On this episode Jester is excited to chat with Patrick Murphy aka "Bacon". He is Jester's first Pacific Crest Trail section hiker on the podcast. Jester and Patrick talk about his attempted thru-hike in 2017, why Patrick calls 2017 the year of "Fire and Ice", and then Patrick answers some True/False questions from Jester about the PCT.
