In today's episode of Backpacker Radio presented by The Trek, we chat with Dr. Alan Carpenter. Dr. Carpenter is the ultimate testament that age is just a number, as his entry into the long distance backpacking world didn't begin until the ripe age of 65. Since then, he's accumulated somewhere in the vicinity of 20,000 miles on foot and another 10,000 miles on his bike. His stories are gold, he's an injection of inspiration extract, and is as nice as could be.
We also share how we would end relationships with our culinary skills, get some horse facts on octopuses, do a triple crown of white elephant gifts, and answer some burning listener questions.
