Ogden Outdoor Adventure Show 277 - PCT

Bryden Bowley through-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail

Recorded in the GEAR:30 lounge, this episode includes an exclusive interview with Ogden resident, snowboarder and editor of #RideLocalFirst the film, and PCT (Pacific Crest Trail) through-hiker, Bryden Bowley. We covered all the things that can kill you on the PCT, a rough number two incident involving red ants, his best piece of gear so far on the over 1,000 miles hiked, and the one piece of gear he ditched early on.

Ever curious about through-hiker nutrition? Bryden filled us in on his diet, which isn't that great.

We're hoping to catch up with Bryden each remaining month of his trek from Mexico to Canada. His insight and humor are fantastic!

The local McDonald's in Bernie, California, provided free WIFI for Bryden during this FaceTime, and it wasn't the best connection, so gaps of silence have been edited.  

Here's the list we read to Bryden during the interview: 17 Things Scarier than Bears on the Pacific Crest Trail.
