THE POX and PUSS PODCAST : An Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker Experience

Set up in the MoJoe's Coffeehouse parking lot in Damascus, VA we sit down with 5 different Thru-Hikers to discuss their experiences on the Appalachian Trail. First up is Chipmunk, the 14 year-old attempting to become the youngest solo thru-hiker. Then we speak with Big Yankee, a 2013 Northbounder about his interesting experience in Gatlinburg, TN. Pox reunites with fellow 1998 thru-hiker Little Mac, he tells us about what it was like to climb Katahdin with Earl Schaffer. 2013 NOBO "Hey Whitey"and his trusty pooch Moose sit down with us to talk about the magical things that can happen to you out on the trail. We finish with a quick goofy interview with "Giggle Fitz" right before we all line up to walk in the Hiker Parade through town.
