05 – We Hit the Trail, Explore the Arabian Desert, and Strap on a Kilt



Number 5 is Alive! We Hit the Trail, Explore the Arabian Desert, and Strap on a Kilt. Brandon stumbles along the trail with Dusty Bottoms Trail Runners, a drinking group with a running problem. Then he speaks with a former petroleum engineering manager from Kuwait who now inspires others to get out and see the wonders of the Arabian Peninsula and around the world. Finally, Paul speaks with a Scotsman who tosses cabers in Highland Games, deflects pucks on the ice but can’t deflect the question – What is under his kilt? To get you pumped for our trip to the UK we picked a Scottish Ale from Belhaven called Wee Heavy. That and our usual craic so have a listen while enjoying your next pint. Husaak Adventures / HOKA ONE ONE / VisitScotland / Council of Scottish Clans & Associations / Scottish Highland Games And Gathering Of The Clans / ASICS
