Uriel Eisen and Maggie Burke made their own Bikepacking bags and tent to go bikepacking in the Ecuadorian Andes. There were a lot of unknowns going in. Neither of them spoke much Spanish and neither of had done much high altitude activities. It was challenging at times with brutally rugged terrain, but the friendly people and the grandeur of the Andes made it incredibly rewarding for these two! Check it out.

Graham Hiemstra is on the show today to fill us in on bikepacking the Oregon Outback Trail.

From www.oregonbikepacking.com "We think this is hands-down the best bikepacking route in Oregon.  Starting in Klamath Falls near the California border, you get to traverse the entire length of the state on lightly traveled roads including a slice of route’s namesake area – the Oregon Outback – a dusty, remote portion of the state populated primarily by coyotes and rattlesnakes. Expect desolation, extremely limited water and services, and some of the most beautiful riding anywhere.  But don’t expect it to be easy; this is one of our most difficult, committing routes. Highlights include the OC&E Woods Line State Trail, 30 oz. steaks at the Cowboy Dinner Tree, Fort Rock, the Crooked River, the Ochoco Mountains, and amazing views of the Deschutes and Columbia Rivers."

Paula ‘Must Try Harder’ McGuire isn’t exactly your average adventurer. She doesn’t even own a sleeping bag. In fact, Paula spent her early years hiding from life and seeking better places to hide, eventually finding her world shrinking to the confines of her own home without an escape route. Thirty years of crippling social anxiety will do that to a girl. Adventure became Paula’s personal therapy in 2012 and, ever since, she has terrified herself daily in the name of recovery. So far, it’s working.

Luke Kloberdanz visits with Curt about his thru hike of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail, a thousand-mile footpath that highlights these landscape features as it travels through some of the state’s most beautiful natural areas. The Trail is entirely within Wisconsin and is one of only eleven National Scenic Trails.

But the Ice Age Trail is more than a path through the woods. It is a place for mental and physical rejuvenation, a place to unwind after a hard day and enjoy the landscape of Wisconsin. More than 1 million people use the Ice Age Trail each year to hike and snowshoe, to backpack, to disconnect and reconnect.

Behind the scenes, a vibrant community of volunteers across the state work to build and maintain the Trail, making it one of the country’s best hiking experiences.

In 1982, at the age of just twenty-three and halfway through her architecture studies, Elspeth Beard left her family and friends in London and set off on a 35,000-mile solo adventure around the world on her 1974 BMW R60/6. Reeling from a recent breakup and with only limited savings from her pub job, a tent, a few clothes and some tools, all packed on the back of her bike, she was determined to prove herself. She had ridden bikes since her teens and was well traveled. But nothing could prepare her for what lay ahead. When she returned to London nearly two and a half years later she was stones lighter and decades wiser. She'd ridden through unforgiving landscapes and countries ravaged by war, witnessed civil uprisings that forced her to fake documents, and fended off sexual attacks, biker gangs and corrupt police convinced she was trafficking drugs. She'd survived life-threatening illnesses, personal loss and brutal accidents that had left permanent scars and a black hole in her memory. And she'd fallen in love with two very different men. In an age before email, the internet, mobile phones, sat-navs and, in some parts of the world, readily available and reliable maps, Elspeth achieved something that would still seem remarkable today. Told with honesty and wit, this is the extraordinary and moving story of a unique and life-changing adventure.
