Your Vacations From Walking Are Also Hiking (episode 35)

This week, we recorded on one of Lindsay's rest days, following a week in which she was mistaken (?) for a hippie, was given an unexpected tour of fossil country, battled a steep mountain, and put some money on Surfing at the Bar, Vernon the Cat, and Impulsive Kate. The question of what Hogwarts house a dog might belong to is also addressed.

We talked a bit about the Spoke'n Hostel in Mitchell, Oregon, which Lindsay recommends checking out and supporting if you find yourself in the area!

This episode includes an audio clip from a Vox story about the 2016 standoff between the Bureau of Land Management and some Oregon ranchers.

Lindsay is also on facebook!

You Might Be The Captain, But She's The Admiral (episode 33)

By the time you read this, Lindsay may already be in Oregon, the final state of her journey!

This week, Lindsay finds a friend's hat, gets a permanent reminder of her trip, goes to the movies, and hears some very interesting stories from Captain Harry of the Deadliest Catch.

One place Lindsay went to eat this week was Even Stevens, a chain of sandwich shops in Idaho, Arizona, and Utah that donates food to local non-profits. See if there's one near you!

Whistle Pigs (episode 32)

This week, Lindsay has a hearty breakfast, organizes a search for a sports bra, and hears about a life-changing car breakdown. We also talk about the bonus episode with Barbara Lee (which I released last Friday and is at and on the podcast feed).

The whistle pig sounds in this episode were taken from this video:

Meeting Lindsay and Logan (bonus episode 31a)

In this bonus episode, I talk to Barbara Lee, who encountered Lindsay, Logan, and Cynthiana on a campground in Escalante, Utah last month.

If you think that America's national monuments are as important as Barbara and Lindsay do, then please consider taking action to protect them.  You can use this form to send a message to the Secretary of the Interior about it!

Kayaks and Hot Springs, Not At The Same Time (episode 31)

This week, Lindsay encounters friendly towns and less friendly towns, goes kayaking in the rain, and gets a little rest and relaxation in some hot springs, while Cynthiana the dog takes an unexpected swim. Lindsay's cell phone reception was kind of rough on this one -- sorry!

Look for a bonus episode in a few days, in which a special guest describes meeting Lindsay and Logan in Escalante, Utah last month.

X-Rays and Lost Dog (episode 29)

This week, Lindsay goes to urgent care, is separated from and then reunited with Cynthiana the dog, and takes some much-needed R&R.

You can see the video of Lindsay falling down a ravine at .

If you missed the episode where Lindsay and Logan talked about their decision to stop walking together, you can find it at

Lindsay and Logan Part Ways (bonus episode 28a)

This is the lightly-edited audio from a Facebook Live event in which Lindsay and Logan discussed their parting of ways, and asked each other questions about their journeys and related matters. You can see the video, and hear the unedited audio, at .

We also plan to record a regular episode, and hopefully it will be out in the next day or two.

The Curse of Arches National Park (episode 27)

In this short episode, Lindsay and Logan rent a car so they can quickly visit a bunch of national parks and monuments, Cynthiana the dog gets to spend some quality time at a gas station, and Lindsay falls into a ravine. (She got better.)

If you think that America's national monuments are as important as Lindsay does, then please consider taking action to protect them.  You can use this form to send a message to the Secretary of the Interior about it!

Lindsay is also looking for someone who might be willing to transport Cynthiana from Salt Lake City to Prague, Oklahoma.  If you might be able to help with that, please get in touch with Lindsay on facebook!  You can find her at .

Take It Easy (episode 26)

This week, Lindsay and Logan continue walking through Arizona, and they address an important question: What's the biggest threat on a cross-country walk: mountain lions, human beings, or rotisserie chicken?

We mention a couple of facebook videos in this episode. One's a little music video:

and the other is a video that Logan made before he met up with Lindsay, one evening when a wild animal was prowling outside his tent:

Even If You Win, You Lose (episode 22)

This week, Lindsay checks in from Amarillo, Texas, where she is preparing to forge on to Albuquerque, New Mexico, about 300 miles away. It might take a little while to walk there.

Since the last time we talked, she's gotten tips on stealth camping from another long-distance walker, experimented with Facebook Live, and visited a Cadillac graveyard. We talked about those and other adventures, and we also discovered that we have remarkably similar advice to give to people contemplating entering a food-eating contest or engaging of street harassment of women: Don't.

Not mentioned on the podcast: Lindsay's hometown newspaper, the Landmark, recently ran a story about her, which you can read at .

Entering Texas (episode 21)

This was recorded the morning after Lindsay crossed the Texas border! She broadcast the crossing via Facebook Live -- you can see the resulting video at .

She also met and walked with another cross-country hiker -- Donald Akins, an ex-Marine who is carrying a large cross to the west coast.  In this episode, she talks about that, the further adventures of Cynthiana the dog, and the unexpected link between hikers and truckers, among other things.  She also addresses a frequently asked question: How many pairs of shoes has she gone through?
