    Nice to see you using the Forclaz t 100. I just ordered mine after seeing your review. My 42ltr berghaus just wouldn't fit much more than sleeping gear.I was amazed at how much you stuffed into that main compartment.

    "I have got to keep my feet dry" immediately starts stomping on ice LOL I love this guy

  • IthinkthereforeIam OrsoIthought

    No military experience here, a simple timber cruiser. The extra footwork for the path untrod footage is mind blowing!

    Only people who have actually been in this position feel the anxiety of this man shooting multiple takes of him climbing at night without a camp nearby. It’s distracting.

    Dude, you're like what, in your late 20s early 30s and you already have a daughter who is in the navy???? WowAnd what about all those cool multiple camera angles? Do you set up dozens of cameras before the hike and harvest them on the way back))) hahaThank you for your videos and for sharing your thoughts with us! We all appreciate it!

    CANNOT believe you have a daughter old enough to be in the military. You do not look your age, my friend. Knew where you where when you found the wild ponies! Been there a few times, myself. Stay warm, dry and safe.

    I don't know how you winter camp. My sorry behind wakes up thinking it's freezing at 60 degrees. Then I have to sleep in sweat pants and shirt.

    @32:30 Could you take the poncho liner with you wear it as maybe a cape to help fight the chill?

    @28:55 It's that you said that as I had a similar complaint about the sleeping bag and mummy bag liners I have - except for wanting zippers. LOL

    11:17 Now, this is fairly impressive. You either went ahead and planted the camera then backtracked or stopped, planted the camera, went ahead, then hiked back to the camera WITHOUT LEAVING ORIGINAL TRACKS IN THE SNOW. The little things...

    I'm about to do a similar trip into the Swedish forest and want to document it. What kind of camera equipment do you use? I find it hard to find the correct one for capture that can withstand cold, snow and minor rain.

    You need to build a really nice cabin on lone wolf mountain.

    likely true on the breathing into pad... as a physics guy myself :) ... breathing into the pad will introduce water as you say.. this water has a high specific heat capacity (takes a lot of energy to raise its temp or lower it means it has to lose a lot of energy).. so what'll happen is the water will reach ambient temp (-3c?) ... then also freeze (latent heat to change the waters state from water to ice) ... when your body is in contact it will extract that heat via conduction through the temp differential between your body and pad.. firstly to change the state back to water (latent heat)... and then to raise that water to the same temp as your body.. quite a bit of heat loss.

    I'd be inclined to find a way of freeze drying my own meals after seeing the price of those "stowaway gourmet" pouches. They're unbelievably expensive.

    Just goes to show - do you really need a 4 season tent if your sleeping bag and bed are good enough?

    That intro music gave me the impression that you were gonna throw a ring into a volcano and fight a dragon.

    Agree, Gortex gaiters, last time I got blisters, was because feet sweating because cheap gaiters not allowing boots to vent properly.
