Episode 61: Good Rams and Bad Rain Gear

In this episode, I’m going solo, so bear with me. I recap the sheep hunt I just had and how much fun it was chasing rams around with the bow before I got blown off the mountain. I also talk specifically about my catastrophic rain gear failure, followed by some talk about expensive breathable rain gear, and my opinions, experiences, and frustrations with this experience. This isn’t meant to knock any particular company, person, etc…just to point out that everything I feared about using that style of rain gear was proven true to me, and it could have turned out much worse.
