For those who may be new to the Good Badger, I am a guy who is attempting to give new meaning to the term walking distance (i.e. hiking the Appalachian Trail).
Today’s post, on how to build your own tent, is the second edition of the “how to prepare for hiking the Appalachian Trail” video instructional series. You can watch the first video on physical endurance training here.
Although I am very attached to the tent constructed in the video below, I would be open to considering taking donations from a quality camping gear company. I demand that it be bear proof. Or at least water proof. Or at least have a zipper.
As long as I’ve signed myself up for this bout of insanity, I’m going to take the steps necessary to make sure that I’m a highly tuned hiking/camping machine before I ever step foot onto the Appalachian Trail.
The following video demonstrates how far I’ve already come.
