Episode 9: Crocker Mountains (P1)

In Episode 9, Jim (aka Country Club) and Roger (aka The Camel) talk about our recent hike along the Appalachian Trail near Stratton, Maine. This is the first of a two part series that recaps our October 2012 backpacking trip in New England.

During our three day trip, we battled nasty weather and didn’t see a ray of sunshine as we hiked over North & South Crocker Mountain. The steep, wet terrain and rocky descent to the Crocker Cirque Campsite had us averaging about a mile an hour – which is not uncommon for this section of The Appalachian Trail in New England.

In this interview, Jim & Roger talk about their front and backcountry experiences near Stratton and offer some suggestions for those adventurers that are planning a backpacking venture to the area.
