Video Updates from the Trail: Recapping the Week of 4/2/22

It’s that time of year again: It’s vlogging season!  To celebrate all of the exciting video content pouring in from the trail right now, we’ve recapped some of our favourite highlights from The Trek’s esteemed class of 2022 Vloggers.

Ryan’s 2022 PCT Thru-Hike: Introduction and Eagle Creek Training Hike (#1)

In Ryan’s first video for The Trek, we get an intro from his decked out van. Now 27-years-old, he’s been backpacking for over 10 years, adequately preparing him for his biggest trek yet: The Pacific Crest Trail. Ryan takes us on his training hike at Eagle Creek featuring lush forests and stunning waterfalls. Ryan highly recommends taking this alternate if you’re planning on thru-hiking the PCT this season. I mean, the beauty speaks for itself!

Zack’s 2022 Arizona Trail Thru-Hike: Intro

In this first video from Zack, we learn what inspired him to take on the Arizona Trail. Prior to discovering hiking as his newfound hobby, Zack was not an avid backpacker. It wasn’t until he ran into a crew of AZT thru-hikers that he came to learn that the world of thru-hiking existed. Inspired by the AZT hikers, Zack reset his priorities and actively pursued a life spent on trail. Inspired by the hiking community, Zack is ready to take on the AZT and is stoked to create lifelong friendships along the way.

Ryan’s PCT 2022 thruhike: GEAR STUFF (#2)

In this second video from Ryan, he gives us an overview of the gear that will be going with him on his attempted Pacific Crest Trail thru-hike. We all know you’re itching to catch a peek of his gear set-up, so here’s a little teaser of his big three:

Tent: Gossamer Gear The One

Sleeping bag: Enlightened Equipment 10-degree Revelation

Pack: Hyperlite Southwest 50L (a staple piece of gear for Ryan)

Make sure to check out the rest of his video to see which other goodies he’s bringing along with him on the PCT.
