Episode Info: In today's episode of Backpacker Radio, presented by The Trek, recorded at Wayfinder, Badger sits down with Weezer, a 2018 PCT hiker with one hell of a story.  We talk about what it's like to thru-hike in the PCT's bubble as a sober person, an incredibly sad life event she had to endure while on trail, and how the trail has played a role in her metamorphosis to a better life.  We get a new thru-hiker of the week and close out with a triple crown of PCT restaurants, joined by special guest Puma.  This is an emotionally dense, yet ultimately, uplifting show.  Subjects discussed in the episode include: Recorded at Wayfinder in Denver Use code "thetrek" at (our link) to save 15% Sawyer's International Website Sawyer Squeeze vs. Sawyer Micro Squeeze Use code "BACKPACKERRADIO5" for 5% off your order at Weezer's top advice for first time thru-hikers Weezer's Big 3 EE Enigma quilt Nemo Hornet 2p Switch from Osprey Aura to My Trail Co Pack Fires on the Pacific Crest Trail in 2018 Her experiences hiking the PCT sober Other notable sober hikers  lint_hikes nic.antoinette Advice for people who want to thru-hike sober Weezer's Instagram: @stephlotus_ Trail Angles on the Pacific Crest Trail by Laura Johnston How to Get to the CDT Southern Terminus by Megan McGowan PCT hiker who ate only McDoubles over 90 mile stretch Thru-Hiker of the Week: @honcebonce Puma's Backpacker Radio Episode Triple Crown of PCT Restaurants Cabazon Casino Buffet Bear Creek Cafe (now The Station Cafe) Stehekin Bakery Buffet at Timberland Lodge Seiad Valley Cafe Paradise Valley Cafe Sonora Cantina (Big Juan burrito challenge) Thai Hachapi Thunder Island Brewing Mom's Pie House Yaks on the 5 Leave us a review on iTunes Danny Devito Song: Walking Slow by Animal Years Check out Trail Correspondents!
