Welcome to the Backcountry to Backyard Podcast blog! If you like the podcast, check out the blog for things we can't quite fit into the show. Each week we'll post about outdoor news and tell stories from the trail. We'll give you updates on our adventures and discuss everything from cool new gear to training to anything and everything having to do with the outdoor world! We'll post pictures from our trips and adventures, as well as from other people who are doing cool and exciting things in both your backyard and the backcountry!
