Gear Preview: The Golden Bear Sierra 2 Backpacking Tent
 
17:42
I found this little gem at Big 5 Sporting goods here in Utah. It's a 2-person backpacking tent that weighs just 2.5 pounds. You won't believe the deal I got, and I'm really looking forward to putting it to use! UPDATE AUGUST 2017: While testing this tent, I found that failed spectacularly: condensation was bad, it leaked and collapsed on me during a rain storm. The idea is there, but I suggest spending a bit more on the Eureka Spitfire. You get what you pay for, guys. Here is the video showing what happened on an overnighter... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S9f6wKzkQuc

Unboxing, setup, and preview: The Eureka Spitfire Tent
 
11:58
In this episode, I'm unboxing, setting up, and previewing the Eureka Spitfire tent. This is an upgrade for me from the Eureka Solitaire, which was more of a bivy/tent and didn't allow room for sitting up inside of it. Also, the Spitfire has a decent vestibule for storing gear, which is a plus. My sons Murphy, Dylan and Jude help out here, and Bob, my Saint Bernard, was along for moral support. Here are the specs from the Eureka Website: Set up is fast and easy with post and grommet corner attachments and clips to attach the tent body to the Spitfire 1 frame. 2 pole hoop tent with vestibule 9 mm DAC Featherlite 7000 series aluminum frame Post and grommet corner attachments make set up of the Spitfire 1 easy Only 2 stakes required to secure Spitfire 1 tent body; clips attach tent body to frame Large side entry door for easy access 4 storm guyouts on fly Sizeable mesh panels provide generous air flow in the Spitfire 1 Poke-out vent in fly with zippered access in mesh roof cloth Inside storage pocket holds essentials Also available in a 2 person model!

Gear Preview: The Luci EMRG inflatable solar lantern from MPOWERD

Today I'm previewing the Luci EMRG inflatable solar lantern from MPOWERD. It's a 4-LED, 4-function completely solar powered lantern. It weighs almost nothing and holds 95% of its charge on the shelf per month that it's not in use. I have to say, for a preview, I'm really impressed. I can't wait to use it out on the trail!

Backpacking the Uintas...Return to Wall Lake: Dylan and Jude's first backpacking trip!
 
01:15:18
In this overnight adventure, I took my sons Dylan (7) and Jude (6) on their first-ever overnight backpacking trip. We returned to the High Uintas of Utah where the plan was to hike the Crystal Lake Trail. However, that trail was closed due to the Box Canyon Fire. So, we headed to Wall Lake where I did a solo trip last month. We had a lot of fun and I really enjoyed having my two little guys with me.

In this Thrift Store Thursday episode of Utah Outdoor Adventures with Utah Steve, I came across a small tent that I was able to land for $10. It's a quaint little tent and was in almost new condition. The tent is made for kids, but is lightweight and could easily pass for an inexpensive backpacking tent.

Gear Review Wednesday: The Eureka Solitaire Bivy/Tent
 
11:36
In this episode of Utah Outdoor Adventures with Steven Grames, I'm doing an in-field review of the Eureka Solitaire bivy/tent. The segments were filmed on Antelope Island in the Great Salt Lake. It was my first time using it, and here I'll give you some of my first impressions of this awesome and affordable tent. By the way, this is a solo tent that I bought for backpacking, but I shared it with my 6-year-old son, Dylan. It was a tight squeeze!

In this episode of Utah Outdoor Adventures with Steven Grames, three of my boys and I took a short hike along the Birdsong Trail at the mouth of Ogden Canyon. We didn't see (or hear) many birds, but there was a dead lizard and an old bicycle rim, so that was pretty exciting. It was a fast, easy hike that even my 4 and 6-year-old could do (1 mile out and back). It's a pretty hike with some nice views of Ogden down below.

Gear Review: The Xersion Packable Down Jacket (RE-UPLOAD)
 
08:05
Okay, I fixed a couple of issues with this video from the first time I uploaded it. The jacket weighs .75 of a pound, not .75 of an ounce. Also, I reffirmed here that this is a true down jacket and is NOT synthetic as one commenter stated. I also provided proof of this. If you're interested in this very warm, very affordable jacket, it has unfortunately been pulled from the JCPenney website and replaced with a synthetic version that also includes a zipper on the front. They no longer carry the down version, but you might be able to find something similar in their clearance section. I hope this clears things up!

IN this episode, I decided to take an MRE that I had on hand and repackage it according to what I was actually going to take with me on a hike, as well as to reduce its overall weight. It turned out pretty well, and I took it with me on a hike the next day. I didn't use everything in the MRE, as you'll see, nor did I have to worry about where to put all of the packaging garbage while on the trail. Also, I taste-tested a portion of the meal in this video.
