Good episode? Give it some love!
We've had one goal that we've tried to accomplish through many mediums: helping people take amazing trips. We hope our backpacks, blogs, and podcast episodes have been helpful for people, but now we've got something else to throw into the pot: a Kindle E-book. We've put our most helpful packing tips into one place to assist people in becoming packing pros. Tune in as Fred and Jeremy discuss the details behind the E-book, as well as some insight into the publishing process.
