Video Updates from the Trail: Recapping the Week of 4/9/22
Another week, another list of our favourite videos from the trail! This week, we’ve been keeping up with Zack (hiking the Arizona Trail) and Ryan (training for the Pacific Crest Trail). We also get to meet Honey, who is hiking the Appalachian Trail completely zero waste.
Zack’s 2022 Arizona Trail Thru-Hike: Part 2
In this week’s episode of Zack’s Arizona Trail thru-hike, he brings us along on miles 125 – 258. Zack’s update features a beautiful full moon experience, expansive mountain views, geeking out over caves, and rain. Lots of rain. Safe to say, the past 133 miles have been good to Zack.
Ryan’s 2022 PCT thruhike: goofin and sleuthin (#2)
Ryan takes us along for another beautiful training hike. This time, he hikes with a fully loaded pack, including six litres of water and all the gear he will be carrying while on the Pacific Crest Trail. Not only does Ryan test out his full pack for the first time, he also gives us an update on testing out his new shoes. He’s switching up his classic Altras for a pair of HOKA Speedgoats. Though Ryan takes it easy on this hike, he’s stoked about having another successful training hike under his belt. And one perk? He got tons of compliments on his funky shorts.
Honey’s Zero Waste 2022 AT Thru Hike
In this episode, we meet Honey as she takes on her first few days of the Appalachian Trail. From a wet tent to receiving her first dose of trail magic, Honey shares her early experiences and thoughts with us while on trail. Honey believes she’s figured out her “perfect recipe” for thru-hiking: This includes leaving camp early, enjoying breakfast with a view, stretching, and lots of breaks/naps. She navigates her first few days on trail with excitement and connects with other hikers along the way. She takes us around the campfire, shows off her beautiful cabin in Blood Mountain on her first zero day, and gets us fired up for what’s to come.
Stay tuned for next week’s video updates. Happy hiking, friends!
