  1. I watched a lot of your videos, and very inspired to hike Utah. I'm very new at backpacking and looking to plan a 4 to 5 day loop. any suggestions were to get information of trails?

  2. I haven't seen your videos – I like LONG form YT vids like yours – what's a favorite of yours for a new viewer? Capture and great storms in your vids?

  3. You have inspired me to one day hike across Utah. I have done thru-hikes before including an extended version of the JMT similar to your own, but this project will undoubtedly require extensive planning and the learning of new skills such as navigating canyon country and cacheing resupplies. It would be outstanding if you would make your beta available (for purchase even). I look forward to watching your new adventures in the meantime. Lastly, it would be great to see you go on a backpacking adventures with kindred spirits such as Joey Coconato (MyOwnFrontier on YouTube) — You should definitely reach out to him if that interests you! If you don't know of him, he puts out great backpacking videos on YouTube.

  4. Love your hiking videos. Wish I could do what you are doing. Obviously you gotta know what you are doing to hike for weeks at a time across a desolate terrain. Also, the video work got to be a lot of work since you are doing it yourself.

  5. Don't remember exactly when I found your videos, but they have had a profoundly positive influence on me. I live in Canada and when the cold fall winds blow, I now head to Utah and hike and I've had many members of my family follow me down. Your videos got me moving to the point where I am considering some of the long hikes. I can't really thank you enough. Stay safe and keep 'em coming. Thank you.
