Episode 040: Our crazy hike, wet-out, canoeing the Yukon and the Worlds worst hiking partners - HIKE OR DIE Outdoor Adventure Podcast

March 27, 2022

We recently embarked on our wettest hike in a long time. I'm talking, so wet that roads were flooding and campsites were closing. We tell you all about it in this episode, including yet another leech encounter for Craig, and it's a good one too.

We also share some news on the third woman to complete all 158 summits of the Able Mountains, a crazy story of mountain climbers in the 70s when a Drug Plane crashes into a Yosemite lake. We also discuss "wet-out" in your rain gear and how to fix it.

And if you aren't sure if you are considered one of the 17 worst hiking partners in the world, then you better take a listen to put your mind at ease, or at least help you change your ways.

It doesn't have to be as intimidating as it first appears and we give plenty of insights and tangible advice based on what has worked for us in the past with our own families.

Episode 032: Nick Monaghan - Insect Macro Photographer - HIKE OR DIE Outdoor Adventure Podcast

Episode 032: Nick Monaghan - Insect Macro Photographer - HIKE OR DIE Outdoor Adventure Podcast

March 1, 2021

When Nick Monaghan enters the Australian wilderness, he moves at a different pace to what you and I would. Hiking to him is not about the destination, the distance or vast mountain ranges. It's about discovery in a much smaller world.

Nick is a macro-photographer of insects, focused more on what's hiding behind a leaf or within the bark of a tree and it's surprising what he can reveal from within a relatively small area of bushland or rainforest.

Nick has had his work published in several books and papers and in this episode we're lucky enough to have him join us and reveal all the secrets and rewards of his work in the tiny world of insects.

Episode 031: Paul Barach - Hiking the Shikoku Pilgrimage  - HIKE OR DIE Outdoor Adventure Podcast

Episode 031: Paul Barach - Hiking the Shikoku Pilgrimage - HIKE OR DIE Outdoor Adventure Podcast

January 31, 2021

Paul Barach is able to undertake (and complete) enormous tasks including writing his own book (Fighting Monks and Burning Mountains: Misadventures on a Buddhist Pilgrimage), hiking the PCT and cycling across the United States.

The list of Paul's amazing mental and physical feats is long but probably the most unusual to the general hiking community is his completion of the entire 1,200 kilometres (750 mi) journey of the Shikoku Pilgrimage in Japan.

Paul reveals to us his passions, what motivates him to start such challenging adventures and his approach to completing them. As with any big adventure, Paul's journeys do not always go smoothly and in this podcast format we were able to explore those in detail with him.
