VIDEO : Greg & Thunder go back to the Sierra Mountains
It seems to be the week for new hiking videos doesn't it?
In this video "Thunder the Wonder Puppy" and I hike a loop around the Carr/Feeley lake area. Also in this video we discuss a brand new backpack, backpacking as a weight loss program, The Origin of the hammock addiction, and we close with a little mandolin madness.
I'm just going to put all the parts here in the same thread.
"All the parts!?"
Yeah, I guess I talk a lot. :)
Here's Greg & Thunder in the Sierras Part 2
In this part we discuss slimy water, set up camp, tell the "buying the backpack" story, we wake up after a cold and frosty night, I show the stupidest piece of gear I've ever bought, and we watch some geese.
Part 3 finished faster than I expected. So here it is.
In the final episode we search for Middle Lake, find the fork to Glacier Lake, go Tenkara Fishing, and head for home. And you get to hear one of my guitar compositions.
Nice Greg. I was just north of you at Castle Peak on the same day. Beautiful weather. Perfect for being outdoors. Congratulations on the new pack and good job on the weight loss program. Waiting on the second installment of Greg & Thunder.
Great videos Greg. Sounds like you finally got the pack dialed in - gotta love REI for their return policy!
Good video's greg. I don't know how your Pack shoulder straps are constructed but if there is some 3/4" webbing running down the centre attached at various points then you can take some 1/8" shock cord, about 12" worth, put it through one of the spaces under the webbing and add a cord lock. If your using bicycle water bottles you just put them through the shock cord loop and tighten the cord lock. There on ULA packs and i've found i like it allot . Here's a pic.
Bill, I saw those on one of their videos. I was thinking of giving that a try. That's a good idea.
I may have to go to a hydration system, but every one I've ever had has gone bad with a funky taste. No matter how I clean them they still taste bad so I end up not drinking enough water.
Hi there GregB! That sure is a nice place to hike and I liked that you pointed out where you were last time. My floppy hat is off to you for dropping so much weight! Making this and making that, yes, youíre addicted all right! Thatís good and thatís perfectly normal! lol Thanks for the video and Iíll see YOU in part two!
Yes, thatís a great view for the night. I liked you backpack story, it worked out real well, 50 buck well! Youíre gunna love having an under quilt! Be careful, they are at least as addictive as hammocks!
Middle Lake has turned into Little Lake. Super fine place to go fishing and that fishing set up is pretty nifty! Be sure to make fun of your tent dweller friend for being a ground dweller. Thanks for the videos, GregB, very enjoyable!
Great video series! Thank you for sharing your adventure with us!
Had a good time. Thanks for posting. Nice guitar work. For some reason it has a bit of a "Time in a bottle" esque feel to me (that's probably just me?) :) I liked it.
By the way, I love my Osprey. Nice choice. :)
Greg the music is beautiful. I think the video series was great. Very nice job.Thank you!
Watched the first one. Your guitar work is really working well on your video. Glad to see you so enthusiastic out there.
