    Fun things to do outside the parks. Riding ATV's, Fly Fishing, Mountain Biking, Kayaking, Rafting, Hiking and the best Golf Courses.

    This podcast covers all the fun things you can do just outside of Grand Teton and Yellowstone parks. We cover how West Yellowstone is the Fly Fishing capital of the world and why movie stars, sports stars and now you flock to West Yellowstone to go fly fishing. We then cover all the golf courses in the area including golfing right in front of the Tetons and how to dodge a moose while golfing and then get you to a great Arnold Palmer designed golf course up at Big Sky. 
    We then cover where to rent and ride ATV's including the new and very safe side by side units including riding on the unbelievable Idaho Dunes where you can ride a bad ass unit up and down 500' tall sand dunes that are only an hours drive from both Jackson Hole and West Yellowstone. 
    Then we jump on a mountain bike and ride along the wildflower strewn meadows of the CDT Trial and we also cover and advanced mountain biking tour to the very seldom seen Goose and Otter Lakes. 
    We then go over the best places to raft.  We cover the  Gallatin River where they filmed the movie A River Runs Through It with Brad Pitt and its super fun rapids topped off with a dip in a hot tub. We also cover a leisurely float down the world famous Madison River with a picnic lunch on its banks along the way and a stop at the Grizzly Bar on the way back to town.   
    We then cover padding your own SUP or kayak on the calm turquoise waters of Wade Lake which look like you are in the Caribbean and then boating on Lake Hebgen where you can find a couple rope swings to get wet on a warm day.  
    We also cover where you can navigate your own kayak down the South Fork of the Madison River as it exits Yellowstone Park and have a great chance to see a moose along the way.  
    We then cover Lake Henry's where I grew up as a kid every summer for 40 years where you can catch a trophy trout that is worth mounting in your home.

    Where to Hot Pot, Get under a Huge Waterfall, Cliff Jump and Swim in Yellowstone Park.

    This podcast covers all the places that you can swim, get in a hot pot, get under a huge waterfall and swim in Yellowstone Park. 

    We cover the Roaring Springs area up by Mammoth/Gardiner and the Firehole swimming area near Madison Junction which are the only two places the NPS advertises on their website that you are allowed to swim in Yellowstone. 

    But for all my Explorers out there, I also cover where you can get right into and underneath 4 huge waterfalls and have their thermally heated water pouring all over you. Where you can soak in a hot pot and where you can cliff jump and do it all legally within the NPS rules. 

    I also cover the best and safest spot to take small kids who want to take a dip while they are on their Yellowstone vacation.   

    I also explain exactly what you are NOT supposed to do so no one gets hurt.

Must have for Yellowstone park.

These podcasts and the guidebook that goes along with them are a total must have for any trip to Yellowstone national park. Not only will teddy get you to the coolest spots in the park (and with the least amount of people), but he also gives you the best Info for lodging, eating, and shopping during your trip. Every place he has sent me both in the park and out have been amazing, I can not recommend it enough, If you what to have a amazing time in Yellowstone make sure you listen and pick up the guidebook.

Don’t go to Yellowstone without listening to these podcasts and buying the book!

We have thoroughly enjoyed listening to these podcasts for the past six months leading up to our trip to Yellowstone and of course purchase the book. I can’t say enough good things about this. My husband and I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to all of the podcasts and reading the book. Our trip has been vastly improved over what we would’ve done if we didn’t have Teddy’s knowledge! We celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary at one of his recommended restaurants and even went out to Wade Lake and kayaked today and it was absolutely beautiful! Thanks for putting this all together for us!
