    The Hiking Thread

    Shop Now
    We need a dedicated thread for all things hiking, quite a few threads going around recently regarding this activity. There was a thread awhile back in 2013 that contained quite a few posts and beautiful pics of member's hikes, bummer it stalled out. It would be interesting to get things going again.

    Snowshoeing counts as hiking too for those of us snowbound right now. General info about the hike along with pics seems like a good idea. Gear recommendations would be welcome too.

    If there is one out there that I missed let me know and I will delete this one and post on the other but I couldn't find anything close other than the old thread I mentioned.

    So what do you think?

    I love hiking (we call it tramping) and I will follow a thread with interest.

    Here's a pic from the high point of my most recent outing:

    Food prep for 4-day backpack in the Grand Canyon next week. Breakfast packets:
    IMG_0451.jpg
    Macros for each breakfast:
    What Prot Fat Carbs Cal Why
    Whey 48g 3g 6g 240 Protein
    Gelatin 22g 0 0 90 Aminos
    Nido 7g 9g 11g 160 Fat, vitamins
    Chia 9g 14g 15g 180 O3's, fiber
    TOTAL 86g 26g 32g 670

    Over the past decade I've gone from oatmeal to Grapenuts, to.... and settled on this. Compact, indestructible, quick to make in the morning, can consume hot or cold, keeps me going until about 10AM, can drink it while breaking camp.

    I'll post a pic or two when I get back next week.

    Gear recommendation: in the upper right corner of the pic you can kinda see my Ursack - Kevlar bear-proof food bag. These things are bomb-proof, had this one for almost 10 years. No bears in the Big Ditch, but the crows will tear apart your backpack to get at your food bag, and hanging your food doesn't work with birds.

    Snowshoe hike yesterday with friends starting from the house about 2 miles doorstep to doorstep. Hard going, heavy deep snow with temps at 15 F with 30 mph winds (-20 F) so it was a bit frigid. Sweet views though overlooking the mountains and Penobscot Bay (Atlantic Ocean). Better then sitting on the couch.

    Here's a picture from a day hike I did in Kauai.

    Here's a write-up I did for Gossamer Gear.

    Here's a picture from the other day hiking at the elbow of California in Gaviota State Park. Spring has sprung!
