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 little more challenging I grabbed the Hennessy hammock, mustered some gear I had in my truck for some “challenge” weight, stuffed it in my bug out bag and said no thanks to my snow shoes.

Despite almost being impaled by a falling branch during the night and only a couple hours sleep, I had a great little trip.

Live Free and Breath.
