Ohio Backpacking YouTuber Meetup

This past weekend I was invited to an Ohio Backpacking YouTube Meetup. There were about 8 or 9 channels represented and some other folks joining us who did not have channels. We camped at site 3 at Mohican State Park near Loudonville Ohio. I have to say camping with these guys was a lot of fun. We did a day hike, a small skit to razz one of our fellow YouTubers, and had lots of gear talk around a campfire. It was so nice meeting up with channels I have watched and to really get to know the person behind the camera.

The Blue Lakes Trail Colorado

This hike was one that I have been wanting to do for some time. It is a relatively easy 6.6 out and back hike with only the first mile or so being the most difficult. The pay off for this hike is three of the most beautiful blue glacier fed mountain lakes you can imagine. I only saw one of them and we also had a surprise visitor on the trail but I would recommend this hike to anyone.

Exploring a Secret Waterfall at Boch Hollow State Nature Preserve

My friend Jen and I took a day trip to nearby Ohio to check out a waterfall I read about in Backpacker Magazine. The picture of it in the magazine was just beautiful so I had to go check it out in person. I hope you enjoy the video.

Alum Bluffs Cave Trail

One of the best hikes in the Smoky Mountains by far. Best views, challenging, and a lot of fun to hike. Check out the video here: Alum Bluffs Cave Trail

A Weekend of Adventure

This past weekend I set out to test some new gear and had an awesome time hammock camping. The next day, I day hiked to some old stone cabin ruins with a new friend and was amazed at what we found.

Return to the Oriole West Trail in the Hoosier National Forest

After last week’s grueling three day hike and camp on the adventure hiking trail, I wanted to get out on a nice, pleasant day hike. Luckily, a friend of mine who heads up a hiking club invited me to return to one of my favorite trails in the Hoosier National Forest.
