Team 46: The Troad Warriors

What's a Troad? Well, by some accounts, it's the historical name for a Turkish peninsula. As far as Team 46 is concerned, a troad looks a little bit like a trail, and a little like a road. The team has spent the week hiking through a relative maze of roads and trails in the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest and Anaconda-Pintler Wilderness in Montana. This morning they awoke to find they had cell reception, and this podcast is the result. Johnny Gregg of Coeur D'Alene, Idaho, gives the update; here's a list of the whole team:

Johnny Gregg: Grand Canyon Wildlands Council volunteer (USFS road mapping); WFR certified; good cook; Maura's fiance.
Maura Gregg: Gregg's fiancee/hiking buddy.
Trish Settles: environmentalist, community planner (applied GPS mapping to Boston area neighborhood planning); led groups of women into backcountry for 9 years.
Steven Fuller: Team Leader; USGS employee; Boy Scout leader; GPS-savvy.
Mike Mol: Michigan Conservation Officer (ret.); search & rescue, first aid trained; experienced navigator & photographer; Kris' husband.
Kris Mol: past White River NF ranger; past Michigan Park ranger; experienced navigator & photographer; Mike's wife.
