#35 | Two Appalachian Trail Thru-Hikers Talk About Their Backpacking and Hiking Trail Grievances

July 10th, 2019

Baker Bokorney is back for round 3! Baker is an experienced thru-hiker, having hiked the Appalachian Trail, Florida Trail, and half the Arizona Trail in 2018. We decided to have some fun with this episode, and go over our hiking and backpacking grievances. Towards the end, Baker gets into some grievances specific to Trail Tales (in addition to being the most frequent guest, he is also a listener of the show), and I finally give him a chance to share a trail story! I forgot BOTH times we spoke before. Sorry Baker. Also congrats on the wedding when you read this.

#34 | A Triple Crowner on the Continental Divide Trail and More with Dave Moore

July 2nd, 2019

Growing up within reach of the White Mountains, Dave Moore was exposed to the world of hiking and backpacking from a young age, and eventually went on to complete the Appalachian Trail, the Pacific Crest Trail, and the Continental Divide Trail! But not only is he a Triple Crowner, he has hiked many other smaller trails as well! For this episode, we focus mostly on the Continental Divide Trail (CDT) as I pick Dave's brain about some of the challenges that thru-hikers face on the CDT that they may not encounter on the PCT or the AT.

#33 | Evacuated by a Helicopter on the Great Divide Trail with Jake Pickering

June 25th, 2019

Jake Pickering thru-hiked the Pacific Crest Trail in 2016, and headed back into the woods again in 2018. The second time around he thru-hiked the Great Divide Trail in Western Canada, which is a relatively unknown trail compared to more popular hikes like the Appalachian Trail and PCT. In this episode we learn about how a Wikipedia article exposed him to the world of long-distance hiking, and all about the logistics of hiking the Great Divide Trail. Make sure you stay tuned until the end of the episode to hear his crazy story about being evacuated from the GDT by helicopter, a good reminder for everyone to renew their SPOT subscriptions!

#32 | The Most Badass Hiking Dog, the Cohos Trail, and Winter Hiking with Alton Eckel

June 11th, 2019

Alton Eckel and her dog Cole have been ripping miles in the White Mountains and elsewhere for nearly 10 years now. We jump all over the place in this week's episode, talking about her thru-hike of the Cohos Trail in New Hampshire, how amazing of a hiking partner her dog Cole is, and how the pair were the first to complete the Northeast Ultra 8. That is just the tip of the iceberg however; tune in to hear about everything else we discussed!

June 4th, 2019

Shawn Crawford, known as Sintax77 on YouTube, began sharing his backpacking and hiking adventures with the world in 2011, and hasn't looked back since.

We jump around a ton in this episode, covering topics such as the White Mountains (and how they shape up against the Adirondacks), winter hiking/camping, and how Shawn's philosophy has changed over the years concerning ultralight backpacking.
