Episode 17 – Raising Hikers with Kristin Tillack

This week on the Podcast I jump into a topic that I know very little about, hiking with kids!  My guest Kristin runs the website, RaisingHikers.com and has some great advice and tips on hitting the trails with the younger ones in tow.  I certainly learned a lot and hope you do as well.

Episode 16 – 14ers and Recover with Physical Therapist Cristin McGetrick

I sat down with Physical Therapist Cristin McGetrick and we discussed the differences between working out at sea level and at altitude. She gives some advice, that she forgets to take, on hiking Colorado’s Iconic 14ers and how to prep and recover from strenuous exercise.

Episode 15 – Living the Best life after 40 with Damian Geleyns

This week in the Podcast I got to chat with Damian Geleyns who is the inspiring guy behind the website Legendlifeafter40.com.  Damian lives a life full of adventure and inspires many others as well! We talk about what motivated him to begin his active lifestyle, his goal and mission with Legend Life after 40, his new book, and his new project to help motivate other to live their best life, the 52 experiences challenge. I hope you join us for a bit of inspiration and good living vibes! 

Episode 14 – Change of Plans

It is important to be prepared when you go out on a hike or any outdoor adventure, but some times those plans have to change.  No matter the reason it is important to be prepared with a back up plan.  Sometimes that means not finishing a goal because it isn’t safe. Sometimes you try and you fail a goal and that’s OK.

Episode 13 – Rocky Mountain and Estimations

I took a trip up to Rocky Mountain National Park and saw some wildlife but I’m not sure if it actually counts.  Plus, I discuss estimations on hikes and why everything always seems to be a half mile away.  Finally, the hike of the week takes us to Great Sand Dunes National Park.

Episode 12 – How to Identify and Avoid Bad Weather on the trail.

I had the opportunity to talk to Meteorologist Matt Makens about how to plan for, spot, and react to weather situations while out in nature.  Matt has some great advice on how to make you safer in the outdoors.

Episode 11 Permit Systems and Hoodoos

With more and more parks moving towards a timed entry or reservation system I thought I would give you my opinions on that.  I also have a new hike of the week.  This time making our way to Bryce Canyon and some of the wonders there.

Episode 10 – The Return of the Podcast

After a bit of a hiatus I have returned to the podcast.  I talk briefly about my hiatus, my favorite hike of the week, The 52 Hike Challenge that is so special and motivating to me, and I have a suggestion for a blog that the east coasters might enjoy.
