Episode 87 - Wonalancet Out Door Club Trail System - Whiteface, Passaconway, Tom Wiggins, Kate Sleeper


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 kick off episode 87 with a discussion on some recent hikes in the White mountains along with a short history lesson about the trail systems in the Wonalancet Out Door Club. Later in the show we have a large backlog of search and rescue news to cover including a recent fatality on Franconia Ridge. I’ll cover that story along with a number of other incidents to get Stomps perspective on what's going in the world of search and rescue.
