VIDEO: Bluefin's Solo Overnight Hike Part One
I just noticed that one video scene plays a second time from 9:04 to 11:27. I'm working on an edit...please bear with me.
I just did an overnight hike from Tors Cove to LaManche on the East Coast Trail in Newfoundland. It was only about 10 kilometres but it was my first hiking overnight.
I have hiked and camped quite a bit and sometimes alone but never did a hike and overnight on my own totally unsupported. It was great and I learned quite a bit on this trip. It got dark before I reached my campsite but I was quite familiar with the trail. Used my dehydrated meals that I made my self. Used one Mountain house dinner to try it out and is was surprisingly good ( I was hungry )
The hammock gear worked great. I have used this many times before. The only thing I really need now is a water filter of some sort. I did take 3 1/2 litres of water with me but that was quite heavy.
My base weight minus food and water was just over 15 pounds. My sleeping bag is 3 pounds on it's own. I will be replacing it with a burrow from Hammock gear soon.
The weather was good and I had a good time. I took a video that is about 27 minutes long so I broke it into 2 parts. I will post the second video as soon as it loads to You tube.
Hope you watch and please comment
