EPISODE 24: BACKCOUNTRY 101-ROOKIE MISTAKES

In Episode 24 of the N2Backpacking podcast series, we satisfy a listener request for a show on backcountry basics. Recorded at a remote campsite on the Chattooga River, I speak with Therm Rider and The Camel about some of our rookie mistakes in the backcountry and smart things that we’ve done since our first ventures in to the wilderness.

“Backcountry 101” is the first installment in this mini-series where we sit around the campfire and discuss the fundamentals of backpacking. In this episode, we talk about the times when we’ve taken too much, hiked too far, or put members of our group in terrain that was way above their skill level. Enjoy the show and have a laugh at our expense. And yes, this is a photo from the hike with “Bob”!

EPISODE 32: BACKCOUNTRY 201 – ADVANCED ROOKIE MISTAKES

In Episode 32, the conversation on Rookie Mistakes continues as we sit fireside on Justus Creek along the Appalachian Trail in North Georgia. In this discussion, Beer Run, PokeyBo, and Therm Rider talk about some classic rookie moves: taking the wrong gear, hiking above your skill level, and taking too much.

“Backcountry 201” is the second installment in this mini-series where we sit around the campfire and discuss the fundamentals of backpacking. In this episode, we go “off trail” a bit – so don’t take the show too seriously. We’ll get back on track in future episodes and hopefully this is worth a few good laughs as you commute to work, crank out some Trail miles, or do what you do when you are not on the Trail.

EPISODE 35: THE MOST INFLUENTIAL HIKERS AND BACKPACKERS OF ALL TIME

In Episode 35, we discuss the most influential hikers and backpackers of all time as we sit by a campfire in North Georgia on an autumn night with coyotes running wild in the background. First, a shout out to the trail conferences, clubs, maintainers, ridge-runners, trail angels, and financial benefactors to Trail – because you are collectively more important than any individual for your contributions. But tonight we review some of the names that came up the most frequently in hiking and backpacking forums when we posted the question to the trail community.

EPISODE 39: HIKING NEWS REVIEW (GRAND CANYON SHOW)

In Episode 39, Therm Rider and I do a live winter show from the Yavapai Lodge at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. After a day hiking on the Arizona and Rim Trails, we kick back a cold one and discuss some of the major hiking news events of 2016.

In the show, Therm Rider and I recap and debate some of the U.S. news events that were heavily publicized in the outdoor community last year – including epic fails with drones, lost lives from selfies, and wildlife issues and encounters. We are paid a visit by two National Park Rangers during the interview, so tune in and find out what goes down in Grand Canyon Village.

EPISODE 40: HIKING NEWS REVIEW (GREAT SMOKIES SHOW)

In Episode 40, The Camel and I continue the discussion on hiking news from 2016 in a show recorded right before our annual Klondike hike on the North Carolina side of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Forewarning, we talk felonies, guns, and politics – subjects that get The Camel particularly fired up.

So listen in, and we’ll brace ourselves for the feedback! ‘Cause we talk arson, kidnapping, self-defense, and about the political leadership of our country. And if that doesn’t make you smile (or cringe), click here for some photos from our Klondike hike and get a look at why we head in to the backcountry in the first place.

EPISODE 42: MOST SIGNIFICANT BACKCOUNTRY GEAR OF ALL TIME?

In Episode 42, we discuss a March 2017 article that appeared in Outside Magazine titled “The 40 Most Significant Tools & Toys Ever Designed”. In honor of the magazine’s 40th anniversary, the editors choose 40 products that “stood out for their sheer inventiveness” and their general impact on the outdoor community.

EPISODE 44: THE GOOD, THE BAD, & THE UGLY

In Episode 44, we delve in to The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly – our best and worst experiences from the Trail. Recorded live in the Black Hills of South Dakota, I sit “lantern-side” in the backcountry with long-time hiking friends BeerRun, The Camel, Therm Rider, and the Weasel. Each signed up to accompany me on a quest to complete 50 hikes in 50 States – which ended this month near the defunct goldmines of Lake Sheridan in the Black Hills National Forest.

EPISODE 47: BACKCOUNTRY 301 – YOUR SCREWED DUDE!

In Episode 47, Beer Run and Therm Rider join me from the mountains surrounding Lake Burton to sit fireside and discuss more rookie mistakes. In this special “Your Screwed Dude” episode we talk about overconfidence, getting your friends lost in the backcountry, inadvertently smuggling banned items on airplanes, editables, dork moves, and backcountry crimes of fashion.

EPISODE 49: HIKING NEWS REVIEW (COLEMAN RIDGE SHOW)

In Episode 49, the Camel, Pixie, and I review a few of the major U.S. hiking news events of 2017. Some of the topics we discuss include nails on trails, backcountry treasures, girls joining the Boy Scouts, and the hardest partiers on the A.T.

EPISODE 54: AWESOME (AND AWESOMELY BAD) HIKING & BACKPACKING MOVIES

In Episode 54, we discuss Backpacker Magazine’s list of 35 Awesome (and Awesomely Bad) Outdoor Movies while sitting fireside on the Chattooga River. In the show, I review the hiking and backpacking movies on Backpacker‘s list with 3Dub, BeerRun, Brownie, The Camel, Napster, The Ox, and Wagonhammer after we sit out a rainstorm on the river. We discuss the movie, the plot, and the major actors of each film. Then after a brief debate, the group gives a thumbs-up or down on the movie. We are sometimes enthusiastic and sometimes not, but frequently have strong opinions on each show – and rarely agree on all the films on the list.
