#4 | Bad Diets, Yellow-Blazing, and Fundraising on a Thru-Hike with Appalachian Trail Hiker Mikey Brenkus

November 12th, 2018

On the fourth episode of Trail Tales, I talk with Mikey Brenkus, who nearly completed the entire Appalachian Trail this past summer. We talk about how his bad diet contributed to him not being able to complete the trail, the controversial subject of yellow-blazing, and how he raised over 3000 dollars for a friend who was suffering from ALS.

#3 | Bear Charges, Brotherhood, and Injury Recovery on the Appalachian Trail with Mitchell Larby

November 5th, 2018

On this episode of Trail Tales, I talk with Mitchell "Flossy" Larby about his experience completing the Appalachian Trail this past summer. He recalls the time he was bluff charged by a mama bear and her cubs, the bonds that form between thru-hikers as they move up the trail together, and how an injury almost took him off the trail for good in Damascus Virginia.

#2 | All Things Long Trail with Taylor Norton

November 5th, 2018

On the second episode of Trail Tales, I talk with Vermont Long Trail thru-hiker Taylor Norton. Taylor hiked the 273 mile trail this past summer. We chat about some of our favorite sections on the trail (believe it or not, I've done the LT twice), how Taylor was able to complete the trail in an aggressive 17 days, and some of the lessons Taylor learned from AT thru-hikers early on in his journey.

#1 | Sketchy Situations, Mental Challenges, and Highlights of the Appalachian Trail with Cameron Smyk

November 5th, 2018

In the inaugural episode of Trail Tales, I talk with my good friend and fellow Appalachian Trail thru-hiker Cameron Smyk. We discuss everything from some of his sketchy hitch-hikes into town, to the mental endurance necessary to complete a 2200 mile trek. To top it off, we get into some of Cameron's gear, and why he plans on bringing a different set up on his next thru-hike.
