The receptionist at Big Meadows Lodge asked me if my black bear cub looked anything like this framed picture they had on their wall. I said, "Yes! That's exactly what he looked like!"

    Congrats on your trip guys! The field recordings were fascinating, although I was hoping for more commentary from “Dad.” Too bad you didn’t get pics of your bear cub.

    I just got back from my backpacking trip in Colorado and your podcasts were perfect for the drive back to CA. Thanks again for the inspiration over the past few months. It turned out that I was probably the most prepared of my group of 7 hikers and that’s partly due to your podcast.

    Oh, while we didn’t see any bears we did see some bear poop, which was pretty exciting (never thought I’d bee so excited about poop).

    Looking forward to your next adventure!

      Dad just got a voice recorder yesterday, so we’re hoping to have both our notes next time. Or we’ll carry the field recorder and mics to do a normal podcast. The extra weight was the question, but as it turned out we would have been okay to carry the extra since our days ended up lighter than planned. I agree, I wish dad and I had recorded more together during the trip. I also would have liked to hear his random thoughts as he hiked, especially what occurred to him as interesting and noteworthy throughout the day.

      Where did you backpack in Colorado? If you want we could interview you for our podcast. That would be fun! You could be live with dad and me!
