In addition to the Chocorua preview we welcome Lynn Swezey back to the show to share her recent adventures on the mid state trail and to discuss her disastrous slacklining missteps which has sidelined her from hiking for the foreseeable future. , we have an update on some people summiting mount everest this week, Waterville Valley to host a world cup mogul race, more tick talk, Stomp is going back to his hometown of Lynn to talk about how Lynn is on fire and he will give us a history lesson on Lynn Woods, REI stores are unionizing, a history segment on Colonel Joseph Whipple of Jefferson, NH, Gear reviews, Zealand Road, recent search and rescue news and we welcome a new sponsor - Seek the Peak.
