Nothing better than dad and son time backpacking; my 10 year old and I did an overnighter up to # 31 at Porters Creek back in July. And I have a 72 hour pass for the Smokies this weekend!

Awesome video. Thanks for posting. I have not had the opportunity to hike and camp like I hoped I would here in Montana, but it is refreshing to see videos of people getting out to the woods and living the dream.

Nice video, the Smokies are beautiful. It's been so dry, The rain seems to have helped. A couple of those spots you showed looked like they'd make for tough river crossings.

I love taking my kids out with me.

Dang, dude.

That's the saddest thing I've read on the internet. I was hoping to live vicariously through you.

Good to see Rock doing more videos. That kid looks like somebody I've seen on my TV.

Hey First Sergeant!!!

Nice Video. Enjoyed all of it and learned something too. That's some fancy hardware on your tarp. Looked like you used Mule tape on your hammock. I'd like to see how you do that on some future video.
Why do dehydrated mashed potatoes and spam taste so darn good on the trail?

Taking my hammock and tarp down to Florida to hang with my grandsons and his Cub Scout Pack for a long weekend.
