Episode 18: The Triple Crown


In Episode 18, Troubadour recounts his quest for the Triple Crown:  Thru-hiking The Appalachian Trail (in 1994), The Continental Divide Trail (in 2002), and The Pacific Crest Trail (in 1999).

In the podcast, Troubadour compares the three major U.S. long distance hiking trails and talks about some favorite sections on each.  He also gives a nod to great trail towns, hostels, and trail angels on these three epic trails.

In the early years of the Internet, Troubadour was also a pioneer in the hiking and backpacking community – launching thruhikers.com and pcthiker.com in 1995.  We talk about the websites, about his hiking nearly 10,000 miles in the backcountry, and some great and not so great moments on the trail.
