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 are excited to be joined by Chezwick who is here to share his stories of long distance hiking. Chezwick has covered a lot of miles in his life including being one of the few people to hike the Eastern Continental Trail. Chezwick is now focused on the Great Western Loop which is an almost 7000 mile loop in the western united states consisting of the pacific crest trail and continental divide trail along with a number of connecting trails creating a giant loop that covers 9 states. Later in the show - the Cog Railway is proposing a plan for lodging just below the summit and everyone is losing their minds.
