In this episode, Courtney talks with Joseph "Whiskey Joe" Ryan. Joseph completed his Appalachian Trail thru hike in 2021 with his best friend, Travis/Roosta. They talk about what life is like before and after a thru hike, Joey's signature "Whiskey Joe" drink and answer the question: "Is it hard to hike with your best friend?"

About Joey Ryan:
He started backpacking at age 11 through his boy scout troop and received inspiration from his uncle to thru hike the AT. He went on his first AT section hike at age 15 and realized that the trail life is where true freedom lies. Since then, a lot has changed, but his love for the outdoors has not. On May 9th 2021, Joey and his lifelong friend Travis/Roosta set out to thru hike the AT. He had taught Travis most of his outdoor skills and shared his dream of being a thru hiker. They stuck together for the entire trail and completed the goal they had originally set, together.

Outdoor Enthusiast/ Eagle Scout

I started backpacking at age 11 through my boy scout troop and received inspiration from my Uncle to thru hike the AT. I went on my first AT section hike at age 15 and realized that the trail life is where true freedom lies. Since then a lot has changed, but my love for the outdoors has not. On May 9th 2021 me and my lifelong friend Travis/Roosta set out to thru hike the AT. I had taught Travis most of my skills and shared my dream of being a thru hiker with him. A decision I am very glad I made. Although Travis and I had plenty of fights; we stuck with each other and completed the goal we had originally set, together.
