No V, X Y or Z for me.
Dutch in the buff?
Well done - The entire Wilderness Area is great. Looks like you had a great trip. Wet feet are a part of it...not much you can do but use a system that is quick drying (which it looks like you did).
Hello fellow NYers. All aboard the HF espresso.

All aboard the HF express!
That winter camping tarp is incredible! What is it made of?
just under 121 miles left and I have a 56 mile trip planned for next weekend. Thanks for watching.
:) keeping him young (he is just a bit older than me)
Next weekend the 56 mile section...
After over a year of not sharing the trail with my old friend Woopsie, we take off on a 27 mile jaunt on the Long Trail together. Once we stage cars we take off on a terrific afternoon for a short...
Not able this weekend, have fun!
Congratulations on the weight loss. The walk through the Rhodo's was nice.
To walk in a mans shoes prior to passing judgment of him.
If you buy them with straps he sews them on (at least that's what has happened for me). If you buy the clips alone they come that way.
I I'll offer this. I've never had a leak. Good luck. https://youtu.be/hMoPfv7t0dc
:) thanks for that!
If you ever get a chance, invite me! I'll gladly go again!
Thank you, the LT is a special place :)
Right On Jaxx, thanks! You eating some of that crunchy taco meat while you watch :)
I was rattled by the lightening, to say the least. The shelter was a welcome site. Thanks for sticking with it, slow time is a good for a little YouTube! :)
Yes indeed! You have to be, getting closer. I have 3 more trips scheduled to complete - if things go well!
For sure. Thanks for watching!
Sleeping in the rain ... priceless!
I use silnet. Here is a video showing how I do it. I hope this helps.
On Mnt Wilson, behind Emily Proctor shelter, it got down to 44F Saturday night. Division 6 doesn't have much for elevation changes (20 miles) or vistas - Division 5 has a 2,500' climb to Killington...
Father's Day Weekend I headed back to the Green Mountain state for Division 6 of the Long Trail. Hiking with my friend Kevin we stage the cars late Friday night, but leave enough time for dinner,...
Thanks G-Nut. Leaning how to edit is an ongoing process to say the least :)
...and clean up after a bunch of hogs.
Thank you CR, I would bet you will meet some great folks. I think the hardest part of my solo hikes is the first 4 hours on the trail. Once I get beyond that I find my groove and just love it. Being...
Not a regret in the world. It is a key piece of my gear when I was in the final stages of reducing my load.
Great to see you and Wandern' out and about again. When the sun is heading down you create some of the most magical video there is. The silhouette of you on this trip as well as the "purple" lake...
At Stratton I was at my 10.5LBS base weight plus about 3 pounds of food and fuel or so. Water was maxed at 40z.
It is an Suunto ABC watch. It has altimeter, barometer, thermometer, compass and it...
Thank you - the Half-Wit has been good to me, light, bug free and comfy! Thank you for the note and for following along. - Rob
Thanks for that - my family was certainly on my mind! :)
You got that right! I hope all is well for you and On Time! Thanks for the note!
Thank you sir!
Hitting the trail early on day 7 after a stormy, fishy night at Greenwall shelter brings me to many a vista and waterfall as I work my way to breakfast at Minerva Hinchey shelter. From there I meet...
Nice - back to the trail tonight, Division 6 this weekend! 7 and part of 8 next.
Well done Doogie, but I thought you knew green was my favorite quilt color? Now you will have to redo it in green!
Also, nice job with the editing, which software did you get?
Vermont is a beautiful state...or were you talking about me? ;)
Thanks for the note!
Thank you Snugs. It will be done and posted for Fathers Day morning. :)
When Dutch came out with the Half Wit hammock about a week before I was leaving for my 8 day, 107 mile hike on the Long Trail I decided to pull the trigger and get one. To say I was apprehensive...
Thanks you. The Long Trail is a gem! I appreciate you watching and commenting. - Rob
See, that is the thing, I wasn't thinking! I should have never indulged in a whole spammich sandwich...too...
Swimming or scouting??? that is the question? Looks like family fun time to me! :)
I only have the camo and agree with Mad, however I would like to get (or try) white at some point to see the difference.
Ahh yes! ;)
Haha, got it! I'm working away in it - hope to have it completed. How about Father's Day Morning?
What size is the pack and hip belt?
No sardines for me - that was Hare doing all of the eating!
That was a bit much for me - as close to it as I have ever been! Thanks for watching along.
Yes sir, heading back this weekend for Division 6, then the following weekend for 7 and part of 8!...
Welcome aboard, originally for Potsdam, now in CNY.
Thanks! I am working on Part 4, which will be the last from the 8 day trip currently. I am glad I am spending the next 2 weekends back on the LT, more footage :)
You are welcome - thanks for...
In part 3 I wake up at William B Douglas shelter, make my way to my food cache near Rt 11, then up and over Bromley Mountain. After that I meet up with Tom and his Notch....Bad Tom, No Good Tom, Mad...
I have said it many a time on purpose, however heading up Stratton was as organic as it comes.
Whoooo Buddddy :)
