#12 | A Calendar Year Triple Crown with The Hiking Prodigy

January 14th, 2019

Tyler Lau, otherwise known as The Hiking Prodigy, is one of only eleven human beings on earth to complete a Calendar Year Triple Crown hike. He hiked the Appalachian Trail, the Pacific Crest Trail, and the Continental Divide Trail, roughly 8,000 miles, all in the year 2018. Join us as we walk through (ha) his entire Triple Crown hike, talking in-depth about the limits you must push your mind to when hiking the length of the United States three times in one year. 

Please consider donating to Tyler's fundraiser 8,000 miles To 8,000 Smiles.

Scott Goldie (trail name Pacman) recently completed an Appalachian Trail thru-hike, and gives an overview of his experience on the ENTIRE trail in episode number 10 of Trail Tales. We also dive into the topics of social media use on a thru-hike, and whether or not the Appalachian Trail is becoming too crowded.

#9 | Four Failed Attempts at the Adirondack’s Northville-Placid Trail, and a Fifth Shot at Success with Tuts from Trekking On

December 17th, 2018

On today's episode I chat with Tuts, a thru-hiker, film-maker, and all-around outdoors man about his fifth, thats right FIFTH shot at thru-hiking the Adirondack's Northville-Placid Trail (spoiler, he crushes it the last time). What makes a relatively short, and nearly completely flat trail so difficult? We cover this and much more in our discussion about Tut's latest film, 'Northville-Placid Trail - If At First'. We also got into why Tut's shares his adventures with the world on Youtube, and even hear the story of how I (as in Kyle) also failed an attempt to thru-hike this infamous trail, due to a very bizarre reason.
