  • This week I am so excited to talk with hiker, lawyer and outdoor advocate Charlotte Buell.

    Charlotte is a lawyer by trade and outdoor junkie at heart. When you meet her, you’ll quickly learn she is all about supporting others in believing they can do and be anything they want, regardless of their life history or body type, and to be gentle with themselves along their life’s journey.

    Backpacking and hiking are her favorite ways to spend time outside. However, she doesn’t stop there. Charlotte also skis, snowboards, mountain bikes, and kayaks, all in a plus size body. Unapologetically.

    Faced with tragedies early in life, she started her adult outdoor experience as a means of escape. Now, she’s morphed this mindset into one where the outdoors is a place of healing and her favorite feeling of unbridled freedom.

    Charlotte decided to quit drinking almost 6 years ago in her 20’s when she was bit by the backpacking bug HARD. She hasn’t looked back since.

    She is currently trying to build a backpacking gear library in her “treehouse” so she can outfit beginners for free when she takes them backpacking for the first time. This is her favorite thing to do.

    Charlotte lives in North Carolina with her husband, 3 cats, and 3 dogs.

  • This week I am so excited to talk with Ginny and Josh of Trail Keepers of Oregon.Almost all of today’s hiking trails were built more than 80 years ago.Almost all of them are currently maintained by volunteers. Explosive trail use and a lack of funding for trail maintenance is a real threat to our favorite trails. In 2007, a group of concerned hikers founded Trailkeepers of Oregon. Our work takes the form of trail maintenance projects and advocacy work to restore proper funding to a resource so beneficial and beloved by Oregonians. Backed by the generosity of hundreds of donors and volunteers, Trailkeepers of Oregon is committed to making sure everyone has access to Oregon’s most special places for years to come.For More on Trail Keepers of Oregon go to trailkeepersoforegon.orgFollow TKO on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/trailkeepersoforegon/We'd like to thank our sponsors: CNOC Outdoors making our adventures the best possible, simple, enjoyable, fulfilling and sustainable.

  • This week I am so excited to talk with Hiker, Adventurer, Author, & Host of the new Unlikely Stories Podcast, Derick Lugo.Derick Lugo had never hiked, camped or pitched a tent a day in his life. However, this Brooklyn-born, New York City urbanite hopped a train to Georgia, grabbed a taxi to the beginning of the Appalachian Trail, and then he did as he has always done — put one foot in front of the other and never looked back.After thru-hiking for 2,192 miles and several thousand more on various different trails, he now feels invincible and plans to cross the Sahara barefoot. (Not really, but when an ambitious spirit is successful, it will strive for even greater accomplishments.)Storytelling is Derick’s forte; he’s the author of The Unlikely Thru-Hiker, a memoir of his 6-month hike of the entire Appalachian Trail, he’s written several articles for outdoor magazines, and short stories for various books. He’s a keynote speaker, adventurer and host of the new podcast, Unlikely Stories.To learn more about Derick Lugo and his next adventures follow him on Instagram @dericklugo, Facebook @dericklugo and at www.dericklugo.com.We'd like to thank our sponsors: CNOC Outdoors making our adventures the best possible, simple, enjoyable, fulfilling and sustainable.

  • This week I am so excited to talk with HIKER, ADVENTURER, EDUCATOR & AUTHOR Gail Muller!

    Gail Muller is an adventurer, hiker, author, and educator. For fifteen years she struggled with muscular-skeletal issues and the chronic pain that would arise from them. In 2019, after years searching for cures for her physical and mental health, she realized it was time for a profound change. She knows now she’s not able to live a regular life and is embracing this new understanding of herself: adventuring, hiking, writing and inspiring others to do the same. She lives, hikes and swims in Cornwall. She has recently returned from the Continental Divide Trail - a massive hike across the United States where she battled with unmarked trails, weeks at altitude and raging snowmelt-filled river fords. A large, ever-growing online community accompanied her on her trip, gaining advice, inspiration and embracing the joy of her adventures.

    Gail’s debut memoir Unlost: A journey of self-discovery and the healing power of the wild outdoors, is set to release on Tuesday September 7.

  • This week Andy is excited to talk with Ranger Allie of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument outside of Ashland, Oregon. 

    After growing up miles away from the San Andreas fault in Southern California , Allie became fascinated by fault systems and mountains. She spent 5 years studying geology in Hawaii before taking her experience as a park ranger to pursue her dream job (at the time) working at the Monterey Bay aquarium as a tour guide. While living and working in Monterey, Allie was able to earn her Certified Interpretive Guide certification solidifying her love of informal education to the public. During her time in that area, she also fell back in love with being outdoors and started leading guided hiking tours through Airbnb experiences. She wanted to take these skills to the next level and search for a way to keep growing. She started backpacking and realized this is where her career path was going. This is how Allie came to be an undergraduate in Outdoor Adventure Leadership at Southern Oregon University. She has earned her Wilderness First Responder certification and is excited to continue to grow as a leader in the outdoor field. She looks forward to the opportunity to travel and gain experience in other cultures.
