Night hiking, 3 sets of glowing eyes staring us down, a short slip down the side of a climb, a sweet bivy camp on a beautiful lake…Nov 15, 2023 at 7:36 pm #3793214Karl KerschnerBPL Member
Enjoyed your video. Great views. Good shots of you shelters, packs, cooking. Loved the slow-mo flames from the camp fire. Happy trails,Nov 16, 2023 at 5:07 am #3793229
Thankyou. He is fairly new to backpacking and slowly acquiring the necessary gear needed. This was his first time using the new pack, GG G4-20, the air pad.. which Neoair X therm. Funny story there.. he went to REI not sure what to get. I mentioned the XLITE pad.. they somehow managed to sucker him into buying the X Therm!!! It was also his first time using that Borah Gear tarp. He did pitch it in his yard 1 time before, as per my request. Told him he was not coming out with me until I saw a picture of it set up in his yard. Since we would be hiking in at night, possibility of rain showers and a little breezy, I did not want to get stuck having to set it up for him. Luckily, the weather was perfect and no tarps were needed, but I still had him throw his up so I could check it out and he could get the practice needed. So, that explains the rough pitch of the tarp. He needs to make some adjustments on the 4 corners.. and needs practice.. but hey.. he will get there!Nov 18, 2023 at 9:52 am #3793349HopearotieBPL Member
