Show Notes

In this episode, Comics interviews her friends in Ireland. Their trail names are Fizzy, Bear, and Sweeps. If you're curious what it's like for kids / families to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail or do any kind of long distance backpacking and adventuring together, they offer some great insights in this conversation. Sweeps discusses some of the backpacking gear he's made for his family. The three of them share what the pandemic has been like in Ireland. 

Our Adventure Memoir for this episode (discussed at the end) is Hikertrash: Life on the Pacific Crest Trail by Erin Miller.
