Hiking The Trail Grows Another Year Older

HTTBDHeader

July is a month where we celebrate this great nations independence. July is also the month that Hiking The Trail grows another year older. Lots of awesome things have happened this year and so many more to come. I want to thank all of you for enjoying the ride along with me.

What happened in the last year?

What is next?

To be honest I have no idea what is next. Not really having a set path has been both exciting and a little stressful. I am excited to see what I can list as what happened in a year from now.  Two of the highlights of this upcoming year include attending Outdoor Retailer in August. In early September I will be heading to northern Idaho for the #HellHikeAndRaft adventure.

I hope you all are just as excited as I am to continue this awesome adventure I call life.

Happy Trails.

Nite Ize Figure 9 Tent Line Kit – Gear Review

We have all been there. We get to camp late and setting up camp is a hassle.  The hardest part of setting up the tent is always staking out and setting of the guy lines. Nite Ize has come up with a clever little system that utilizes their Figure 9 rope tighteners. It replaces the plastic loop system that comes with the tents. This system also removes having to tie and untie knots to get the tent set up and torn down.

The Nite Ize Figure 9 Tent Line kit comes with four 8′ reflective guy lines and four Figure 9 rope tighteners.  The reflective guy lines will help prevent you tripping over them once you have them in place.

The key difference with the Figure 9 system is that it utilizes a notched grip system with teeth that keeps the rope in place. You can see how the system works in the photo to the right. (more…)

The states we traveled through were Arizona Utah Colorado New Mexico Kansas and Missouri. The total distance traveled was 1,446.6 miles. These videos are a time-lapse of the almost 1500 miles.
