A student in my Backcountry Cuisine course just sent me a link to a podcast for new backpackers. It is called The First 40 Miles. I have listened to 5 or 6 episodes already and have really enjoyed it. For someone who has a lot of backpacking experience, you may find that some of the concepts are simplistic, but I got at least 2 new ideas from every episode. I also appreciate being reminded of what it is like to go backpacking for the first time. Most importantly to me, they have some excellent meal ideas. Episode 38 is all about food, and again, I got several good ideas from them. Go check it out and let me know what you think of it.
