114: The 8th Principal

On episode 114 we pose this question, is achieving the perfect backcountry selfie really worth it and are we turning nature’s wilderness into a side show? This podcast might be a little controversial but worth the discussion as we seek to understand why so many people are placing their safety at risk for the sake of social media. Is an 8th Leave No Trace Principle appropriate as social media takes on a life of it’s own in creating an circus buzz around scenic destinations that normally would not have a lot of traffic?

by the way…you can always join in on our discussions on our Facebook group page – just go to: and join our podcast family – come hang out with us AND become part of our community.

What we talk about:

  • The movie was terrible

  • Why are so many hikers getting injured?
  • There actually is a “No Selfie Sign”
  • Principal 8 in Leave No Trace?
