About the hosts:

Mike is a Massachusetts resident who spends a lot of time in western Maine and the White Mountains. He has been hiking for the last nine years and is a huge hiking nerd. His interests include day hiking, weekend backpacking, and nerding out on gear. He is currently working on completing the New Hampshire 4000 footers (47/48), the 52 With a View (49/52) and the Terrifying 25 (22/25). When he is not talking about hiking, he makes spreadsheets and PowerPoint slides, reads about old-school professional wrestling, researches true crime, or spends time in adult Disney Facebook groups.

Stomp currently lives within the WMNF. He is a dedicated SAR volunteer and self-proclaimed audiophile who dabbles in audio production, engineering and EDM DJ'ing. He is an avid hiker and a huge fan of crazy bushwacks to remote destinations and NH 500 Highest peaks. He works for Grafton County as a PT & LNA. Stomp met Mike during a Mount Washington Road Race a thousand years ago and clearly remains the most handsome host.

It's your best way to stay cool and dry with a backpack.

This lightweight (only 6 ounces), soft, durable, and flexible frame attaches directly to your backpack and creates a natural airflow between you and the pack without using mesh or other material that soaks up sweat and retains heat. This design maximizes airflow to keep your back cool and dry.
