How to Waterproof your Sleeping Bag
 
04:13
Here's a little tip on how to waterproof your sleeping bag. The only other thing in my pack that needs to be dry is my clothes and sleeping mat. These can just go in a small drysil bag. Everything else... doesn't matter if it gets wet (eg. food is in ziploc bags, first aid kit is in plastic containers, etc). Obviously, if I'm going canyoning and going to be swimming with my pack or doing a pack-float, I'll use an all in one liner bag. This will help with floatation as it will hold more air. Checkout the blog for heaps more tips! www.lotsafreshair.com

How to find Latitude Longitude from Topographic Map
 
03:11
Generally speaking, when navigating from a map in Hiking, you use a topographic map and work from 8 digit Grid References. I generally use a 1:25,000 map where available. However, sometimes it may be necessary to use Latitude Longitude Co-ordinates, for example in an emergency you may need to quote this to rescue organisations. Here's how to read the Lat Long from a Toppo map. Subscribe to the blog at: http://lotsafreshair.com

Adventures with Altitude Sickness
 
03:48
I did the Huayhuash circuit in Peru in 2012. This was the highest altitude I've ever been to in my life (5000m). I live at sea level in Australia, where our highest mountain is only 2228m. This was the first time in my life I've felt the affects of having less oxygen, especially whilst exercising. Basically, I felt pretty crap - most of the time, with one particular day when I really just wanted to stop, sleep, be left behind - recognised by some as the symptom called, 'the *uck it factor'. You just can't be arsed to do anything and want to be left alone in your own personal little world of pain.

Gold Coast Hinterland Great Walk - Day 1

If you think that Australia's Gold Coast is all about glitzy sky scraper hotels, lining beaches, casinos and shopping... then I've got great news for you! The Gold Coast Hinterland Great Walk is a lush 3 day walk stretching 54kms from O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat in Lamington National Park to Springbrook National Park, via Binna Burra Rainforest Lodge. I hitted the track (courtesy of Gold Coast Tourism, O'Reillys Rainforest Retreat and BinnaBurra Lodge) with my good buddy Jen P Pen and fulfilled a dream for 2017 by doing more walks in QLD.

How To Convert Easton Kilo 2P Tent to Fly Only
 
02:41
http://lotsafreshair.com. If you're wanting to keep things lightweight in your backpack, one of the ways is to make your shelter a fly-only or single skin tent. There are several good ones that you can buy that way, or make your own. I already own a 1 kilo tent, but I thought I could make it even lighter. It was pretty fiddly and took longer than I thought, but you might want to give this a go. WARNING: I snapped one of the poles trying to do this that needed to be replaced, so it's important that you get the distance between the two cross-over eyelets correct... otherwise it will snap!

How to Light a Fire
 
07:13
If you're going to cook over a fire in the wilderness, it's good to learn how to build one that is easy to put out, control and ultimately - return the ground to how it looked before. Therefore, you'll find no 'fairy rings' of stones around my cooking fires! If you want to tread super lightly, you should probably opt for cooking on fuel stoves and of course, always check that there's not a total fire ban in place before using either a stove or starting a cooking fire.
