Hey guys, good job so far, nice to see the hiking going well. Just one thing I wanted to mention with the best of intentions. I noticed the kids using their poles in a few scenes, and they are classically pushing them forward and "braking" when they should be using them more like a ski poll - pushing forward rather than sticking them out in front of them while hiking up hill, for example. Watch this great BPL video that explains it way better than I could:

I just wanted to post a friendly note and that link, in the hopes you'll be able to view this video at your next internet stop. Those trekking poles can be your best friend when used correctly, but they'll actually harm your hiking when you use them incorrectly. Happy trails and wishing you guys great weather on the trail.

This is part of a Kickstarter campaign where the first few are free but then you pay to watch the rest. To my knowledge, this was just for promotional reasons only and isn't being funded by BPL membership money.

All episodes will be published here on 06/02/2014 09:33:20 MDT Print View

All episodes will be published here, but there may be times where there is a delay between when they are published at Toe Salad, and when they are published on BPL. There are a lot of logistics involved in getting these published as we go. When episode 8 was published on Toe Salad, so many things were flying during that town stop that I forgot to email BPL with the new video code. It should be published here this week, along with episode 9.

This project was not funded by BPL membership money. BPL was very supportive with publicity during our campaign though, so we are letting them publish here too.

Absolutely, it's just that we are all enjoying it so much Damien.
I find it incredible how you organized the logistics.
Don't worry about grumbling masses: see it as a compliment.....
