About Us

Hey, BirdShooter here. I am a Hiker, Backpacker (GAME '94), Author (Best Hikes With Dogs Georgia & South Carolina) and frequent visitor to the backcountry - especially in the Southeastern U.S. If you are interested in hiking and backpacking topics like long distance trails, backcountry destinations, trans-continental adventures and major mishaps and learning experiences from the trail – then subscribe here. Since 2011, I’ve worked to podcast both novice and experienced travelers on the trail and hope you enjoy the interviews. You can also click over to n2backpacking.com for bonus shows and older episodes.

Episode 64: Trail Days 2019

In Episode 64, Gary "Drone Boy" Vaughan returns to the show to discuss our May trip to Appalachian Trail Days in Damascus, Virginia. He recently chauffeured me to the annual event where I joined the Class of 1994 to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of our thru-hike. In the podcast, we talk about what it's like for a first timer at the event, what it’s like for a veteran of the festival (that hasn’t been for 20 years), and review our experiences at Tent City, in town, and on the parade route - where I walked with my class in the annual Trail Days parade. Did I mention that we drove to Damascus in a 100% electric car ??? We'll discuss that too, and talk briefly about our hike on the Appalachian Trail near Roan Mountain on the drive up. For more information on Trail Days, you can click here, or check-out Episode 41 at N2Backpacking to hear more from the Class of 1994 who I interviewed during our 1st anniversary at Trail Days a year after our thru-hike.

Episode 61: The Hayduke

In Episode 61, Alex "Money $hot" Maier returns to the show to talk with us about his recent film and adventure on the 812 mile Hayduke Trail which starts in Arches National Park and finishes in Zion National Park - traversing the slot canyons, desert washes, and mountain ranges that make the deserts lands of Southern Utah and North Arizona some of the most scenic landscapes in North America. In the podcast, Alex tells us about the remote wilderness and true solitude that awaits you on the Hayduke, and with brutal honesty discusses the desert hazards that make this one of the most challenging thru-hikes in North America. Money Shot also shares with us some valuable lessons from the Hayduke, and hints at why thru-hiking these lesser traveled routes may provide a front and backcountry experience that is hard to find on some of the major long distance trails of North America these days.

Episode 60B: Troubadour (A.T. 25th Anniversary Series)

In Episode 60, I speak with Troubadour about his 1994 thru-hike on the Appalachian Trail. This is the first release in a special bonus series to celebrate the 25th anniversary of our hike, and it was recorded at Trail Days on May 13, 1995 in Damascus, Virginia. After finishing the A.T. in 1994, Troubadour went on to hike the Pacific Crest Trail in 1999 and the Continental Divide Trails in 2002 - walking nearly 10,000 miles and completing the Triple Crown - which we discuss in detail in Episode 18. In this episode, however, we flashback 25 years to Damascus to sit by the river and talk about Troubadour's Appalachian Trail thru-hike. The interview was done in a field, with a small handheld mic and cassette tape recorder. So don't expect high fidelity - but I'm grateful to have this and all 11 recordings of my thru-hiking buddies and A.T. Class of 1994. For access to this A.T. bonus series buy any 10 Pack, and use promo code "AT1994" as the coupon code. Subject: Appalachian Trail Thru-...
