Backpacker Radio

Jun 4, 2018

When backpacking through the backcountry for months on end, there's one thing that can be relied upon: expect the unexpected.  Today's episode focuses in on exactly that- the biggest surprises from the trail.  Specifically, what caught our hikers most off guard?  

This is the 2nd part of this episode where we check in with our PCT and CDT hikers. We hear from our AT hikers in the previous episode.

Today we hear from:

  • Kate Emmons (PCT)
  • Lukas Isaacson (PCT)
  • Madeline Newel (PCT)
  • Miles to Go (PCT)
  • Sarah Mowery (PCT)
  • Rabbit (CDT)
