Welcome to the podcast. First off Thank you guys so much for sharing the Elkoholics video yesterday you guys are freakin awesome. Also thanks to all the new listeners and all the kind messages. This time of year I just can’t keep up with the messages so my apologies if I didn’t get back to you. Also for everyone messaging us about free stickers head over to the website and click the free stickers link. Its really easy and it saves us a ton of time. Alright Last we I was down at Outdoor Retailer in Denver checking out new product for the backcountry fuel box and finally roped Aron into a podcast at the Kifaru headquarters. Aron is a total badass and we had a good time recording this episode. Originally I wanted to pick Arons brain on his gear picks for 2018 but we dive so many rabbit wholes between gear talk its hard to call this podcast a gear episode. However we do talk a fair amount about communication devices, managing time, and running business from the mountains. Huge Congrats to Aron and Amy on getting hitched wish you guys the best. I think Aron finally found someone to keep him in check. Enjoy!
