Backpacker Radio #142 | Peter Bergman

In at this time’s episode of Backpacker Radio offered by The Trek, we’re joined by Peter Bergman.  In a nutshell, Peter is the last word wildcard.  His mountaineering resume, which features a accomplished part hike of the PCT and a cross nation hike from his entrance door in Denver to Mt. of the Holy Cross- doesn’t even start to inform his story.  We study in regards to the lifetime of an artwork professor, a few of most ridiculous initiatives, which toes the road between artwork and prank, and his newest launch, PaCT, a collection of initiatives associated to his two-part part hike of the PCT, the primary chunk as a 23-year-old, and the remaining at twice the age of 46.  Chaunce and Badger had been completely entertained throughout this one, you can be too.

We wrap the present with a particular triple crown, Elise version, some shock birthday needs to Chaunce – together with a voicemail that had us LMAO’ing, and far more.
