Come back Rudy!

I know Rudy has a life outside of hiking, but I miss the more frequent episodes. Love his laid back but enthusiastic style, the kind of a guy you’d like to meet on the trail. The music episodes were fun too. I replay them sometimes when going up a tough section of trail. Thanks Rudy!
