    The Trip Outside folks are a great crew who are genuinely interested in conservation and helping people responsibly recreate outdoors. The Trip Outside podcasts are a great way to learn more about a destination before you go. Many times, it can be difficult to choose an outfitter or tour company when you don’t know who to trust or anything about the company’s ethics. You can rest assured that any recommendations from Trip Outside have already taken this into account. They also offer very helpful tips and advice about how to plan an outdoor adventure when you don’t know anything about the place you are traveling. Thanks Trip Outside!
