In today's episode of Backpacker Radio presented by The Trek, we are once again joined by Patricia Cameron. We catch up on all that she's been up to since our last interview, including a NOLS mountaineering leadership course in Alaska, a 2022 LASH on the PCT, and a hiker trash prom hosted by her organization, Blackpackers. Patricia also shares a distressing story of her being the victim of a hate crime during her PCT hike in Lone Pine, California, in which she caught the entire encounter on video. We play the audio from this incident, get Patricia's take on exactly what went down, some of her thoughts on the risk and reception of being a hiker of color through these rural towns, and despite this incident, why she has no plans to stop long-distance backpacking anytime soon. A warning to listeners that the audio from this video is triggering, but I do believe that it's important for everyone in the community to hear this and get a sense of the depressing reality that still persists for many of our fellow hikers. We wrap the show with a few reasons why a flip-flop thru-hike might be the way to go on the AT, a triple crown of non-dog pets, a superb listener poop story, and more.

“When on a long trail there is no finishing, I am just existing.” Welcome back to the Off Trail Podcast! Today we sit down with Masochist, also known as Matthew, to learn more about his deep dive into this life of adventure. We begin with a little backstory learning of his career in IT which began only 2 weeks out of high school. Flash forward to his 39th year around the sun and he was ready for a change. We chat the impetus for the change, a mixture of loved ones passing away, the support of a wonderful partner, and the appreciation for learning you just never know how much time you have. We chat the difficulties of balance when consumed with passion, a very irregular existence in general, and having more plans than available time. We chat travel fatigue, cravings of stability, and the treat of “nothingness.” We chat becoming antsy, campground conundrums, and volunteering with the Sierra Club. We discuss shorter distance trails losing some of their shine, surviving without zero days, and the feeling of just existing. It's less about mileage he says and more about just the time on a trail. We then jump into the Condor Trail. We learn of the bushwhacks, the lack of consideration for resupplies, and preparing oneself for the indignities of “actual trail.” We chat the why. We chat goal oriented mentality and going from point A to B. We then take a look into the PCT in 2020 and the flavor of the first long trail in the year that shall not be spoken. We chat normalcy in the abnormal, a “private tour” of the PCT, and exposure in town being minimal. We chat planning a long hike while actively finishing a long hike, aiming higher, and learning of the ECT's existence. We then chat all things Eastern Continental Trail. We chat homeless encampments, being told by a person it was “my bush,” and $300 for one of the worst hotel stays ever. We chat magic, consistency, and the meat grinder that is called pavement. We chat mentality around 5,000 miles, the Florida Keys, and how to avoid the scariest wildlife of all; aggressive dogs. We chat moose hunting, caribou mating, pit bulls, something called Meat Cove, a untouchable lighthouse, and a “snarl torpedo.” We then get into the heavy segment of emotions. We chat Matt's choice that was not a choice to get of his CDT hike earlier this year. We chat altitude cough turned into a serious case of COVID. We chat being bedridden, feverish, and physically depleted. We chat being used to being in pain but the threshold that exists between “push mentality” and when it becomes unsafe. We chat bargaining, acceptance, and planning for the future. We chat deeper questions of existence and doing everything one can to continue. Truly a wonderful chat with Matthew, thank you for sharing with us all your journey! FAVORITE QUOTES: “[Thru-hiking] gives you appreciation for how hard it is just to exist when you don't have a place to go home to.” “Long trails tend to be addicting to some of us…” “Even bedridden I was already making plans.” “I can push through anything, I can keep going.” To learn more about Masochist go to: YouTube: @FirstChurchofTheMasochistHikes Instagram: @mattonamtn To learn more about who we are click below: Website: www.ElevenSkys.com

About Claire: "More than anything else, I want the world to know that I live in Alaska. I am currently working on my pilot's license to truly become a full Alaskan. In 2019 I hiked the PCT and the AT in 2022. I have also biked across the country multiple times. Most of my professional life has been as a Park ranger and commercial fisherman.

Barney “Scout” Mann has been called “the dean of America's long-distance trails” and is one of the rare individuals to have conquered the Triple Crown of thru-hiking, successfully completing the 8,000 combined miles of the Appalachian, Pacific Crest, and Continental Divide Trails. Each spring for the past fifteen years he and his wife Sandy have hosted hikers starting out on the PCT (more than 7,000 to date) at their San Diego home, providing them with a final hot meal and a bit of encouragement before they begin their trek from Mexico to Canada. So, we sat down with Barney to chat about his deep connections to the PCT and the community it creates; "Journeys North," the memoir he wrote about his own 2007 thru-hike; the future of thru-hiking in America; and much more.TOPICS & TIMES:Trail names (2:02)Scout 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0 (12:10)Career as a “kind” lawyer (16:05)Mastering the art of storytelling (19:28)"Journeys North" (20:30)His 2007 PCT thru-hike (24:13)Vulnerability on the trail (32:43) The endurance mindset (42:02)The future of the PCT & being a trail advocate (47:10) RELATED LINKS:Journeys NorthBarney's website Blister Summit 2023Become a Blister MemberBlister + Spot InsuranceCHECK OUT OUR OTHER PODCASTSCRAFTEDBlister PodcastGEAR:30Bikes & Big Ideas Hosted on Acast.

European Vs. US Thru Hiking, what's the same, what's different? “They are actually paid in cheese.” Welcome back to the Off Trail Podcast! Don't let the first line fool you, we talk much more in depth about the intricacies of hiking in Europe and the US… but of course we do spend the obligatory time touching on cheese. Welcome back Christine Thuermer! After our first chat with her, she had a wonderful idea as she has hiked so many miles both overseas and in the US, that it could be a wonderful informational source to unpack the concept of hiking. We begin by setting a baseline of the difference between US and European hiking. It comes down to “wilderness vs culture.” Of course while in the US you can experience many cultures while hiking, but the vast majority of your day is spent in the wild, hiking. In Europe the conduit of course is still hiking but the experience becomes drastically different. You walk through history, walk through towns, walk through almost daily food, lodging, and “front country” exposure. We chat the E1-E11 trail systems of Europe, we chat the Camino, we chat standards of US hiking such as the AT or PCT and how there is no “standard” of European hiking. We then dive into logistics. Crossing borders, language barriers, and the amazing power of Google translate. We discuss SIM cards, governmental management, politeness, and avoiding stepping on “cultural toes.” We then compare and contrast resupply strategies. How to carry food, when to carry food, and most importantly why you should not carry *alot* of food in Europe. We discuss cemeteries, water sources, and churches. Of course we ask about ramen, and get a wonderful answer. Next up, camping. We discuss the concept of most “free camping” in Europe being forbidden, but how this is more of a general guideline then iron rule. We chat hunters, dog walkers, and forestry personal. We chat easements, public roads, and trails. We chat asking for help, knocking on doors, and no trail angels. We chat budget, $1 wine bottles, sugar taxes, and the vast difference from country to country. We chat how there is a place and trail for every budget it is just about picking it. We chat 1 brewery for every 5,000 people, self service wine coolers, and food, food, and more food. We chat Waymarktrails.org a wealth of information for European hikers and what OSM maps or Open Street Maps are utilized for. We chat the concept of “hiking” is part of day to day life vs an exclusive trip. We chat credit card hiking (hint: not what you think it means) and how running out a trail in Europe is possible… but not the point. Experience the culture, experience the food, experience a trail and a hike European style! Thank you Christine for sharing the information with us! Favorite Quotes: “If caught more likely to be invited for breakfast than chased away.” “Don't think a lot of what goes into the ground water in cemeteries.” “The louder we speak the more Google will understand it.” “What makes it so special is the culture, take time to immerse yourself in that.” To learn about Christine go to: Instagram: @Christine_Thuermer To learn more about who we are click below: Website: www.ElevenSkys.com

As a young adult who wanted to help with his family finances, Barrett was told that modeling could help his family out of financial trouble so he pursued it. On top of trying to make money; Barrett was struggling with coming out and learning about his own queerness as he was immersed in the vicious world of modeling.

December 29th of every year marks another anniversary of the Wound Knee Massacre of 1890 and the Occupation of Wounded Knee occurred from 02/27/1973 to 05/08/1973. The Wounded Knee Massacre of 1890 is the result of the United States (U.S.) 7th Calvary stopped Miniconjou and Lakota Ghost Dancers and community members from returning home to Pine Ridge in what is now known as South Dakota. The Would Knee Massacre took place near the Wounded Knee Creek during a time when the United States government essentially banned all Native American traditions and ceremonies. Shortly thereafter the initial encounter, a scuffle ensued which resulted in the U.S. 7th Calvary open firing and killing over 300 Indigenous women, children, and men. The Occupation of Wounded Knee from 02/27/1973 to 05/08/1973 is the outcome of over 200 members of the American Indian Movement and supporters occupying Wounded Knee (Lakota Nation) in response to a call to action from traditional Lakota residents whose civil, human, and treaty rights were constantly being violated by corrupt Indigenous and United States government officials. The Wound Knee Occupation resulted in a 67-day military standoff with U.S. government officials and quickly drew international and domestic support from people, organizations, and foreign governments throughout the world. Today's show on American Indian Airwaves is comprised of sound from two principal sources: The Pacifica Radio archives and the documentary A Tattoo on My Heart: The Warriors of Wounded Knee 1973. The Pacifica Radio Archives include original reports from Pacifica's-affiliate station, KPFA in Berkeley, CA which covered live the 1973 Wounded Knee occupation. In addition, sound from the documentary A Tattoo on My Heart: The Warriors of Wounded Knee 1973 includes reflective testimonies of the Wound Knee Indigenous activist such as Lenny Foster, Bill Means, Madonna Thunderhawk, and narrated by the late Floyd “Red Crow” Westerman, plus more.

Tommy Corey's eye for outdoor portrait photography landed him front and center in the hiking community during his 2018 PCT thru-hike when he began posting fashion-esque portraits of fellow thru-hikers under the project name “Hiker Trash Vogue.” The photo project captured the attention of major outdoor brands and was even featured in Outside Online. Tommy received high accolades for his work, but it was also pointed out that his subjects did not represent a range of diverse backgrounds in the outdoors. Tommy went to work studying and trying to understand better what “diversity” and “inclusion” meant in the outdoors and in 2022 found himself once again on a trail headed north along the Continental Divide Trail. It took him 800 miles of hiking to realize he was not doing what he set out to do by documenting diversity in the outdoors so he left the trail to pursue a new and comprehensive portrait project he calls “All Humans Outside.” The idea is to be able to open a book of 100 portraits and stories and see someone like yourself represented in the outdoors.This podcast episode is a conversation between myself and Tommy about his CDT realizations, his upcoming project, and what “diversity” and “inclusion” really mean in the outdoors. This is a topic I often find to be tough to nail down at times, not to mention for some, emotionally charged. Those terms along with ones like “community” are thrown around like candy these days and I find myself sincerely wondering where it all leads and how to approach it. Conversations like this one aren't meant to solve problems. They're meant to discuss them and gain perspective which is exactly what I personally achieved.

Mighty Blue On The Appalachian Trail: The Ultimate Mid-Life Crisis

This week, our guest, Samuel Crisp, is another of the Class of 2022 thru-hikers. His mature approach to the trail, his understanding and treatment of his injuries, and his intentional reflections, make for a fascinating conversation. Sam was lucky enough to summit Katahdin with his mother; indeed, he summoned up that image to keep him motivated on the trail when the going got tough. To see more of Sam, you can watch his hike through his vlog at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZuwzNRxP0Q&t=3s Our latest member of the Mighty Blue Class of 2023 is Mark Carpenter, a retired firefighter, whose real concern is facing the prospect of extended separation from his wife. For many, missing family is a real test, yet it is one of many aspects of a thru-hike that we all have to face out there. I got a message from one of our guests from the past; Stephanie "Sunshine" Lorenze. She hopes that the Mighty Blue family can help her YouTube channel move up a level by subscribing to it. She did the PCT in 2022, so subscribe if you'd like to watch her stories. https://www.youtube.com/@sunshineshikingandadventur9932/featured While I can't promise it will be ready when you read these notes, our "merch" store is projected to be open this week.

Kevin goes in-depth about the life of a wildland firefighter, how his crippling panic attacks nearly lead to his demise, and his spirit of giving back and bettering the community around him.
