Asher 'AM Fog' McGlothlin

I met AM Fog (aka @ashermcglothlin) on the Appalachian Trail in 2018 when we were both making our way Northbound through the Smokies.

Asher is a musician, grad student, and thruhiker. He just released a new EP called “Smothered, Lovered, and Covered” which is available now on his website and will be available on all streaming platforms on July 30th!

+

This episode is a simple shooting the shit trail stories episode much like the classic Podcast Here episodes from our origin. We talk about the blizzard we trekked through in the Smokies, the moment you realize you can hike your own hike, the powerful confidence thruhiking gives you, the best trail magic ever, and so much more.

+

I hope this episode helps you reminisce or look forward to your first thruhike. Maybe it’ll even help you avoid our novice mice mishaps and pack enough food!

+

One thing that hit me from this episode is when Asher said “Even on the hard days there was never anywhere else I’d rather be. That is a hard feeling to recapture.”

+

Give it a listen along with all of our other episodes from season 3 on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Play, or wherever you get your podcasts!

+

P.S. Thanks for all of your patience with this season’s new host and upload limits! We’ll get it right next week!

+

We’ll be rebooting our Patreon next month with tiers starting as low as $3/mo! I’d love it if you’ll join us over there for some bonus content, merch, and virtual community gatherings! Stay tuned for its release on Thursday, August 6th.
