Hiker norms regarding appearance, hygiene and interaction often eliminate some of the class boundaries erected by society, and for the most part, Pacific Crest Trail hikers find the result to be more comfortable and authentic than anything found back home. Episode 6 explores the topic.

Episode 1: Pretty Okay Expectations

The first episode of Between A to B releases a week after the show's host/producer, Josh Ellerbrock, began the Pacific Crest Trail, a 2,650 mile trail on the western seaboard of the continental United States. Recorded and produced while on the trail, the first episode covers the first 100 miles and features interviews with some of the his fellow hikers.

(Hi folks. Admittedly, I'm still getting the hang of recording and producing on the fly like this. It's not polished to how I would like, and I'm pretty annoyed at the amount of wind that's in a lot of the recordings. For the record, I tend to create some solutions here in time for the next episode. With that said, here it is. 

I'm thinking that when I finish up the trail, I might do some re-recordings to get it up to the quality I would like. For now, I got to get off this computer and start back pounding away at the miles. There's a trail out there for me to walk.)
