Stories From The Trail Ep 12 – AT Trail Days with Zach and Hiking Viking

Worlds Collide!

This year for Trail Days, Voldemort and I traveled to Damascus, a much longer trip for her! and recorded a joint episode with Zach from Backpacker Radio. (And duh, this site…) After a hard day of kissing hands and shaking babies, Zach pried himself from his booth and ate barbecue with us and Jabba (aka “The Real Hiking Viking”). After getting us sufficiently liquored up, he lured the three of us back to his hotel room, fired up the mics and late tape roll. What you’re about to hear are the salvageable parts from that evening:

  • How we all met
  • What Trail Days really is
  • Jabba’s exciting news (Hint: It’s an FKT attempt!)
  • Whether being in the military has any impact on thru hiking success
  • Something about whiskey
  • This part’s off the record
  • and more!

As always, you can enjoy the show right here, OR find us at any of the following popular locations:
