    Within nature, it isn't just men and women who are susceptible to the conditions as life and death are very much an active part of the entire process which makes this world possible.
    In this adventure, I stumbled upon an animal which was hurt and dying and I did my best to care for it until it passed away; it was an intense adventure for many reasons.
    Additionally, the brutality of nature is presented with a series of high elevation storms with some VERY close lightning strikes.

    First, Forrest Gump is ENTERTAINMENT, not reality so it doesn't HAVE to make sense...lol. Like a LOT of entertainment, it is things that happened to a lot of people rolled into one character to make a story. Second, don't care what others may say, you did the right thing with the bird as you gave the "tough little guy" a (small at least) chance to survive by getting him out of the sun and (doubtful but possible) chance for its mother to find and feed him. So, good on you.

    Can't say mistake, but disagree with NOT collecting some firewood. Even with (rightly) deciding to not build a fire for supper, having the wood to build one in the morning for breakfast and (got to have) coffee would have been a (very) good thing and it looked like plenty of space under the fly to keep it (mostly at least) dry with out taking up your sleep room.

  • Bunnie Miller

    Potential mistake??..NO, definite mistake. When out (especially by yourself), you should NEVER pass up an opportunity to resupply with good water, you slip and break your leg who knows how long it may be getting help, so even if you have only taken a few swallows, if you are sure it is good, REFILL.


    I think you made the right choice.

    Getting off the duce. I had a Alice pack, duffel bag. A prc 25 tranciver( radio), three batteries, a ceoi , an m16a1, 100 rounds a load of combat rations, extra clothes, tent half. And bug repellent. Trust me I was one tired boy. When we set up for the night. Course I was 176 pounds. Could bench press my weight. And cover 2 miles in 16 minutes. Those days are gone. Go army. And surplus gear wears like iron.

    Reminds of an incident that was mostly my fault, i let my kitten out at night time as he only stays in my back yard but recently this summer he came back to my patio door with a small bunny rabbit trying to give it to me and that thing was bleeding everywhere and squealing. After i got him to release it, my wife was telling me to put it out of its misery; honestly i just couldn't do it, maybe if it was a mouse or rat but not a baby bunny. So after putting it in a small box with some paper towels for bedding, i called the Humane Society and luckily they picked up on a Sunday evening and said they will dispatch an Officer, sure enough they came and was told that maybe they can try to take it to a Vet in the morning or might need to put it down. Found out the next day that they ended up putting it down as the wounds were too severe, but glad it was them doing it and not me as idk what the F@*k to put it down.

    Love the video. Regarding the baby bird, I once had an adolescent raven land on my head when I was watering my garden. Wasn't sure if it was male or female but I thought it was a him. I had seen the little guy watching me so when he landed, I wasn't too freaked out because I immediately knew it was him. He had flown by close by my head a couple times. I moved him on to my shoulder and he just sat there looking at me. Anyway, I could tell he was hungry but couldn't find any worms or crickets, so ended up getting some lunch meat, sliced turkey I think. He gobbled it up, seemed to like it. He then flew off, but I was always worried if I had done the right thing, you know, did the meat make him sick. In the end I just had to hope I helped him out and maybe that little meal got him through until he caught his own food. Your story reminded me of that day. Also I think you did the right thing.

    Luke, always spray down your tent with a silicone water repellent spray. It definitely works!

    Personally Luke, I know its public domain you did what you did kindness to the bird. I would've have put it out of its misery, but you can't admit to that

  • Ozdave McGee
    Ozdave McGee 29 days ago

    I look at American and Southern hemisphere hikes in jealousy. In Australia, streams are not as close together. Meaning to rock out in summer 15km, you take 4 plus litres with 80% humidity. Depends where you go of course.

  • Ozdave McGee
    Ozdave McGee 29 days ago

    I hear you..HEAVY. I got a IRR Brit longback. Damn put a civie bag 1lb tent, Bit rain pants, light gortex rain jacket, a hoodie, sox, food, water filter sleep pad your up at 17kg. Before water. Very hot here high humidity, so I rock out with 4 litres on a ALICE harness underneath.
    That Osprey Atmos AG pack is looking more attractive on weight and ventillation more and more everyday. Only one problem..I'll want a 20lt for summer AND a 50lt to 65lt for winter...and if I buy TWO...damn there will be a female that will have a thing or 2 to say...not to mention risk to my health😂😂😂😂

    I think you need a GPS mate, and you did the right thing with the little chick. It was either going to suffer and be picked up by a bird of prey or something, but it’s in a better place now. It’s excellent watching your vlogs and knowing that your doing the same as me, with buying stuff off eBay. Unfortunately, I haven’t been hiking for years, as I have also injured me back when I was serving, so would need to be very careful with what I can do to make life comfortable. Do I want to risk going for a solo, overnight hike? I might give it a go, but not that far from my vehicle, just in case I do pull it out. Cheers

    Ever try a Big Agnes Q Core SLX mattress? They are somewhat R rated, pack down around the size of your mattress and when blown up are three inches thick. They are heaven for side sleepers like myself. And they are relatively light. Highly recommend.
    Awesome video by the way.
    You need a spider stick!

    Hi Luke.
    Thanks for sharing.
    That was a genuine humane act with the birds and as you said you'll remember the incident for the rest of your life, probably with a little sadness.
    The trip and the weather conditions were great .. I'll be following your channel regularly.

    that baby bird was so sad. TOPOGRAPHIC map at least would give you info that would be better than nothing. gps will pin point you on the map. mark an overlay of clear plastic. could save your life. that has got to be a great tent. too heavy for my needs. not wise to be on a bald with lightning. when you get home air dry with a hair dryer. seam seal use a smell defuse air wick for a day or two. truly enjoy your trips with you.
