    So.. the audio on your podcasts seems to be way low with regards to volume. The first podcast was barely acceptable, the 2nd one, extremely difficult to listen to on the daily commute (so difficult I gave up and will try to plug in some earphones at some point to listen). I’d recommend some sort of clip on microphone or a nice boom mic or something.

    I hope you keep the content coming.

    Have a good one,

      Episode 1, yeah…Chauncey was somewhat difficult to discern
      I think they’re making adjustments as 2 & 3 were progressively better

    60 is the new 40
    Episode for older section hikers…
    Levels of difficulty, suggested practice loops AT, PCT
    Preparation…physical, mental & equipment
    Biodegradable adult diapers
    100-500 miles treks
    Where would you send YOUR parents on hike? For maximum effect?
    I’ve played all 3 podcasts for my employees while we prep restaurant food…had to play #2 TWICE! They’re all millennials…and all of a sudden…all they can talk about is backpacking. I walk loose beach sand 4.5 miles w/pack ( every other day) to prep for Shenandoah NP 100 mi in mid May. Run circles round em. Turned 60 yesterday

    Y’all rock!
