    Ep 57 Brad Brooks of Argali Outdoors

    Brad is a Idahoin family man who craves time in outdoors. Like many he started with little gear and knowledge and forged a path to sucess in the mountains.
    He is passionate about sharing his adventures on Youtube. All of his work is fantastic but, I consider his video of his Frank Church Wilderness to trully capture all the facets of backcountry hunting.
    Bard is a owner in Argali Outdoors which are making some incrdibly lightweight backcountry tents. Well worth a look at.
    Thanks for listening. Dave

    Gypsy Nomad Outdoors

    After a completing her Degree, Lora Young decided to head south from her native USA to the lands Down Under.
    Here began adventure hunting in lands from rugged alpine mountains to tropical wetlands. What awaited her in the future unknown.
    Once again, I see the gift of what hardship can bring; the objectivity, and clarity of mind and purpose that drives many to fight for what is most important and relish it all.
    It can't be bought no matter the personal treasures one has amassed.
