great episode. sounds like a fun trip. I did a similar one through kinds canyon in aug. Its fun doing the route planning and navigating on the trip. Breaks up the monotony of straight trail walking

I’ve looked around a couple times and have had little luck finding trip reports detailing the treks. Are they available someplace I’ve missed? The podcast description of this trip is interesting, and I’d be quite curious to read more reports from the participants in other treks.

For some reason BPL details those trips on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram but never get posted here.Oct 21, 2018 at 3:18 pm #3560775casey hardinBPL Member

old paper towel cylinders help those water bladders stay open and dry out after most of the water is wiped out; but really, you gotta leave em hanging around the house to be truly SUL. cheers.Nov 14, 2018 at 2:08 am #3563996David SugenoBPL Member

Another great episode. But it seems odd to me to have a podcast about navigation and not address hand-held gps devices. You note that you don’t need one, since you carry a smart phone. Some of us, believe it or not, do not carry smart phones. That is a minor quibble, intended constructively. I am really enjoying the podcast.
