In this episode, Jonathan and Mark chat with another hiking dad, Tim Watson, who spends his time documenting his experiences hiking and cycling on YouTube when he’s not spending time with his family. After some friendly banter about not using an underquilt (spoiler alert), there is some interesting discussion about Tim’s gear and then his Ramen Bomb. Finally, everyone finishes up with a quick comment about their hygiene kits.

After the interview with Tim, Jonathan and Mark chat about powering their gadgets on the trail, and we finish up the podcast with Spiguyver answering a couple of great questions on the “Hanging Out” segment.

In this post, Jonathan and Mark interview Frozen, a backpacker and popular vlogger currently hiking the AT. We chat with Frozen about some of his experiences planning for a long hike, along with some of the things that have happened to him along the way (hint: don’t put a tent in a lean-to). We finish up with a quick chat about stuff we hate while camping.

After that, Jonathan and Mark chat about the way hammock camping has become a much more international pastime, and how many people from all over the world are adding hammocks to their kit. Thanks to Benjamin Kos for the great links!

Finally, Gresh and Spiguyver discuss trail safety, bug nets, and riff on ridgelines.
