In this episode Scott and Ariane talk to Casey Rheaume who’s backpacking adventure started out with just some small steps on the trail. Casey shares how she started with just a desire to learn a little about the outdoors and to keep pushing herself a little at a time. Car camping was first, then some Snowshoeing, then it was a Backpacking Adventure of a lifetime.

As a first time backpacker, Casey also explains how important it was to go with people who could help her learn the right way, but also let’s her make mistakes also.

Scott and Ariane discuss how important it is to  let new backpackers learn from others at the same time.

Highlights:

The Buckland Trail don’t play

Snowshoeing is hard

Inner Ear Infection makes sleeping in a cave difficult

Casey gives Scott a “List”. (Scott feels pressure)
