GHOSTS OF THE WILDERNESS

by Explorer, Naturalist & Author
Daniel Toujours
Daniel is an everyday guy who, like many of us, spends as much time as he can hiking during his evenings, weekends, and days off. Looking to explore more, he set out on a mission to find the iconic, but elusive American animals that he hadn't yet seen in thousands of miles of hiking. Along the way, he discovered history from the American Southwest, stumbled upon artifacts, and learned a little something about life.

HIKING MT WHITNEY IN A DAY with JACK & BETSY NORTHAM

Recorded May 2023 @ Helix Brewing Co.

In this 85 minute video you'll get plenty of valuable information about planning for your round trip on this iconic mountain. Jack and Betsy are veteran Whitney day-hikers and unofficial mountain ambassadors. As of June 2023, perhaps better known as "Crazy Jack" has safely summited the mountain over 200 times in just the past 24 years. Sometimes from start to finish all the way down in the town of Lone Pine. Betsy stops to smell and photograph the flowers so she's only tallied nearly 70 successful climbs. Only?  Once from the East Face technical rock climbing approach. So needless to say they know the mountain like the backs of their hands. They also know first hand the challenges you'll face in the Summer and Fall and how to overcome them. Sometimes that means turning around, and trying another day. Learn when that needs to happen. This video is a must for anyone whose either has their "Whitney Zone" permit in hand or is hoping to snag one at the last minute.  Enjoy, Learn & Be Inspired!

JOURNEYS NORTH ON THE PCT
with BARNEY (SCOUT) MANN
Recorded September 2022 @ Helix Brewing Co.

A16 presents Barney Scout Mann’s most recent presentation for your viewing. In September of 2022 “Scout” spoke to participants of the Make-A-Wish TrailBlaze Backpacking Adventure program.  SCOUT’s storytelling skills and knowledge of the Pacific Crest Trail stand out in this video. He is an accomplished Author, Hiker and Outdoor Advocate. As he tells his story about his passion for the PCT, you can see deep shades of his years as a Camp Counselor.  His enthusiasm for his time on the trail is infectious and his range of experience is vast.  It’s no wonder,…. he’s thru-hiked the PCT (returning to sections multiple times), the Appalachian Trail, the Continental Divide Trail, and countless other trails over the past near 60 years.  And when he skips a beat during his talk, his wife and longtime hiking partner Sandy “FRODO,” chimes in to fill in the gaps. Watching this alone is worth the price of admission.

Scout has been a friend and frequent speaker at A16 for years and we’re delighted to offer you this video in hopes that it will serve to keep you inspired and help educate you as you move along your own natural path.
