podcastEpisode 9 – Trail Days: On Location


Recommended Posts

TDlogo-smFor this episode, Mark and Jonathan travel to Trail Days in Damascus, VA to interview some long-distance hikers who have found that hanging from the trees lets them get the rest they need to make their miles. They also interview some of the hammock camping vendors who attended the Trail Days festivals to show their new products and let folks interact with their product.

Also in this episode, we discuss safety for hammock campers, and camping in general. They touch on a recent incident in which a young hammocker was killed by an improper hang, and discuss some general ideas for safely camping and being prepared for the worst.
