    I love this podcast, it scratches that itch that Sound of the Trail used to. Makes the wait for my PCT thru hike next year more bearable. I’ll toss a few bucks your way on patreon

    Good luck to all you hikers. Make this an experience never to forget. When in Troutdale be sure to stop by and have a cup of Turkish coffee on the house – staying or not.
