Backpacker Radio Episode 15: Jennifer Pharr Davis, The Best Thru-Hiking Backpacks, and Clothes on the PCT
In today’s edition of Backpacker Radio, Badger and Chaunce are joined by trail legend, the former supported Appalachian Trail FKT record holder, author, and National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, Jennifer Pharr Davis. We go way down the rabbit hole about the subjects discussed in her new book, The Pursuit for Endurance. We also find out which is more painful between setting and FKT and bearing a child, what her current go-to gear is, and what goes into a successful relationship. We then talk about some of the best backpacks for thru-hikers, what our go-to clothing system was for the Pacific Crest Trail, and how you can hang out with Badger and Chaunce in Denver on July 24th.
