    Thanks dude! When you make it to the SHT. Let me know and we'll hike some miles.

    I like her.
    Sad, no wolf with my cuben.
    You can borrow mine.
    You look SERIOUSLY bundled!
    It really was cozy.
    Split Rock River=deja vu, been there
    Done that
    Answering Caleb's question. No.
    He says thanks
    He'll smoke the marine training.
    I hope so
    Thanks to Ms.Yeager
    I looked her up. Cool woman.
    No water in 10, death nail for me.
    It wasn't fun and we weren't drinking the jello
    Legs dont get cold, I can relate.
    Once you get moving, they take care of themselves
    Purple gaiters rule HA! kinda go with the sweet pinky air bridge.
    We scared people when we rolled into camp
    Love the warm days and frigid nights.
    It makes hiking fun
    Full campsites everywhere. Stealthing sometimes has to happen.
    There was no way around it
    Can you ship a JuicyLucy?
    What's your address
    More solar flares! Love 'em.
    BOOM!
    Who won? Yep, both contestants are super winners.
    Tala won actually. lol
    OK being honest, McDonalds was a let down. Watching you inhale there a let up
    We did get the Juicy lucys' the next day. But, man those burgers tasted good
    Feel like we got to know Caleb a bit....good kid....good cousin taking him.
    Thank you
    Loved the series Fronkey. Looking forward to the next big adventure.
    Oh man, wait until you see what I am working on next
    Car is loaded and happysurprised I got to see the last installment!
    Have an awesome time on your trip
    MM
    Thanks for watching.

    OK 270 miles for you fronkey remember losing Caleb on day 1.

    It was so cool to login each morning for these last couple days and find a new fronkey video to start my morning with I really enjoyed them.
    Thanks man. My next big adventure should keep your morning busy for a couple weeks. I have something HUGE in the works.

    Second of all, darn you for introducing me to Canicross gear. That's one more thing for me to become obsessive about. I was going to ask you what that was until you mentioned canicross in your credits. That looks exactly like what I need to use with Thunder. Right now I just have his retractable leash clipped to my pack belt with a carabiner. At his end he's on a gentle leader. He doesn't pull me at all, it's just a way to keep him close and in control.

    Oh, the show "Man Vs. Food" just did a piece on the Juicy Lucy (or "JucyLucy" depending on where you get it) and the controversy over who invented it. Who do you think made it first?
    If you need help with your canicross gear PM me and I'll send you links to what I used.
    The 5-8 club is where I go. Mmmm Mmmm

    You have a very natural storyteller's way about you. Not too often found.
    Thank you dragon. That is really cool of you to say.

    Now to start planning your next adventure. After the gear list video, of course.
    Tala does steal the show. Darn her cuteness.
    Both are in the works!

    A great set of vids I'll no doubt watch again a few times.

    Enjoy the R&R, the lasagne, taking the trash out, work, cleaning the house, walking the dogs and making up for lost time with your good lady


    When's the next one?
    Thank you. The next big trip is in a few months and will make this one look like a backyard hang.

    Thanks.
    I think Shug and I are the same with making videos in the sense that we don't plan anything. We kind of go out there and the videos just make themselves.

    So, when are you going to come back up and do it again? You realize the new section connecting to the Duluth sections will be completely open next year, right? You can hike all the way to Jay Cooke State Park once that section is done (and once Jay Cooke reopens).
    Let's just say I'll have that done before they officially add it on.

    Wish I could have joined you. Would have had bounced one of my kilts and made Caleb wear it to cross the finish line

    Stay gangsta my brotha from an amphibian motha
    It was still really cool of you to do that man and I do appreciate it.

    Also, your cousin needs a trail name or he's going to get stuck with "Fronkey's Cousin from Florida" which just doesn't roll off the tongue.

    The 80 pound packs in the Corps will be a bit different, but knowing that he did the SHT on his first ever backpacking trip, he'll probably think boot camp isn't so bad.
    Tala's gear will be in the video.
    His trail name is "Yeah yeah" Everytime you told him something he would reply with , "Yeah?" It got kind of annoying actually.

Can anyone say "Annual (Inter?)National HF Group Hang?" That would be epic.

    I look forward to seeing a "What's in my pack" video from you when you get a new camera. Like Davigilante, I'd also be very interested in hearing about the wolf's gear too.
    That would be a fun hang to be at.
    Tala's gear list will be in the video too and thanks a bunch for watching.

    You own the little women BIG TIME for driving 5 hours just for you! Was that one way, did she really do 10 hours? Where did you get those purple and white socks from??? Your fun filled crapy camera works ok. PIZZA! If Caleb gave the pink hammock a 12 out of 10, imagine how much he’ll like a normal colored hammock! The dog is spending a lot of time in snooze land, I wonder why. lol

    I’ve been crunching the numbers and it doesn't matter how I look at it, 250 miles or 402 kms over 14 days is incredibly good going! You are both super troupers, that’s for sure. To do that, you averaged 17.8 miles or 28.7 kms pre day, that really is super amazing! My floppy hat is well and truly off to you both!

    “We look like two homeless people.” LOL Thanks for the videos, Fronkey, they were both fun and exhausting to watch!

    Great stuff, Fronkey. I thoroughly enjoyed this trip and shared these videos with many of my non-hammocking friends, and they enjoyed them as well.

    Keep it up.

    Jealous, wish I was there or was able to take 14 days in a row off! Fantastic achievement, I believe life has gotten in my way of being able to accomplish any thru hikes greater than 150 miles....sad, I got started so late in life.
