We have something unusual going on with the podcast today.

Our first male guest!

We’ve decided that in 2018 it’s time to open things up to the wider outdoor community. We talk about diversity so it’s time to practice what we preach.

Please welcome Scott Gauvin to the show.  Scott is a hiker, an explorer, an advocate for connecting youth with the outdoors and the founder of the non-profit organization Gear Forward.

Gear Forward takes gently used gear donations and distributes them to organizations like the Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Church Youth Groups, School Groups and so on. This helps get children into the wilderness who might not otherwise have the opportunity to do so -and- it brings new life to gear by keeping it out of landfills and keeping it in the backcountry.

We love Gear Forward’s mission, our own Lucy is also a Gear Forward Ambassador and we want to help them spread the word about what’s going on in 2018.

I hope you enjoy my conversation with Scott today.
