E217 – Branden Shelby & Daniel Harkins: Summer Tour 2014

Branden Shelby & Daniel Harkins come in to tell us about their epic wilderness tour last summer.  They took a turn through the Gifford Pinchot National Forest and lived to tell about it, including negotiations after a stealth camping bust, a difficult fix on the side of a road, and midnight attempts for tacos at a fast food drive-thru.

Also: it’s Boston month (interviews), Brock went to Boston, and Aaron went to Missoula.

Logan shares the Seatylock, a bicycle saddle that doubles as a lock.

Doug says our scatalogical emergency reminded him of this TED talk, and thinks bicycling can make people more compassionate.  Glenn said that it needed a “soiler alert.” [wah wah]  Richard shared his similar experience, and recommends imagining a farther-off destination.
