Dharma Bums – Radio



Dharma Bums

This is the radio that the National Park Service issues you and the rest of the backcountry folks.  The orange or black bottom twists off and is called the clamshell.  It contains nine AA batteries.  Sometimes on a firelookout when it is stormy — the only human voices you hear all day are from this radio.  It also functions as a party line of sorts — you can monitor all the other transmissions and find out all the news from across the north and south units of the North Cascades National Park or whatever park you are working
