this is great ever since I was a little kid I always wanted to go on an African safari that maybe I see something up ahead this is a big one guys keep your hands inside the vehicles they do have a tendency to nip of all the places on our planet that are considered biodiverse one of the wildest to visit is South Africa's Eastern Cape throughout the 19th century and well into the 20th this province was heavily used for stock farming and as a result settlers began exterminating the surrounding African wildlife to protect their families and livestock this overly aggressive hunting resulted in many indigenous animals becoming greatly in danger and in some cases pushed to extinction over the last few decades there has been a radical change in attitude toward wildlife conservation and private game reserves have joined in the large-scale reintroduction of iconic species to this area today we are visiting the renowned tarika Game Reserve this family owned and operated establishment is the perfect South African safari destination spanning over 10,000 hectares Carrigg is landscape and topography is arguably the most beautiful of all the Eastern Cape reserves and is the perfect place to safely get up close with the menagerie species from the comfort of an open game Drive vehicle what's going on coyote pack right now we are on location in South Africa staying at the curriculum Reserve and what we're gonna do today is head out on a good old-fashioned south african safari to do this we're gonna gear up in this Land Cruiser and show our field guide is gonna drive us around Mark's gonna be behind the main camera mario is going to be on the b roll camera getting some epic shots and i'm gonna help identify the species using this trusty field gun so if you guys are ready let's head out there and see what sort of animals we can find this is actually really nice traversing the environment in a vehicle we're used to being on wet but to experience a classic African safari you really have to drive we're gonna be sticking to the park roads today guys while I'm trying to convince Joe for us to go off-roading these vehicles are specifically designed to stay on the trails but that's okay because she tells us we're going to see all kinds of animals for guys it's an ostrich it's how close we can get your guys it's a very slow roll here she goes look at that speed get that shot Mario I'm getting her running away and there's the mail I can see the mail in the background come right over to the vehicle that's what I thought it's a gala gala gala – actually it's an ostrich which is technically a modern-day avian dinosaur but it's amazing how much the ostrich looks like the famous dinosaur known as the Gallimimus that we saw in the first dress park movie you guys remember that scene when Dr Grant Tim and Lex were walking across the grasslands and all of a sudden they came flocking toward them unfortunately the ostrich are flocking in that direction and not toward us but still we got some pretty epic b-roll shots well the reality is the first animal of the day ends up being the ostrich all right let's move on oh yeah I think we have something other than ostrich there we go what's that alright guys this is one of two things either the blue wildebeest or the black wildebeest let me get out the field guy here and see if I'm going to identify which one it is and according to this those are blue wildebeest and you can kind of see in the right sunlight they almost have a bluish tinge to their skin you can see that they're just munching through some of that underbrush enjoying this beautiful sunset and none of them want to actually show their faces for the camera come on a buck shots must be protecting their young or just are a little camera-shy Mario how's your shot looking it's good I got the one that's looking at me and then the rest of them are showing me their buds talk about an epic set of horns hi guys thanks good you scared them away let's check it off the list why'd you pull the list out got it here we go okay there we go that brings a grand total to two animals we've only got a bad 31 to go here we go alright better fire it up keep going alright friends kind of bumpy yet everything here in South Africa is bumpy every time we've been in a vehicle just seems to be a bumpy road hey Eddie I see something up ahead it's a big one guys keep your hands inside the vehicles they do have a tendency to nip Wow look at that we have a little female Impala three of them and three zebra there's a really interesting fact that most people probably didn't know because it's often being asked what color is a zebra is it black with white stripes or is it white with black stripes and in fact the zebra skin is black so the zebra is black with white stripes pretty cool huh well we put that to rest oh whoa whoa whoa yeah it's best it's why keep your hands inside the vehicle all times look at that that is a young Impala in training right there duking it out with a larger male likely his daddy what he's doing is learning how to butt heads that oftentimes happens in the herd they do this for a territorial display of dominance as you can see the dads now liking his son spacing good job son okay we've got the Impala check and the zebra that makes four animals ladies and gentlemen we are on a roll this is great ever since I was a little kid I always wanted to go on an African safari oh I see some giraffes over there guys mr. giraffe I think it's one of everyone's favorites out there watching that's pretty cool look at that it's a calf milking from her mother now maybe you didn't know this but a female giraffe is called a cow a male is called a bull and of course that would mean that the juvenile is called a calf that's pretty good size calf to be still drinking from its mother there they go disappearing into the underbrush and there are many giraffe out here on the reserve so we may see some more while we're here but Mario did you get a close shot of those ones yeah I did nice as we travel deeper into the park and continued our course across the rolling grasslands it was apparent that our surroundings were alive with animals alright guys we've entered the next section of the park I do see some Impala you see those pretty frequently it looks like we have a skeleton or something up here you sure right through there look at that let's pull up a little bit we got another animal that is alive you know I know what it is Mario what is that it's an Ayala and they allah' mm-hmm it's an Ayala and now it's gone or in yalla shot oh yeah Lucky's up here probably coming out to us they're babies those are vervet monkeys right there the most common monkey species they will find in this area we've got a little group right there playing in the Setting Sun this is a great show well how about that guys now we can cross monkeys off list all right guys roll it up on the Rhino right now so we're super quiet okay guys just off the side of the vehicle here we have five rhinos these are white rhinos and they are absolutely incredible so huge these giant grazing animals out here in the grasslands now white rhinos specifically focus on eating grasses it's almost like a vacuum cleaner the way they mow across the grass and just Chomp Chomp Chomp Chomp Chomp all day long just feasting on these grasses quite intimidating – from this distance we're about 50 feet away from them and they are huge you've got a big bowl some cows and a couple of calves you see rhinos like this you just sit back and absorb it all in it's incredible just wash them out there in the Setting Sun like grazing that is pretty cool well I would definitely say that this was a successful safari for me personally I would say that the white rhino is my favorite how about you mark well since you already picked the Rhino I will go with giraffe and Mario how about you I like the wildebeest now the wildebeests are pretty cool huh well guys if you get the chance come out here and visit cricket game reserve I promise you it is an adventure you will never forget I'm coyote Peterson be brave stay wild we'll see on the next location with the Sun sinking low in the sky our return to the lodge was inevitable and I came to the realization that it is impossible to cover Kerekes expanse of wilderness in a single Safari yet despite the fact that we needed to return home in just a matter of hours we saw an impressive collection of species throughout the eastern cape province there are multiple wildlife sanctuaries that aim to protect and preserve the indigenous animals and their environments the cricket gamers service without question one of the best and is renowned for being home to the iconic Big Five which includes lions elephants rhinos buffalo and leopards if you would like to go on a safari or get involved with one of their conservation initiatives make sure to visit

planning your own itinerary is great but sometimes it's nice to let somebody else take the reins and that someone was an 18-ton truck named mamacita and a gang of 22 misfits the tour company I chose to travel where through this leg of the journey was dragged Amman the itinerary would take me from Santiago all the way down through Patagonia and then all the way back up to Buenos Aires hiking camping and driving over the course of 30 gloriously diverse days it was the part of my adventure I was most looking forward to volcanoes continually amazed me they're a constant reminder of how alive our earth is so when we arrived in pucon and were given the opportunity to climb the Jataka volcano one of the most active volcanoes in chile had jumped at the opportunity it took approximately four hours to summit an asphyxiation by toxic gases never felt so great but it was the 1200 meter slide down that stole the show I've never spent Christmas away from home and a six-hour journey from pucon to bariloche eating crisps and the cheese sandwich was never something I envisioned bariloche is basically the front cover of a chocolate box it's Alpine style architecture feels like a European town we spent the following days after Christmas ziplining cycling and drinking beer among stunning views snow-capped peaks and sunshine but before long we were back on the bus one thing people don't tell you about Patagonia is how incredibly windy it is setting up our bush camp for the evening seemed like an impossible task but a great team is born from an intense struggle and before night had fallen we had shelter and not a single one of us blew away in the night the wind wasn't our only obstacle so was the terrain and after two days of intense challenges a kind mini campsite owner named ray all took us in and we had one hell of a party everyone is cooking breakfast right now and there is dead sheep carcass they're truly roughing it oh man we arrived in los policías National Park well rested and in high spirits ready to take on the 24 kilometer round hike to Fitzroy the mountain famously featured on the Patagonia clothing label it remains my favorite day hike for a multitude of different reasons all of which were then completely trumped by a guy flinging off his shorts proving that shrinkage was not exclusively a problem faced by ice caps after a brief boat trip to beat Malaysia it was time to hit the road again heading even further south along the way we passed shipwrecks camped next to our Packer who looked a lot warmer than we were cross to boarders and caught a scenic ferry pass schools of dolphin before finally arriving in ushuaia the most southern city in the world first on our agenda was a height and a kayaking trip from tierra del fuego national park a park rich with wildlife vegetation and beaches all surrounded by rugged mountain currently hiking through tierra del fuoco National Park which is the most southern National Park in the world goosh wire felt like a place I already knew I think that was mostly due to the fact that it reminds me of a city you'd find in a one-off TV crime series about a missing person it's gloominess definitely lived up to its nickname as the city at the end of the world the gloominess followed and followed as we made our way north once again where we would soon begin the W Trek a four day hike in the pouring rain seemed like a pretty bleak prospect but then as soon as we cross the border into Chile as if right on cue the Sun came out you

Top 5 Budget Backpacking Gear Items | Lightweight Backpacking Gear



Views:11427|Rating:4.27|View Time:12:4Minutes|Likes:194|Dislikes:33
hey what's going on guys Devin here was backcountry exposure today we're gonna talk about my top 5 yes my top 5 with a 6th honorable mention budget backpacking gear items now something that has been discussed on my channel before through comments and messages is why don't you ever do budget backpacking gear items part of the reason that I don't do very inexpensive gear items is because I choose to purchase gear specifically that I feel is going to last a long time and I feel like with backpacking gear you definitely get what you pay for that is a philosophy that I live by in something over my many many years of backpacking and outdoor experience the money and good money that you spend on a piece of outdoor gear typically lends itself to something that is going to last a really long time and so I'm somebody that really likes to invest in a high quality gear and so I do spend good money on products however there are a lot of things that I carry that I would consider budget items and we're going to talk about these budget items specifically in the sense of ways that you can save weight things that are really beneficial to kind of change up your backpacking system and so let's go ahead and just dive into number one and these are in no particular order of importance or ranking but number one of a awesome awesome budget backpacking item is a backpack itself this happens to be the Osprey EXO's 38 the Osprey series is what I'm going to refer to as a awesome budget backpacking backpack because you've got something that is fairly low cost in the regards to lots of other options that are available out there on the market I mean you get on Amazon you can find packs for like 60 bucks even $30 but you have to ask yourself is it going to last a long time is it comfortable and is it going to suit the the needs for me in this case am going to save weight by purchasing a $60 pack off of Amazon or off of some other website like backcountry so the exo series is a fantastic low-cost budget-friendly backpack that saves a ton of weight this is a really really awesome lightweight backpack I don't particularly carry this all the time anymore because I am using a different frameless pack but if you are looking to get into backpacking and you want to start with something lightweight then the EXO's 48 or the EXO's 58 is going to be an awesome pack once you get to the point that you are carrying lighter loads in the summer then going with a 38 litre like this is going to be a really good option this has been one of the best purchases that I've ever made and again at a low cost really really happy with it and it's worth the investment because Osprey makes amazing products that are made super well and you're just over two pounds with this particular pack so that's number one on the list number two is going to be a pot and specifically a titanium pot this is the toks 700 milliliter pot I've got other tokes products but the reason that I like the 700 and this on Amazon was like $35 and if you've got Prime then it ships free and in regards to titanium the price that you pay for the toks products definitely fits within the budget category but the 700 milliliter is a perfect size in that you can put some kind of like small cup on the inside I can get a really tiny stove in here so if you're looking for a budget stove the BRS stove on Amazon sorry to keep like directly linking to Amazon but that's where you can get a lot of budget-friendly backpacking items but in this pot I can put a 100 gram butane canister and that BRS stove inside of the pot close this off stick it in the bag and you are super lightweight with this ounces way better than a aluminum pot and it doesn't cost that much more than an aluminum pot but you have to make the decision on whether or not the heat transfer and such that you get in the durability that you get from titanium is worth the weight savings and a lot of times for new backpackers going with something like this isn't the best option because you're a little bit harder on your gear and that kind of thing but this is a really really good route to go so the toks 700 milliliter pot next on the list is the Cascade wild and this is why I have six items in the list because this is kind of a unique piece compared to everything else that I have here as good budget backpacking items but this I'm including because I literally take it every single time I go out on a trip but this table more or less for ten dollars allows me to keep things out of the dirt out of the sand my eating utensils and whatnot to keep things clean and at just over two ounces it's an awesome awesome product so cascade wild and the gentleman that owns this company his name is Jim fantastic person I have had several several email conversations with him and could not say enough good things about a simple product like this it is not something that everybody would really think about but this is a great great budget item that adds some luxury without a excessive amount of weight to your backpacking system next item that we'll talk about is this big thing that you see down here in the screen this is the hammock gear econ burrow this is the 40 degree and the reason that I'm including this is I am 100% sold on the comfort of quilt camping versus using a traditional sleeping bag this quilt comes in just over 120 dollars or so depending on what temperature rating you get the 40 degree and 50 degree options being the lowest cost but if you want to get into a down super lightweight inexpensive bag that supports a cottage company made here in the United States then hammock here is a really really good way to go and it's not that expensive like I paid I think 134 dollars I was shipping for this and if you consider what you're getting with it the comfort the fact that it's made in America made by people by hand it's just a fantastic product and so supporting your cottage companies is really really important to me and so comparative to other quilts that are available on the market there are definitely lower cost options cheaper things but a quilt is easily one of the better products that I think you can transition to in your backpacking system and you'll benefit from it because you save quite a bit of weight by going to a quilt and it's very versatile so ground-dwelling in a tent with a proper r-value pad is going to be really nice with this as well as using it in a hammock so if you've got a tent that you're using as well as a hammock system then you're gonna benefit from having a quilt and so this definitely fits within that budget criteria for me because under $200 for something like this is a really really good cost moving on to the next item that we're going to talk about water filtration and budget options for water filtration in my left hand here I've got the aqua mera chlorine dioxide it drops I freaking love love these things they're super lightweight and for about $15 you've got water filtration that doesn't necessarily go bad for a really long time and it's really really simple to use and definitely recommend checking out the aqua mera but on the other side of the water filtration is going to be some kind of hollow fiber filter whether it's this hydro blue versa flow or it's a sawyer mini these are really low cost and they are super effective they are super lightweight there is a theme here of all of these items saving weight but not breaking the bank and so for about $20 you've got a water filter that's gonna last a really long time it's gonna keep you safe to filter out all of the gross things in water that you don't want to drink the downside to the aqua mirror is sometimes you are going to get floaties depending on what your water situation is like so the holida fiber filters like this Hydra blue versa flow which I really like this because it does have slightly better flow rates than the sawyer mini but either one of those are going to be about $20 $25 and super super good options for high-quality reliable water filtration now the last item that we'll talk about in the honorable mention i don't have this set up we're just going to show this to you and I'm going to show pictures of it set up in my experience with it but this is a awesome budget fairly lightweight two-man tent this is the Perea Outdoor Products Zion two-person tent this thing super cool in my time using it so far it's been one of the better tent products that I've actually used and for all of the the features that are included with it what's inside of it the amount of space and how well it's made all of that yes it is a chinese-made product it is not a unique design there are other brands that have this exact same design hike and bike for example has a tent that is literally identical to this the MSR series of tents have a very very similar design that is but the benefit is you've got a brand and a company that stands behind their products and they're going to take care of the product if it fails for any reason so that's something that I really like about Perea is they're putting out high quality products that are low cost and if you are looking for a two-person tent then the Zion two-person tent is a really really good option right at about 5 pounds for the entire package you can lighten it quite a bit to get right under about 3 excuse me 4 pounds and so there are options to be able to split this up between two people carry about two pounds each and have a really high-quality low-cost budget two person tent check out links down in the description for the various websites of where you can find out more information and even purchase these what would be your top five budget backpacking items comparative to this list obviously there are a lot of things that you can look at and consider as part of a budget backpacking system this is just a very small thing to look at these are five items that I absolutely love and are definitely within that budget category so with that guys thank you so much for watching please subscribe to the channel if you haven't as always have an awesome day catch you on the next one you

Planning Your First Overnight Backpacking Trip



Views:71327|Rating:4.93|View Time:22:35Minutes|Likes:2147|Dislikes:29
hey y'all Dixon here today I want to talk to you about crossing the line from day hiking to overnight backpacking I recently polled people here on YouTube on the community tab of my channel and asked folks what was their current level of backpacking experience and most folks said day hiking you know there were some folks that had overnight backpacking experience even some through hikers you know and some people with no experience whatsoever but most of the folks that responded to the pole we're day hikers based on some of the comments and you know other questions I've seen on the channel it indicates that a lot of these day hikers would like to go on an overnight trip but there seems to be you know something holding them back for the most part I think most of these folks are hesitant to go on an overnight backpacking trip even if it's just one night because of you know some fear of the unknown and this could be going alone not being sure where to go where you can camp maybe the gear budget time just because of a bunch of other naysayers worried about injuries maybe whether you know all sorts of different reasons that folks might be hesitant to actually go out into the wilderness and stay over a night so I'd like to go ahead and cover this topic today and you know delve into some of these points and maybe transition some of these day hikers that would like to become you know backpackers and kind of help them make that leap and if you're like Dixie I'm a day hiker I don't ever want to go spend a night out in the woods that's alright you still might find something useful in this video so just hang out and see what you think when you're learning something new I think the best way to do it is to research right so obviously if you're here and you're watching this video you're off to a good start because you're on a backpacking Channel not just because you're on my channel but you've you know decided hey I want to learn more about this backpacking thing and you're watching videos on YouTube about backpacking and most of you are probably you know getting out on day hikes so I would definitely recommend continuing that and familiarizing yourself well you know with some of the trails local to you now while you're doing that you can be researching and reading and the biggest thing with backpacking is like the gear right you need to find a way to have shelter to have water to have food and take care of you know those most basic needs and some of you are probably like oh my god here I don't even know how research is not what do I need like what what actually do I research I don't even know where to begin well if you just Google you know backpacking gear lists you'll probably come up with more than you could ever care to read on my website at homemade wanderlust com I've got a gear tab you know has my gear list but you know maybe if you're just going on a local trail you want to check out some backpacking gear lists for you know your areas so you need to think you know if I'm looking at a gear list for the Appalachian Trail is the weather where I'm at similar to you know part of that blazing trail so of course you're gonna have to tweak some of these things to your preferences in your area but just looking at gearless of people who are already backpacking is a good idea there's a homemade wanderlust backpacking forum a lot of people in there have experience with overnight backpacking and even through hikes you know so you can always post a question there it's just homemade one or less backpacking forum group on Facebook alright so for example you might look at this list and go okay well regardless of where I am I need to drink water right so how can I make sure that water is safe to drink well this person used you know water treatment a chemical or maybe another person used a filter so you can look up water treatment while backpacking and just see you know what pulls up on Google and read all about it and don't overwhelm yourself with this take maybe five minutes a day for one week to learn about water treatment while on a backpacking trip so for the next week you'll you know take five minutes out of the day and learn about some other form of gear maybe a stove if you want to cook on trail but you don't even have to worry about that yet because if you're going for one overnight trip you can really just you know pack Twinkies if you want to do then maybe you look into sleeping bags and then so on and so forth so you're learning about new gear all along the way you know each week and then maybe once a month getting out on a day hike twice a month I mean if once a week that's even better right so you'll be familiarizing yourself with the outdoors in your area and as often as you can so maybe you know once a month if your budget allows for that it's gonna depend on the person but you purchase one of these pieces of gear or you can borrow it from a friend you know maybe borrow different things from different friends to see what you like before you make a purchase you can get it used you know I mean whatever you do if you can rent it just somehow acquire this piece of gear and take it with you on a day hike so get a water filter and take it out there with you during your day hike and you know play around with it I mean sure on a day hike you can take your own bottled water but you want to familiarize yourself with this piece of gear that later you know you would need to have with you so you're gonna filter your water and that way you get to focus on one thing instead of finding yourself on the trail with a pack full of things that you don't exactly know how to use you know and you're just like oh my gosh this is so overwhelming this way you take these things out with you on a day hike and you focus on this one thing and then you add something else and then you add something else you know when you add your sleeping bag you can take a nap in it you know and this might be like a short trail just a couple mile trail but just take it nice and easy and again just introduce one thing at a time and this way you're not having to buy like all these big expensive pieces of gear before you you know really take the time to research and if you're getting out there on trails you might run into other people and you can say like hey what do you like about that pack you're carrying you know or what do you what do you use for water filtration and these might be people who are getting out there and backpacking and doing day high you can even use you know your kids old spongebob squarepants backpack it doesn't matter because at the beginning you're not gonna be carrying a whole lot of stuff with you know just some snacks and just this one new piece of gear that you introduce occasionally basically you will continue this process until you've got all the items that you think you're gonna need for one night so you don't even have to go crazy and say I'm gonna do a thru-hike right away where I'm gonna go on a week-long backpacking trip you know just prepare yourself for literally staying somewhere one night and you don't even have to hike in very far just a couple of miles set up camps stay one night and come back out and while you're researching you're gonna hear people say things like oh your base weight should be above you know XYZ pounds and you should be carrying two pounds of food with you per day and like all of these numbers but the thing is like just take what you think you'll need for one night and I guarantee you if it's not right you're gonna start making adjustments and you're gonna know what works for you by just getting out there and having the experience one of the first concerns you might have is where so maybe you're even frozen in like I don't even know how to start day hiking well you can Google you know trails near your town and some of y'all that live in more populated areas yes you might have to drive a little bit further than those of us who live more in rural areas but somewhere within a reasonable vicinity I'm sure there is a place to you know get out on some hiking trails and in areas that you can keep you can also check out the all trails app that they have for phones I think you can find it online too but it'll give information for trails that are local to you or you know mirrors to you and a lot of those give specific information like whether you can camp there or not you know if it's just for day hiking only don't let that be something that concerns you too much but again you know find out the rules for the area that you're gonna be in most of the time at the trailhead there's gonna be you know signs up telling you specific guidelines and once you start day hiking a lot in area you're gonna get familiar with the rules there anyway something else that holds people back is their budget so this makes sense you know not everyone can afford to go out tomorrow and buy a whole new set of brand new backpacking gear and hit the trail for an overnight trip the next day and I understand that but if you use the model that I was talking about you know get one little piece at a time and practice with that piece of gear familiarize yourself with it you know it does break up the expenses while allowing you to still get out and enjoy nature and some saving tips you know you can look at like the used backpacking groups that are on Facebook they're folks all the time peddling their used gear on their because they want to upgrade to something new REI does do like garage sales and if you do purchase something through Aria at least if you decide you know that it does not work for you they have an amazing return policy you have up to a year to return an item and it doesn't have to be you know broken damage whatever it can simply be just like this piece of gear does not work for me now I don't recommend taking advantage of that of course so you know if you get 500 miles out of a pair of trail runners I don't think that it's right to you know go return them and abuse that policy but just saying you know it's like a safe buy with REI at least you can also try to borrow from a friend or some of this gear you can potentially rent from some outdoor stores and then as always you know Christmas which of course just passed or birthdays anniversary gifts you know you can always tell people like hey I'm interested in backpacking now and I'm looking to get a new water filter you know instead of a new vacuum cleaner I really like a new sleeping pad or you know whatever but there certainly are ways to save money and you don't always have to buy you know the greatest newest piece of equipment another concern is being alone so a lot of folks don't like the idea of going out for their first overnight trip and being there alone you know it's just like misery loves company right but honestly you know being alone can be pretty rewarding I feel like if you go out and you do something like that alone it's gonna boost your confidence a lot you know you're gonna believe in yourself more and you'll probably be pretty proud of yourself but if you're absolutely against the idea of going out there alone you can check in to meetup.com and see if there any local hiking or adventure outdoor clubs near you also you could check Facebook for your local vicinity and see if there are any groups like that on Facebook and you can always try to beg a friend and to you know getting out there with you but don't let that stop you you know if you can just don't let that be the thing that holds you back because chances are you might find that you prefer to be alone while out in the wilderness also if you go through the exercise that I mentioned earlier you know you're gonna be familiar with these trails that you're getting out on four day hikes you're gonna be familiar with the gear in your pack so all of these things are going to be normal to you and you might even if you go out for day hikes alone you might get you said you know just being out in the woods alone and the only thing that's gonna change is that short little period of time where you're asleep at night you know but the sun's gonna come up the next morning so just get out there and and try to make yourself go for it and also if you're going out on these day hikes you're gonna know if you have service on a certain trail or not and maybe for your first overnight stint and be a good idea to camp somewhere that you have service and that way you know you can text people if you need to or whatever you know if you're scared you can call somebody and talk to them but I think once you get in that first overnight you're gonna feel a lot better about it the next topic I want to cover is you know comfort or maybe lack of so discomfort yeah a lot of people will tell you that their first backpacking experience was not necessarily comfortable and I don't know I mean there might be somebody out there that's like heck yeah my backpacking setup is just as comfortable is my bed at home I don't have that I haven't had that experience I have found ways to make my experience more comfortable but I think a lot of people will tell you you know backpacking isn't necessarily about comfort I mean yes it's whatever you want to make it but a lot of times it's just about the experience itself and not so much about like you know oh my gosh that I feel like I was on a memory foam mattress and I think that after a while once you get outside and really start enjoying nature you know once you do get home and get to that big comfortable bed and everything you might appreciate it more you know you might look at the things that you take for granted in life and start to realize you know how great they are and you might end up really enjoying your tent and sleeping pad more and start looking at your bedroom like a cage instead of a place to have comfort and lay your head to sleep at night next is time so folks are like you know I just don't have the time for it well yeah I mean backpacking can take time and you know if it's not something that's important to you right now then you're not gonna make the time for it and that's okay you know maybe it's that you can't go because you don't want to take your kids Oh too young or they're not interested in that or for whatever reasons that you can't make the time to go right now that's fine but it's still something that you can learn about and plan for if you know an overnight trip is something that is of interest to you and that you would like to do in the future like anything else if you just like playing you know so in two weeks on Friday night I'm going for my one over night thing and that's it you know does it really take a whole lot more time than you know single day hikes if you're able to get out and do your day headaches just it's basically two day hike split together next I know a lot of people worry about wildlife the truth is and you'll hear people say over and over and over again that you know wildlife are more afraid of you than you are them of course there are exceptions to every rule and yes people have been charged by bears and mauled by bears and all of that but people are also in car accidents and I bet you can remember seeing a car accident in the last month but you're still gonna get behind your wheel and drive aren't you there are plane crashes and people still travel from state stay in an airplane you know so just because something happens doesn't mean that it's going to happen to you I mean yes it could but you take risks every day that once you're familiar with those risks you just don't even really second-guess anymore I'm not saying that it's not a good idea to research wildlife and you know find out ways to mitigate your interactions with them and it depends to on you know what animals are in your area do you have bears you know then Google or YouTube you know how to hang a bear bag and you know if it makes you feel better to carry bear spray then you can do that you know I'm not saying like take it too lightly I'm just saying don't let wildlife be what holds you back from getting out on the trail because chances are based on statistics you're not really gonna have a problem with that and then there's weather so I can see how you know on a weekend or week-long trip or something like that weather could be more of a concern if you're just going for your first like one night overnight trip then weather shouldn't really be that big of a concern check ahead of time you know look and see what the weather is predicted to do I would set yourself up for you know the first night to have some good weather you do decide to go for more than just a single night and you want to go for like a weekend or a week-long trip then get out there in your backyard or you know again another one night trip somewhere when you know it's gonna rain and you're already familiar with all of your stuff you've already done you know a couple of these overnight stints and you decide like hey I want to make sure that if it does rain my tents not gonna leak if I'm hiking in the rain my pack isn't getting all the stuff wet on the inside you know so check that out and your backyard or again go on you know one overnight deal where you know it is gonna rain and you're already expecting it and that way you'll be prepared like when it happens you'll be like yeah I've already done this before it's no big deal but sure you know the weather can change it can be unpredictable especially if you're up in the mountains so even for your first like one night deal you know make sure that you have a tent that you think isn't gonna leak and you know make sure that you're just prepared for the idea like if it rains what am I gonna do next is injuries so folks are worried about getting hurt right I mean nobody wants to be hurt and be out in the middle of nowhere and especially you know if you're alone what you can do to remedy this is I mentioned before you know tried to camp somewhere for the first time when you're by yourself where you know you'll have cell signal if that's not a possibility they do make you know spot GPS devices and then also like the GPS locator beacons that don't necessarily allow you to communicate with people back home but do allow you to push a button if you do need help then there's also the inReach which you know allows you to text through satellite but it's gonna be more expensive and really if you're just going for your first one night trip and you're only hiking a couple miles and you're probably not gonna need all of that you know if you broke your ankle as terrible as it sounds you can find a way to drag yourself out if you had to and again if you have service and you know you can call somebody for help and then also you know tell your family like hey I'm going out today at 8 a.m. I'm gonna hike for miles in I'm gonna camp I'm planning on waking up at such-and-such time tomorrow if I'm not home by noon be worried and come looking for me you know so make sure you communicate with folks and let them know what your plans are and it's gonna be okay and then finally it's the naysayers the naysayers will always hold people back the naysayers are the ones that make you believe that you are going to be bitten by a snake you're gonna be mauled by a bear you're probably gonna die just because you hike in two miles on a trail sleep and wake up and hike out the next day if it was up to the naysayers nobody in the world would ever do anything we would never travel we wouldn't get in the car we'd probably be hiding in our houses still because we were afraid to get outside and breathe the air outside our front door but don't let the naysayers hold you back you know if you've got folks at work they're like you're crazy you want to go sleep somewhere and lay your head where the cockroaches and the mice you know scurry around tell me yeah I do you know I really do want to go out and enjoy that and I guarantee you when you get back to work on Monday and you tell them about your one overnight trip that you spent they're gonna be amazed or you know what tell me more oh my gosh you're that brave you know and that's the whole thing is that you know people who are afraid to cross the line and try something new have decided that they don't want you to do it either and it's not always because they don't want you to enjoy life but because they're afraid for you but other people's fears are not your fears unless you make them your fears so do not let the naysayers hold you back let them inspire you and let them make you reach out and try new things even more just to show them that you can and it's okay and you might even inspire one of those naysayers and turn them into you know not a naysayer so I've talked about you know a lot of the concerns that people have with getting out and spending one night out in the wilderness but what I really want to focus on and what other people would focus on are the benefits of getting out there and doing even a day hike you know but especially like an overnight trip you're gonna build your confidence you're gonna believe in yourself more you are going to appreciate things around you a lot more than you did before simple you know luxuries that we take for granted all the time you might overcome struggle and learn you know well if I can do this I can do anything you might learn how to improvise sometimes you might improve your creativity you might just you know enjoy some peace you might find some talent that you hadn't had before like photography you know who knows you might start wanting to learn more about birds or trees or plants medicinal herbs you know that grow naturally around you it could just open up a whole new world to you that starts off with taking a simple stroll in the woods and sleeping there for a night and getting back in touch with your roots and where we come from because this world we live in today is a synthetic world it's this false security that we've built up around ourselves and we're so out of touch with things that we came from like nature I will say though that while you're out on your first overnight trip you might go Dixie's crazy what is she talking about this is terrible and there are noises outside my tent you know it rained on me or I stub my toe or whatever and you might be cursing me but I guarantee you a lot of the benefits are retrospective and when you come back and you're in your house and you're thinking about I did that like you know six months ago I was terrified to step out and do this but I did it you might not even recognize that change in yourself but it's gonna be there let me ask you a question when you were five and it was time to start school were you a little nervous about starting school or when you found out you know after kindergarten and you were all used to those kids and your teacher you had to go to a new grade with a new teacher didn't that stress you out I'm sure a lot of you see that in your children now and you know when you first learn to ride a bike or to drive a car you know you've had that like nervousness about you I mean everyone gets nervous about different things right but there's something that has made people nervous at some point in their life and mainly because it was a new concept I mean even as adults like starting a new job you know at a new place of employment it's kind of stressful or any new people there you don't know how your boss is gonna be and then after you've been employed there for 10 years you can look back on that day and laugh at yourself like what was that so worried about but going on an overnight backpacking trip and transitioning from a day hike to that overnight trip is the same thing it's just that you know you haven't done it yet so it sounds scary but if you use that model that I talked about where you take five minutes out of a week you know each day to learn about some piece of gear you're gonna familiarize yourself with that then once you take it out there you start using it you're gonna feel very comfortable with it so literally just staying overnight in one spot that you're already familiar with you know because you've been out there day hiking on that trail it's really gonna be a very gradual transition and some of you are like I love our Dixie I don't need to do all that you know I'll just go from a day hike to a week trip or you know well Dixie you went from day hiking to thru-hike well yes I mean not everyone gets nervous about the same things right so but I mean I was pretty nervous when I started that they're like not gonna lie but I save this topic for the end of the year because we've got 2018 coming right at us and you know did you really learn something new this year like did you make the time to learn a new concept or a new trade or skill or whatever you know well why not make it whether you want to call it a new year's resolution they're not you know make it a priority next year to learn something new and whether that's backpacking and hiking business or finances or cryptocurrency or herbalism or whatever you think that you would be interested in learning about I challenge you to take five minutes each day you know a new topic each week you know maybe it's all under the umbrella of the same thing but just a new little sliver of that topic and think about in 52 weeks how knowledgeable you can be on that one subject and if you did that each year and had something else or two things you know each year just think about how much you can learn you just have to be disciplined you know make yourself sit down and do it but that's why I'm calling it out and bringing it to your attention you know do something next year to better yourself and you know really focus in on that and I'm gonna stop preaching now but anyway I just want now my thing for next year is herbalism I want to learn more about medicinal herbs and you know how to cook with those foods and how to make tinctures and Sev's and all that so that's something that I'm learning so I'm not just telling you all to do something you know I'm actually practicing what I preach before I go though if any of y'all you know we're in that boat where you were nervous about you know taking your day hikes and turning them into you know a single overnight backpacking trip and you had concerns I would love for you to share those concerns below and you know what you did to remedy that or you know what you think about that now looking back and maybe that will be helpful to people who have the same concerns that are watching this video and that way they can scroll through the comments and salic see somebody else did it I can do it and with that happy new year and we will see y'all next year

okay well good morning and Danny okay so story time we left later than we should have last night and so we didn't make it to the trailhead and so he just pulled over here and I was like kick I know we'll just tent kit and so we can't fit look how I mean we had to set up the tent in the dark and stuff but it was actually a really beautiful spot to camp here at pole Creek and it was cold and I don't think any of us slept very good and then Danny is like well instead of me setting up the tent to sleep in the back so anyways we're just gonna do some coffee eat some breakfast and then drive it's another like 9 miles and get started on the hike okay good morning so in today's vlog I'm taking two of my friends Jaime and Danny who have never been backpacking before and we're going on an off-grid backpacking trip so think about 30 miles probably total we got a late start so he ended up his car camping last night and here's Danny filtering our water and we are gonna get started oh I mean so my sites might be off a little excitement shot this girl this year so it could be off well you hit the back and hit the back take that and then you're just going to walk it in right there the whitetip out and underneath everything go set it on the breasts and then you don't want to really like hold this you just want to try and pull it cuz every time I kept trying to study if I think it would bump off so then what you do is you take person this is a kind of tricky part and then you clasp it on the purple thing and then you close it and it's locked down and then what you do is you hold on to we're surprised when I do so much solo backpacking but for me I have so much noise in my day-to-day life but whenever I get a chance I'd love to get up into the mountains I feel like it just like resets my soul and being alone with nature I think it's one of the best ways to just be grateful for the state that we live in the country that we get to explore and if you look at this restaurant there's no way I can do this without my forte no I I'll never get rid of it because I have space in the back that I can when I'm at home and confer my kids car seats back there and then when I want to get into the mountains quickly I can throw everything in a bed and I know that a couple games wherever I wanna go like there's no way that you could make this in a car in a way I could even do this in my home ground for this is what this is the road you need afford to cut for sure with world wreck okay so I don't know if I ever told you guys the story but the very first time I ever came to the saltiest I had never ever been to the Sawtooths before in my life and I was dating this guy and he was kind of a jerk like we were supposed to hang out that weekend and then he's like oh like a friend coming into town I don't think he should come up okay Wow we need to stop and take a picture Wow okay my cable voice isn't sick is to be continued let's get out oh my god okay look what we stumbled upon super old cabin as we're driving up could you imagine living here like wow this is amazing want to go in I don't see the door do you guys others it looks some people still use this there's a power cord over here oh it's locked up yeah I think people still use it because there's a power cord coming out of this there's a table there oh my gosh yeah this is definitely like a hunting camp I bet oh yeah people probably sleep on these these are probably the bunk beds wow that's so cool maybe this would be a fun hunting camp Natalie you were telling us about your home birth experience like talk about the setting and where we're at and well it's like so interesting being at an old log cabin like this because I just kept thinking what would have been like 100 years ago when we did it like if we would have lived up here and you didn't have doctors or you didn't have like what would that have been like and I wonder if it would have been somewhat similar to even my birthing experience so both my babies were born just in a home environment with Midwife ed wives and I you know it's interesting people are always like oh my gosh you had you didn't have drugs you had 10-pound babies like you didn't have a doctor what but I had a really I was a low-risk pregnancy and my mom the last couple babies I actually watched her give birth and so I just I don't know I grew up without fearing the birth process it's so different than what you see on TV it's not like the high drama they're like oh my gosh the baby's coming it's not like that at least it wasn't for me describe that moment when you when they had you bear down in that moment where after you'd worked so hard oh my gosh so um oh man it was amazing so I think one having all the women in the room like it was almost like a I was like a ceremony I know that sounds like a strange word to say but I just there was so much strong female energy and I just knew that all the women in there believed that I could do it and it's like the moment that's what I say like I would have 10 babies just to have 10 of these moments like labor so hard and then the moment that baby is like comes out of you it's unlike any drug or high or rush or anything that I've ever experienced like it's just like such a rush of oxytocin and endorphins that like I just oh it's the best feeling you feel in love with everybody in the room and like you forget about the pain and you just pull that little baby up onto your chest and like with Phoenix it was so crazy like she was down here and she was like like two minutes old and she we have a video of it she scooted up and like was trying to latch on she just instinctually knew how to do that you know and what would you tell women who are thinking about doing a Homburg well I would say that do your research make sure that you're healthy going into it because they're I don't like if you have complications you definitely should be in the hospital but home births are really safe if you have a good team of people around you hmm and just trust that like your body is capable of doing it and remind yourself that you are a strong powerful woman and that our bodies as women have been designed to do this for centuries and centuries and centuries and like draw on the power of all the other women who have gone through that experience and use that during your labor experience ok people ask me if I want more babies and part of me is like so easy to be done with that phase but part of me gosh that moment like right when the baby is born he's like well I missed that I miss that I want that again and like I didn't mind pregnancy so much but like right when the baby's born you get to put that baby on your chest it's like it's like nothing I've ever experienced before amazing like the best feeling in the whole world okay so what we thought was gonna take us 30 minutes to get to the trailhead took us almost three hours would explain what happened yeah well we only repack it was so close we just drove right by yeah so we just drove right by the tree line and I saw it there but in my head the way that the trail got anyways doesn't matter but we drove a long ways in the wrong direction but it we got some beautiful photos out of it so I'm at a treacherous Hill and Jamie saved us by backing us out oh gosh yeah we should have filmed that so we started going up this really steep hill I got anxiety and I was like I can't drive my pickup so Jamie's like I'll do it Natalie so she hopped in reversed my pickup got us out of the treacherous area and then we drove back to have an actual childhood well we stopped and we looked at the Mount for like 20 minutes trying to figure out where we were and now it's 12 so the only downside is now we have to hike in the heat but oh well that's part of the adventure hike in the wilderness here in the Sawtooths we register and so that's way two reasons one if you get lost they know where to connect where you started and two it helps them just know like we hikers are using the trails to keep up with wear and tear okay you guys excited okay today was quite the adventure yeah I know we already drove like five miles in the wrong directions so I drove five miles back um broke a bow and arrow um what else crazy I think that's about it but almost lost the dog okay all right I gotta focus on hiking so try to step just on the rocks if you can or see if maybe crossing over there might be easier because you don't want to get your shoes wet okay so just try to like hop from rock to rock if you can so you get your shoes as minimally wet as possible so I would actually go to that one and then to this one and then leap down Tralee come here good job you did it cuz if you get your shoes wet you're screwed you're gonna get blisters like nobody's business okay here we go so I'm crossing this that one's kind of this one's kind of soft yeah just don't don't step as much on this one this one's stronger let's see if Charlie goes I'll buy the dogs coming oh good there you go Oh Charlie Charlie fell good boy buddy there you go the farthest vlog to the right is also strong if that when does it feel good yeah yes stuff to filter some water how's the hike so far okay on a scale of one to ten what would you say yeah I would say even a seven for me it's been oh there was mile two was tough so somebody else was thinking of coming in backpacking like this is the thing I feel like I always have to tell people like you need to be in good shape and wouldn't you agree with that yeah uh-huh yep okay girlfriend show us what you're doing sweet so how it works is we get that little pump in the water and then we have a little water filter it just filters the water to get any bacteria oh wow there's a little waterfall back here it's cool okay well first off Danny called that nipple mountain and then we turned around look at the fires there's a helicopter look they're gonna drop yeah they're gonna probably see if I can get on they're gonna drop like fire it's like a special yeah I can too yeah we're doing great okay we just got to the top of this company Island divide where normally you see for miles but because of the fire set so smoky right now it gosh it's so beautiful and so we're not gonna hike into this like that you can see here we're gonna get to the next one at the camp okay this is like number one we decided not to camp here because it's beautiful but we I think the next one might be a little bit cooler yeah yeah well here forget a camping chair just make an impromptu you one this is so freaking cool looks like they just brought some rope and made a chair that's awesome okay we just got to yeah I just got to the camp there's somebody camping already here so we're gonna keep looking for there's a trail right here so we can just keep falling it Wow tonight video how you guys feeling that last part was nice because it was all downhill so we got a much better I see type peanut curry three sisters do and then suddenly I don't like as a lot of these don't have a lot of protein in them so I brought up an extra package of chicken you know we'll just add to the meal we're just boiling our water put it in you let it sit for like 15 to 20 minutes and then we're so smart that you brought another hat okay so we call these hydration drinks so a lot of times if I come back talking with friends we like to just bring a little bit of whiskey and then you just add a lot of water with a little bit always eleven and we call them hydration drinks and it's just the tradition mm-hmm that's super fun okay Jamie the mountain woman she's a herbalist we joke we say she's a witch sometimes because she's so smart with herbs she's also now a mountain woman we did so we didn't really have a seat that we could sit on we found this one log but we couldn't find the other so good job Jamie here do I help and it's like not just seven miles I feel like we need to say like seven hard freaking miles with 40 pounds on our back or maybe 50 that's like that's perfect looks like a throne
