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. 


Aug 18, 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 welcome back Brittany from the Taylor James Steeves foundation. Brittany is gearing up for another event to support the foundation so we reconnect to find out how we can help out. There is drama in the Himalayas - a sherpa is left dead on K2 and western climbers are seen climbing over the body, lots of back and forth on the incident so we will break it down. Recent hike on the Moat Mountain range, a tragedy in Franconia Falls, a fatality on Mount Madison and catching up on a lot of recent search and rescue news.
