    Red face Video: Fronkey vs. The Tree part 1

    And here we go!

    I made a recent thru-hike attempt of the Superior Hiking Trail which was cut short do to a battle with nature. Starting from the northern most section I began my adventure and had a great time out there in the woods. Filled with it's flowing rivers, amazing overlooks and crashing waterfalls, the SHT just amazes me.

    Sorry for the delay in posting this report. I have had quite the difficulty in thinking of a way to put in the tree falling video without taking away all the fun I had out there. But, I think I've come up with a good way to show everyone and keep it fun.

    We kick off with a blast from the past and I start to show you the beginning of my journey on the SHT. Thanks for watching and Part 2 coming soon!

    Just finished watching part 1. Great video, well done.

    Wanted to ask, are you caching food along the way or buying it as you hit little towns?

    thanks

    Well done, Fronkey. Love the Dropkick Murphys. Try to work a little Flogging Molly into the next one.
