The Camp Walk•Along Wire Episode 20: Triple Crown Hoedown - Interview With Thru-Hiking Class of 2021
Yeeeeehaw! Camps collide in this special episode of The Camp Walk•Along Wire. Those campers from across the lake at Camp AT and Camp PCT are here to tell us all about their experiences thru hiking in 2021. We've told you all about the Continental Divide Trail, and now you can hear all about life on the Appalachian Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail with a little help from our friends! Joining us to talk about his experience on the Pacific Crest Trail is Tyler Clements, known on trail as "Tabs" and if you listen in, you can hear all about how he earned that name. His thoughtful and well planned approach can provide a different lens in to thru hiking than the happy-go-stupid approach that we seem to favor.  Also joining us to talk about her experience on the Appalachian Trail is Shannon Foley, also known as "Potential Roadkill". Roadkill offers up her experience doing a unique flip flop path as a reaction to circumstance and injury and how it shaped her hike! She also shares a little insight on her background, and how she came to be a thru hiker. The Campfire burns bright as all involved gather to talk about similarities and differences on the different trails, and get to know each other a little better. Turns out those kids from across the lake weren't so bad after all! The Camp Walk•Along Wire is brought to you through the vocal talents of: Corey “Bison” Rudell, Marcus “Wizard Spoon” Carroll, Andrew “PDF” Dalton This podcast is produced in collaboration with SalmonHouse and the work of the following contributors: Producing, Mixing, & Mastering by Camp AV Director, Danny Delaney Additional Mixing & Mastering by Camp AV Assistant, Evan Sherer Additional Editing by Camp AV Assistant, Avery James Original music by Camp Composer, Counselor Ube Bugle calls performed by Camp Bugler, Tommy Delaney Original Artwork by Camp Artisan, Erlan Vazquez Camper Outreach by Camp Counselor, Anna Rhodes Producing & Editing by Camp Historian, Andrew “Bookworm” Neylon You can find Tyler Clements at @Ts.clem on Instagram, and you can find Shannon at @potentialroadkill on instagram and @type2fun on tiktok!

The Camp Walk•Along Wire Episode 18: Live The Adventure - CDT Hiker Tips and Stories
Howdy Campers! We’ve got something a little different for you this week! We have some of our fellow hikers from the CDT on to share some of their most memorable experiences and provide some of their advice for your own future journeys! The phrase "Hike your own hike" is used in a lot of different ways on trail - it can be used to tell someone to go away, to encourage someone, or to settle a disagreement in a neutral way, but it also just means: do it however you need to for you to keep going! Listen to our fellow hikers as they share how they hiked their own hike!

Camp Walk·Along will continue to come out with new episodes and summer camp will be back before you know it, but more on that later! Listen along as we recant our tales of the final 100 miles, and slowly wrap up the trail. Some familiar friends return as we make our way out of the rocky mountains (except for PDF who's a full time Rocky Mountain boy) and everybody makes their way home! Wizardspoon and Bison return to Indiana where it all began, but don't worry campers- Hoosier state facts will have to wait for another day. We're back home now, resting and happy, but we will be back soon with one final episode about our experience on the Continental Divide trail. Keep an eye out for all our details on Summer Camp 2022 as well! We love you all campers, and hey... we went on a walk! Thank you for walking along!

The Camp Walk•Along Wire Episode 3: Never Quit On A Bad Day
Welcome to week three of The Camp Walk•Along Wire! Reminder: new campers are not to be tied to the tetherball poles. Episode three features our counselors on the road to the southern terminus of the Continental Divide Trail in New Mexico. As they contemplate the start of their journey, they discuss dares provided by their friends back home and the possibilities and expectations associated with their hike. Here at camp we love to laugh, but Camp Director Bison introduces some of the more serious ground rules and communication challenges that go along with any long distance hike. These include whether or not to hike together, what happens if someone loses their way on the trail, and what to do if a hiking partner is contemplating ending their hike early. Meanwhile, on a more hygienic note, Camp Counselor Marky shows off the Culo Clean - a backcountry bidet that all 3 of our counselors can’t wait to try out. Comfort and cleanliness are essential on any hike, and trust us, we’ll give you a thorough review. It’s not all doom, gloom, and bathroom - thankfully. Camp Counselor Dalto introduces a game of Over / Under, in which the three gamble their pride on various predictions associated with their hike. Play along at home! Finally, we close our camp session today with some journal entries recorded by the camp staff in the days leading up to their hike. It’s a rare opportunity to hear how a hiker feels before departing on the adventure of a lifetime. Don’t miss this one. As our counselors take their first steps on the trail, we’re glad to have you with us this season!

The Camp Walk•Along Wire Episode 2: It's Just One Foot In Front Of The Other - Interview with Dixie of Homemade Wanderlust
Welcome to week two of The Camp Walk•Along Wire! Did you try the sloppy joes in the cafeteria? We cap things off this episode with an introduction to our special guest Camp Counselor Dixie from Homemade Wanderlust. Dixie and Bison met on the Appalachian Trail in 2015 and since then Dixie has completed the Triple Crown of US long distance hiking trails, also including the Pacific Crest Trail and Continental Divide Trail. Dixie walks our counselors through her hiking journey, including her childhood love of the outdoors and the chance encounter which pushed her to start the Appalachian Trail. Along the way, she discusses the pros and cons of choosing the Continental Divide Trail as a first thru-hike and some of her favorite memories from her adventures. Our Counselors use this opportunity to get Dixie’s sage wisdom on topics like gear preferences in extreme weather, the best way to spend a “zero day” during your thru-hike, and the ideal playlist to help you climb a mountain. Knowledge is often a communal resource in long distance hiking, and Camp Walk•Along was very excited to have the opportunity to learn from Dixie’s experience. For decades, hikers have given talks, written articles, and now often make videos in an effort to educate and share their experience along these long-distance trails. The Homemade Wanderlust community has grown far and wide on Facebook, Youtube, and beyond -  we encourage you to follow along with Dixie’s continued outdoor pursuits. To end the episode, Dixie joins our counselors for a hiking themed “what if” question, as everyone considers who their ideal hiking partner would be… alive, dead, or fictional! As our counselors work their way to the New Mexico border, we’re glad to have you with us this season!

The Camp Walk•Along Wire Episode 1: Summer Camp Is What You Make It
Welcome to Camp Walk•Along! Your bunk is over there. We start things off this camp season with some introductions to our Camp Director Bison, as well as Camp Counselors Marky and Dalto. Our intrepid staffers begin by sharing their reflections on their childhood experiences with summer camps and how the freedom of youth has inspired them as adults. This year, our counselors are attempting to hike the Continental Divide Trail, across the United States of America from the Mexico to Canada borders, via New Mexico to Montana. The trail stretches some 3,100 miles and also includes portions of Colorado, Wyoming, and Idaho. As they dig into the details of their hike, our counselors break down their approach to water gathering on the trail (spoiler alert, it’s kind of gross), the “choose your own adventure” aspects of the CDT, and the genesis of their plans to do a thru-hike in 2021. Attempting a thru-hike is a massive undertaking. For this reason, the counselors discuss their personal training regiments over the past year. They also touch on the impact of a thru-hike on their families, their personal fears, and the moments they are most excited for along the trail. Camp Director Bison even shares the moment he nearly quit on his 2015 Appalachian Trail Thru-hike… juicy stuff! Our counselors end the episode by reflecting on their personal goals for their thru-hike, highlighting the long term growth they are seeking from their very, very long walk. We’re super excited to have you with us for camp this season! If you have any questions for our campers, send them our way at campwalkalong@gmail.com or hit us up @campwalkalong on instagram.
