The Trail Show #59: The Inca Trail

Show #59 – 5 Years in da Bag! On this month´s Trail Show, we exhume the late Paul “Mags” Magnanti from the dead to guest with us and bring us all the news that’s fit to be heard, D-Low talks mushroom death suits and the benefits of sleeping on 2x4s, Executive Director of the Idaho Trail Association Jeff Halligan talks trail work and crosscut saws in the Gem State, Speshul 41 sends us a missive from inside a vacuum at the bottom of a lake, POD discusses the finer points of Andean train rides and hiking in jeans, D-Low talks Inca Trail and other Inca Trails during Trail O’ da Month, “Out of Order” sends us dispatches from Portuguese highways, Mags pays homage to Charlie and discusses the book “On the Trail” by Silas Chamberlain. Thanx and praize rains down on our generous monthly Trail Show donors, we unpack another large mailbag and Mags goes dirtbag during Gear Review.

And as always … Beer O’ Da Month (3 beers from 3 breweries c/o Trail Show Nation), Trail News, Trail O’ Da Month (Inca Trail), and Ask-A-Hiker with D-Low & Out of Order.
