    Soul Mate 

    The term soul mate means many different things. Some say they are souls that you have experience with in the past, parallel, or future lifetimes.

    This being said, we were blown away when we came across the kind words of Jonathan Hung having never met. Jon is the creator of Nicaraguahope.org, a website dedicated to raising the global awareness of the social, economic, and religious issues of Nicaragua.

    Take a look at what Jon had to say about Backpod:

    Jon, who is a talented photographer, established Nicaragua Hope after witnessing the plight of the locals in Bluefields, Nicaragua. (see photos above)

    …as we all evolve from the same source of consciousness creation, we could say that we are all soul mates in a manner of speaking.

    Thank you Jon!

    We Get By With a Little Help From Our Friends 

    Thanks to our wonderful support system, Backpod has been able to accomplish the biggest feat for us to date – completing our inaugural trip to the country of Honduras! Our support has revealed itself in all sizes, from packages big to small and through donations made by individuals to major companies.

    We want to give a very warm “THANK YOU” to all of you who have been there for us. You helped make this project come to life as we begin posting videopods!

    ADVENTURE MEDICAL KITS is a company who has dedicated itself to allowing everyone safe enjoyment of the outdoors. They recently created a safety kit focused on international travel – and they allowed Team Backpod to test it out during the expedition in Honduras. They provided us with all sorts of medical supplies and gear for travel – and believe me these supplies became quite useful.

    To make a long story short, we have been given the opportunity to be guest bloggers for AMK – and they recently posted a Backpod story on their blog!
    See what type of encounter Backpod had with these rambunctious kids!

    Backpod would also like to once again show our gratitude to those individuals who have helped by recognizing our HONDURAS HELPERS. Check out our HONDURAS HELPERS, and learn how you can become one! They have stepped up to help – we love our HONDURAS HELPERS! http://www.backpod.org/HH%20Supporters.html

    We are in the July 10 issue of Knoxville Voice!

    The Knoxville Voice, an alternative paper published every two weeks, is currently running an article about Backpod!

    We had a great time getting our photo taken – and yes we couldn’t resist bringing props. Those rad orange backpacks and the stellar explorer hat are brought to you for your viewing pleasure straight from the Foster garage – courtesy of Jan and Ted. Our car was full of imagineable objects, so we were excited to see which ones made the cut!

    To read the article visit: http://www.knoxvoice.com/news/articles/expanding-our-horizons/

    And if you are in Knoxville, pick up your copy today! To find a KV bin near you visit: http://www.knoxvoice.com/maps/findus/

    *Special thanks to Elizabeth Wright from the Knoxville Voice for doing such a great job on the article, and being a fantastic sport during the “photo shoot.” It was great fun!
