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!

Day Hiking the Backbone Trail and Lunch Time Shoutouts!

Backbone Trail_Fotor

Hey everyone, hope your new year is starting off well! I have had my eye on the Backbone trail for quite some time. It is in the Kistachie Hills Wilderness area so it is very undeveloped land.

The goal of this video is to give the viewed a detailed idea of what hiking the trail is like. This terrain is unlike any I have encountered in the state of Louisiana. It is rocky, hilly, and reminds me very much of hiking in the Ozarks in Arkansas.

I give some much deserved shoutouts while eating lunch, so please make sure and check out my friends on YouTube!
