Great while driving

I love radio the problem is that I drive from state to state and I lose reception. I finally found what I was looking for. I am a hiking newbie and this information is great.! I cannot stop listening.

Guns vs bear spray

The gentleman speaking about guns not necessarily being affective seems to have a bias. He speaks about how easy and convenient the spray is while saying the gun is strapped over the shoulder, is heavy and so on. Who hikes while carrying the bear spray on their finger at the ready?? No one. The gun would be just as easy to get to especially in the case of the victim here, carrying it in a holster at his side. And he had both and he lives in this environment. Don’t discount having the gun....carry both. Great podcast, loving the episodes even though it takes a tragedy to be able to tell the stories. Great lessons learned.

all the drama

Heart wrenching, suspenseful tales from real world scenarios and people. Would be nice if it concluded with a few applicable tips/takeaways.
