#5: Triple Crowner Compares the AT vs PCT vs CDT
Triple Crowner, "Rusty", talks about the three iconic long distance trails in the United States - the Appalachian Trail or AT, the Pacific Crest Trail or PCT and the Continental Divide Trail or CDT. These trails are collectively known as the Triple Crown of Hiking. Eric hiked the AT in 2015, the PCT in 2016, and the CDT in 2017. Combined this is just shy of 8,000 miles. We are going to hear a little bit about Rusty’s experience as well as nerd out on comparing the three trails in several categories: scenery, wildlife, trail conditions, weather, gear differences, hiking culture, resupplying and more. If you’re considering a thru-hike, but not quite sure which trail to hike, hopefully this episode will help you decide. Hosted by Chris Cage with Greenbelly Meals (https://www.greenbelly.co/).

Today I sit down with Mike Pfotenhauer, founder of the iconic pack company company, Osprey Packs (https://www.osprey.com/).
