Derek and Carl recap a unique trip filled with unique characters. Also, a new bad place to store bear spray (as evidenced by a spray victim) is discussed.

Episode 110 - Uncommon Gear Reviews & Trip Report

August 10th, 2020

Back from Ansel Adams Wilderness, Derek and Carl review a number of items not commonly referenced by most critics (including some that really have no business being on the trail). Carl challenges Derek about his contributions to the trip and insinuates that he might be the culprit of the "rock-in-the-pack" prank. In response to an odd trivia question, does Derek believe Mary and Joseph made their journey to Bethlehem 1000 years after Jesus was born?
