Doing Stuff Outdoors-90



Today another episode of Trail Magic with Lorne Blagdon. We’ll hear about an AT tradition where thru hikers hike naked on the first day of summer. So did Lorne shed his clothes? You’ll have to listen to find out. He also has encounters with a horse on the trail, a horse that kept following him. Also the joys of Tennessee whiskey, sleeping in the highest shelter on the trail and how to hang your pack to keep the mice away.

The Canyon Man shares a recent family adventure to the Buffalo National River in Ponca, Arizona. Gidds scolds Gary about his tendency to enjoy ‘little beers’ while he tries to shed the fat. We’ll look at a theory on why cross country skiing isn’t more popular and a family from Maine tells us about a 7-day, backcountry spring skiing trip in Gaspe, where the snow is still deep.

Music on the show from the Skating Teenagers and Sean Fournier. Email Gary with your outdoor adventures at
