In this episode, Mark and Jonathan get a chance to have additional time conversing with Nick of the Woods, who we spoke to in episode 13, our cold weather episode. Nick, an outdoors guide and educator, tells us about how he got into the woods, and why it means so much to him to introduce the rest of us to the skills necessary to learn to love them the way he does. After that, a quick conversation about keeping water clean finishes up the chat. Finally, Jonathan and Mark then have a quick conversation about how a camp location can affect your comfort.
