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. 


Feb 10, 2023


Show Note - we had some audio issues and had to cut Andi’s segment early. We are going to work to re-record the section we lost and add a Part 2 but wanted to get the first 90 minutes out. Apologies for the abrupt drop off.

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 one of the queens of the Ozarks, our friend Andi Lowry. Andi runs the Ozark Trail Section Hikers and Backpackers group which has over 12,000 members. She is an experienced hiker and backpacker who helps organize new backpacking education programs, and holds a wealth of knowledge around how best to start navigating the often confusing world of backpacking.All this and some recent hiking recaps.

Show Correction - Andi got the distance of the Katy Trail incorrect, she meant to say 237 Miles.
