A father and a daughter came to a Boldly Went Show together, put their names in the hat, and they were both selected. Turns out, it was both of their first times hearing the story from the other. Jim tells about his "best job in the world" as a horse back riding ranger in Sequoia National Park, and how he reacts when you cut switchbacks. Janessa tells about her first experience with running the Elkhorn Crest 50+ miler.

Jim Wells: "I had the best job in the world."
The contests were:
- Mule shoeing for quality
- Tying the diamond hitch
- Tying the box hitch, and
- A Packing contest where the contestant was given loads which they need to pack up, mount on their horse then lead the mules a ways to the finish line. The fastest time won, and the loads had to be judged ‘trail worthy’.
