Pox & Puss Episode #66 – Trail Days 2016 Samsquatch

This is a warts-and-all episode.
People have been asking us to just release the 2016 Trail Days as-is…so here’s part one of six (or seven?) with minimal editing.

Every year we set up in front of MoJoe’s Trailside Café we seem to interview at least one non-American. 2016 was no exception: Samsquatch is from the U.K.
His girlfriend, Jade, didn’t want to talk.
So she did what any good thru-hiker would do…she went to get some food.

Since it comes up in the episode, 2016 was the year that Puss became violently ill and suddenly got sick inside of her car on the way to Trail Days. She had taken photos of the aftermath and shared them with the Thru-Hikers.

Through some friends, Puss met Samsquatch and his “Trail Family” the night before, so we were expecting him to come talk with us. He did not disappoint.

Discussed in this episode:
– Another easy Visa story.
– Football and Rugby queue-ing
– PEcan vs. PeCAN
– Samsquatch has to be the first person to ever call Gatlinburg “the greatest place ever”
– Huge American portions!
– Sweet Tea and Grits
– Someone gets locked inside a Dollar General bathroom
– A story about Too Loud makes an appearance
– These nerds play Dungeons & Dragons on the Appalachian Trail
