Backpacker Radio #51: The Andersons of Casa de Luna
In today’s episode of Backpacker Radio presented by The Trek, we are joined by legendary PCT trail angels Joe and Terrie Anderson of Casa de Luna. Much like the PCT itself, this conversation is fun, winding, long, and you’ll still be left wanting more when it’s all over. We talk about how they got into trail angeling, some of their favorite stories over the many decades of their running Casa de Luna, why they’re closing up shop, and much more. We’ve also got some suggestions for staying in shape over the winter, some Trek propaganda, and a mailbag in which we give a conclusive answer to “when is a nero a nero?”
