Gary and Mark welcomed Charlie Tucker and Joe Clarke to join them at Saluda Outfitters for an unauthorized Camp Mondamin reunion. You can only imagine how that turned out.
Charlie, Gary, Mark & Joe
We were pleased to be able to sit down with long-time outdoor educator, Steve Longenecker, and discuss just parts of his amazing experiences.

We've started our third season with this episode recorded at the old Green River Bridge. Gary and Mark ramble on about several recent happenings. One of the many highlights is Gary's demonstration of a portable bidet. And folks, it's a real product.
Gary and Mark met as camp counselors at Camp Mondamin 49 years ago. Enjoy this 15-minute episode as they recreate a hike they did in 1971. It turned out to be kind of a disaster, but it cemented their friendship. In this episode, we make it right.
Gary and Mark met up with old camp friend, Scott Reed, on the tower at Camp Mondamin for our 36th episode. Scott, a financial advisor of the top order, gives our listeners and us some advice...and then Scott and Gary team up for some musical selections. Sit back and enjoy.
Gary and Mark got together to record this episode from a proper social distancing distance. We brought in three guests via phone including Mayor Thomas, Mayor of Watershed; Joseph Clarke, the legal counsel for the show and university; and Frank Schell, a friend who happens to be a pickleball champion and is taking over that sport for the university as well as serving as the new tourism and development director for Rabbit Island Resort.

We travel back to where our friendship began for this episode. Gary and Mark met at Camp Mondamin in 1971 and decided to celebrate their 49th year of friendship by recording on the tower at the camp overlooking Lake Summit. And if fact, if you squint you can get a glimpse of Rabbit Island. As always, lots of fun stuff going on in 25 minutes.

This episode actually predated our "welcome" episode. Gary & Mark were enjoying lunch and a buck-fifty beer at Green River Barbecue in Saluda, NC. Out came a portable recorder and the two friends chatted for a few minutes. This was going to be our practice run but we actually liked it enough to save and post. It doesn't take a lot to please us!
