    Cool Fronkey's Thru-Hike Part 1

    Your friendly neighborhood Fronkey is back from his walk in the woods.

    I made another attempt to thru-hike the Superior Hiking Trail this year, but this time I didn't do it alone. I brought my 18 year old cousin who had never backpacked a day in his life on this little adventure. Things got tough out there and it wasn't easy teaching a noob on such a big trip, I even kind of lost himtoo.

    Come join us along on part 1 of our thru-hike of the Superior Hiking Trail.

    Glad to see you back Fronkey! Was just wondering where both you and Raul had gone off to! Looking forward to the vid.

    Love the pink hammock - nearly glows in the dark! Good choice handing that over to the noob who needs to earn his stripes.


    Except he seems to have handled some real mileage very quickly!

    Best hiking video ever! Hopefully I won't fall off the edge of my seat waiting for round two.

    Great return video. Glad to see you're still on the trail. I've lost hiking partners before too, and it's a sinking feeling you can never shake, especially when they are noobs.

    I look foreword to the ongoing adventures!

    What do they say, real men sleep in pink. It was something like that.
