    Arrow Booby Trap Creek

    Mt Barney circuit hike, with new terrain and highlight of the hike being, Mt Barney Gorge. There are nine official ways to climb Mt Barney and a total of 30, including the unofficial, ways to the top, This is the third way I’ve climbed up Mt Barney, but about the fifth, or sixth time I’ve climbed it. It’s one of those places that has a special “feel” about it, I enjoy being out there and I hope you enjoy coming along for the hike with me.

    That was probably the best way to let my spicy italian pasta concoction settle.

    Seeing snakes (love the python!), great Ozzie views and enjoying your company (so to speak) while sipping a cold beer.

    How much water do you (approx.) use with the shower? I got the Sea2Summit shower too but don't use it too much. Iirc testing it with 9 liters it gave me a shower of 8 minutes ....

    Thanks for sharing.

    Looks like a great trip, thanks for taking us along. That looked like one heck of a climb through the rocks and boulders.
    Everyone ought to believe in something....I believe I'll go set up the hammock!

    Looked to be a great time, Brucie. Thanks for bringing us along. And I feel your pain with the rolled ankle, mine do that quite a lot as well.

    Hello, born2roam,

    It’s good when there’s a video to watch just when you’re ready to watch one. Spicy... chilli kind of spicy I hope. The python was pretty good. The other one was small and looked really small on the video. It was only about 8 or 9 inches long, fast though. Pasta, and a video washed down with a coldy sounds like a good time to me.

    I use as little water as possible. I’ve got the Sea2Summit pocket shower (probably the same as yours) and I about one quarter to one third fill it. At a guess, I’d say it would be 3 to 4 litres, a bit less than a gallon. That gives me about 3 or 4 minutes of shower time. The less cold water I put in it, the less hot water I have to add to take the chill out of it. I might show how I hang it from trees, in a future video. I’ve come up with an easier way to do it that makes it easier to find the right tree for the job.

    Hammock camping is great, hammock camping “clean” is even better. I find I sleep better in my hammy, if a have a shower.

    Anyway, born2roam, thanks for taking the time to watch the video and thanks for your comments!

    Hi there, 2ply! Yeah, it was a great trip, shorter than expected, but still great! It was a heck of a “good” climb through the rocks and boulders, I really enjoyed it and will be doing it again, maybe up then back down the next day. Thanks for commenting!

    You’re welcome for the bring along, Catavarie! It seems to be that when I start rolling ankles, it’s easy to get on a roll, so to speak, and keep doing them. Strangely, the next day, both ankles were a bit on the sore side, but they came good in a couple of days.

    That sounds like a plan, OutandBack. As I type this, it’s about 2AM in the U.S. so you’ll be fast a sleep dreaming of the next time you get to hang in your hammock. Wait a minute, it’s only 11:56 in Denver, so maybe you’re not in Z land yet.

    Just finished. Excellent video Bruciehi5 as always.
    That was some serious rock scrambling.
    Hiking up an a stream bed was a very cool idea.
    Who cares if there not a lot of miles it the journey that counts and that journey was beautiful.
    One will never get up close and personal with nature flying down a trail.

    I did have a couple questions.
    TV from the hammock? Recorded movie, streaming TV from the internet? Please elaborate.
    Are you required to sleep in the established camp grounds or can you setup camp anywhere?

    Thanks again for the great entertainment.

    Good video Brucie. Its tough work hiking up stream beds but is fun as well, as long as you don't have to get anywhere. My favorite trips are the ones that just unfold. I never care about the miles, just the adventure. I really liked the bird calls in the middle of the video, especially the one that was loud and whip like sounding. Such different sounds than i'm use to. Beautiful Python. Take care of that ankle. Thanks

    Loved the video! That's an amazing snake, but I agree those are some WILD bird calls - That would freak me out if I heard those in the middle of the night! Guess it's all a matter of what you're used to . . .

    Oh and hey, major fav points for the wireless mic setup (very impressive to us sound engineers!)
