205 Overcrowding Equals Search and Rescue? 2021 Was Brutal

On episode 205 We discuss the brutal statistics from the National Park Service about Overcrowding and Search and Rescue in 2021. On our weekly LIVE Audio Show, we have a conversation with our Listeners about why National Parks experienced a record Search and Rescue year. Is this why Backcountry permit fees are on the rise for 2022? Why is there such a disconnect between Visitors and “What to Know before you Go”? and lastly one of our listeners explains Jujutsu and how it’s getting her in shape.
