  1. Thanks for playing along Don. All really good stuff and that little grin at the end says it all. Haha

  2. Good 5, lightweight gear looks solid, tonybis awesome guy for sure

  3. I like your 5, definitely awesome picks. One of my favorites pieces of gear that you and Tony @ blue collar backcountry always have with you is those adventurous smiles, that tells me you guys love being out there on the trail. Seriously do like you gear choices 👍🏻 I gotta try those socks

    Great spot, I really enjoyed seeing what you rely on when your on trail. It really helps to see what you are using and works, verses trying to figure these things out at the outfitters. My knowledge of gear is dated and my oldschool gear is way heavy. I have made some improvements, but I still have a way to go to be ready for my thru hike attempt. Your commentary on your tent and quilt were very helpful and I am going to be checking those out. Thanks again for taking the time to post and make these videos, I always find yours to be so enjoyable. JT. from Oregon

  7. Hey thanks for the tag Don! Enjoyed your top 5. I’ll be getting that out real soon!

  8. Love that quote from Earl Shaffer. Nice gear picks. I’ve got Loner’s book—full of useful information. And I like Gary’s book too.

    Hey Smilin' Don! Cool video and it was fun seeing your pics, especially that one of your favorites was your spork! Thanks so much for the shout-out for Painted Blazes (+ great review on Amazon). Also thanks for tagging me, it does make you think about what's in our packs and look forward to doing a video. However I won't be able to match your awesome graphics and video production! Great job! Loner

    The AT was something i always wanted to do Don,some hike.A bit closer to home is the Camino de Santiago which is another great hike/pilgrimage.Seem to remember a countryman of yours,Bill Bryson,wrote a good book once about the AT,The lost continent was also a good one by him.Hope all's well over there.

  12. Thanks so much for the shout out!! I truly appreciate your kind words and now the pressure is on to make a new video. This should be a lot of fun and it will give me a chance to mention some of my favorite hikers as well. Take care and I will let you know when I make the video, gonna give it some serious thought.
