Backpacker Radio

Jan 21, 2020

We are joined by legendary PCT trail angel, Donna, L-Rod Saufley of Hiker Heaven.  Donna comes by her trail name, L-Rod, short for lightning rod, very honestly. She's exceptionally outspoken, a ball of energy, and has a deep passion for the Pacific Crest Trail and its community.  We hear all about her time serving as a trail angel to PCT hikers for more than two decades.  This conversation is fun, engaging, educational, and we dip our toe into some controversial subjects.  

Chaunce and I wrap-up the show with an update on the latest from Hiker Heaven, how you can get a free trip to the moon in a likely very prostitute-y way, a triple crown of stereotypes you meet on trail, and we are blessed with another listener poop story.
