We are only a few days away from celebrating the Pox & Puss Podcast's 10th anniversary. So, in honor of that day, we bring you b-b-b-b-bonus content from In The Pines, where Pox talks about his 1998 thru-hike and the cast of fugitives and bandits he met along the way.
During the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, GA, Eric Rudolph detonated a 100lbs pipe bomb in Centennial Park. One person was killed and 111 were injured. Three more bombs went off in the weeks and months following the Olympic bombing.

On August 16th, 2016, a man covered with desert dirt, who looked as if he’d been hiking for days, walked into a rural California convenience store and bought $100 worth of junk food and water. Located near the Pacific Crest Trail, the convenience store owner was no stranger to dirty hikers. However, this man happened to match the description of a suspected murderer wanted by the police. In less than an hour, the man would be shot dead as he was walking back to the Pacific Crest Trail.
This is the crazy story of how Benjamin Peter Ashley terrorized the remote canyon communities of Central California and used the Pacific Crest Trail to elude authorities for weeks.

Lake Sidney Lanier is an artificial lake that was created in the 1950s by building Buford Dam on the Chattahoochee River in northern Georgia. The 38,000-acre lake lies on top of the ruins of towns and farmland of over 700 families. Today, the lake has over 11 million visitors every year, about the same number of annual visitors as the Louvre. Lake Lanier is also one of the deadliest lakes in the USA. 500 people have drowned and many of their bodies have never been recovered. What is killing so many people in this lake? Underwater debris? Crazy currents? Could it be the ghosts of the Cherokee Nation who were driven out during the Trail of Tears? Maybe it's a curse caused by the people of Oscarville, whose once-thriving town is now at the bottom of a 200' deep lake.

Back in May, with very few sports on TV, Pox Holiday started recording and watching late-night Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) games on ESPN. After watching a few KBO games, Pox knew he had to contact the only friend he has who has been to a few of these games: past Pox & Puss Podcast guest, Brad!
Trust us, once you've watched a KBO game or two, you'll probably have a lot of questions. Questions like, "Why are there so many cheerleaders and DJ's?" or "Is that a 7' tall dinosaur named 'Swole Daddy'?" or "Does everyone there have these dances memorized?" or "Didn't that guy used to play in the United States?"
Brad takes time out of his morning to teach us about KBO customs, traditions, and beer delivered on backpacks.

Here it is…the final chapter in our 2016 Trail Days Interviews series.
This time we have a quick discussion with Asiago about just how difficult it can be to get to Erie, PA.
Unfortunately, it was a short interview.
So we dug deep into the Pox & Puss hard drives and wound up coming back with something even OLDER than these 2016 interviews.
At the end of this episode we finally share our recounting of the 2013 Thru-Hiker Parade Tragedy.

Every year we set up in front of MoJoe’s Trailside Café we seem to interview at least one non-American. 2016 was no exception: Samsquatch is from the U.K.
His girlfriend, Jade, didn’t want to talk.
As a reminder, this was the year that Puss was violently ill and suddenly got sick inside of her car on the way to Trail Days.
Another easy Visa story.

Baltimore Jack Tarlin sits down to speak with us in the historic Mountain Crossings outfitter at Neels Gap along the Appalachian Trail. Jack tells us about his life on the Trail since his first attempt at a Thru-Hike in 1995...and his 9 completed thru-hikes since then. Pox & Puss regale Jack with stories about the first times they met him. We also discuss the Monsoon of 2003, Ghostbusters, Olive Oyl, and...of course...The Doyle Hotel.

Meh. Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker Podcast
