  1. Trigger and I have been separated and are now reunited. I definitely hike better with him! Vermont has been great training for our upcoming adventures in the Whites and beyond. In this episode, we also chat with a SOBO hiker, a “hidden” hostel owner, and discuss giardia with a young woman who plaited the SOBOer’s hair. Only on the Appalachian Trail!

  2. Vermont has provided us with mud, mozzies, and views from the top of mountains. We’ve been hiking for 20 straight days and I took the decision to take a zero, splitting with Trigger for about four days. We’ll get back together on Sunday. Vermont has warmed us up for the adventures in New Hampshire and Maine, so I’m sure I’ll one day be grateful for these extra climbs!!

  3. We’ve had visitors this week. One had a shirt for me while Trigger’s boys drove 16 hours to hike seven miles with us. The heat in New England has been stifling and certainly took a toll on us. However, the further north we go, the cooler the temperatures should be. No more immediate visitors so we have an opportunity to put in more good miles in the coming days.

  5. Still pushing on and now into Massachusetts and past 1550 miles. We’re managing our reduced mileage and taking several breaks during the day is helping us conserve our energy. I’ve now lost about 35 lbs while Trigger has dropped over 40 lbs. The post Episode #167 – Appalachian Trail (Days 123 to 126) appeared first on Mighty Blue on The Appalachian Trail.

  6. In this episode, Jonathan and Mark chat with another hiking dad, Tim Watson, who spends his time documenting his experiences hiking and cycling on YouTube when he’s not spending time with his family. After some friendly banter about not using an underquilt (spoiler alert), there is some interesting discussion about Tim’s gear and then his Ramen Bomb. Finally, everyone finishes up with a quick comment about their hygiene kits. After the interview with Tim, Jonathan and Mark chat about powering their gadgets on the trail, and we finish up the podcast with Spiguyver answering a couple of great questions on the “Hanging Out” segment.

  7. Tired of sacrificing comfort for a low base weight? So is Doug Johnson, a longtime BPL author on a multi-year quest to discover a luxurious-but-ultralight backcountry experience. Doug has treated himself (and his family) to extensive cook systems, thick sleeping pads, and cozy hammocks - now he’s turned his expert eye to the world of ultralight backcountry seating. It’s a fascinating gear category, and one with wildly different approaches to solving what appears to be a simple problem - how to sit comfortably at the end of a long day. Andrew and Doug get things started by setting some parameters - no sit pads allowed in this podcast (or stools, or hammocks, or...well...just give it a listen, you’ll catch on). Next, they jump into a few of the categories covered by Doug’s extensive Gear Guide: Inflatable Seat Kits, On-Ground Pole Supported Seats, Suspended Seats, and Frame Seats (among others). Doug touches briefly on the design elements and performance considerations of each category, then elaborates on some of his favorites seats in each category. He finishes by choosing his two favorite seats before taking a brief sidetrack into the hammock world. As they wrap up, Andrew challenges Doug to make a believer out of any die-hard gram counters that might be listening.

  8. With two-thirds of the trail under our feet, the humidity and heat has cranked up to shorten our days. We still aim to finish in the last week of August, but we can see a tougher profile ahead. These past few days have been impacted by, particularly, the humidity and we’ve come to terms that those 20-milers are a thing of the past. That said, we’ve been blessed by friends, new and old.

  9. I had a brief day of doubt this week as my body appeared to rebel about the miles I was doing. I soon got over it but even wondered if Lyme Disease was a possibility. I also got the great chance to meet face to face with our very own Dr Lynne, as well as her husband, Bob, and a listener, Eric Gross Jr. Rain slowed us a little last week but the weather is looking good for the coming days.

  11. We’ve been incredibly lucky with our management of rain so far but, as with all things, this, too, shall end. The rain is upon us and making the New York rocks slicker and far more dangerous. We have a quandary, in that there are blue-blazes to avoid the rocks but we want to stick with the white blazes as long as we possibly can. This purist streak may well be tested soon.

  12. Vi hopper inn på 90-tallet. Børge Ousland lykkes med sin kryssing av Antarktis, Rune og Torry krysser polhavet, Rolf og Eiriks episke overnatting og kryssing, Rune Gjeldnes elleville kryssing av Antarktis. De første norske kommersielle polturene kommer i gang og nordmenn med Christian Eide i spissen begynner for alvor å sette opp farten på Antarktis-ekspedisjonene. Bonusmateriale: Vi blir med Lars på ufrivillig svømmetur i polhavet og får høre om turen hvor han rett og slett eksploderer. Vi drar oss helt fram til jubileumssesongen 2011/2012 og anser med det at vår triologi om Antarktis er fullendt for denne gang. View the full article
  13. Old friends reunited and new friends met. The trail continues to provide us with serendipitous moments that are the real Trail Magic. Sharing the trail with Trigger, Dodger Dog, Cushy, and a new friend, Barb, has been a delight. I’m fulfilling my desire to watch the last round of each of the Major Golf Championships and zeroing for that purpose today. We’ll be back at it tomorrow. Here we come New York.

  14. Pennsylvania has claimed another couple of victims; Trigger and I are VERY glad that it is over. Our feet and shoes have suffered from the sharpness of the rocks and, now that we have entered New Jersey, we were hoping that the rocks were going to improve. Our verdict so far; better but still rocky. The post Episode #162 – Appalachian Trail (Days 106 to 108) appeared first on Mighty Blue on The Appalachian Trail. View the full article
