Great listen

Great podcast! Just found it and going back through earlier episodes. Maybe consider a Facebook page or some way to contact you guys, I couldn’t find a way on the website. Keep it up.

Getting me through the winter!

Love the content! Being a Montana native who has spent a good amount of time paddling Idaho, it’s nice to hear you guys talk about rivers I’ve ran and giving me some more motivation to stretch my river resume! Lots of good information! Don’t be afraid to dive into those tangents! Much love from Bozeman!
