Have you ever dreamed of packing up your bike and riding through various countries in search of amazing people and wonderful local food? Tom Perkins did and he also created an excellent cookbook and travelogue along the way. "This is a cookbook about a gastronomic cycling adventure. One that takes you through six distinctive, vibrant, and historic culinary regions of the world (Western Europe, Central Europe and the Balkans, Eastern Mediterranean, the Middle East and North Africa, The Horn and Eastern Africa, and Southern Africa). It is a cookbook that provides you with over 65 exciting, easy to replicate, and diverse recipes drawn from and inspired by the dishes we experienced and came to love in the 26 different countries that we traveled through on our long way home to Cape Town, South Africa." Listen in and experience this amazing journey!
The Yampa River of northwest Colorado is considered the last major free flowing-river in the seven state Colorado River Basin. It cascades for 249 miles from high in the Rocky Mountains near Steamboat Springs and descends over 6,000 ft. from alpine tundra to parched desert. Bisecting local, state, and national parks, and at times enclosed in a 2,500 ft. deep canyon, it morphs from a cold trout stream to a warm water haven for endangered fish, evolving from placid meanders into famous whitewater rapids.
Join Colorado nature photographer John Fielder as he photographs his way down the entire length of the river from the Yampa’s headwaters in the Flat Tops Wilderness at 11,500 ft. to its confluence with the Green River in Dinosaur National Monument. Fielder’s sublime images of tundra wildflowers, eagles and elk, and the tributaries and canyons of the Yampa will allow you to feel like you are rowing along with the author!

In 2010, Kevin Shannon ventured out on cycling trip around Europe. When he entered into the country of Serbia, he fell in love with the place. This infatuation with a country roughly the size of Maine inspired him to spend more time walking 900 kilometers from top to bottom then later again from south to north. Listen in as Kevin describes what it was that intrigued him about this often misunderstood land. Be sure to visit his Kickstarter page by Sunday February 7th to get in on the upcoming book and help him tell the world!
Caleb Linville, Curt Linville, Stephen Moldenhauer, & Stone Hubbard are featured on today's show as they share a trip report from the winter ascent of Mount Parnassus (13,579 ft). There are some real gems hidden in this show about climbing in the winter, snow shoeing in avalanche terrain and lessons learned. Most of the show was recorded on location while ascending the peak. We part from the standard format of the show for this special report and mix in some great tunes performed by Stone. Hope you enjoy this change of pace!
