GRETEL SCARLETT aka AMERICAN IDOL
American Idol, known off trail as Gretel Scarlett, is an actress, singer, dancer and successful Pacific Crest Trail thru hiker from Australia. During this episode, we discuss the unique challenges of being a SOBO PCT thru hiker, a woman and a non-American on the trail. And how a little DIY ingenuity to stay warm created the ‘Tyvek Burrito’.
Gretel’s trail stories and advice was so in-depth that we talked for an extended period of time, giving us two full episodes. Watch for the second part of my conversation with Gretel -
