In this episode, Courtney chats with Andrew Forestell, aka Reptar. Andrew shares some of his craziest adventures and together they answer the question: How is being miserable fun?!
Andrew "Reptar" Forestell is an entrepreneur, photographer, and explorer on a journey to pursue sheer adventure and keep nature clean. After completing a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail (AT) in 2015, Reptar realized he can do more than just share his journey; he can inspire a movement. Reptar self-released The AT Experience, which soared through community theaters and inspired many to take chances and live their lives to the fullest.
Subsequently, Reptar set out to hike the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) in 2017 and joined forces with the Granite Gear Groundskeepers to help clean up trash on long trails across the United States. After hiking more than four-thousand miles, Reptar stays determined to keep his head high and his eyes forward.
In 2020, he was featured on Discovery Channel's TV show "Naked and Afraid", and since then his heart and mind are the true lens of his camera. Reptar is currently immersed in creating a second film, The PCT Experience, as well as creating a survival game called Far North.
