SinChats - Going Back to Sawyer Squeeze instead of Sawyer Mini?
 
05:53
A discussion on whether I or not I should go back to using the Sawyer Squeeze instead of the Sawyer Mini water filter. http://www.sintax77.com After some issues with reduced flow rate, occasional clogging, and an increased need for back-flushing, I've begun to wonder if I should return to using the original Sawyer PointONE Squeeze instead of my beloved Sawyer Mini filter. What do you think?

Two Hammocks, One Tarp - Dutchware Double Chameleon Hammock & Spreader Bar System
 
08:01
Hanging Two Hammocks & One Tarp on a single set of Trees using the Dutchware Chameleon Hammock with Beetle Buckles and Spreader Bar. http://www.sintax77.com Dutchware Chameleon Kickstarter Link https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/703694747/chameleon-hammock-by-dutchware?mc_cid=9b4c48c1c3&mc_eid=da2cedc2ea Hammock Length: 11 foot for flatter diagonal lay. Hammock Width: 58 inches Spreader Bar Lenght: 36 inches (can be cut shorter if prefered) For this video, Sara and I will be experimenting with our new double hammock system by Dutchware to hang both of our hammocks side by side without the need to find 3 or even 4 trees in order to set up without having the two hammocks bump into each other. The key pieces of hardware that make this possible are the Dutchware Spreader Bar pole with end pins that lock into the holes on the new Dutchware Beetle Buckles suspension system. When attached at the head end, the spreader bar will keep the two hammocks at a comfortable distance apart. For the video, we’ll be using a 36 inch spreader bar pole, shorter poles can be used as well, or you can even cut down your existing poles to shorter lengths. This can help minimize see-sawing, as well as create opportunities to use narrower tarps, Speaking of tarps, one of the very attractive points of using this system is the ability to pack just a single tarp to be shared by two hammocks. However, you’ll have to keep in mind that you’re required space will be a bit wider than usual. This is especially compounded by non-rectangular tarps, such as those cut in the popular hexagonal shape. Because tarps of those kind are only at their full length along the middle seam, you may find that you’re hammocks don’t quite fit underneath anymore, due to the tapered sides of the tarp. My 10’x12 Hennessy Deluxe Hex Tarp is a hexagonal cut and suffered this symptom. For future trips, I may experiment with a narrower spreader bar, or I may just get a dedicated rectangle shaped tarp for use with this hammock system. Link to Sara's Instagram @SarasGreatAdventures https://www.instagram.com/p/BPWG10Ygk-I/ Product overview from Dutch “The Chameleon is a full-featured hammock designed from the ground up. Each of the components that go into the Chameleon have been developed by us to create a versatile and modular light weight hammock that adapts to its environment. Because you can remove and change out components, the Chameleon will be the only hammock you will ever need.” Website: www.Dutchwaregear.com Facebook: www.facebook.com/dutchware Twitter: www.twitter.com/Dutchwaregear Google+: https://plus.google.com/117120054998098346774 Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/dutch0365/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/dutch3323 Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dutchware_gear

Investing in a Cuben Fiber Tarp - Thoughts & Considerations | Hammock Camping
 
21:40
A discussion on Cuben Fiber Tarps for Hammock Camping - specifically, the Hammock Gear Cuben Hex Tarp models, both with doors and without doors. http://www.sintax77.com I recently received a message from a viewer asking for feedback / advice regarding the potential purchase of an ultralight cuben fiber tarp for hammock camping and backpacking, as well as the pros and cons related to some of the options available for these tarps Below are his two main questions, which Mike and I used as a jumping off point for our discussion on these tarps.  While our reference point throughout the video is HG Cuben Hex Tarp line of tarps (also know as Dyneema Tarps), this discussion is pretty much applicable to cuben tarps in general as well as cuben fiber's properties as a backpacking gear material. Lyle's Questions & Talking Points: I'm considering purchasing the Hammock Gear Cuban Fiber Tarp, but given the price I thought I'd ask some people who own it a couple of questions. 1) 11ft vs 12ft I have an 11ft hammock (Warbonnet - Blackbird XLX)... I'm leaning towards the 12ft length, only because I like the idea of greater coverage. 2) Doors vs no-doors This is my biggest question ... if I should order it with doors...or can get away without them? I'm primarily a 3 season camper...BUT, I would like to do more winter camping. When would you have preferred a "door" version of this tarp vs. a "non-door" version? I've seen you use this tarp in several of your videos.  Is there anything you'd do/choose differently if you were purchasing this tarp again? Other Topics Discussed: Cuben Fiber Cost The advantage of cuben fiber’s lower volume in addition to the more obvious weight savings. Cuben fiber strength & durability considerations for hammock camping. Tarp ridgeline length and finding the right trees. Tarp ridgeline length vs doors for rain and snow camping situations. Tarps Seen in the Video (all weights are tarp only, no lines etc): Hennessy Expedition Asym Stock Standard Tarp 70D Nylon, 10 oz (283 g) , 5.25′ x 8.25′ (it’s an asymetrical shape, so actual ridgeline legnth is still 11′) http://amzn.to/2x9Y3tf Hennessy Hex Tarp 70D Nylon, 23oz (652 g) , 12′ x 10′ (be aware that there is a slightly shorter version out there for the same price, mine is the 12' version. i'm not sure if it's discontinued or what happened) http://amzn.to/2ePlzVB Hammock Gear Cuben Hex Tarp (Dyneema) 12′ without doors, 7.87 oz (223 g) , 12′ x 8.5′ http://www.hammockgear.com/dyneema-cuben-fiber-hex-tarp/ Hammock Gear Cuben Hex Tarp (Dyneema) 12′ with doors, 5.55 oz (157 g) , 12′ x 8.5′ http://www.hammockgear.com/standard-dyneema-cuben-fiber-tarp-with-doors/ Hammocks Seen in the Video Hennessy Expedition Asym Zippered Model http://amzn.to/2x9Y3tf Dream Hammock Darien (Sintax77’s digital camo one) http://www.dreamhammock.com/Darien.html Dream Hammock Thunderbird (Mike’s yellow one) http://www.dreamhammock.com/ThunderBird.html Dutchware Gear NylonD netless hammock (Sara’s purple one) https://dutchwaregear.com/11ft-netless.html Dutchware Gear Half-Wit Hammock (Sintax77’s olive drab one) https://dutchwaregear.com/half-wit-hammock.html Dutchware Argon Vented Winter Sock https://dutchwaregear.com/vented-winter-sock.html Want to help support the channel?

Flat Packable Ultralight Backpacking Bowl - Fozzils Bowlz Review
 
05:53
A review and my thoughts on the Fozzils flat packable bowl for ultralight backpacking & camping. http://www.sintax77.com Fozzils Bowlz are a unique and lightweight backpacking and camping bowl that packs down flat, but quickly converts into and bowl and 16 oz measuring cup using four simple plastic snaps. The flat configuration also gives you the ability to use Fozzils Bowlz as minimalist plate or makeshift serving platter at camp. In this video, I specifically review the bowl, but Fozzils also has a 3 piece set consisting of a bowl, cup, and plate bowl that function in similar fashion. The ability to clean it while flat, combined with it's non-stick silicone coating makes for easy cleanup in the field as well. The plastic is also BPA free. Weight for each bowl is 1.4 oz (40 grams).

First Look - Apex Tarp Shelter by GO! Outfitters
 
06:03
Taking a look at my second item from GO! Outfitters, the Apex Camping Tarp Shelter. http://www.sintax77.com For full specs and the latest details, check out their Kickstarter Page here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/go-outfitters/951363531?token=647c42fb It looks like they have a pretty sweet early bird special for any viewers that want to make a pledge and get their hands on one. This is an 11' x 9.5' 70D Polyester Tarp that comes standard with 6 aluminum stakes and 8 guy-lines which can be configured in a variety of ways in conjunction with the Apex tarp's 20 tie-out points. Personally, I'll probably tie permanent lines to the 4 main corners and use removable a removable setup (either via larks head or hardware, like Dutch Hookworms) for the remaining lines for maximum adaptability on the fly. **A note on the side middle side tie-outs: The official production model has the middle tie-outs on each side, unlike the configuration seen in this video. I believe this was simply due it being a pre-production model. The tarp itself weighs 20 oz. Included guy-lines and aluminum stakes weigh a total of 8 ounces. I can see this tarp work great with any of my current camping hammocks, or as a nice stand alone shelter for minimalist ground sleeping situations. Color options are Forest Green, as seen and Slate Grey. There are also plans for an additional door kit as well, which may shed some light on the importance of those extra tie-out points on each side.

SinChats -  Do You Use a Water Bladder for Backpacking?

Here's a question I get every so often: Do you still use your water bladder for backpacking and if not, why? Let's weigh the pro's and cons. http://www.sintax77.com The water bladder seen in the video is an Osprey 2L HydraForm Reservoir - 70 fl. oz, similar to a Camelbak bladder, but with a bit more rigid design allowing it to maintain the same shape regardless of water level. From looking online, it seems like the Hydraform model is no longer in production. The Osprey Hydraulics LT Reservoir - 2.5 Liter seems to be the next incarnation by Osprey.

Trail Boss Powder - Not Just for Cowboys
 
11:43
Taking a look at one of my favorite powders, IMR Trail Boss. This is a great powder for Cowboy Action Shooting, due to its very high volume relative to other powders on the market. It basically mimics black powder, but it's 100% modern and smokeless. But the fun doesn't stop with cowboy style guns. With a little creativity you'll find a multitude of possibilities to experiment with. Want to see what it's like to shoot a powder puff load in your high-power deer rifle without the dangers of extremely low powder volumes? How about getting your favorite semi-auto to cycle something with less bark? Of course you can always do your fair share SASS style, low-recoil single-action speed shooting with it too! The gun seen in this video is a Ruger New Vaquero. The particular load that I'm making is a 158 grain semi wad-cutter over top of some Trail Boss powder in a 38 special case.

Hiking Red River Gorge - Kentucky Backpacking in Fall
 
55:39
Come along for 2 Nights of November Fall backpacking and hiking in Kentucky's Red River Gorge. GPS Trip Data at http://www.sintax77.com For this adventure, we'll be visiting a very unique Geological Area within Kentucky's Daniel Boone National Forest, called Red River Gorge. This area hosts an impresssive collection of natural arches (or natural bridges, as they are often call), spread across some relatively young forest in the hills of eastern Kentucky, about 1 hour shy of Lexington. In fact, Red River Gorge has the highest concentration of rock arches east of the Rock Mountains (over 100). This makes Red River Gorge a visually impressive hiking area, as well as one of the world's top rock climbing destinations.

Winter Camping with a Pulk Sled - Adirondacks Deep Snow & Icy Summits
 
51:30
Join us for 2 days of winter camping, backpacking & snowshoeing with a pulk sled in the deep snow of the Adirondack mountains. GPS Data at http://www.sintax77.com For this winter camping adventure, we’ll be using a DIY pulk sled to setup up a base camp in the Giant Mountain Wilderness. Day one will be dedicated to building camp and settling in, followed by a summit attempt of Giant Mountain on day two. Our winter pulk sled will be used for group items such as campfire cooking gear, stoves, steaks and other food, additional firewood, our tent, etc. In addition to the sled, Mike, Frank and myself each have a backpack for personal items such as cold weather clothing options and other gear. A list of notable gear can be found at the end of this post. For an easier read & more info check out my blog post htttp://www.sintax77.com/winter-camping-with-a-pulk-sled-adirondacks-deep-snow-icy-summits No permit is required to camp in this area, but there are regulations for backcountry camping. You can find more information on the Adirondacks Park Giant Mountain Wilderness website here. https://www.dec.ny.gov/lands/100750.html Full GPS track data, including campsites, water sources, etc, for this trip and many others can be found in the above blog post or my site’s Trip Data Page. Trailhead Used: Roaring Brook Trailhead, N44° 09.025′ W73° 46.064′ 16 Roaring Brook Trail, Keene Valley, NY 12943 The Roaring Brook trailhead parking area has room for a half dozen vehicles or so. Trails Used, Day 1: Begin at the Roaring Brook Trailhead Parking Lot Roaring Brook Trail At the intersection for the Roaring Brook Falls upper & lower spur trails, continue straight on Roaring Brook Tail. Note: There is a large campsite at the top of Roaring Brook Falls. This is a popular ice climbing location & known campsite, so seclusion may be less so than where we chose to camp. Setup camp about one mile in on the Roaring Brook Trail. The site we selected was an unofficial, but legal, spot that we found along a shelf that we identified on the topo map. There was no immediate access to water, but due to the surrounding four foot snow, we were able to melt snow for our water needs. If you continue along the trail a short bit, you will see a yellow camp here disc right were the trail intersects the brook. This would be a good option for warmer trips, but we preferred the view at our earlier camping location. Day 1 Mileage: 1.1 miles Day 1 Elevation Gain: 991 feet Trails Used, Day 2: Continue north on the Roaring Brook Trail Cross over Roaring Brook This & the second crossing, 1/4 mile later, are the last reliable water sources before the summit. At the intersection, head left (north) on the Ridge Trail to Giant Mountain. Arrive at summit of Giant Mountain, 12th tallest peak in New York, and tallest in the Giant Mountain Wilderness. Head back out the same way. Return to Roaring Brook Parking Lot. Day 2 Mileage: 7 Miles (3 each way to summit, 1 back to the car) Day 2 Elevation Gain: 3,100 feet Grand Total Mileage: 8 Miles Grand Total Gross Elevation Gain: 4,090′ Notable Winter Backpacking Gear Seen: National Geographic Adirondack Giant Mountain Trail Map https://amzn.to/2CtAugz Shawn’s EMS Longtrail 70 backpack https://go.magik.ly/ml/kait/ Mike’s Gregory Palisade 80 backpack https://go.magik.ly/ml/lloj/ Frank’s Scandinavian Gear Backpack https://amzn.to/2UqMVkr Nemo Losi 3p Tent https://amzn.to/2WgUgnh Camp USA Collapsible Snow Shovel https://amzn.to/2UIVXcH Shawns Hammock Gear Burrow 0 Top Quilt https://www.hammockgear.com/premium-burrow/ Frank’s Kelty Cosmic 0 Sleeping Bag https://amzn.to/2W8yhPd Tyvek Ground Cloth https://amzn.to/2WIAGRU Optimus Polaris Optifuel Stove https://amzn.to/2CoxjG5 MSR Whisperlite Universal Multi-fuel Stove https://amzn.to/2Fj2XGN Zippo Lighter https://amzn.to/2FBpikz MalloMe Camping Cookware Mess Kit https://amzn.to/2TVWpXJ Toaks 450ml Titanium Cup https://amzn.to/2Wa5t8W Sea to Summit Long Handled Spork http://amzn.to/2uyl5GJ Mountain House Spicy Breakfast Hash https://amzn.to/2DUKG33 Steripen Ultra UV Water Purifier https://amzn.to/2WJp8gS Forty Below 1L Water Bottle & Bottle Boot Insulator https://www.40below.com/products_detail.php?ProductID=18 Kahtoola MicroSpikes https://amzn.to/2t7thxP Camp Stalker Crampons, Universal https://amzn.to/2TYrDh4 Garmont Momentum Snow Winter Boots https://go.magik.ly/ml/kajk/ Shawn’s MSR Denali Ascent Snowshoes https://amzn.to/2Ocf7Fp Frank’s Alps Snowshoes https://amzn.to/2UPJIex EMS Thunderhead Jacket https://go.magik.ly/ml/jtlo/ Polartec Military Fleece https://amzn.to/2Y8EqwD Hardshell Pants – Military ECWCS Gen III Trousers https://amzn.to/2WzloP4 Byer of Maine Tri-Light Camp Stool https://amzn.to/2GamV9m Olight Wave LED Headlamp https://amzn.to/2D443Vq TotalPac Packable Backpack https://amzn.to/2Yad1Kw Songs (via Artlist): Comeback by Vic Sage Chamberlain by FVMELESS *A commission may be earned from some links in this post.

DIY Ultralight Cookset - Dirt Cheap!  (3oz)
 
09:53
Making a ultralight cooking set for backpacking and hiking using household items without spending a dime. //////////////////////////////////////// Sure it's no Titanium pot, but it also didn't cost me $50 - $100. Honestly, I think the Titanium cook-sets look pretty cool, but I've got plenty of other hiking gear that I deserves an upgrade before I do that. For now, the solution was pretty simple: 1 Cat Can Stove - Made from a 3oz can of Fancy Feast Cat Food 1 29oz Tin Can - In my case, it was some canned tomatoes. They were quite tasty. Pieces of aluminum foil to use as a custom lightweight lid. Some denatured alcohol from my basement to use as a cheap, reliable fuel source. Plastic Water Bottle to hold the fuel. Total Weight without Fuel: 3oz Total Weight with enough Fuel for 4 batches of Ramen Noodles: 5.25oz Optional - 1 Light My Fire Spork (Any fast food utensile could work too) Optional - Plastic Medicine Cup to measure fuel (you know, from that old bottle of 'tussin) ///////////////////////////////////////// So there you have it, simple, effective, lightweight and practically free. Weight-wise it's hard to beat. Now, ounce for ounce, alcohol doesn't necessarily;y have the best weight to energy ratio, but where it shines is it's ability to scale to your needs. You can bring exactly as much (or little) as you need. Compare that to an MSR fuel canister (white gas etc) weighing in at about a half pound a piece. Of course, the canister / gas stoves stomp all over my little set-up in terms of cooking and boiling times. And don't even bring up the issue of melting snow, another win for the pressurized gas stove. Both systems have their advantages, so you'll have to take close a look at your needs before choosing what goes in your pack. For my needs though, this will work just fine. Now I'll just sit back and wait for someone to tell me how dangerous cooking in a tin can is for my health :D ///////////////////////////////////////////////// All content, including music and sound effects, is original and created by myself.

Solo Backpacking, Hiking & Camping with my Dog on the Halfmoon Mountain Loop in West Virginia. GPS Data at http://www.sintax77.com For this 2 day, 1 night spring backpacking trip, I’ll be hiking a 10.5 mile loop in the George Washington National Forest. For an easier read & more info, check out my full blog post: http://www.sintax77.com/hiking-halfmoon-mountain-camping-backpacking-in-west-virginia No permit is required to camp in the GWNF, but there are rules and regulations regarding backcountry camping. https://www.fs.usda.gov/activity/gwj/recreation/camping-cabins/?recid=73539&actid=34 Full GPS track data, including campsites, water sources, etc, for this trip can be downloaded in my blog post above. Trailhead Used: Bucktail Trailhead Parking Lot, N39° 00.834′ W78° 39.841′ 7629 Trout Run Road, Wardensville, WV 26851 The Bucktrail Trailhead parking area has plenty of room for a dozen or so vehicles and even some spots for horse trailers. Trails Used Day 1: Bucktail Trail At the intersection with the Bucktail Cutoff Trail, stay left (north) to stay on the Bucktail Trail. This begins the clockwise loop. Arrive at the footbridge, but don’t cross it. Head right (southeast) along the water to remain on the Bucktail Trail. There are multiple water crossings in the next mile. At the intersection, turn right (southwest) after the fire road gate, and head onto the pink blazed German Wilson Trail. Within a tenth of a mile, there will be the last heavy flowing water crossing. This is the last reliable chance to stock up on water for camp. Just after the water crossing, make a hard left (south) to continue on the German Wilson Trail. Make sure not to stay on the fire road, which continues to bend to the right . At the intersection with the white blazed Halfmoon Lookout Trail, head right (west), towards the summit of Halfmoon Mountain. Just before the summit, there is a spur trail that splits off to the left (south), towards a large camping area. It's also possible to camp up on the actual lookout area, but it is much smaller and more prone to wind. Setup camp Day 1 Mileage: 6.2 miles Day 1 Gross Elevation Gain: 1,878' Trails Used, Day 2: Backtrack out on the Halfmoon Lookout Trail At the intersection with the German Wilson Trail, continue straight (south) to stay on the white blazed Halfmoon Lookout Trail.

Maroon Bells Pt 1 - Road Trip! Philly to Aspen in 29 Hours
 
20:20
It’s 4:30 PM on a weekday. Can Mike and I make it from Philly to Aspen, Colorado by tomorrow night for a hike the next morning? Hop in and join us for the drive. http://www.sintax77.com For this multi-part adventure, we’ll be faced with two challenges. Phase 1 (seen in this video, Pt 1): Driving on a substantial time crunch from the east coast to Colorado, without any hotels or road food purchases. This will not only keep the budget low, but will also save us a ton of time by not having to check-in/out, be tempted to sleep in, decide where/what to eat, stand in lines etc. Sleeping will be done in the car (while the other person drives) and all meals will be comprised of cooler-stored left-overs and pre-purchased beverages. The only stops allowed: bathroom breaks and gas pumps. Phase 2 (covered in the next video, Pt 2) will be a multi-day hike of the Four Pass Loop, within the Maroon Bells Snowmass Wilderness, located just outside of Aspen Colorado (about 3 hours west of Denver). Departure time: 4:30 PM, after work on 8/30/16. Total Distance: 1,900 miles (one way) Time allowance: (yes, without speeding): 32 hours, which would get us to the trail head before midnight the next day. States traversed: Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado Vehicle: Honda Pilot equipped with queen size air mattress and Igloo Wheelie Cooler.

GPS Data at http://www.sintax77.com For this adventure, we’ll be revisiting an attempt at a hike that I originally did as a solo backpacking trip a few years back. A rather aggressive loop, chalking up 30+ miles and over 15,000 feet gross elevation gain, the plan was to give it another go while giving TJ an ultimate sampler platter of the White Mountains. As fate would have it, things would corkscrew towards another outcome… For an easier read, check out my complete trip report and blog post here: http://wp.me/p2ReUQ-i1 Trailhead Used: Imp Trailhead on Rt 16 – N44° 19.408′ W71° 13.016′ Full GPS track data and waypoints for various POI’s on this trip are available for download on Sintax77.com's Trip Data Page. http://www.sintax77.com/trip-data/ Trails Used, Day 1 (in order) Road hike north on Rt 16 to Dolly Copp Campground Daniel Webster Scout Trail Appalachian Trail South Sphinx Trail Camp along Sphinx Trail, just before junction with Great Gulf Trail Day 1 Mileage: 12.5 miles Day 1 Gross Elevation Gain: 6,661′ Trails Used, Day 2 (in order) Double back on Sphinx Trail Appalachian Trail South Trinity Heights Connector to Summit of Mt Washington Have a Chili Dog at the Summit Nelson Crag Trail Appalachian Trail South Great Gulf Trail Camp near Gulf Trail along ridge Day 2 Mileage: 9.2 miles Day 2 Gross Elevation Gain: 3,658′ Trails Used, Day 3 (in order) Great Gulf Trail Short road hike back to car parked at Imp Trail Head Day 3 Mileage: 3.9 Day 3 Gross Elevation Gain: 108′ Mileage Grand Total for Trip: 25.6 Gross Elevation Gain Grand Total for Trip: 10,319′ Want to help support the channel?

Red River Gorge Revisited - Kentucky Hiking, Hammock Camping & Backpacking
 
39:36
Join the crew as we revisit the Red River Gorge for 3 days of hiking, hammock camping and backpacking in Kentucky. GPS Data ar http://www.sintax77.com The Red River Gorge a unique Geological Area within Kentucky's Daniel Boone National Forest. This area hosts an impressive collection of natural arches (or natural bridges, as they're often call), spread across some relatively young forest in the hills of eastern Kentucky, about 1 hour shy of Lexington. The Red River Gorge has the highest concentration of rock arches east of the Rock Mountains (over 100). This makes Red River Gorge a visually impressive hiking area, as well as one of the world's top rock climbing destinations. This is actually my second exploration of the RRG. My first backpacking experience here was a solo hammock camping trip in October, a couple of years back. On that trip, I covered more ground and saw a nice sampling of the area's more well known arches, but helpful feedback from some of my viewers who were more versed in the area alerted me to the fact that I had missed out on some pretty cool unofficial trails and spots. In fact, I had walk right by a few of them. I made a mental note to get back down to the Red River Gorge some day and give it another go. Finally, the opportunity arose for that trip, and to sweeten the deal, I managed to round up an outdoor posse for this renewed exploration the RRG. This time around, I'll be joined by my wife as well as my friend Mike and his wife Danielle. And while my last trip was a 2 day, higher mileage affair, we decided to extend this backpacking trip to 3 days and to drop the mileage back a bit to create a trip with more emphasis on time to relax at camp. Actually, our night two camp site was one of the very areas that several viewers had suggested I check out on my next visit - an unofficial (but completely legal) camping spot called Hanson's Point. The actual point has an amazing view out into the gorge, and the nearby camping opportunities are large, flat, and nicely shaded. The route we chose for this trip starts out at the same trailhead as my previous Red River Gorge trip video, but shortly after starting, it deviates onto an unofficial spur trail for another viewer suggested feature, called Indian Staircase. This area offers an impressive view into the gorge as well. It also boasts a pretty cool feature that gives it it's name - a series of foot and hand holds carved into it's sandstone face to assist with traversing it's steep grade. As the name would suggest, legend says that local Native Americans originally created these features, but who actually created these carvings remains a mystery and the source of some debate. Regardless of the true history, it's a very cool place and well worth checking out. While I didn't personally find the route overly steep or exposed, it should be pointed out that this trail could be a bit nerve wracking for some sensitive to heights. Leaving you pack stashed at the base is certainly helpful and will save you a few ounces of sweat as well. GPS track data along for each day's hiking route, along with waypoints for campsites and other points of interest, can be downloaded on my Trip Data page.

Ultralight Backpacking in the Cranberry Wilderness
 
01:08:11
Come along for 3 days of Ultralight Backpacking and fall Camping in West Virginia's Cranberry Wilderness. GPS Data & Gear List at http://www.sintax77.com For this adventure, I'll be taking my newly refined ultralight backpacking loadout for a three day overnight hiking and camping trip in West Virginia's Cranberry Wilderness. After my last couple of vista-packed trips, I've had some requests for more footage & discussion once we get to camp - site selection, shelter setup, fire making, cooking, etc. Well, this video has plenty of all that, and then some. In fact, this ended up being my longest feature length video so far. For those of you looking for something a little lighter, there's a full back catalog of shorter videos that might hit the spot, but if you're ready to get into the finer details of ultralight backpacking gear and spending time outdoors (from my own warped perspective of course), then this is the video for you. A little gift for the hardcore fans ;) Full trip report available on my website here: http://www.sintax77.com/ultralight-backpacking-in-the-cranberry-wilderness/ Parking: North South Trailhead on State Route 150 38.276530, -80.237829 Trails Used Day 1 Start at North South Trail Head on West Virginia SR 150 TR 688 North South Trail TR 267 Laurelly Branch Trail TR 271 Middle Fork Trail Setup Camp on Hell for Certain Branch This is a large campsite across from trail on opposite side of the Middle Fork River with plenty of fresh water available from the nearby river.

The elevation was around 4,400 feet and the landscape was somewhat conducive to wind, so be prepared for temps that are possibly quite a bit lower than locally forecasted.

13:21
How to remove the wood furniture from your AK. ////// These steps should work for any AK pattern rifle. You'll also get an overview of the standard field strip procedure and re-assembly process for those of you new to the lovely AK platform. As you can see, take down and reassembly is a breeze with this weapon system. Removing the wood fore-grips, gas-tube cover and rear butt stock is a little more involved but not too bad once you know a few simple steps. The AKM featured in this video is a semi-auto 7.62x39 WASR-10 GP10/63, equipped with a UTG double rail side mount, Barska reflex style red dot sight, and Houge finger groove pistol grip. The orginal Romanian wood has been refinished with Cabot Red Oak stain and many coats of wipe-on poly. Link to "WASR-10 (AK-47) Refinished " video: http://youtu.be/uW1JRxCw-ps
