E404 – Sarah of Cordilleran Tours

Sarah Gilbert of Cordilleran Tours in Portland, Oregon leads people into the natural beauty of the Columbia River Gorge on bikes, on foot, or in vehicles to explore and discover!  We talk with her about the ins-and-outs of getting people into the nature they want to see, and what makes this particular region so spectaular – and special.  (oh yeah, and Sarah’s been on the show before, in-studio and live!)

Also: Aaron goes on vacation to Mexico City, and Guthrie writes his will.

Also thanks to our drink sponsor The Beer Mongers for generously providing our libations, and our generous Patreon donors for underwriting our operating costs!
