#14 | How to Hike In The Desert, Navigate the Pacific Crest Trail Permit System, and Much More with Russell Corfman

January 28th, 2019

Russell Corfman joins Trail Tales for episode 14, woo! Russell thru-hiked the Pacific Crest Trail in 2018, making him the show's first (but certainly not last) PCT guest. He answer's many of my questions about hiking the PCT, including how the permit system works, how to not die when hiking the desert, and what gear he picked up when he entered the Sierra's. Check out his You-tube channel, Russell in the Bush!

#13 | Do Thru Hikers Get Stung on the Appalachian Trail? Jessica Pu Shares Insight on her AT Experience

January 21st, 2019

Jessica Pu joins Trail Tales! She is the fiance of episode 8's guest, Baker Bokorney, and they both successfully completed a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail in the summer of 2018. Jessica and I jump around to a few different topics related to our thru-hikes;  if thru-hikers ever get stung by bees (the answer is yes), which section nearly made Jessica quit, and some advice for couples who wish to attempt a thru-hike together in the future.

#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.
