Episode 55: Shaving Food Weight on the Appalachian Trail

On this episode we explore how to use your body to save weight in packing your food for the first 100 miles of your Appalachian Trail thru-hike. Then we bust the myth on cold soaking your food, reviewing what value it may or may not provide. Does “Cold Soaking” really save weight?

What we talk about:

  • Your body is a piece of gear, don’t forget that
  • How many calories does it take to burn a pound?
  • Good Fat…is good
  • Peanut Butter and Jelly is really good for you
  • Cold Soaking weight VS Scott’s stove weight

Episode 54: You’re Gonna Get Wet

On this episode we discuss how to choose rain gear for your next hike, and define what “waterproof” really means. We also share two kinds of ratings that you should look for and different rain gear fabrics that will help you determine what to buy for your outdoor adventure. What exactly to look for depending on where you will be going and what key rating is important.

What we talk about:

  • Is Waterproof a reality or a dream?
  • Welded Seam VS Stitched Seam
  • Is Gortex the best?
  • Fisherman know the best rain jackets, but boy do they sweat
  • Shawshank Redemption and Andy Defrane

Episode 45: Is Less Really More?

On this Episode, we compare 2 trends growing in popularity = lightweight backpacking and minimalist living – AND do the two truly parallel each other. So, we ask – is less really more? In recent years the nomadic life has become a socially appealing trend and for some, a generally acceptable lifestyle to explore.

As lightweight backpackers we HAD to ask ourselves are we lightweight living? And we think the answer is YEAH, we are. Though it wasn’t always that way for us.

What we discuss on this Podcast:

  • Does Life Parallel the trail?
  • How does lightweight backpacking equate to a lightweight lifestyle?
  • Trusting the Trail is always a new experience
  • Getting rid of a 1974 ash tray.

Episode 12: Ode to Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains

In this 12th episode we share our feelings, thoughts, and prayers to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and Gatlinburg, TN.

The wildfires that swept through Gatlinburg, TN on Monday will go down in the history books for sure. There was devastating loss, and brought tears to so many people that have visited the Park, and the neighboring town of Gatlinburg, and Pigon Forge.

As it seems so devastating, there is also hope that our hiking community will remember what has been given so freely to them for years. The true beauty of the GSMNP, the Rangers, and the town’s people of Gatlinburg.  In this podcast we share how to help and where to bring clothes and supplies to those who have been displaced out of their  homes.
