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. 


Oct 6, 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 our friend Ethan Banks. Ethan is a prolific trail runner and hiker in the Whites. He recently met up with Stomp and hit it off so we thought it made sense to have him sit in on an episode. Ethan is a route creator, runner, hiker, podcaster and all around interesting guy so he is going to share some of his experience with us and we are going to learn about the Squamathon and some of his other crazy pursuits in the Whites. In addition to Ethan we will give our predictions for winter snowfall totals, Stomp has discovered he cannot sleep well while backpacking so we are going to conduct a therapy session, Grizzly bear attack in canada, mail truck burns in NH - Mrs. Stomp is ok, The Abby Hernandez abduction in North Conway, Haunted Happening and things to do and recent search and rescues on Tuckerman and Monadnock.
