Ratatouille visits Casa de Luna and talks with Terrie Anderson, trail angel extraordinaire. A 10-mile drunken night hike tests Ratatouille’s ukulele abilities. A podcast rivalry escalates into war. The debut of Hiker Haikus.
For 18 years, Donna and Jeff Saufley hosted PCT hikers at their home in Agua Dulce, California. They take the time to share their story on Trailside Radio, talking about how 50 hikers per season grew to 50 hikers per night, and why they made the decision to close Hiker Heaven.
Ratatouille encounters a rattlesnake and watches other hikers hitchhike past him. Interviews include a part-time trail angel, a group of tired hikers, and a young military veteran hiking as a way to cope with PTSD. A hiker entertains others at bedtime with his flute playing, and Ratatouille performs an original song about the PCT with his newfound ukulele skills.
