    I've never really posted anything too personal on here before, but I have really grown to love BHW over the years and feel many people on here are actually close friends.

    Anyways, I wanted to share something about me with this community. I really love hiking and backpacking. I recently took this cool lil hike by some local mountains and thought I'd share it with you guys.

    Take a break from IM for a moment and get out and enjoy this short little hike with me.

    Also, it be cool if you guys that like hiking share some cool pics or vids that you have gotten on any of your hikes. I'd love to see them!

    Consider doing the PCT. It is on my bucket list, and TMB too.

    Over the years I've done sections here and there in WA and OR. I did 25 miles straight a couple years back.

    Here is a cool short vid i did on top of a waterfall.

    Great video, man. I watched it muted so I'm not sure the context, but that's a beautiful trail (from what I hear). Love hiking. Grew up in the Appalachians. Dad and I used to section hike the AT. He still does, I moved to South Carolina a few years back. Definitely not enough nice hiking trails here, but I make do with what I can.

    Here is some cool waterfalls. This is called Dougan falls. Voted one of the top ten swimming holes in the US. Just 45 minutes from me....lucky me :)

    The video is great, it's always lovely to see people appreciate nature. I live close to a forest and I love going there for walks. Thanks for sharing a bit of your life with us:)

    Hmm Skvebug
    Good to see your family supporting you.
    And your little princess is too cute.
    I think so you are enjoying your each and every hiking with your family.
    When you told me that you are going with a dog for every hiking, I thought either it will be a GS ( German Shepard) otherwise Bull Dog.
    But you are going with a small one.
    Is that ok for you.
    Hmm Nice sharing Brother. Waiting for your new hiking images and videos.
