Thanks

It’s not perfect, and covers only east coast areas, but I appreciate the info. and the banter. More trail reports please!

Great Podcast

It would be awesome if you two could get the microphones in sync.
Scott talks low and quiet and his volume trails off as he speaks, and then when Ariana speaks, and I have to turn my volume down.
If I set my volume for Ariana, then I can’t hear Scott.
Keep up the great podcast.

Sincerely,
High Point on the trail
