#120 | My Worst Hiking Injury Ever plus Rose “Comics” Turner spills the beans about being an Appalachian Trail Shuttle Driver

July 20th, 2021

In this two-part episode I start off by talking about the worst hiking injury I've ever experienced, which happened recently while backpacking the Cranberry Lake 50 in the Adirondacks. I talk about what went wrong, what we can do to learn from it... and how much it sucked. Here's a link to the video of my hike: https://youtu.be/ggwHwgPtF7w

In part 2, the wonderful Trail Tales editor and thru hiker Rose "Comics" Turner is back for a conversation about her experience as an Appalachian Trail shuttle driver, as well as some (rare) sketchy characters that have been on the AT this 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

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!
