#36 | Jon "Airborne" Schwarze on His PCT Yo-Yo

May 3, 2019
128 min

Despite this being his first thru-hike, last year Jon "Airborne" Schwarze became just the 5th person to yo-yo the Pacific Crest Trail (to thru-hike the same trail in both directions in one year or less).  We go balls deep on everything that went into this trek, including the differences between his NOBO and SOBO hike, his gear, his bizarre and demanding diet, what it was like meeting Scott Williamson, and how his background (despite having limited backpacking experience) played a major role in his success.
