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.
This past black Friday, I decided to get out of town and let the consumerism zombies have at each other. My destination was the Red River Gorge in Kentucky. It is one of my favorite places to camp, backpack, and hike. I set out to find Hanson’s Point which is an overlook off an unofficial trail.
I have had my eye on this product for a while now. It is an iPhone case that is made very well and will hold up to the most rugged adventures. To boot, it also has an attached solar panel which trickle charges the integrated battery AND it is waterproof. You could not ask for anything better in my opinion. In this video, I go over some of the features of the case and why I finally got one.
I had always wanted to see the humongous trees that so many of my friends had told me about. In Indiana, we have very few “old growth” forests so it really put things into perspective when I visited Sequioa.
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.
