This week Bob and co-host Kevin discuss why some agencies in charge a fee for search and rescue missions, and why agencies in Colorado don't. Should people be charged for the cost of rescues? How is that decided, and who makes the decision? It's a pretty lively discussion.
Also, we respond to a listener request and go over basic trail etiquette.
