    Talking ViDEO: Snowbank Trail Loop BWCA PART 1

    Been over 4 months since this old feller has gotten out on the trail. Went back to do the SnowBank Trail loop in the BWCA in Northern Minnesota out Ely way. Took my buddy Wander'nFool along for the trek. It was....dare I say....Awesome))))) Yeah, it was that good.
    My knee held up wonderfully. Felt good and strong. Thanks Knee Doc.
    Toted the Gossamer Gear Gorilla Pack and it rode on my back like a cloud. Strap on and go.

    Thanks.

    I have only ever canoed in the BWCA, I really need to go do some hiking up there. Great video looks like it was beautiful for hiking and sleeping.

    Another awesome video and always love the picking. Seeing as I haven't been out and or going out into the piney woods anytime soon (twin boys on the way and their knocking on mommys belly to get out) I'll live vicariously through yours and wonderin fools adventures. Can't wait for part 2,3,4 mabey even a 5. Thanks Shug.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    I love the foot-paths up there. Give it a go sometime. Still need a permit though.

    About time for a Shug vid! Glad to hear the knee held up well.

    When you started singing your impromptu "Shug and Wanderin Fool" song, it immediately reminded me of Michael Jeter's scene in The Fisher King where he's wearing the red dress and sings to Lydia that she's won free videos.

    You're Michael Jeter and Wanderin Fool is Lydia:

    On the serious side just glad WanderingFool wasn't hurt. I've flipped in the Traveler and didn't come up laughing.
    Forgot to ask-official clown shoes at the beginning?
