Winter Survival Shelter – Prepping for snow

2018-12-06T03:21:15+00:00

I was pretty exited to head up to the survival shelter this past weekend, I could see the surrounding mountains had what looked like a decent blanket of snow on their tops. Unfortunately as I got closer to shelter range I realized that the snow line was probably 1000 ft

Wild Mountain Goats – AMAZING ROCK CLIMBERS!

2018-11-25T00:58:04+00:00

Being somewhat of a mountain goat myself I can really admire these amazing cliff climbers. Despite it's name the mountain goat is actually a member of the antelope family. Typically found in alpine regions, mountain goats are true masters of the mountain often found on rocky ledges and outcrops. This

I am a big fan of the white stuff. Snow season allows me to shift gears and challenge myself in new ways. I have been rushing to finish a winter survival shelter before the white stuff starts to drop... any day now! In this video I explain the basic construction

Winter Hammock Camping – Managing Cold and Condensation

2018-10-23T00:57:50+00:00

The video you see here is one of the first hammock camping videos I shot. In the early hammock camping days I was trying all kinds of things to stay warm. I actually started out with just a sleeping bag and emergency blanket in Winter, those were tough lessons. I

Finally the OneTigris DOUBLE hammock underquilt arrived. With the cold season knocking at the door I was eager to get out and test the under quilt on my Hennessy hammock before the snow flies. Getting things dialed in before snow camping is always a good idea. This is the second

2018-09-27T02:25:13+00:00

Clearly I enjoy punishing myself. A great way to do this is to take a mountain bicycle for a walk up a mountain... you could take your dog but riding your dog downhill may not be as fun.

OGW Review – The OneTigris 3 season hammock underquilt

2018-09-27T01:09:59+00:00

For years I have considered purchasing an underquilt for my Hennessy hammock expeditions. Unfortunately good cold weather underquilts just seemed so ridiculously priced. I've been using my trusty lightweight Thermarest sleeping pad in my Hennessy for several years now and have been quite satisfied. Recently I stumbled upon the OneTigris

So here I am on a little weekend excursion trying out a new sleep system combining my bivy sack and the Big Agnes Air Core Ultra. Given the terrain on this trip and the fact that I had decided to make the summit with my mountain bike I had to

Hennessey Hammock vs Falling branches and Snow

2018-09-27T01:50:27+00:00

Nothing beats a good brisk charge up a snowy mountain with a crap load of gear on your back… who says an over-nighter can’t be a challenge! With this philosophy in mind I decided to investigate some of the surrounding mountains near my off grid property. To make it a
