EpISODE 54 - Peter j. Barr
We enjoyed welcoming Peter into Gary and Barbara's living room for this lively episode. Peter is a local conservationist, author, AT thru-hiker, and RVer.
We were pleased to have Lt. Colonel Larry Eblen (ret.) join us via Zoom for this episode. We talk about a lot, but the main focus is Larry's system for ranking non-alcoholic brews. See if you agree with his choices.
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.

Episode 51 Features Kirsten McDonald
We wrapped up a day of live podcasting at the DuPont Forest Festival with a lively interview with Kirsten McDonald. Kirsten is the Information and Education Supervisor for DuPont State Recreational Forest.
Danny Bernstein is our guest for Episode 50
Danny Bernstein is a well-known author of a bunch of books on hiking and backpacking in the Carolinas. We met up with Danny this fall at the Forest Festival being held at DuPont State Recreational Forest. Check out the podcast.
We were pleased to have Sara Landry, the Executive Director of Friends of DuPont Forest as our guest for Episode 49. We recorded this episode and four other others at the DuPont Forest Festival held on National Public Lands Day.
The best non-alcoholic beer...period
We had Marco Knox with us for our second interview of the day at the Forest Festival held a month ago at DuPont State Recreational Forest. Marco introduces us to a couple of brews from Athletic Brewing Company. These beers are actually amazingly tasty non-alcoholic beers...and at only 70 calories. Check out the episode and then check out athleticbrewing.com.
Live from the dupont forest festival
We don't often get invited anywhere, but in a weak moment desperate for entertainment...the folks hosting the DuPont Forest Festival asked us to record some episodes "live" during their great event. This is the first of five shows we did that day. In this episode, our 47th, we interviewed Jeff Jennings, the Founding President of The Friends of Dupont Forest.
Dee Dee Speaks Her mind...
We had a lively chat with DeeDee during our last session. While Gary and I have been taking cover from COVID, DeeDee has been at her post as Director of Security or make that Insecurity at the Gary & Mark Podcasting University in Watershed. And without a lot of folks around, she was ready to let us know what she's been thinking.
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 enjoyed our session broadcasting from the mobile podcasting studio in the parking lot at Iron Key Brewing Company. Iron Key is located in what used to be "The Big House." Yes, it was a North Carolina prison. The solitary confinement cells were taken and it was just too windy outside to record. So we confined ourselves into a bit more luxury in the van. Take a listen.
