#111 | How do Thru Hiking Movies compare to Reality? With Rose Turner

April 20th, 2021

In this episode, Trail Tales editor and badass hiker Rose "Comics" Turner is back on the show, this time to discuss thru-hiking movies! We talk about the movies "A Walk in the Woods", "Wild", and a few more. I have not seen any of these movies, but Rose has, and I make some assumptions about them as we compare the way they portray thru hiking to the reality of thru hiking.

February 2nd, 2021

Trevor Laher passed away while attempting a thru hike of the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) in March of 2020. Despite the tragic circumstances, his father Doug Laher has made it his mission to educate other hikers of the PCT and beyond about how the accident could have been prevented. Doug joins me in this episode to talk about Trevor's legacy, the accident, and what we can all learn from it.

#78 | A Pacific Crest Trail Thru Hiker Shares it All with Ryan Stratton

June 16th, 2020

Ryan Stratton hiked the PCT in 2018 and also happens to be a member of the same fraternity as me. In this episode I ask him a bunch of questions about West Coast thru hiking that make me nervous to venture out there... most of you probably know what half those things already are at this point. Also, sorry I was so tired for this one.

#66 | Pushing the Limits of Late Start Dates on the Appalachian Trail with Ryan Fox

February 25th, 2020

Ryan Fox thru hiked the Appalachian Trail SOBO starting in August 2018 - which is a very unique time to start! He followed that up by crushing a good portion of the PCT the following year, and is currently planning on competing in the 2020 Lake Placid Ironman Triathlon. This dude does it all! We talk about how his Appalachian Trail start date affected his hike, the similarities and differences between the hiking community and the triathlon community, and at the end he tells a crazy story about camping with some homeless folks on the PCT.

#53 | IBTAT on Thru-Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail

November 19th, 2019

Having just finished thru hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, IBTAT joins the show a second time to talk all things PCT. We talk about the crazy winter weather he had to deal with at the end of his thru hike, how finishing the Pacific Crest Trail compared to finishing the Appalachian Trail, and much more. Completing back-to-back thru hikes is an incredible feat; the fact that IBTAT made two cross country walks in two years blows my mind. Tune in to hear about the Pacific Crest Trail, thru hiking, and more!
