Love it

I’m 43 years. When I was in high school and college my father and brother and I would drive from Rochester, NY out west and backcountry camping in a different park or parks each Summer. Some of the best times of my life. I now have a six year old son and we’re headed out to Acadia next week for our first National Park adventure. I was searching for podcasts about the parks and found yours, I love it. I enjoy the banter between you too, you provide excellent information, but keep it entertaining. I’m hooked.

Holy Moly!

What a great podcast! Learned so much from these two about the National Parks. What a dynamic exciting couple! Love it when they talk about all their diarrhea and poison Ivey on their way to Southeast Asia! Lay off the Mango shakes Cole! Can’t wait to hear about their African adventure.

Jambo!

Thoughtful insights to parks and issues

These two guys present every national park, which they visited over a year. Their thoughtful planning of the episodes presents a host of issues and topics, each through the lens of two national parks. I’ve really enjoyed binging them at my office job while planning my national park road trip for later this summer. Thanks Switchback Kids!
