Listener discretion is advised for this ADK Campfire Story (if you listen to these campfire stories with your kids I'd strongly recommend listening without them beforehand to determine if it will be ok for your child.)

Just in time for Halloween I'm back with a spooky Adirondack Campfire Story here on The 46 of 46 Podcast. The local legend of the Faust Lumberjack. This story takes place on the outskirts of Tupper Lake, NY in...

Summer is over and that means the crisp Fall air is upon us. For some that means pumpkin spice and flannel shirts, for others that means it's time to get in the woods and fill the freezer for the winter. It's hunting season.

As a lover of all things Adirondacks and all things outdoors I am excited for hunting season because hunting and hiking have a lot of similarities. Putting on many miles deep in the backcountry in search...

Welcome back to the October Sessions here on The 46 of 46 Podcast! My favorite month of the year.

My guest this week, an avid backcountry hunter, had a terrifying encounter while hunting and fishing deep in the remote northern Adirondacks. He's here to take us th...

In this special-edition episode I decided it was finally time to dedicate a show solely to informing listeners of the rules and regulations regarding camping and campfires in the Adirondack Park. Often there is confusion and a slight ignorance regarding the regulations and I hope to lay those to rest with this episode. Take a listen and see how many of the regulations you already knew and take note of the ones you didn't know.

In this week's trail episode I'll take you with me on my backcountry adventure up Silver Lake Mountain in the Taylor Pond Wild Forest. A mountain the doesn't beat around the bush as it's short, steep, and to the point, leading to "massive" views on a large rock ledge at the summit. It's hard to beat little gems like this peak and it did not disappoint.

In this episode of the Summit Sessions I finally get to share Liz Bacelar's amazing story of becoming an Adirondack 46'er in nine months. Like so many in 2020 the Covid shutdown drastically changed Liz's professional career and life and during that time on a whim she sought out nature and climbed Mt Marcy and the Adirondack Mountains did what the Adirondack Mountains do; captured her heart and completely changed her lif...

A sunny day on the trail had me finally hiking the giant ridge between two big mountains that hover over Lake Placid, NY once and for all. The Moose-Mckenzie Traverse. Despite having climbed these mountains separately many times before, the mysterious 3-mile ridge that connects them both has been calling my name for years, so today was the day.

This week is an episode unlike any other here on The 46 of 46 Podcast as Jonathan Zaharek and I engage in a unique race. A race to the Adirondack Loj in Lake Placid from the Upper Works trailhead. Jonathan would be trail running the 10 miles through the high peaks and I would be driving my van the 68 miles between trailheads. Who will win the Race to the Loj?

In this unique Summit Session I have the privilege of speaking to director and filmmaker, Seth Breedlove, of Small Town Monsters, to discuss his latest film entitled "On the Trail of Bigfoot: The Journey" which came out this week. If you've followed this podcast long enough you'll know I thoroughly enjoy two things; the Adirondacks and Bigfoot, and this documentary combines those two things.

In this new Summit Session Spotlight I'll shine the light on another person who got creative with the outdoors right in their own backyard. This week's spotlight is on Paul Fuzinski, host of the Aptitude Outdoors Podcast, who decided to paddle the 137-mile Maumee River from end to end simply because "he could". Not because it was some sought after local accomplishment to achieve but simply to do something fun and di...

In this first "Summit Sessions Spotlight" episode I'll be putting the spotlight on a man named Brian Shultis who got creative and sought out a new way to explore his home state of New Jersey by climbing all 51 peaks over 1,000' elevation.

In this February episode I'm throwing it back to warmer days; a Summer-time hike where the gang and I set out to bushwhack up the 45th tallest mountain in the state, Green Mountain. Though not an official "High Peak" Green is taller than multiple High Peaks and is a mountain without a trail therefore requiring bushwhacking and off trail navigational skills through its thick evergreen woods to the summit of this mysterio...

Todd is an ADK native, a lifelong hunter, and he is also a member of many conservation organizations and has a bachelors in Natural Resource Management.
