Extra Credit VII “Companions”

Extra Credit is video series that examines topics related to history in the Thunder Bay District and exploring that history.

Most people hike in pairs, with a group or with a special furry friend. Companions are often an integral part of the being in the outdoors, so this episode is all about my experiences during my 30+ years of exploring. Who is your favourite hiking companion?

Extra Credit II “Load Bearing”

Extra Credit is video series that examines topics related to history in the Thunder Bay District and exploring that history.

This episode deals with load bearing, or in other words, carrying stuff. If you want to be successful on your hikes or explorations, you need to be able to bring with you the right gear for the situation. I detail 3 levels or types of equipment I use to carry my gear, from a light-duty fanny pack to an off the beaten path, heavy-duty tactical vest. I’ll also highlight examples of the gear I carry with me. Your questions and comments are welcome.

Enjoy!
