We welcome back Becky Pokora from sightDOING who took a trip to Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks recently. We discuss the long hikes you can take when not traveling with two kids and a dog (like Nick did!), renting a boat to go fishing, what flying cross country felt like, and a whole lot more. Becky teaches both Joe and Trevor some new terminology/names and a great time was had by all.
In Final Boarding Call, Becky discusses dealing with a plethora of cancelled trips and finding value in AA redemptions (!) domestically.
