    I loved the homage to Euell Gibbons! I've done one of those too.

    Looked like a nice trip. I have to get me one of the stickpics, looks like they work real well.

    I got the Euell reference immediately.. Poor dude... Poor **** Cavett... If I remember correctly Euell Gibbons died mid interview during a commercial break. (Wikipedia does not mention that tidbit so I may not remember properly.)
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Nicely done again shugster! Always anticipating a new video when going onto YouTube. How do you pack your catalyst. After watching your video on your warming up trek you showed all your gear , but man how'd you pack all that and get it to fit. Food bottom or hammock bottom I'm curios. Teach me oh great hiking master. My glass is empty for your wisdom.

    TY

    Always fun to see your videos. Got a chuckle when you showed the swiss miss packet.

    Just curious if you are mainly a solo hiker? Does the family do any hikes or hangs?

    Also, any entertaining on the schedule for northern Illinois or therebouts?

    Swiss Miss is funny ain't it? Yes, i am mainly a solo hiker ... gets my groove going that piney wood solitude. My wife and daughter just let me go... they know I love it so and come home a better man. My wife will "Cadillac Camp" at a Good Campground if I do all the cooking and stuff but not too much anymore.
    No Illinois gigs right now ... Wish so. Thanks for the interest though.....
