Ep. 327: Triple-Triple Crown Thru Hiker with 30,000 Miles to His Name - Lint Bunting


Thru Hiking any one of the Triple Crown trails is a mighty feat in and of its own. Then you have the Triple Crown itself once you've successfully thru hiked all three trails. Now, imagine having completed all three Triple Crown trails three times each! Clint "Lint" Bunting is one of three people in the world known to have accomplished this monumental goal and he is on the show today to give us a taste of his 30,000 miles on the trail.

  1. Lint mentioned beating plantar fasciitis. As one who battles this myself, I was wondering what he did to overcome it? Love the podcast. Thanks. Mark R.

    1. Thanks for listening Mark. We'll check with Lint and see if he's got some suggestions for you. We'll put his response in these comments.

    2. Hi Mark-
      I had plantar fascitis many years ago, and at the time I didn't even know what it was. All I knew was that it hurt so bad that SOMETHING was wrong with my body. Since I didn't know what was causing my pain, I didn't know how to alleviate it...so I just hiked through it. Probably not the smartest way to deal with PF.

      My PF eventually went away on its own. How I was able to keep hiking big mile days with PF, I'll never know...except that I'm too stubborn to know when to quit.

      I'd suggest researching online for ways to combat PF. Nowadays I hike in trail running shoes and don't even get blisters...let alone PF.

      Good luck!

    3. Thanks, guys. I thought there might be a magic solution. I suspect conditioning/toughening the feet and perhaps lightening the load are the best remedies.
