What are your travel plans? Maybe not much or something pretty local? Maybe something in the backcountry, our best bet as we hopefully wind down on this COVID era. I miss going to Canada, big time. I miss international travel. I will say though that I have found one silver lining in this time. I have discovered many spots within a five-hour drive, of where I live. I am guessing that might be the same for you.
In that vein, I wanted to replay an episode from years ago you might have missed (or could use a refresher on what to carry in your backpack.
Jeff Thompson, who is a ski patroller and also executive director at Idaho Panhandle Avalanche Center, shares with us what he takes on a summer backcountry trip. I’m guessing most of you will be camping and traveling nearby, and the summer backpack, particularly for the overnight backpack, I should say. It’s always nice to hear what other people carry just in case, including the Oh shit jacket which I adopted after having this conversation with him, so I will leave it at that and learn about what Jeff Thompson carries when he goes camping in the wilderness.
With that, let’s listen in and gear up for what’s next.
