  • Perspective is hilarious. Your crappy hike is my fantasy #NYClife. Enjoyed the realness of your crankiness☺️

  • Thanks for the video Zach! I completed the SB6K this past Nov and my next challenge is the NC High Peaks Black Mountains. Only makes sense in that I hiked all of the Black Mountain Crest Trail to bag peaks for SB6K. I have watched your other Black Mountain videos to get an idea of what is ahead of me! Can't wait to get started on remaining trails.
