After another break The Adventure Podcast returns at long last with a new episode. While we were away, a lot has gone down in the world of outdoor adventure and exploration. So much so in fact that my cohost Dave Adlard and I decided to forgo our regular format, which typically includes a main topic of some sort, in order to concentrate on all of the stories instead. As a result, we have a jam-packed episode that includes updates on the fall climbing season in the Himalaya, new challenges for Nims Purja, follow-ups to several stories we’ve talked about in the past, and a crazy marijuana raid at the Vuelta a Espana in Spain.
Despite the fact that we don’t have a main topic this week, we still offer our usual gear reviews. I share my thoughts on the new Pacsafe Vibe 25L Econyl backpack that uses 100% recycled materials, while Dave offers up his expert opinion on the Rhythm t-shirt from Black Diamond and the Marmot Aerobora shirt as well.
