Ogden Outdoor Adventure Show 226 - Beus Trailhead, Sundance From Afar
Stoking his 'Rock Star' status by partying early into the morning on Main Street in Park City during Sundance, Todd to the Top then co-hosted the Ogden Outdoor Adventure Show in the afternoon at Beus Trail in Ogden. John Wojciechowski, host of Mr. Goodyear's Neighborhood, gives us his opinion on the two Utahan's who are suing the New York City Marathon for 10 Million. We watch an Ogden City plow driver attempt to do his job, and we chat local adventure News, Events, Gear, and more.
Join The Banyan Collective during the First Friday Arts Stroll on February 5th, where we'll podcast LIVE musicians from Union Station with artists stuffed into our tuna can of a van. We call it #VanSessions. Music and podcasting runs from 6-10pm. Visit the FB Event Page for details.
Cheers & Beers!
