G.O. 044 – Sarah Tiedemann

G.O. 044 - Sarah Tiedemann, Hesitant Hiker

Sarah Tiedemann grew up indoors in New Jersey living out her childhood adventures in books while developing an intense fear of the unknown world around her. A move to Hawaii at 17 introduced her to the wonders of nature. Her anxiety still remained, but the rewards outweighed the fear and the Hesitant Hiker was born. Sarah recently self-published a book sharing her approach to combatting these fears and why it is a battle worth waging. She and Jason met in Mercer County Park, NJ to discuss the powers and weaknesses of fear.

G.O. 031 - Roundtable: Solo Backpacking

Some choose to travel into the wilderness alone. Jason discusses the pros and cons of solitary backpacking with previous show guests: Shawnte, Pamela, and Alden in between sips of cocoa and bouts of laughter. They review the whys, the dangers, loneliness, planning, packing, navigation, hiker stink, 29 cat holes, and the rancid aroma of bear saliva.

G.O. 007 - Caught on Johanna Turner’s Cameras

Johanna Turner is a patient person. Hiking miles into the wilderness periodically to maintain camera gear that may never capture a single image of wildlife requires patience. It also rewards hard-work and dedication. Only camera trappers ever capture imagery of wildlife in their natural environment unmolested by human interaction. Jason followed along one morning as Johanna tended her cameras along with her friend, Dan and her dog, Ripley. They discussed the pursuit of camera trapping, its challenges, and rewards.

G.O. 006 – Dusty Hulet

G.O. 006 - Dusty Hulet, Yellowstone Legend

Dusty Hulet may not have been born in a tent—perhaps to his father’s chagrin—but he did grow up never missing a Boy Scout camp-out. Being raised in an active outdoor family laid a foundation for adventure in him that continues to grow. He makes a living as an entrepreneur and filmmaker, occasionally crawling through bear dens, and pursues a variety of activities on the side. He can be found in the snow or in raging rivers, perhaps even on horseback. He was once responsible for the lives and good times of many vacationers seated on his Alaskan tour bus and is to blame for the temporary sitings of the elusive Yellowstone Gorilla. Jason found him momentarily in Liberty Park in Salt Lake City where they chatted about his life instead of allowing him to prepare for a trip to Haiti.
