This episode is about an ill fated winter hike and what to do if you find yourself trapped in your car in the backcountry. I had planned a group hike to visit the Devil’s Chair on the back side of the Angeles National Forest but a heavy winter storm moved into the region. I sat at home, watching the rain and realized I might not be properly equipped to handle traveling in the winter along a snowy, icy stretch of highway. In this podcast I remind everyone about what can happen if you venture into the backcountry unprepared and what to do to make sure you’re safe on the road.
