This week we talk about the spooky-scary things that can happen in the woods.

Pox talks with Ryan Singer, a stand-up comedian who hosts a podcast about the Paranormal.

Some of these things can give you the Heebie Jeebies!

Also, it has been a very busy few weeks along the Appalachian Trail:

A fire rips thru historic Harper's Ferry.

Scott Jurek set a new speed record and makes some news on top of Katahdin.

And the search for missing hiker Inchworm enters its second year

The Hale Bop Comet Cult makes an appearance.

It turns out Pox and his Wife's "song" is a scene from The Simpsons.

Welcome to our third annual Trail Days show!

If you’ve heard our past Trail Days episodes, you know this is not our typical show.
Every year we set up our 10x10 tent in front of MoJoe’s Trail Side Café so we can meet and interview thru-hikers.
For some reason this year the crowds on the North side of town were a little bit thin.
Usually you can hear people all around us, talking, shouting, playing some weird instrument.
We’re always able to grab a few people from the crowd so we can talk with them.
This year…not so much.
Luckily we had two people lined up to talk with us; our Australian friend “Superfeet” and long-time P&P listener “Too Loud”.

Here are a few things we talk about in this episode:
Venomous vs. Poisonous

Paul Hogan throws a shrimp on the barbie

 Jermaine from Outback

A Trail Angel named Courtesy stops by to say hello

Another Episode where Pox’s Heart Grew Three Sizes!

Australians Love Lamb

Bears in the Smokies decimate some section hiker backpacks

Bay Pride!

“Too Loud” runs into a turkey.

Puss tells us about her “5 Hour Energy” routine.

Obviously I have barbecue and food on my mind in this episode….sorry.

You’ll hear us talk with people off mic as they come up to say hello or buy a t-shirt.

Please visit  AppTrials, sign up for the Thru-Hiker register, and when you’ve completed the trail, send Zach Good Badger Davis your summit photo so we can share it  with the world.

Leave a 5-Star Review on iTunes & Stitcher.

Hey folks!
Long time no see.
This short episode will:

-         - Prove to you that we are still alive.

-         - Fill you in on our sickness stories.

-         - Convince you to buy us a taxidermied squirrel.

-         - But most importantly…Tell You About The 2nd ANNUAL THRU-HIKER PROM!

Please check out the main Prom Info page on Appalachian Trials.
Also, please help us throw an amazing PROM by purchasing something from our Amazon Wish List.

Stay tuned because next week we'll have a full length episode.
Seriously.
We've already recorded it.
It's good.

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.

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!
