    Next time you guys swing around you should try out Clifty Wilderness. It's the eastern part and contains swifty camp creek and wildcat as well as the osbourne loop, copperas creek falls, etc.

  2. Sage One says:

    Great all around. Photography and the Heart orientated commenting.

  3. Amber MacPherson says:

    I used to live in WV, OH, and KY and this was my favorite place to backpack. This is a really nice video! It makes me wish I had paid more attention to the plant life when I was there. Nice job guys!

  4. Ismail Hossain says:

    when Andrew talks of how nature teaches us about how we are meant to have a life of balance (and so many other motivational verses midst of most adventure archives videos) , i would like to see short cuts of those parts on your instagram or fb and make them accessible. i honestly want these stuff to reach out to more ppl cheers

  5. Tim Adkins says:

    Wow, that was a really big Copperhead ! Rare to see one that size. Great video !

  6. Man in the Mirror says:

    I've been watching all of your videos…by far the best i've seen on youtube. if you want to trek here in ph send me an email…cheers!

  7. 1903A3shooter says:

    Well much fun the second time watching, but you fellows sure might look into a water proof tent. Much better than getting wet. Take care Dave.

  8. Benjamin Klein says:

    Fantastic!!!! I love watching your videos!!! A huge thank you and keep up the great work!

  9. Ian Allen says:

    Love all your guys videos. The camaraderie and especially the pointing out of new different species. Its nice learn about new plants while enjoying such beautiful places. I would love to see you guys check out the HOH rainforest and all the creatures within. Just be sure to watch out for Bigfoot and wild man mike dodge.

  10. LexLionHearted says:

    I live in Lexington KY. Been to the Gorge a lot but never did an overnight. It's on my list now! Thanks for the video!! Great!!

  11. thunderstormies says:

    Thanks for making these videos! Just discovered them and I've been watching a ton. They're so relaxing and just puts my mind back in the right place. Noticed one of you guys have a sternotomy scar this video and thought it was awesome that you are doing this now after what you went through. I see people dealing with terrible things and losing time in the hospital so often and it's even more of a reason we should all go out and enjoy the world we live in as much as we can, while we can. That's why I'm working on going on trips as much as I can and hopefully can become more experienced with the outdoors like you guys soon! Keep on making these and having adventures guys!

  12. Michael Lacostales says:

    You fellows are a joy to watch. Although, watching the vandalism on the rocks broke me.


    Great videos……check out the iridium stove…….its awesome and made for trips like this…'s the best cook stove ever for backcountry adventure trips
