Dan’s Link Data Bank (Podcast Shownotes)

  • Doug Laher was on our podcast in Episode 9 and you can find the trail notes here to listen, view photos and lots of links. Doug’s his first podcast and reads the article he wrote for the Trek on the Trek’s Backpacker Radio episode #73 which is very raw. You can find it here. In the second part of the episode, the show interviews someone from the Riverside Mountain Rescue Unit and that is also worthwhile to listen to. Doug was on Erin’s Hiking Thru podcast a month later. Feb of 2021 he was on Trail Tales podcast / in March of 2021 he was on “The By Land Podcast / then he was on Russ’s The Trail Creators Podcast and I really enjoyed that one since Russ was also hiking at the same time as Trevor and he talks about what that hike was like with Covid starting and the issues with hiking on the trail at that time. Russ remembers walking with Trevor during a 20 min stint and how they kept leap-frogging each other on trail as one would stop to get a drink or marvel at the surroundings. Russ also talks about them getting a hitch off trail where they would spend the night at a Market and camp outside. Russ had his microspikes and an ice axe but noticed many of the hikers did not have one yet. He breifly tried to show them how to use it for when they get theirs up ahead. As you will learn farther into the podcast that Trevor… he was to get his ice axe and microspikes 17 more miles up trail from where his accident was in town when he resupplied. There is a great article from Louise Farr from AltaOnline that talks about the accident and also invited Doug and Cameron on a Zoom call that is hosted on YouTube. Riverside Mountain Rescue Unit is the incredible volunteers that go out on every mission when people are hurt or missing in and around a large area that they cover. 
  • We talk about stranger danger and Dan brings up that bald creepy guy that was floating around in years past.
