COVID-19 Part 4: Navigating wild waters and the ongoing pandemic crisis
When the going gets tough, the tough get going.
Joining Arica Sears on this episode of the Big Tourism podcast (Part 4 of Arica Sears's ongoing COVID-19 series) is Kate Crump, a fishing guide and co-owner of Frigate Travel and ambassador for Patagonia, Loop Tackle, Costa, Fishpond, and Rising Tools. If she had to sum up her current situation with COVID-19 it would be ‘closed’. Business is shut down, boat launches are blocked, and clients can’t make their way out west for the guided adventure of a lifetime. But this doesn’t stop someone used to guiding groups in the wild, working alongside wolves and bears, and speaking out about important environmental issues like aerial spraying herbicides on the Oregon Coast or the proposed Pebble Mine in pristine Bristol Bay, AK. Learn how Kate is navigating the tricky waters of COVID-19, environmental activism, and small business ownership in Oregon and Alaska. Only on ASPN.
