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. 


Mar 1, 2024 


This week we are joined by Erik Hamilton. Erik is the author of the recently released new book - The Other 52 - A Hiker’s Guide to the lower 52 Peaks of the New Hampshire 100 Highest. Erik is also a longtime blogger along with his wife Alanna and you can check out details of many of their adventures on their website - A Talk In the Woods.  WE hope you’ll enjoy hearing from someone who knows where all the less traveled corners of the White Mountains are and will share some stories and advice about places listeners might not always think of to check out but are worth knowing about. Along with our guest we have a review of the Vt. 4000 footers, missing hiker cases and drama in the snowmobile community.
