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. 


Jan 26, 2024 

 This week we are joined by KERRY UHLENDORF who is the owner of Sherpa Ant, an online retailer that offers a variety of creative Northeast mountain-inspired illustration, cards, apparel & gifts.  Sherpa Ants mission is to HELP OUTDOOR ENTHUSIASTS PURSUE AND SHARE THEIR PASSIONS WHILE GIVING BACK TO THE community. In addition to her work Kerry is also a prolific hiker, having grown up in and around the northeast so we will talk about some of her favorite areas in the White Mountains. She has also completed the Appalachian Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail so we will ask her to give us her insights about what is going through this year's class of thru hikers head as they prepare to head out on the long trails. Also this episode we will discuss the recent hiker fatality along the Pemi Loop route, an attempt to change the name of Mount Washington has been denied, plus search and rescue news with 3 hikers in trouble on Mount Monadnock and 20 skiers getting lost out of bounds in Killington, Vermont.
