a number of listeners who reached out to me (and my own curiosity) I finally cracked... I present to you, and interview with Rune Ravn, a 2020 Appalachian Trail thru hiker. I ask Rune to tell his story, and ask him a number of tough questions about covid and the ethics of hiking during the pandemic. I believe it's very important to hear all sides of the story, so I hope you will listen with an open mind. Check out his YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/JustAboveU

#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!

#69 | How Covid-19 Affects Thru-Hiking with Julia Sheehan

March 24th, 2020

Unfortunately, due to the rapidly unfolding COVID-19 situation, it is likely that Julia "Rocket" Sheehan will have to post-pone her 2020 PCT thru hike. In this episode, we talk about her updated plans, and her recommendation as a thru hiker and nurse for those that are currently on a thru hike or will be leaving shortly. During the later part of the episode, we talk about some more light-hearted subjects and she even gets the chance to tell TWO stories to close everything out. I'm so grateful that Julia was willing to come on Trail Tales twice within such a short time period, and I really hope that people take her recommendations seriously.
