This is great! Thanks for posting it.
Frozen socks made me laugh out loud. Bttt (been there, thawed those).
InReach for those "going to be late for dinner" episodes.

Lots of good video footage of a pretty rough trip. Beautiful brookies too. One thing I would do if I was him is get some thick portage pads. Yikes, he's on a bare wood yoke. Swift sells a pad for 30.00.

Watched part one the other day. I don't think part two is out yet. That is a tough trip!!

Cliffhanger.

i do really enjoy his videos. i like the fact he started sleeping in hammocks. he eat's well, fishes, and does quite well, and is just an all around nice guy. he doe's take some hardcore routes up there.

+1 on the yoke thing, could not imagine doing a trip like that without a padded yoke system.

I have that exact same Teal contoured yoke on my SRQ16, and the flat contours really help spread the weight much better than you think. After a few trips with bare woods did add a thin 1/2 pad that straps on mainly to improve the grip, but those big blocks are not needed. I’d say the yoke was a relatively minor discomfort compared to wet footing in that cold water.

On the gear front, who brings a 7 inch Silky to go down a wild river that may not have been travelled for 25 years? I’d think a Katanaboy and at least a 24 inch bow would be called for!

I was impressed how he would express concern for Erin needing to call for S&R for his being late, yet he would take time to fish! And knowing there were bookies that he could not fry up too.

Very nice video. Looking forward to part 2.

I think he was fishing to hopefully catch and keep something he could eat. To sustain his effort, he'd need protein.

Great video, what type of rod holder is he using? Anyone know?
 
10/14/2019 10:51AM
I too only use the ash portage yoke on my tandem. With my life jacket on I find it really comfortable and don't need pads.

Really enjoyed part one, thanks for posting. I'm not sure I would take on a trip like that but it sure is fun to watch someone else hammer through it. I do know that I would leave the deodorant at home.

Great video. Very good cinematography. He takes a lot of time to get good shots, especially given how difficult the travel is at times. I like how he doesnt focus on all the bushcraft / firewood processing nonsense and just gets to the task at hand. I had to laugh when he brought out the deodorant, for a 5 day trip? A very honest and genuine presentation.

As I watched the video, I found myself pulling a blanket around me when he tapped his frozen socks together!

Beautiful scenery at the end of the second video with the snow on the trees!

When he told of how he crossed the river bridge looking, wondering where the river went, I understood that completely. How many of us have had those same thoughts? We want to go see but for different reasons we don't commit to the task. His commitment to planning, working hard, and completing the route will be his forever reward!

agree, the guy is just 100% freshly sincere. When he expressed his sentiments that he wished Erin was there to help - made my heart melt. Can't wait to watch part two after work tonight! Thanks again for sharing this, MissMolly!

So glad you're enjoying the videos, Jill.

Here's a short, interesting one.

i enjoyed part 2. i don't see how he can wet foot during those cold days with keen sandals, imo, the worst wet-footing footwear out there.

Wanderlust. Or is it waterlust?

Think about the waterfalls he saw. Now think about how few people have ever seen them or will ever see them.

For many of us, there is no difference.

Thanks, Molly. Thanks a bunch...

When I began hammock-camping this summer, I was gratified by the idea that predators (like deer mice and earthworms) would no longer rub against the fly. That lasted for about five minutes. Then I learned the sensation of "raccoon running back and forth around camp under hammock". That was a special night.

Great video. I think those thoughts everytime i cross a bridge across a river. I wonder what that adventure would be like.

What a great back country adventure! Not sure if I'd want to tackle it solo, and imo, an InReach is a piece of gear that should have been brought along. I think of it as a responsible thing to do, if for no other reason than to make it easier for the search crew to find your body.

"On the gear front, who brings a 7 inch Silky to go down a wild river that may not have been travelled for 25 years? I’d think a Katanaboy and at least a 24 inch bow would be called for!"

The small saw is an invaluable piece of gear because there are so many spruce and balsam where the small branches block your way but the trunk is too big to cut. I always bring a small ax or saw just for these.

This was a great watch - beautiful country!
