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 are joined by Carly Bascom from the New England Healing Sports Association. Carly joins us to talk about adaptive sports and how listeners can support the organization. In addition to this segment we will have updates on flooding in the White Mountains and some advice on how to monitor river flow as part of your weather assessment while planning hikes. We will also dive into a little white mountain history and explain how river flow gauge measurement was the catalyst for the actual creation of the White Mountains, all this plus Stomp provides his lesson plans on all things 10 Essentials, another look at the story of missing hiker Stephon Porith Sou, Hiker spotted in their underwear in CT, buried treasure, hiker gets impaled and needs a rescue, and more mountain lion attacks.
