Backpackinglight -TRIP SHORT: The Tahoe Rim Trail


Recommended Posts

When Backpacking Light Gear Editor and Podcast Producer Andrew Marshall set out on a fast thru-hike of the Tahoe Rim Trail, he knew he’d be contending with Sierra snow pack that was several hundred percent above average. The story of that trip - trail conditions, lessons learned, and gear tested - is the subject of this BPL TRIP SHORT. 

After a brief introduction, Ryan and Andrew spend some time discussing the Tahoe Rim Trail and conditions in the Eastern Sierra. Among other things, the guys talk about Andrew’s route finding, food strategies, training, and how to walk on sun cups (hint - meditate).  

In the second half of the pod Ryan and Andrew talk about the gear - what Andrew loved, what he didn’t, and what he wished he’d left behind. They wrap it up with a lament on the state of footwear in the ultra-light world.
