I spit fiyah ,

Keep it going!

One of the few non gun crazy Dumbass American yet "outdoor" related podcasts left.

All about human powered activities and the outdoor industry as well. I've been introduced to products and companies but I am even more thankful for the coverage of trails and routes I had otherwise not known of or taken note of elsewhere. TGO!!
