Navigating wild spaces and the Oregon Desert Trail with Sage Clegg

Back in the early days of my quarantine time, Lori from the Hike podcast reached out about interviewing me about my time on the Oregon Desert Trail. She asked questions that got my mind spinning, and before I knew it I was dreaming back to my early days of hiking, remembering what my feet felt like after a long day of walking on the PCT, how my nerves had me trembling with fear and excitement as I set out on my first thru-hike of the GET, and what it was like to fall in love with backpacking on an Outward Bound course when I was 14.

If you are looking for something to listen to these days, check out Lori’s podcast. She interviews all sorts of people, dispenses advice, and has an approachability for all people who love hiking. It was refreshing to be a part of a podcast that wasn’t focused solely on thru-hiking, and her questions helped me embrace the type of hiking I feel more comfortable with during these COVID times: Short and sweet. Long trails are wonderful, and I hope to get back out for an extended period of time someday, but for now I’m keeping my adventures well within my abilities and short enough to self support. Lori’s enthusiasm for ALL HIKING, no matter the length of time on the trail, really helped me reflect about why I like being outside.

A few of my favorite episodes are:
