    Denali is higher than Whitney and on the same continent. I think you meant it is the highest mountain in the contiguous states.

  2. neoaliphant says:

    How about : Bushcraft in your location, Dave Canterbury often mentions some specifics about bushcraft in Ohio/Eastern woodlands, how about discussing the area where you live….

  3. Cragdwella says:

    Always great to see you out and about man ! Really exited for you and your JMT hike ! I think the series is a great idea. You are a gold standard on YouTube my friend ! Hope things are well my friend ! Peace ✌️

  4. Matt Miller says:

    Awesome John, "of course". I like this series and I think you should continue with it. My favorite videos are always your actual backpacking trips. My suggestion for a fireside topic is to discuss some of your favorite backpacking memories or experiences. So, what is one of your favorite backpacking experiences?

  5. mainedwella says:

    Hello! You are a great outdoor advocate and I love your style. Enjoyed this video as always, keep it going, Peace, MD

  6. You're definitely right that you can get started backpacking for cheap. If you go no cook you can put together a kit for rather cheap, even with all new gear. I got along fine with a $30 tent and $5 stove until recently. Nothing will be lightweight, of course, and you won't be comfy in a snow storm and 60 mph winds, but what's wrong with building a little muscle 🙂

  11. I never saw the beginning of this series back in the day but I'm glad you've brought it back around, John! Once again, so glad to see you back in your element and seemingly at peace. Keep it up, and stay safe buddy!

  12. Brian Spencer says:

    Well John: Looks like some interesting times ahead When I started tripping I had a backup for almost everything. Now I feel better if one thing has 2-4 uses. Thanks Brian 77

  13. Dan Wilder says:

    Starting in camping tip. Pick your season. In best weather you can start with a swim air mattress, blanket, cheapest tent, light fry pan tin coffee pot and “comfortable shoes”.

  14. Dan Wilder says:

    I started watching you when you did bacon and eggs in a bag. I’d like more cooking videos.

  17. Eric Martinez says:

    I LOVE your channel! One topic I think would be useful is tips/help/guidance for finding local trails where camping is allowed. I think a lot of beginners are scared of accidentally breaking the law.

  18. Darignobullseye says:

    Thanks. I like to go out and sometimes stop. Thanks for saying, just go out and enjoy outdoors way you want.
    Loved the car shade idea. That is Fantastic!

  19. cahighcountry says:

    Hey John! Glad to see videos up and running again! Hopefully all works out for that big backpacking trip in cali. I have some great fishing tips for the high country trout fishing.. which im sure u already know. Let me know if you have any questions about the john muir trail too it’s totally awesome. I hope you catch a golden trout assuming you are gonna fish! Good luck my friend! -Kurt

  20. Melissa Christel says:

    Awesome. There’s a documentary on the JMT called ‘ Mile, mile and a half’ great film, bet you’d love it.

  21. Dan Libby says:

    Nice Chat! keep the videos coming! I would enjoy seeing your next adventure from start to finish. I enjoy your light weight backpack ideas. How do I make a suggestion for your tip -of-the -week?

  22. Mark Davis says:

    Great advice for the first timer. I would have said the same. Go on a day hike first to see if you even like being out doors and in nature. Then if you do like it work your way up to an over night camping trip. Be sure to take water, snacks and a first aide kit and you'll be good to go.

  23. Tim M says:

    Yes, I would like to have a seat next to that fire! Please take care of yourself.

  24. Sas Quatch says:

    Love the DIY videos, bro. Would love to see some ultralight packing that includes fishing equipment.

    BTW, I buy a LOT of camping gear at Goodwill. I've gotten hundreds of dollars worth of high-end camp cook kits for pennies on the dollar. For some reason tho, I just can't ditch my Foster pot. I'm a DIY junkie.

  25. Warren Davidson says:

    Good chat John.  Do you have a problem with sleep pad slipping around on tent floor.   I have a Neo-Air and its like being on a skating rink.  Thanks
