179 The Switchbacks of 2020 A Year In Review

On this Episode we take a look back at all the Episodes of 2020 highlighting our favorites and share a little behind the scenes. We also do some reflecting on all the backpacking trips we’ve had with you, (our listeners). How did we manage to take the Podcast on the road during a Pandemic and survive? We share the Best of 2020 among the worse of 2020. AND If you had to give 2020 a trail name…what would it be? All this and more.
