    Fear Squared

    Pumpkin_logo In honor of Halloween, The Dirtbag Diaries ran a contest asking for your scariest stories. Filled with treats, and maybe one trick, the winning entries have been compiled in today's episode. Show host Fitz Cahall sets the stage: 

    What scares dirtbags? Global warming? Nine to five? Johnny Law? The unequivocal answer – bears. After sifting through the entries for the “Night of the Living Dirtbag,” it became clear – bears scare the daylights out of you all.

    To celebrate Halloween, we bring you two tales of terror. Contest winner Chris Peters explains why it pays to listen to the safety talk and a very special guest remembers a family vacation to the Alaskan wilderness gone wrong. Fear is a funny thing. Whether the threat is real or imagined, the emotion of fear – heart-pumping terror – is just as powerful.

    Fitz is always looking for great stories to feature on the show. If you're a climber, skier, surfer, activist or anybody who can't get enough of being outside, consider sharing your story at

    Happy Halloween everybody.
