Went up to New Hampshire as I typically do every year on this weekend. The intention was to do a 4 day hike during the prime fall foliage change. Made a last minute decision to change that up due to iffy weather and also I’d be starting a new job the day after I got back. Didn’t want to be cutting it close so decided on a much more relaxed pace shorter mountain view hike and a easy walk in and camp. Ended up be a great and enjoyable choice.

We ended up seeing pretty limited people once we split off to the west to hit South Doublehead and ended up having the Mountain Pond Shelter all to ourselves. There also appeared to be a super moon we got to watch rise over the woods and light the night sky like it was day time.

I have removed all affiliate links from my videos. While I was specifically going out of my way to disclose any affiliate status in my videos, as well as recommend people not purchase gear or items they don’t need, having these affiliate links has always felt slightly contrary to how I would like to operate. I am considering / working on other ways viewers could directly support the channel. Hopefully updates on this to follow.

Please note that I am not recommending any of the gear seen in any of my videos. This is what I use and what I have found works best for me and my hiking style at this current period of time. I have come to these conclusions through vast levels of trial and error with gear. In my opinion the only way you will find what truly works for you is by using the gear you already have and finding its positives and negatives. Do not buy gear just because it worked for, or was recommended by, someone on YouTube.
