Ogden Outdoor Adventure Show 204 - Blue Moon
After a string of quality guests from Miss Rodeo Ogden, now Miss Utah, to The Ogden Bike Collective, Ogden Nature Center, and Ogden Farmer's Market, we're back to a good ol' fashioned OOA Show with in-depth adventure news, local outdoor events, and a gear segment with our own Gear Junky James breaking down a couple 2-person tents he's used this summer.
We give you something worth watching, something worth reading, and the occasional laugh in this light-hearted episode recorded before the rare Blue Moon. Listen here or on iTunes.
