The Bobsie Bums and the Appalachian Trail - The Naked Truth About Old Friends and Thru Hiking

This weekend I had the pleasure to visit with two of my old thru-hiking buddies from the eighties - Bruce and Melanie Thomson - trail name The Bobsie Bums. We hadn't seen each other in nearly 20 years, and the weekend was full of great rememberances, reading of old letter, etc.
I brought along my digital audio recorder to do a little interview with them about their thru-hiking experiences on the Appalachian Trail as well as the Pacific Crest Trail. I haven't gotten everything spiffed up for an official podcast yet, but I'm going to provide the links below to the two segments for now. Expect this post to be much more fleshed out in the near future - Your Humble Blogger

    Hey Chip,
    just showing my mom your blog...The podcast turned out pretty good (I think the beer helped!) You definitely are a natural interviewer and know how to make your interviewees sound decent (thank you!)
    Loved spending the weekend with you and Katie!
