In this video I give you some idea of what is to come on the channel over the coming year or so. It is an exciting time in the PaleoHikerMD household, and we hope you will come along for the ride!

Refinishing a New Axe Handle: Snow and Nealley Penobscot Bay Kindling Axe

Snow & Nealley Axe_Fotor

Hey everyone! Sorry my videos have been slow to come out lately, but we are still knee deep in work at the new house…

I finally stole a morning to get away into the new shop and worked on a new axe I WON in Lenni’s giveaway from Live the Adventure! If you have not checked out Lenni’s channel, click on the link below and give him a follow!

Like many people I don’t like the way most axe handles feel when they come from the factory. The gloss finish is slippery, dangerous, and just does not feel good in the hands. In this video I show you my quick way to refinish an axe handle to make it safer and more comfortable! Thanks as always for watching 🙂

Overnight Backpacking on the Backbone Trail

Backbone Overnight_Fotor

Join my buddy Philip and I as we head out on the Backbone Trail in Kistachie Hills Wilderness Area for an overnight adventure. The weather was amazing, and we had a wonderful time.

We hike in, find our spot, set up our hammocks, search for fatwood, cook dinner over an open fire, and tons more! It was so nice to FINALLY get out for a night in the woods…it had been too long. I hope for more overnight adventures soon, so stay tuned!

Gear Review: Trangia Spirit Burner

Trangia Spirit Burner_Fotor

This is a classic piece of equipment, but for those not familiar with this great little alcohol stove I think a full review is in order! This is one of my two favorite alcohol stoves, the other being my DIY Cat Can Stove. When not concerned about weight, this is my go to stove.

The review gives all the specifics, as well as what makes it the best general alcohol stove in my opinion. Thanks for watching!
