I put together a short video of a recent camping/backpacking trip we did down at Devil's Den State Park in Arkansas. Enjoy!
Below is a list outdoorsy things to do in no particular order. Suggestions welcome in the comments below.
Julie and I recently went on a short vacation up north to Wisconsin. We spent a night near Madison, two near Bayfield, and our last night was in Milwaukee. The trip really left me with a desire to try a multi-night island hopping trip back up to the Apostle Island National Park in order to get a closer view of some of these beautiful islands.
I am going to put of some pictures from my trip to Colorado that we took at the end of June into early July. Hopefully this will get me to write up some more details on what and where we actually did.
A teaser gallery will appear after the jump.
In preparing for my trip to Colorado later this year, I decided to make use of the tools at www.lighterpack.com in order to examine the current state of my backpacking gear. This particular "Warm Pack" is assuming a solo adventure. The main difference between this pack and a non-solo pack would be the use of a tent that could occupy my wife as well rather than the hammock setup.
Due to the fairly high weight of my hammock setup at the moment the difference between my tent and hammock system are fairly negligible. I plan on taking some time in the next month to review some specific items from this list - some that I love and some that I hate and want to replace.
