ITF036: Late start to the season, again

inthefieldpodcast-300x300This is In The Field Camping Episode 36.  In this episode, Chris talks about the reasons for the large gap between episodes: weather, other non-camping commitments, etc.  Also the surprises that pop up on the first trip of the year.  This episode was recorded at Ridgway State Park in Colorado. (The occasional low hum may mean my trusty recorder has seen its better days and may be in need of replacement).
