SORT BY Relevancy
Not only is Mount Katahdin, at 5,270 feet, the tallest mountain in the state of Maine, but it also holds another lofty distinction as the northern terminus of the 2160-mile Appalachian Trail. In this In Ice Axe We Trust Podcast, Chris and Matt veer off from their usual West-Coast subject matter and head into somewhat uncharted territory (for them, at least). Luckily, they have the expertise of a highly-qualified guest who knows a thing or two about hiking and climbing in the Northeast to fall back on. The result is 60 minutes of Katahdin and tons of information about this storied peak.
The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step and Brian Caskey with Hiking4Wellness has been on the Appalacian Trail for almost a week now. You can find Brian by on his website at Where's Brian
This is a bit more about his latest journey into the gap taken from his "Honest" post on the blog site he wrote...
One of the most common reasons a person hikes the Appalachian Trail (AT) is to “Walk it Off”.
In my case, one of the goals of the AT hike is to process and move froward from his colorful past after several years of intensive professional help. It is my hope that as I head north to Katahdin, ME, that I’ll drop of the old baggage that I carried and repeated throughout my life. I’m sharing my experiences, because I hope others can learn from my experiences.
Many of the stories shared will be part of my personal experiences, others are the personal experiences of others I’ve meet along my journey. The intent of this blog by Brian “Pooh Bear” Caskey is meant to serve as a forum, we, my friends can come together a change our lives to healthier behaviors one step at a time.
Listen in this week as we find out what the highlights have been, stories about the trail itself and where you can meet up with him this next week.

We're going DIY with our music today on The Down and Dirty with Frank Fontana!
Our first guests are members of the up-and-coming indie band Farraday tagged with creating "a special brand of DIY music." We'll learn about their work ethic and what it takes to make it as musicians in 2011... as well as about how they've played with some of the biggest names in pop rock and punk. We might even talk them into playing a song or two!
In our Craftsmanship segment, we're calling up Katahdin Studio Furniture founder John Stass. He's an expert in his field of furniture making, and has especially made a name for himself by building great pieces for music studios. His celebrity clients include Melissa Etheridge, Andy Griffith, and Conan O'Brien... so he must be doing something right!
We've also got a DIY Disaster story as told by Kristi Gustafson Barlette of the Times Union, and in our Man-Land segment we're discussing great Harrison Ford movie roles with Jimm Fowler of myFiveBest. Now that's a show!
Let's get Down and Dirty...
in Self Help
This is an interesting show for me. Tonight my very good friend, Marissa Cohen will be interviewing best selling award winning author, Nancy Garden.
Marissa is the president and founder of www.HappyGanesh.com and books/ writing are one of her many passions. She decided to interview Nancy a while back and I am blessed and honored to be able to bring both Marissa and Nancy to you this evening.
Nancy Garden http://www.nancygarden.com)is a legend in her own right. She started writing for fun around the age of eight and published her first two books in 1971, 'What Happened in Marston' and 'Berlin: City Split in Two.'She has then gone on to write more than 30 award winning best selling books, and in 2001, was surprised and honored to receive the Robert B. Downs Intellectual Freedom Award for her work defending her novel 'Annie On My Mind' from an attempt to ban it from libraries in a Kansas school district, and for her anti-censorship efforts in general. She got another wonderful surprise in January 2003 when she learned that the Young Adult Library Services Association of the American Library Association had given her the Margaret A. Edwards Award for lifetime achievement in writing books for teens! And after those came more surprises: the Katahdin Award for Lifetime Achievement in 2005 from the Maine Library Association, and induction into the Saints and Sinners Hall of Fame in 2007!
Tune In to Move In today to listen to Nancy Garden herself and Marissa Cohen- both leaders in their own right and followers of their own passions.
