Backpacker Radio #46: Anish Is Back(!), the Impact of Vloggers on the Trail Community, and Cinnamon Court 2.0
In today’s episode of Backpacker Radio, presented by The Trek, I sit down to chat with record holder, trail legend, author, and Backpacker Radio repeat offender, Heather “Anish” Anderson. We go into depth on her new book, Thirst, which chronicles her 2013 Fastest Known Time on the Pacific Crest Trail, including her lowest moments from the hike, mountain lion encounters, and dealing with extreme heat in the Southern California desert. Also, per your request from our last chat, we talk gear. We have a Trek propaganda featuring the impact of vloggers in thru-hiking, a brand new Cinnamon Court, and a mailbag.
