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. 


Jul 14, 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.

 Welcome to Episode 113 of the sounds like a search and rescue podcast. This week we are back from vacation and joined by Davey Edwards of Open Doors Outdoors. This is a great organization that serves Veterans, their families and young people by taking them into the outdoors for reconnection, healthy activity and healing. Davey and his organization are hosting hikes in the White Mountains throughout the year so we will talk about how you can get involved and support them if interested. We also have Steve from Reklis back for another round. At this point Steve has the honor of being our most frequent quest. He’ll have some beer updates and he has been off backpacking a lot lately so he can give us some recent trip reports. All this plus the Rainbow Family Gathering, Woman punches bear, Lodge2Dodge is back, Stomp has a tech update, recent hikes on Kearsarge North, Morgan and Percival and Peaked Mountains and search and rescue activity is blowing up - rescues on the Gale River Trail, the Belknaps, Mount Jackson, Carter Moriah, Falling Waters, Welch Dickey, and Beaver Brook Trail.
