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. 


Jun 2, 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 played catch up on a few weeks worth of Notable Hikes. Every week, listeners can tag SLASR in their instagram posts in order to be considered for SLASR’s notable hike of the week. We fell a bit behind over the past few weeks so we thought we would try something new… taking the listeners all over the white mountains on a deep dive of each of the notable tags submitted. This list covers an extraordinarily broad palette of hiking adventures and gives us a glimpse into the crushing-peaks world of our awesome listeners. In additional to the deep dives on the notable hikes, we talk river floating, Summer hiking Events, controversy in Tamworth over the reach the beach relay, a new FKT for the Presidential traverse, Taylor Swift, Alton Weagle Day, Tuckerman Ravine, Lions Head, RedStone Quarry and recent search and rescue news
