In this episode, Ben sits down with friends Bob Williams, Jason Bird, and Tom Lasko to talk about how to climb Maine's tallest mountain. This is a pure amateur's perspective on hiking Mt. Katahdin: how much water should you bring, what's the bathroom situation, what are the best trails to use, etc. Even if you have no desire to climb Mt. Katahdin this is a lively conversation about one of Maine's proudest spots that should interest people of differing skill sets and interest levels.
