In Episode 24, we satisfy a listener request for a show on backcountry basics. Recorded at a remote campsite on the Chattooga River, I speak with Therm Rider and The Camel about some of our rookie mistakes in the backcountry and smart things that we’ve done since our first ventures in to the wilderness.
“Backcountry 101” is the first installment in this mini-series where we sit around the campfire and discuss the fundamentals of backpacking. In this episode, we talk about the times when we’ve taken too much, hiked too far, or put members of our group in terrain that was way above their skill level. Enjoy the show and have a laugh at our expense. And yes, this is a photo from the hike with “Bob”!
