The Trail Show #64: The ACT

Show #64 – Broadcasting live from a yurt at the 2017 ALDHA-West Gathering!!! On this month´s Trail Show special guest Kristin Gates joins us to talk Greenland’s Arctic Circle Trail, dog mushing and polar bears, Trail Show 5th Chair Liz “Snorkel” Thomas also joins us to talk PNT, road walking and eating on video, Brooks Range Council’s John Gaedeke skypes in to discuss a proposed road in Alaska’s Brooks Range, a listener asks about cathole magicians, POD denies mad pooping, we discuss hiking with non-significant others, Disco puts his head in his hands during tent stake review … again, and we make some podcast/media recommendations (Cascade Hiker Podcast, Routes Podcast, ALDHA-West Gazette, Explorers Club). We bow down to our magnanimous monthly Trail Show donors, peak in the mailbag and throw our Ask-A-Hiker segment to Snorkel after a lengthy legal battle.

And as always … Beer O’ Da Month (courtesy of ALDHA-West), Trail News with P.O.D., Trail O’ da Month (Arctic Circle Trail), and Ask-A-Hiker with Liz “Snorkel” Thomas.
