Garrett Tandy, or Jive Turkey, completed his Appalachian Trail Thru hike in 2021 and decided to take on the Pinhoti Trail next. Garret talks with Courtney about his experiences on this trail that made him rethink his gear, his reason for hiking that trail and ultimately the decision that took him off trail this time. Listen in as Unfiltered and Jive Turkey answer the question, "Is getting off trail a failure?"
Garrett Tandy, Jive Turkey, is an accomplished hiker. After completing his 2021 thru hike of the AT, he started planning his thru hike of the Pacific Crest Trail. As of this recording, he was preparing to begin that hike in April 2022.

I am a 39 year old Thru hiker originally from North Carolina that currently lives in south Florida when not on trail. I have done several small thru hikes including the Bartram Trail in 2010, the Wainwright Trail 2016 and soon to finish the Pinhoti trail. My long distance Thru hikes have included the Appalachian Trail in 2021 and the Pacific Crest Trail in 2022.
