Backpacker Radio Community Show #1: Advice to Prospective Thru-Hikers
Today’s show is a special edition, an experiment, and a community-sourced show, all rolled into one giant tortilla, hiker trash style. A few months ago, I put a call out to our bloggers and vloggers to share their top tips for someone who’s about to embark on a thru-hike. Tis the season.
As you will see, this advice runs the gamut, and can often even be contradictory to one another. The reason for this is simple, there is no one single approach to successfully thru-hiking. That said, I do think there’s tremendous value in listening to the insight of those who’ve walked the walk, as you can pick and choose what resonated with you, test different approaches, keep what works, and discard the rest.
