Sounds Like A Search And Rescue Podcast

Welcome to the Sounds Like a Search and Rescue Podcast where we discuss all things related to search and rescue in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. 


Apr 28, 2023 

 Welcome to the Sounds Like a Search and Rescue Podcast! Also known as SLASR. Join an experienced search and rescue volunteer and his friend as they discuss all things related to hiking and search and rescue in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

This week, we welcome our friend Cathalynn Labonte-Smith. Cathalynn is an author who has recently published her new book - Rescue Me - Behind the Scenes of Search and Rescue. Rescue Me takes the reader behind the scenes of some of North America’s riskiest search and rescue operations, sharing real life stories as told by volunteer members of search and rescue teams. A lot of the topics and stories in the book align with what we often discuss on this podcast so we are excited to dig into some details about this book and learn more about Cathalynn’s journey writing it. All this plus,  some updates on the latest events going on around new england related to hiking and search and rescue, REI’s flagship Portland, OR store is closing, a look back at a well known Mount Everest rescue, some recent hike updates from Stomp and Mrs. Stomp, and a drone is used to locate the remains of a missing person in Hampstead, NH.
