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 16, 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 are joined by Gwenn Stratton. Gwenn is a prolific local hiker who can often be seen along the steeper and most challenging trails in the White Mountains and beyond. Gwenn is kind enough to sit in and talk about some of her favorite hikes, she will share her tips for route planning and will take us along to some of the slides, gullies and tougher routes in the Whites. We will also talk about hiking with kids and many other topics.  All this plus we recap the 48 Peaks - Longest Day event at Reklis, It’s bike week in New Hampshire, barefoot hiking, dogs eating stuff they are not supposed to eat, backpack advice and recent search and rescue news including multiple rescues in New Hampshire, kids surviving 40 days in the jungle and a hiker goes missing just in time to miss his court date
