There's always a focus on the highs and lows during a long adventure, but what about the many difficulties folks can run into in the weeks and months after finishing something like a thru-hike?

This week I am so excited to talk with hiker, lawyer and outdoor advocate Charlotte Buell. Charlotte is a lawyer by trade and outdoor junkie at heart. When you meet her, you'll quickly learn she is all about supporting others in believing they can do and be anything they want, regardless of their life history or body type, and to be gentle with themselves along their life's journey. Backpacking and hiking are her favorite ways to spend time outside. However, she doesn't stop there. Charlotte also skis, snowboards, mountain bikes, and kayaks, all in a plus size body. Unapologetically. Faced with tragedies early in life, she started her adult outdoor experience as a means of escape. Now, she's morphed this mindset into one where the outdoors is a place of healing and her favorite feeling of unbridled freedom. Charlotte decided to quit drinking almost 6 years ago in her 20's when she was bit by the backpacking bug HARD. She hasn't looked back since. She is currently trying to build a backpacking gear library in her “treehouse” so she can outfit beginners for free when she takes them backpacking for the first time. This is her favorite thing to do. Charlotte lives in North Carolina with her husband, 3 cats, and 3 dogs.

Travel Gluten Free Podcast Episode 164 Backpacking Around the World with Katie Barbaro of Casual Ecstasy Podcast   Welcome to the Travel Gluten Free Podcast. Today, I have Katie Barbaro from the Casual Ecstacy Podcast. Katie is an occupational therapist, comedian, and up-and-coming author. She believes that life should be lived like an improv show, and hopes to help others awaken their potential.    Solo Travelling the World    Katie is an extensive traveler. In 2018, she spent the year visiting Thailand, Iceland, England, France, the Netherlands, and other parts of Europe and Asia. She decided to leave her normal life behind because of her life coach, who identified many of her personal values. Katie asked herself, “What would feel the most me?”, and decided that travelling the world with no plan and only her intuition to rely on was the answer.    Katie did much of her traveling thanks to the Workaway platform, which allows volunteers to connect and live with host families in exchange for a few hours of work. Throughout her trip, Katie stayed with friends new and old, meeting many open-hearted people and volunteering at incredible places.    Surrendering to the Present Moment   When travelling Asia, Katie found a different kind of relaxation in her body upon landing. There was a peacefulness in Asia that wasn't present in Europe or the U.S.. In the West, we're taught that being busy equals happiness. For Katie, travelling brings her into the present moment. She's gone into many new and unique situations with the intention of learning and appreciating, as a lifelong student.    Katie talks about the spontaneity of solo travelling with an anecdote of her motorbike rental in Indonesia. She was never someone who would ride anything with two wheels before, but by pushing herself out of her comfort zone, she got to evolve her own idea of who she is. Through traveling, Katie has cultivated her intuition and learned how to be at home with herself, no matter where she is.    Publishing Her First Book    Katie recently published her book, “Fed Up An Illustrative Guide to Food Freedom.” She hand-wrote and illustrated the book to document her recovery from disordered eating. The cartoon-based memoir focuses on her raw and honest experience with over-exercising, calorie-counting, and more.   Katie feels that the harmful pressures of diet culture in the U.S. are inescapable, and strongly believes in speaking out in order to demystify the taboo around eating disorders. If you have any kind of weird relationship with food, Katie says, this book is for you.    Listen in to hear about Katie's mystery trip, the lessons she's learned as a solo female traveller, and where she plans to go next.    Connect with Katie on Instagram and find her book on her website   Happy 30th Birthday to Our Sponsor Kinnikinnick!   Kinnikinnick is celebrating its 30th birthday and is offering Travel Gluten Free listeners a 10% discount when you use the code TravelGlutenFree at checkout!

While quitting can indeed be a kindness, Nicole solo hiked all 800 rugged miles of the Arizona Trail.

This episode is a little bit of a different format than what you might be used to. We do hit a lot of entrepreneurial themes and we still dig into the nitty-gritty of what Heather's Choice is all about but, I think what really sets this episode apart is Heather Really lays out her relationship with Heather's Choice, Entrepreneurship, and the meaning behind it all. This isn't just a job or career, this is a HUGE passion point for Heather, she even describes it as more of an art project. To sum up this episode simply, Heather Kelly is a badass, I wish we had more time to really dig into things and I'm.

Stay tuned for an announcement about a launch date for the second season in the upcoming weeks. My friend and keeper of the outdoors, Brian Bell from Keep Virginia Cozy, sat down with me to record a trailer where we reveal a sneak peek into upcoming episodes of Virginia Outdoor Adventures.

After appearing on Virginia Outdoor Adventures, they invited me to be a guest on their show, which recently aired on She Opts Out Podcast.

I also got to talk about building an outdoor community in Virginia, completing Trail Quest by visiting every Virginia State Park, and some of my most memorable hikes. Also included in our discussion – solo hiking and solo adventuring, outdoor safety, my gear, four-season hiking, one of my personal fears (which is probably not what you would expect), and my advice for beginner adventurers. Without further ado, here is my first guest appearance on She Opts Out Podcast.

Listen in as they share stories from the time they met on the Pacific Crest Trail, the uniqueness of hiking in South America and their most recent journey on the Great Divide Trail. Fidget and Neon's journey is much more than the miles traversed, but an intimate connection formed with the land and the people who live near it.  Bethany's love of mountains began when she was 4 years old, following her father into the Andes of Ecuador and Chile. As Bethany walks through the areas where she first learned of the beauty and possibilities of the world—as well as the deep inequalities—she hopes to inspire everyone who follows to dream big and to foster access for women and children to resources, both internal and external, which can help to make their dreams reality.

We met with our innovation guru, Cristina Ahmadpour, and broke open the buzz to get to the nitty-gritty. We discussed concrete ways organizations can create cultures of innovation that result in increased deployment of innovative practices and technologies. Guess what...communication is a key component. Culture change, gaining buy-in for your innovation program, collaboration, and creativity all require an ability to not only communicate your vision but to do so in a manner that inspires others to come along with you. We also dive into ways you can innovate your team culture, even when managing a fully remote team. Cristina serves as Managing Director of Isle's North American business. She leads a team that supports the most progressive water utilities in their interest to identify, evaluate, and engage best-available solutions that drive value to their services and business operations. Facilitating an assessment of needs and identifying solutions that respond to top priorities, and how to build a culture of innovation, is an integral part of how she works with water utility leaders today. Cristina is a graduate of WEF's Water Leadership Institute and has been recognized by the Water and Wastewater Digest in 2016 and 2018 as a top water professional under the age of 40. Cristina is married to her middle school sweetheart and enjoys life in San Diego with their cat Vera Rubin.

Before Mac of Halfway Anywhere thru-hiked the Pacific Crest Trail in 2013, he struggled to find useful information about the trail. Sure, he read anecdotal thru-hiking accounts. But what worked for one person might not work for him. Mac wanted data. So after completing the trail that year, Mac started a PCT survey to gather that data for himself. The results both somewhat dismayed him while at the same time, proved quite useful. For example, one of Mac's many findings suggested that hikers wildly underestimate how much a thru-hike costs. In fact, underestimating thru-hike finances proves to be one of the primary reasons people abandon their hike.After Mac thru-hiked the Continental Divide Trail in 2017, he started a survey for that trail as well. Surprising to many, the CDT mostly sticks to well-defined trail. But unlike other long trails, the CDT provides numerous “alternates” that hikers can take to supplement or supplant the official route. Mac was able to get surprising figures about these "alternates" as well as tons of other useful data for future CDT thru-hikers. On today's episode of Out and Back, Mac weaves his eight years of survey data together with his first hand observations to illuminate how the PCT and CDT have evolved over the past decade. Hint: he doesn't think it's all been for the better. He also dishes out his controversial view of trail angels and trail magic. Plus, Mac explains why he hates the word “tramly” (aka “trail family). Finally, you may have noticed the elephant in the room: Mac has not thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail and does not conduct an AT survey. In fact, Mac swears he will never hike the east's longest trail. He explains why he feels this way...and of course...Shanty will try and change Mac's mind about it...A self-proclaimed random guy on the internet, Mac has no proven validity to his findings. But he's here to help prospective thru-hikers actually glean information that will be useful in their monumental undertaking. Mac may not be a scientist, but he thinks with the precision of one, constantly trying to refine and improve the surveys with each iteration. If you're planning on thru-hiking the PCT or the CDT next year, sign up to take the survey when it becomes available. Comb through the vast PCT and CDT survey data on Mac's website, Halfway Anywhere. You'll also find all types of useful insight and analysis, including gear guides for both the PCT and CDT. Sign up for Mac's newsletter, and follow Mac's adventures on Instagram.

Dyana Carmella joins America's Podcaster, Kurt Caceres, to complete her emotional and inspirational journey through 1200 miles and 71 days solo on the Pacific Northwest Trail. Though she doesn't want her mother to hear this, she now admits that she should've died multiple times. The power of the human spirit is greater than we even know until we are tested and have no option to fail. We are so used to our comfortable first world life, with all the amenities, that we are never faced with the obstacles that will truly show us the great feats that humans are capable. Once you tap into your potential, you will never fear anything again. She found her appreciation for simple things like food, at one point in her journey having ran out and forced to starve and only live off wild berries in the middle of nowhere. She reminds us that we don't need much to live a happy life. On the contrary, its the gluttony and over indulgence that actually makes us unhealthy and unhappy. Mother Nature is real, her energy omniscient and power unwavering. Once you become one with that source, it will change your life forever.

It's separate from the more scientific astrophotography but shares many of the same challenges such as extremely low light and very long exposure times. Optically it's one of the most demanding types of photography imaginable. Just about any flaw in a lens is going to be more noticeable when shooting nightscapes so we'll be covering Matthew's go-to gear, how he decides what to take on a shoot, and his favorite techniques for capturing nightcaps.

Coffee is life for many of us. It's our morning ritual, a jolt that shakes us out of the afternoon doldrums, and a pick-me-up when we need to burn the midnight oil. But in the backcountry, brewing the perfect cup can be complicated. A pour-over leaves you with messy grounds to haul out and instant coffee often falls short on taste. We turned to some of our favorite professional hikers — Heather “Anish” Anderson, the Hiking Viking, Adventure Alan Dixon, and Liz “Snorkel” Thomas — to unmask the secrets to brewing the best cup of coffee in camp. We spent time with each of these world-famous hikers, learning how they use coffee in their adventures and what they do to make their morning cup of joe in the wild. Turns out their methods for making coffee on trail are as wild and varied as their personalities. They join us on the Out and Back podcast this week to share their field-tested brewing techniques, so you can get the most out of your coffee on your next adventure.
