Great podcast and host!

Love listening! You add a depth outside of the White Mountains with hiking, SAR and so much more. Would be nice if you actually listened to your listeners…. Like me 🤪🤪

HV Hikermom ,

Thank You to Inside the Line and the Rangers

Your podcast about the extremely difficult rescue on Blackhead Mountain, and the rangers’ willingness to discuss the details, in order to educate hikers, was sobering and very helpful.

The basics of being prepared, checking the weather, and, above all, being willing to turn back, if there are concerns, are something we all need to be reminded of.

FANTASTIC!

I stumbled across this podcast when it popped up in some "suggested viewing", and I'm so glad I did! It's a generous introduction to hiking in the Catskills, with info on where the jewels are as well as where the risks are. The host and his friends are fluent in the region, seem like fun-plus-nice types, and are not too outdoor-bro-ish. I used to hike a lot in the Catskills with a group out of NYC, and am just returning to exploring the area as a solo and more experienced outdoors-person. So the insights here are right on time for me; I'd been listening to it while running and finally realized that I need to be able to take some notes from the episodes. If you want to get an overview of how to get the most out of hiking the Cats, this seems like a great resource.
