Backpacker Radio Episode #14: Data, Chaunce Gets Covered in Poo, and the LWCF
Maybe don’t listen to this podcast during your lunch because Chaunce has an all-timer poop story. Also on episode 14 of Backpacker Radio, the Cinnamon Connection is joined by 2016 Appalachian Trail thru-hiker and 2017 Pacific Crest Trail thru-hiker John “Data” Harvey. Data discusses the differences between hiking SOBO and NOBO on the two trails, how his love for thru-hiking has transitioned into ultra-running, and what it’s like to hike during a drought and a record-high snow year. We chat about the importance of the Land and Water Conservation Fund to the Appalachian Trail (an article written by episode 8 guest, Laura “Hey Girl” Johnston). Lastly, we celebrate our 100,000th download by challenging our guest to a good old fashioned game of “truth or dare, but not dare” aka keep it a’hundid.
Topics discussed include:
- Silicone wedding rings so you keep all your digits
- Data’s Instagram
- Bonus Episode 2
- MLD Duomid
- Big Agnes Fly Creek UL2
- HMG Windrider 2400
- REI Quarter Dome 1
- Enlightened Equipment Quilt
- Nolan’s 14
- Land and Water Conservation Fund and it’s impact on the AT by Hey Girl
- Meat Eater Podcast Ep 116 with Senator Heinreich
