I've been eating a lot of meals from Hawk Vittles and Packit Gourmet lately. Everything I've tried from both companies has been great. WAY better in my opinion than MH.They are ok, especially when you're hungry after hiking! But, Mtn House is better. Sometime when I remember, I want to try some other brands that Shug has shown just to do something different. Maybe next trip.
I'm not a big fan of the packaging of Hawk Vittles though. I steep cook my meals in a cozy and once you open their meals you can't get a true seal on the tops of the bags.
The Packit Gourmet meals come packaged in a zip top bag that's much easier to work with when steep cooking.
Nice vid mate, thanks for the hike along and I agree with MAD777, Chief behaves great and listens pretty well!
Looks like a nice trip ... big thumbs up to Chief ... now that's a well behaved ... fine looking beast!

A great looking hiking partner you have there. I just ordered a Ruffwear palisade pack for my lab and I am wondering how long it took you to get Chief used to wearing his?
I'd suggest putting just the harness on the dog, and then going for a walk around the neighborhood. Take a few walks with it before putting the pack on, and maybe try gradually increasing the weight from an empty pack up to a normal load.
