Video Interview with Ultimate Hiker Andrew Skurka

Last week we had the opportunity to sit down with Andrew Skurka for a live video interview for our STP Live video broadcast. Andrew Skurka has been named Adventurer of the Year by Outside Magazine and National Geographic Adventure as well as Person of the Year by Backpacker. He took time out of his busy schedule to visit the Sierra Trading Post headquarters in Cheyenne, WY. The interview with Andrew Skurka was aired live on our STP Live page and is now available for replay here:

We asked the extreme adventurer about his 4,700 mile Alaska-Yukon Expedition as well as other backpacking trips including the Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail and the Great Western Loop. Andrew shared his experiences and some tips for people just getting started with backpacking. We took some live questions from Twitter and discussed his new book, "The Ultimate Hiker's Gear Guide".

We were extremely happy to bring such an experienced backpacker on the air for a live interview. If you enjoy watching this interview with Andrew Skurka, check back for our future STP Live Events. For more on Andrew Skurka, read our previous blog interview or head over to his website.
