It’s been a while hasn’t it?

How have you been?

I’ve been good. Busy too. Sorry I haven’t posted anything here for quite a while. My day-job moved in a direction that doesn’t provide for much downtime in front of a computer like it used to. So I haven’t had the time to do much video or photo editing. But I’m going to work on changing that this spring and summer (not the job part, my jobs good, but the part where I strive to produce some more content for this blog).

I have another trip on the GAP coming up that spring and a new bike to tackle that adventure. So my brain is in bike/camping mode for the next several months leading up to the trip. I also completed the entire Laurel Highland Trail in a thru-hike with my siblings. Look for trip reports from those adventures as well as gear reviews and more videos.

Till then, ta-ta for now.

Backpack Food

After a few months of silence, I’m back and will soon release a new video. Over the next several weeks I will be posting videos where I try out new backpacking recipes.

I am trying out these recipes because I want something other than freeze dried boil in bag meals. I want to try them out before I venture off into the woods. I decided to film those trials. Already (as you will see in the videos) I realized I need a bigger pot and a more fuel efficient stove if I want to cook this way.

So tune in starting Monday for the first video, Bacon Spuds!

Since I started this site, I haven’t actually done a hike. I did one bike tour (that I still have to finish editing the photos for and do a writeup on) but haven’t done any real hiking. Read more »

Three Wheel Journey

When doing a little video research on the B.O.B Yak trailer, I came across some videos from a bike trecker who circled around the US by bike. From Harpers Ferry to McDonald PA he rode the C&O and GAP. I thought it would be fun to share with you his videos from that trip. There’s about twenty of them that cover”my” trails.

Just when I thought this would be a detour free trip, BAM a dreaded detour strikes.

Here’s what happened. Just east of Paw Paw Tunnel on the C&O, there was a landslide. Even worse, other parts of the ravine are likely to come crashing down as well. For safety the National Park Service has closed the cut on the east end of the tunnel. Read more »
