Episode 115 - “Small” Upgrades That Make a Big Difference

November 9th, 2020

Derek and Carl discuss "minor" adjustments that they've tried over the years that improved their outdoor adventures. The word "small" is in quotations because Carl's list involves items that are on the costly side while Derek's list involves two items that Carl challenges. In fact Carl claims that one of Derek's items is the worst answer he's ever given on the podcast while another of his items he's discussed at least 5 times. You be the judge.

Episode 114 - The Random Gear Box

November 2nd, 2020

We all have gear that's been collecting dust for years. What do we do with it? And are any of us at risk of becoming a gear hoarder? (Derek certainly thinks Carl has already crossed that threshold.) This episode discusses the various options we have for the gear we rarely use and how to evaluate its value. Derek and Carl dig through their own random gear boxes to basically judge each other based on the stuff they've kept. Also, are there some items you may have cast aside that could still be worth hanging onto?
