💁🏼‍♂️ About this episode:
My daughter and I are planning a fall section hike of the Appalachian Trail. But before we set out we did a “dry run” on the Ice Age Trail to test out our gear set up. Here is a rundown of the gear we bought on Amazon.

  • Was the lake tattoo the way of navigation before google maps & gps? That sleeping bag feeling reminds me of an old-style wet sheer shower curtain that would often try to wrap around you. Hope to see more video's from the trails.

  • Nicely done. Thanks for sharing.

  • Hello my friends, new to your channel. I support your channel too. I am into the outdoors. I noticed in watching your video that I have similar gear. I look forward to seeing your videos. Take Care and Keep Exploring The Outdoors.

  • Nice gear to get started with. I would suggest starting with low miles and see how it goes. The important part is that you guys are getting out. I think it is great to see a father daughter team enjoying time with each other. As you get more experience you can consider slowly upgrading with some lighter gear to enjoy bigger mile days. It is all a learning process, enjoy it! God bless.
    P.S. – love the travel bidets, never used one before, but the idea of getting refreshed and clean when you haven’t showered in a while seems like a great idea to prevent chafing and “monkey butt”.

  • Good stuff, thanks for sharing

  • Interested to see what changes you make – those are some mighty big packs….

  • We love the GoSpa travel bidet for camping/hiking! Thank you for spreading the word!

  • My mom and I did the 41 miles in maryland in June!! We had never backpacked and aren’t even regular hikers! We full sent it! We bought our gear new on amazon too! I would bring an extra bottle each. We were mostly surprised about how little water is on the trail. i’m sure regular hikers are used to it but we went 9 miles without a source of water it was a big struggle especially going up and down the mountains. We weren’t super conditioned for it but definitely the water is worth the weight on your pack. Let me know if you have any questions I love to tell you more about it!

  • Looking forward to your hiking video 🙂

  • What do your packs weigh? Will food be MREs? Are you doing any physical training? How many miles per day? The Appalachian trail has designated campsites scattered throughout. Do you want company? Do you want a base camp or standby contingency person? We're in Maryland, have hiked the Appalachian trail. Eagle Scout, have my own gear already, fellow Alto owner. Interested in making new Alto friends.

  • Thanks for showing us your gear!

  • If you were to do the entire trail you'd want to go much lighter… and, don't forget the duct tape and mole skin… nylon rope… for starters..
