Winter Camping Solo on Vermont's Long Trail hiking with a dog

Winter Camping Solo on Vermont's Long Trail hiking with a dog

My dog Summit and I started from journey’s end heading south. We got more snow than anticipated but the unknown is always the most interesting part of the journey. Join us for 3 days and 2 nights out on Vermont’s long trail in the winter.

Everyone is asking what type of dog, He is a mutt with my guess of Belgian Malinois/Lab.
And no we don’t carry weapons with us as there is nothing to fear out there but yourself.

    Improvise – Adapt – Overcome! Love it. Just discovered your channel and enjoyed your trek. What were some lessons that you learned from this one?

    I usually like camping dog videos. You don’t need to take much, but you’ve got a guitar XD XD XD

    can you camp freely where ever you want?

  16. IceBear hikes on July 20, 2020 at 8:09 pm

    Thank you for this video. It’s the most informative winter camping video I’ve seen yet. And Summit is adorable!

    Booties for your dogs feet it so important that I see people forget on the trail all the time. Even sled dogs wear booties after a while. So I’m so glad you thought of your bf while taken him out. My dog sleeps in my bag or hammock too with me.

  18. Yuri Klaver on July 20, 2020 at 8:10 pm

  22. Madison Castillo on July 20, 2020 at 8:13 pm

    Your lucky you got snow in your world,
    If California we ain’t got SHITT, we have mountains, but aren’t beautiful than those featured in your video.
    All we got here is hotness.
    And I love the snow, I have been in snow before. I love the cold.

  23. Go Faster on July 20, 2020 at 8:16 pm

    You are absolute inspiration Me and my wife my going to the white mountains this weekend. Every time we go back packing, I feel like a child at Christmas

  24. Lucky Hiker on July 20, 2020 at 8:17 pm

    I really miss your vids. Old ones are worth watching again.

  25. booboobearbaby on July 20, 2020 at 8:17 pm

    Your dog is the best sleeping bag, just snuggle with him and you will warmer than anything.

  26. RpetsAndUs on July 20, 2020 at 8:18 pm

    Very enjoyeable to watch you hiking and camping in this winter wonderland, but it must have been cold there!

  27. Richard Shansky on July 20, 2020 at 8:25 pm

    Nice job.  I’m impressed with you carrying in a real thermos, and a guitar!  I used to hike with someone who carried in a full-size wok and a banjo.  It’s all about your priorities.  Peace man.

  28. Slippery Storm on July 20, 2020 at 8:29 pm

    Fantastic !!!

  40. IG: lifecyclehikes on July 20, 2020 at 8:39 pm

    I like some of your camping tricks, will borrow those. Same thing happens on the FT if you hike out of season. Overgrown and easy to get lost. I look at both blazes on a tree and that usually gives two directions. Not always. That must have been a mind fk everything being white and looking for a white blaze. Give you credit for getting out there. Happy trails.

  41. Hurlanator on July 20, 2020 at 8:40 pm

    Great intro, taking a piss.

  42. George Gwynn on July 20, 2020 at 8:41 pm

    Amazing fucking video dude, amazing, and I actually thought the joke about elvis was amusing, drink more wine

  43. Mark Griffin on July 20, 2020 at 8:41 pm

    Great words of encouragement at the closing. Bless you as you navigated the direction life leads you towards.

    The beginning seemed a lil immature…pissing your name in the snow..but because the video has a lot of likes I kept watching.

  48. Fix it Force Morrissey on July 20, 2020 at 8:46 pm

    Baffin borealis boots do me very well. Removable liners make it easy to keep dry and warm. Good stuff man. I’ll sub. You should too
