I bought this radio thinking it would last at least 6 months while thru-hiking the buckeye trail. Almost 2 years later and it is still working! The only weird thing is it doesn’t pick up any radio stations. It just plays recordings of 2 people discussing hiking and stuff. I tried returning it to REI but they had no idea what I was talking about and kicked me out of the store.

Anyway, 5 stars. One of you should really consider hiking the AT some day.

Whenever I'm having a good day, my mood is slightly above average, or things are going somewhat well for me in life in general, all I have to do is listen to Backpacker Radio and I can be miserable again. Their mindless dribble, meaningless banter and horrible voices bring me back down to normal and I can go about my grouchy slothlike day in peace.

Still waiting for the day Zach hikes the AT so I can read his book.

Seriously though, Chaunce & Badger run the best hiking podcast out there. Tons of great info and amazing guests. Thouroughly enjoy listening to every episode. Keep it up.

I love this podcast and look forward to hearing it every week. It gives me all the feels and keeps the thru hiking itch both scratched and itching like crazy at the same time. Keep up the great work!
