Hiking and History in Prince William Forest, Virginia (an AT Prep Hike and Vlogging Experiment)

For the past several months I have been having a fierce debate with myself as to whether I should vlog my Appalachian Trail thru-hike. To help me with the decision, I decided to do a practice run by making a video of a recent hike I did in Prince William Forest, Virginia, a beautiful park just a hop, skip, and jump from Washington, D.C. If I do vlog my thru-hike, I plan to include a history angle alongside the usual content one finds in thru-hiking vlogs (e.g., beautiful views, hard climbs, and interesting people) and have done a bit of that here. This is my first attempt at making a video of any kind so l welcome any feedback, technical tips (seem to be having some audio issues here and there that I can’t figure out), thoughts on content, and any other criticisms or suggestions. Let me know what you think and thanks for watching.
