Backpacker Radio Episode #11: Thru-Hiking Nutrition with Katie Gerber and the Best Sleeping Bags for Thru-Hiking

Today’s episode is all about how to eat right on and off trail.  We are joined by thru-hiker and soon-to-be certified holistic nutritionist, Katie “Salty” Gerber, to go way down the rabbit hole about how hikers can improve their on-trail nutrition game.  We also touch upon some of the best sleeping bags and quilts for thru-hiking, learn a bit about the Wind River High Route, and are unexpectedly joined by a homeless person.

    I just took the Sierra Designs Cloud 20 out into Colorado and was extremely comfy and below freezing temps. It’s a great hybrid between quilt and mummy bag due to its design and at $300 I would take it over the Igneo any day
