Born and raised in the woods of south Mississippi, I am a outdoor lover. Camping, fishing and kayaking have been a big part of our life. Back packing? Never crossed my mind until recently. So many hiking trails from south to north Mississippi. I really think my wife and kids will enjoy it. Thanks for the great info. Shannon H.

What a Fun way to learn

I love this podcast. Scott and Arian give great information in a fun, way that targets newbies and experienced hikers. Some of the other podcasts are more about guys talking about their adventures and it’s more about them than it is about educating. Some people really think that their conversations are interesting but they’re not. This podcast is about sharing pertinent information, keeping you laughing, and stressing the importance of safety. They also have guests that have good info. Give it a listen!
