#7 | A Bloody Reminder to Keep Your Head Up While Hiking, AWOL vs Guthooks Vs The Companion, and a Speedy Thru-Hike with Matthew Park


Matthew "Breezy" Park recently completed an under 4 month thru hike of the Appalachian Trail. He certainly set out on a mission right from day one, and we talk all about how he was able to push himself to complete the trail in such a short time. We also cover the differences between the most popular guidebooks that Appalachian Trail thru-hikers carry with them, and the popular navigation app "Guthooks." At the end of the episode, we get into a scary story that should serve as a reminder to all hikers: KEEP YOUR HEAD UP WHEN GOING UPHILL! Hope you enjoy!
