  • Day hiker with FOMO

    To start, to be honest, I’m a sticker freak and really would love one. But, thanks for always entertaining me as I’m on the road a bunch for work and can always tune in and catch up with the new adventures…my wife and I are only day hikers in the Midwest but I personally have aspirations of building my way up to a through hike. more

  • Great Podcast

    I just listened to episode 250 with Jabba. I am a physician, and I am sorry to tell Chaunce, but it is totally possible to feel stool through the vaginal wall. The wall of the rectum and the wall of the vagina are right up against each other, and both are very thin. There’s literally nothing between the rectum and the vagina. Sorry Chaunce 🤷‍♂️

  • THE Podcast for any backpacker

    Found this podcast 4 yrs ago, hello pandemic, and have loved listening to the banter between Chaunce & Zach, honest gear discussions regardless of sponsorship and quality (read experienced & knowledgeable) guest interviews. They entertain, inform and keep you engaged.
