Kalahari Resort PA Vacation Poconos Mountains

Here is our video footage of Kalahari Resorts in the Poconos Mountains, Pennsylvania. Kalahari is a resort with an indoor waterpark which makes it ideal for year round vacation fun! There’s lots to do.

We booked a 2 day stay which gives you a discount. The rates vary according to what time of year, what room and what day of the week you stay.

They have everything at the resort so you don’t have to leave. Restaurants are decently priced. A word to the wise…don’t eat at the buffet….it was expensive and horrible. I highly recommend the Ivory Coast Restaurant in the lobby area. The food was inexpensive and really delicious! Gift shops are available and they even had a small shop in the lobby area in case you need to purchase personal items or things you may have forgotten at home by accident or ran out of, kinda like an airport shop.

If I could do it again, I wish I could stay a little longer but 2 days was quite enough time to have fun. Park opens around 9am and stays open until around 10pm. Plenty of time to take breaks in between in your room etc.

There were a lot of things I didn’t get to cover in the video b/c I wanted to make it shorter but if you have any questions, please let me a comment down below 🙂

Backpacking Idahos Sawtooth Mountains: Alice/Toxaway/Hidden Lake/Cramer Divide

Views:10787|Rating:4.98|View Time:1:18:33Minutes|Likes:448|Dislikes:2
This is a video of a backpacking trip I did in Idaho’s Sawtooth Mountains in June of 2018. We hiked from Pettit Lake to Redfish Lake, and some of the highlights include Alice Lake, Toxaway Lake, Hidden Lake, Cramer Lakes, Alpine Lake, Cramer Divide, Sunnyside Pass, and Sand Mountain Pass. This was an early season hike, and we had a lot of obstacles, such as river crossings and snow everywhere. We did a lot of route finding.

Christmas Vacation Tennessee Smokey Mountains December 2018

We wanted the kids to experience snow before they got any older so what better place to do it than the Winter Wonderland of the Smoky’s!
We spent Christmas week exploring Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and all the beauty of the Tennessee Smokey Mountains. We chose “making memories” rather than “buying gifts” this year and it was well worth every minute.
We stayed at the Westgate Gatlinburg Resort which included the Indoor Water Park (the kids favorite)
Our Top Favorites:
Crokett’s breakfast camp
Dollywood Theme Park
Sugarland Moonshine Tasting
Wine Tastings all over town
Dozens of candy shops all over town
Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland Drive Thru Light Show
Apple Barn
Laurell Falls Trail

Highly Recommended things that were on our wish list but didn’t have time to do:
Dolly Parton’s dinner shows
Comedy Barn
Cades Cove
Peddler Steakhouse
Alamo Steakhouse
Pancake Pantry
Deer Farm Exotic Zoo and Horse Back Riding
Ober Gatlinburg Ski park and Snow tubing
Would’ve also liked to spend another day at Dollywood, there was so much we missed!
Plus All the hiking trails, there are dozens and dozens to chose from , some family friendly and some a little more challenging but all end with breathe taking views!

Smoky Mountains – One Night Backpacking And Hammocking

This is a re-edit of a trip I took in April of 2018. It is the much shorter, more YouTube friendly version. This is a one night lightweight backpacking trip we took to the Smoky Mountains and hiked the Gabes Mountain Trail a short 10 miles. It was my friend, Phil’s first time ever backpacking. He borrowed all the gear he was using from me.

Solo 3-day backpacking hike in Banff Rocky Mountains

Views:788356|Rating:4.73|View Time:24:48Minutes|Likes:6197|Dislikes:351
Solo 40 km backpack hike to Howse pass in Banff Park, Alberta. This is an abandoned fur trading route. I show tricks for making life easy in the wilderness. The trail was in such bad shape, with so much deadfall, that I had to abandon my attempt to reach the pass. Check out Brian Patton’s blog on this trail at: He’s one of the co-authors of my favorite hiking book “The Canadian Rockies Trail Guide”.

Best part of making these video (other than the hike) is matching music. For this video I used:

1:50 Instrumental version of Madonna’s “Amazing” found on YouTube.

7:20 Instrumental version of the Tragically Hip’s “Wheat King” found on YouTube. The Hip are an amazing Canadian band from Ontario.

15:10 Instrumental version of Collective Soul’s “Shine”. Done by Nick Scott. He’s on YouTube as Ambonick1 (

19:20 Instrumental version of U2’s “Bad”. Great song by an even greater band.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park Backpacking (TN)- October 2018

Views:8261|Rating:4.93|View Time:50:21Minutes|Likes:369|Dislikes:5
After what I thought was my season-ending trip to Glacier National Park in September, I decided to add a ‘bonus’ trip to Great Smoky Mountains National Park to finish out the 2018 backpacking season.

I did this trip with Tyler, who I met here on YouTube. Tyler arranged the much-appreciated ride up to Kintla Lake during my September 2018 Glacier trip. He was also originally going to hike in Glacier with me, but ended up cancelling due to the fires there – so as an alternative we made plans to do this October hike to GSMNP.

Tyler has his own YouTube channel (Hikergy 16) and he also published a video of our hike together. Check it out! Tyler’s YouTube channel is at:

This trip was in the western part of GSMNP, and the intent was to experience the many streams, creeks, and waterfalls in that area of the Park, as well as immerse ourselves in the unique ‘primordial’ forests you find in the backcountry of the Smokies.

Our hike started on the Middle Prong Trail, then onto the Lynn Camp Prong Trail to campsite 28 for our first night. On the 2nd day we unfortunately started ‘off-trail’ for a couple hours before finding our way back onto the Lynn Camp Prong Trail. We then connected with the Miry Ridge Trail which we followed to Jakes Creek Trail, then to the Meigs Mountain Trail which took us to camp #20 for our second night. On the 3rd day we continued on the Meigs Mountain Trail to the Meigs Creek Trail, and, after 18 stream crossings, arrived at ‘The Sinks’… and the car.

For those who have watched my other videos this one is done in the same style – a little under an hour in length, intended to bring the audience along for the ‘ride’, and with a still picture slide show with music at the end. If you just have a few minutes skip to the end and enjoy the pictures.

Equipment / Gear List:

Still Camera: Nikon D810 with Nikkor 20mm f1.8 lens
Video Cameras: Canon Vixia G40 with Rode Stereo Videomic Pro
Video Editing Software: Vegas Pro 15
HDR Software: Aurora HDR 2018
Video Stabilization Software: Mercalli SAL v4

Pack: ZPacks Arc Blast 52l
Shelter: ZPacks Hexamid Solo Plus
