Photo essay: Another excellent adventure in California
In answer to whether a textile hiker thinks about clothes while hiking, I know I do when I’m hiking with clothes on - I’m all the time wishing I could take them off and how they’re sweaty and sticking to me!!
A beautifully detailed description of an exciting brush land hike.
Well done on both counts,
I think that zen state you look to achieve
on your hikes can come to you naked or clothed while you are “engaged” in anything you’re doing.
Wonderful account of your freehiking. The photos were excellent That area looks ripe for wandering around. Sorry to hear about your reaction to the PRP injection. My gf had a PRP injection for her inflamed hip. It worked wonders though one has to wonder if the hip would have gotten better on its own.
The images, the description & the video in the article are so realistic that I have the feeling as if I am on the trail with you. I really would like to appreciate your courage to have a trail in such a lonely, remote & very vast place..
Best wishes for your passion & future trails..
Love it, Fred!
Hey, I’ve got a question for you. So I was free hiking in an area that I like to frequent that has little traffic. Out & back trail. No cars at the trailhead so I hiked in boldly with my clothes in my backpack. On the way back, I was a little more concerned that I might run into someone. Got my clothes out, but instead of putting them on I draped my shirt across my backpack’s waist belt so it hung down and covered my jiggly bits. Nothing in back. Sort of like a loincloth. In theory it should be legal because for it to be indecency you have to expose your privates. Kinda glad I did because a trail runner came up from behind me and wasn’t expecting it. Scared the beejeebers out of me. Anyway, do you have any thoughts about hiking with something like a loincloth when you’re not 100% sure you’re alone? Thanks.
Super Fred...I envy you!!!!
If you havent recovered those video files yet Recuva is free, quite old but can work well. Restoration is similarly old and might not work on Win 11, its free though. Puran File Recovery is also free.
Stellar Data Recovery Free Edition offers up to 1GB of recovery I believe, or there is a paid for version that is unlimited.
There is a ton of undelete/recovery software/apps out there. Paid for ones by AOMEI and EaseUS are often found on software deal sites for free. Its worth trying several as some work better on different OSs, and devices. Microsoft have a command line based one if you're OK with command line work - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/recover-lost-files-on-windows-10-61f5b28a-f5b8-3cc2-0f8e-a63cb4e1d4c4. Another command line based tool that is free is PhotoRec.
As for the report; it drew me in as yours usually do with the detail and illustrative photos, I can almost smell the heat and dust.
Rugged country but a great looking hiking area. Also love that you pointed out some of the hazards of hiking with insects and animals, be it nude or clothed they are a hazard and one should always be aware. Beautiful foliage pics.
