The Peninsula Trail Overnighter

Had a fantastic time out on Lake Monroe near Bloomington Indiana. Me and a gaggle of other outdoor YouTubers took the five mile trail to the shore line and camped out. It rained on us almost the entire hike in but stopped when we got there. Check out the fun here: Peninsula Trail Overnighter

Hiking the Amy Weingartner Branigan Peninsula Preserve

Today I took a day hike at the Amy Weingartner Branigan Peninsula Preserve on Monroe Lake near Bloomington Indiana. It was rainy and cold but I still had a great time exploring this relatively new nature preserve dedicated to a girl who died of a brain tumor in 2012.

Solo Overnight Camp in the Charles C. Deam Wilderness

I needed to get back out for a nature fix so I decided to head back to the Charles C Deam Wilderness near Bloomington Indiana. I went back to a spot that I knew and about 100 yards away a group of drunken yahoos decided to take up residence at the next camp spot. That’s okay, I did not let them ruin my fun and I even got some reviews filmed while I was there. The next morning, I packed up and headed out and forgot to film my way back to the car.

Hiking the Hickory Ridge Trail in the Hoosier National Forest

This past weekend I took a trip to the Hoosier National Forest to try out the Hickory Ridge Trail. It is a 48.7 mile multi use trail located near Bloomington Indiana. I only did a section of it but ended up totally 11+ miles. Along the way, I ran into several sets of horseback riders and had some excitement for the day. If you are interested in doing this trail, make sure you go after a long dry spell or you will be sloshing through the mud. It is a relatively easy trail with only a few sections of elevation. It winds through hardwoods and sections of pines and has some really pretty water crossing. You can watch the video here: Hickory Ridge Trail in the Hoosier National Forest
