You've just lost a loyal listener
I used to enjoy this podcast, but the recent episode "Camping Mishaps" has led me to unsubscribe. While I have enjoyed the tips and stories shared in the past, the stories during this episode about his father's callous disregard for animal life left me disgusted. I couldn't even finish the episode and didn't want to. I wouldn't blame the host for his father's deeds, except that he laughed during both stories. Honestly, his father should be charged with animal cruelty and I don't know why those stories even belong on a podcast about camping.
Enjoy the sounds of nature
Campground reviews, camping equipment reviews...and the sounds of geese and water, don't get much better than this.
This takes me back
Enjoy the stories, the sounds of the campfire and wildlife and water. Makes me miss camping.
