We’re in a Magazine! Special Guest Hike in Austin

State Parkers (Clint and Melody Parker) would like to thank Brian Kevin of Outside Magazine for mentioning our channel in the September issue. The Article is about Adventure Archives and how YouTube has become a fascinating medium for regular people to inspire others by sharing their adventures. It’s an honor to share a page in a national publication with Robby, Bryan, Andrew and Thomas of A.A.

On this hike I bring along a long time friend from grade school. Thanks to REI for having a copy of the magazine for us to purchase and enjoy. Austin, TX is a great place to romp around on foot. You never know what kind of interesting things you might see on the Trail. Melody McClellan did a great job of keeping the pace and mood of this adventure at top level. So much fun and sweat. Ants all over my backpack would have been an issue had it not been for her quick thinking. Common sense is a good thing to have.

    Very cool about the magazine mention. That would blow my mind if that ever happened to me. You have a great YouTube channel. I've been following along for a while now. Keep up the good work.

  3. David Goodridge says:

    Congrats on being in the magazine. Nice meeting Melody. Enjoyed the video…thanks

  4. Andres Natalino says:

    Awesome sauce, glad to see the channel back. There is so much to see just in the downtown and Zilker area Love the layers on the soundtrack too. Being mentioned in "outside" is just a small taste of what cross promotion can do!
