Backpacker Radio #44 | Renee “She-ra” Patrick on Her Triple Crown, Establishing the Oregon Desert Trail, and Her Potent Bearomones
Renee Patrick, known on trail as She-ra is a triple crowner, designer, and all-around Renaissance Woman. In addition to hiking pretty much every trail in the United States and some abroad, she’s also served in the Peace Corps, interned at the Smithsonian, and presently serves as the coordinator at the Oregon Desert Trail. She shares stories of being caught in a military coup in Africa, having her pack stolen by a bear, being bitten by a brown recluse on the Appalachian Trail, and building and selling a merchandise company. Of course we’ve got some Trek Propaganda as well as a very poopy edition of would you rather.
