Twenty years on we speak to a pioneer of ultralight hiking, Henry Shires. His revolutionary combination of homemade Tarp and Tent was tested during his own 1999 hike, then grew into his business.
Henry has been a Board Member of the PCTA and back in Episode 4, he’d shared his assessment of the threats to the future of the trail. We discuss how accurate were those predictions and how home-sewn shelters have grown into an international business.
New episodes daily - and PCTpodcast.com you can buy a download of our trail journal and see photos from the series.
There are no adverts, but it costs money to produce, host and distribute. So if you enjoy it, and could help contribute towards the ongoing hosting costs, please buy me a virtual coffee - just a small payment that helps.
Thanks to TarpTent.com for their support during our hike and with this series.
