Love the podcast

As a 21 year old this show gives me hope that I’ll never grow out of drinking beer and being stupid with my friends. Thanks for the laughs!

Best listened to off the trail.

Better than Cats

If you're into hiking, you need to listen to this podcast. The hosts are funny but experienced and professional but relatable people. Although this is not their "day job", it doesn't have the feel of a podcast that is thrown together after hitting record. There's a clear intention that the production should evolve and strive to maintain a higher level of quality, and there seems to be as much respect for and awareness of the craft of broadcasting as there is for hiking (for example, the ep 38 "In The Year 2000...." tease - Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery).

Favourite segments are Trail News and... iTunes Reviews!

This is the best podcast to which I subscribe - it's simply fantastic.

Here are a list of my complaints:
1. I can't find ANY of the gear that they've heretofore reviewed at REI, or on the half-assed-Canadian-version, MEC (rhymes with trek).
2. Need more gear reviews. I'd like to hear more about String, Elastic Bands and, my favourite, ... Mini Binder Clips!
