202 A Conversation with Derek and Carl

On this episode we get a chance to sit down once again with Derek and Carl and chat about all things backpacking. Kind of. We chat about the worse trail experience, worse food experience, and how one of us should not be peeing in the campfire. Plus, Scott gives out a special invite to both Carl and Derek to backpacking in Yellowstone National Park in 2022. Do they accept?
