Oregon Field Guide

Tonight, OPB is airing an episode of Oregon Field Guide that features yours truly. Here are all the details:


Kite Festival, Trees and Pollution, Ultralight Hiking


8:30pm March 1st, 2012


Clint “Lint” Bunting came to backpacking late in life, but once he took to it he went “all in”. He has hiked over 14,000 miles, including all of the big American Thru hikes: the Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, Ice Age Trail and the Continental divide Trail, some of them twice! What’s more, he now hikes for weeks at a time with an 8-pound pack, significantly less than the 40-50 pounds many backpackers typically carry.

  1. Tell me the hike that Lint hiked with OPB! I could see Mt. St. Helens and the narrator said it was around Vancouver. More info please.

  2. Wherever this was filmed, the scenery is beautiful! Many of my friends express jealousy – you are living your passion and not many of us can say that. Keep on trekking and enjoying your journey. “Not all who wander are lost.”

  3. Yeah! I want to know where Lint hiked on OPB! I’m from Vancouver and I’m like freaking out trying to find it.

  4. Great segment on OFG Lint! Was a major inspiration and felt like i was watching myself :) great stuff
