Chilkoot Pass

Chilkoot Pass

This week’s Outdoor Explorer comes to you from the Chilkoot Trail, the infamous route used by Klondike gold rushers during the late 1800s. As you walk the trail, signs of that crazy gold rush period are evident, but even more impressive is how a century has erased much of the gold rush’s footprint. Host Charles Wohlforth and friends take on the 33-mile trail over five days of hiking.

The Newly-Named ‘Alaska Dispatch News’

The Newly-Named ‘Alaska Dispatch News’

Not very many years ago it was pretty easy to know how the publisher of a newspaper felt about things. All you had to do was look at the editorial
page. But when the Anchorage Daily News was acquired by the Alaska Dispatch, it stopped running its own editorials. Now it is changing its name, and the managers of the Alaska Dispatch News will be taking questions from Alaskans across the state.

Overcoming Nicotine Addiction

Overcoming Nicotine Addiction

Seventy percent of all active nicotine users wish they had never started, and about half tried to quit at least once in the last year. The negative health implications of tobacco use are well documented, and the social acceptance of the practice is waning. Despite the awareness and obvious reasons to quit, most who try find it an exceedingly difficult proposition that often ends in failure. Join Line One host Prentiss Pemberton and guest clinical psyclologist Dr. Ron Ohlson as they discuss the psychological challenges of overcoming nicotine addiction.

Minimizing Your Impact

Minimizing Your Impact

“Leave only footprints” — it’s an ambitious philosophy. Most of us who recreate outdoors like to think we do a good job of this. We pack out our trash. We travel across landscapes with a light footprint. But how good are we? We’ll have some experts in studio to talk about what it really means to leave no trace — from scattering your fire circles to packing out human waste. Minimizing your impact in the outdoors helps ensure others who travel after you get the same wilderness experience.
