44 Mailbag!

53 minutes

It’s time again for our monthly mailbag episode where we answer questions from our listeners about national parks and other public lands, as well as questions about gear, hiking trails, and a broad range of travel-related topics.


Some of the questions/topics we discuss in this episode:

  • What kind of backpacks we use on our hikes
  • Whether or not mosquito headnets really work
  • Why we don’t use hydration bladders in our backpacks
  • Which parks are good for small children
  • Why we each have our own passport stamp books
  • Whether or not we’ll be heading back to the Chilkoot Trail again this summer
  • Driving a remote and rugged dirt road in Capitol Reef National park
  • Advice and tips for older hikers
