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. 


Dec 22, 2023 

This week, we bring you a fun story of two hikers - Jessica and Fran who experienced trouble on Franconia Ridge - this one is from the perspective that we don’t often think about when talk about hiking - the once a year hiker going out for a fun day of nature mostly unaware of how best to prepare for a challenging day in the mountains. This story turns out okay but it is a lesson in how small decisions can build up and create the potential for big problems. Plus we have an angry mother nature - road closures, washouts, raging rivers, and major flooding across New Hampshire and Maine - the great flood of 2023 this week has wreaked havoc in the Whites and beyond. All this and a Volcano eruption in Iceland, Wolves in Colorado, Lord of the Rings, A recent hike retraces the steps of Darby Field in the Montalban Range and recent search and rescue news
