    Wink Video: Fronkey vs. The Tree part 2

    We take it full circle in this last video of my recent trip to the SHT.

    Lunch time on the Kadunce River, the full tree attack video and Pincushion mountain are some of the things to see in this final installment.

    Some times things happen on the trail, but it sure beats staying at home. I sure do love my life! Thanks for taking the time to watch my goofy antics!

    Sorry to see the tree attack, but you seem to have recovered well. Loved the video....

    Wow, Ninja Birch! Always one of my fears, getting hurt on a solo, but glad you made it thru OK. Bet that left a hekofa bruise!

    Sometimes the sequel doesn't live up to the original but not so in this case. Thanks for giving us the full experience!

    My favorite quote "Holly, my girlfriend, I'm still going hiking" Haha love it! I laugh because it would say the same thing to my GF.
    Hopefully, we can get some trail time together soon...but only if you're not going to attract falling trees..lol
    But seriously, great vid! Glad you are doing ok...
    Just when I thought you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this... and totally redeem yourself!

    Dale Gribble: I'm thinking, "new hammock." For me, laying and swaying in a hammock is like a steady morphine drip without the risk of renal failure.

    Randy : yea but just remember yer roots and where ya come from....you got Hennessy in yer blood son......

    Great video! Now I have to add trees to the list of things that can attack me in the woods.... Lions, and tigers, and bears, and trees! Oh, my!
