Backpacker Radio #153 | AT Trail Days 2022: Thru-Hiker Interviews Part 2
In today’s episode of Backpacker Radio presented by The Trek, brought to you by goodr, we are joined by more AT Hiker Trash! This is volume II of our thru-hiker interviews from AT Trail Days 2022. This one concludes with a trail name origin story that is borderline too insane to believe. We wrap the show with some very sad news of a hiker’s tragic fall from McAfee Knob, a Triple Crown of Passive Aggressive Statements Used in Work Emails, and how Badger’s TRT plans almost fell through once again, as per tradition.
