We’re finally going to talk about “Wild”.
We waited to hear back from Reese and “her people” to see if she was going to do an interview with us.
She’s not.

This this is your warning: SPOILER ALERT!

If you haven’t read/watched Wild, you might want to skip this episode until you do.
Please understand that there’s a good chance we’re getting facts wrong about Wild, so we’re probably not really “spoiling” anything.
Also, please understand that we will be talking about “SENSITIVE SUBJECT MATTER” and as it relates to Wild.
You probably know what we’re talking about.

We also take phone calls, read out some iTunes reviews, and Laurie Potteiger gets a shout out.

So sit back, relax, and get ready to enjoy some “Non-Linear Banter…vaguely related to the Appalachian Trail”.

Since Flow Easy stuck around Natty Greene’s after mooching free beer from the @NCBeerGuys episode, we asked him to sit down and record with us.

Flow tells us about his most pleasant privy experience.

Pox and Flow went on a roadtrip after Trail Days in 2001.

Puss tells us about the privy habits of Fruit Bats. #CubePoop

Pox reads a page or two from his 1998 Appalachian Trail Thru-Hike journal.

Pox realizes that reading from his journal was a bad idea.

“Your Move…”

Sounds:

Intro to Facebook” - Garth Brooks  

“Milwaukee” – The Both

“Hippie Smell” – Ween

“Truckers Hitch” – Fliji

Boy oh boy!
We're talking about our first times on this episode.
No...not THOSE first times.
Trust us...we were waaaaaaaaay past our "firsts" by the time we got to our Thru-Hikes.
We're talking about some of the "firsts" you might not think of:
- First time weather changed your plans
- First time you camped by yourself
- First time you called home
- First half gallon of ice cream
- And many more
We also talk about how AWESOME our listeners are!
You tip!
You always say thank you to people who run stores, restaurants, hostels, motels, and more.....right?
Of course you do!
Check us out on Appalachian Trials.
Write a 5-Star Review on itunes or Stitcher...go ahead and subscribe to our podcast while you're there.
Big thanks to Mr. Rogers and Night Court!

Rivers, am I right guys?

We've all gotta cross them sometime in our life, but knowing when and HOW to cross them can be difficult.
If you're tuning in to our podcast hoping you can find some advice....you're in the wrong place, pal.

This episode we talk about things that can go wrong when you're around water in the backcountry.

We even talk with someone who was almost swept away by a river while she was training for her 2015 Appalachian Trail Thru-Hike.

Puss In Boots returns to the co-host chair after a few weeks away from the microphone.

Pox gets a puppy.

An old friend of ours volunteers to eat one of the most vile things you can buy in South Korea: The KFC Double Down Burger!

What should you do when you're hiking and a lightning storm pops up?

Don't ask us!

On this episode of the Pox & Puss Podcast we discuss our varied lightning stories.

Pox tells a story about one of the most famous lightning strikes in outdoor recreation history.

Puss tells us her Appalachian Trail "origin story".

Pox drinks something horrible.

We talked about The Fappening of 2014

We were so lucky to have Gordon Biggerstaff on our show this week!

Pox caught 2014 Northbound Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker Gordon right before he left for his home in Scotland.

We sat down at the Friends of the Smokies offices in Severirville, TN.

Gordan was working the night shift when he listened to Bill Bryson's "A Walk In The Woods", and from there the inspiration began.

There's a discussion of bears, ice cream, how surprisingly cold Georgia can be sometimes, lazy Rattlesnakes, and Nation Building.

Gordon was also raising money for two separate charities as he hiked, one in the US and one in the UK

US: http://www.ultimatehike.org/faf/donorReg/donorPledge.asp?ievent=1102602&lis=1&kntae1102602=E56FB158E34040719D0569153D0C2B8E&supId=401296454
UK: https://www.justgiving.com/Gordon-Biggerstaff/

We also congratulate This week's Appalachian Trail Thru-Hikers!

Thanks!

Here it is!

Our conversation with Travel Channel Host, Stand Up Comedian, Author, and Podcaster: Bert Kreischer!

Some of you might also recognize Bert from his appearances on podcasts such as: “The Joe Rogan Experience”, “The Duncan Trussell Family Hour”, and “Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend”.

Maybe you know Bert as The Machine, but in this podcast we have a wonderful opportunity to discuss the amazing locations visits and the experiences Bert has hosting his showTrip Flip.

We also get some behind the scenes info about the show:
- He tells us about one of his most favorite mornings…ever!
- We discuss his most rewarding outdoor experience.
- And Yellow Snow

Oh! And if you don’t recognize that female voice, it is My Wife.
Don’t worry, Puss will be back next episode!

Bert tells us about the time he hiked the Appalachian Trail in Virginia with brand new boots.
We have confirmation.

Pox manages to work in a plug for Thru Hiker Prom and spill beer on his phone.
Bert tells us about some words of wisdom Patrice O’Neal gave him years ago.
Mr. Microphone makes an appearance.
We discuss “Dream Guests” we’d like to have on our respective podcasts.
Cat Calling? Who Cat Calls anymore?
The workout Bert talks about can be found here.


We’ll see y’all in two weeks.
Our next show will be a kind of “Potpouri” category on Jeopardy.


Call and leave a message with your Appalachian Trail, Adventure Travel, or Bert Kreischer stories at 828-394-4526


And if Heaven is real...Greg Kinnear better be there waiting for us.
