  1. My Scout Troop is hiking the PCT from Warner Springs to the Eagle Rock. It was cool to see you pass Eagle Rock in your first video. Thanks for all the information and the videos.

  2. Love watching! Looks like you are have a great trip. Question, what brand of sun glasses do you wear? Are they prescription?

  3. Hi Darwin- Been following you for a while and really enjoy your videos. I have a question, could you do a video (or respond here) on how you manage your videos/pictures while on trail and uploading content. I love taking pictures with my phone, and I’ve run into storage issues in the past. thanks ahead of time. You rock!

    • Hey Alexander! That is a water bottle that is made just by a dude. He does sell them via his Facebook account however I’ll need to touch base with Darwin on the dude’s contact info. Sorry! – Snuggles

  4. I have just found your videos and website. Awesome stuff! Do you have a list of what you carry in your ditty bag? Would really love some information!

  5. Hey guys, I love the information you put on here and the trail experience you guys share. Awesome job!

    Question on Darwin’s PTC shelter: How has the single wall design faired during rainy times on the trail, particularly during 24 hour periods or consecutive days of rain? Any issues with the inside getting wet when packing it, then being unable to dry it out?

    Z-packs is a great company, and there gear in just as great! But living (and hiking) in MN, we have quite a bit of rain in the spring and summer. So I have some reservations about single wall vs. double wall tents in this regard.

    Thank you in advance! Have a safe journey!

    • Hey Michael! Darwin is planning on doing a full review of all his gear post hike​. Thus far I have heard no complaints on th​e tent from him, but again he will be breaking everything down when he finishes! – Snuggles

  6. Just wondering what leg covering you use. I’m looking from something to protect from UV and insects (I live in KY and ticks & chiggers are bad!). Notice you wear some in videos, but don’t see them listed here. I hate pants and would like something I can slip on and off as needed. I enjoy watching and learning from your video’s. Good Luck on the Trail.

  7. I just watched the latest video and was thinking about Darwin’s fall onto his tailbone. I studied Aikido for a number of years and one of the few things I remember is how to fall safely. It could be worth signing up for a couple of classes of Aikido, Judo, or Jiu-Jutsu, or even asking a teacher to just show you how to break-fall. You’d need to practice for a little bit to get the muscle memory, but it would take a bit of the fear out of slippery descents and the like.
    Keep doing what you do, you good people!
