Episode 101 — Gettin’ Roast Beef to San Francisco

Just like John Ford filming a classic western, we brave the elements to bring you episode 101 in all it’s Technicolor, widescreen glory. Winter may be wicked outside, but we’re moseying down the trail, single malt in hand, and we’re delivering the low down on a chuck wagon full of games, followed by a full dissection of what life’s like on The Great Western Trail.

Get ’em up.
