The Hike

Last week I went hike to this place called cucamonga peak. The view was very nice. But something that you have to sacrifice was your energy. This is not an easy hike, the trail was steep and the altitude was around 2500-4000 if I’m not mistaken. I brought my 3L hydration bladder, and rock on with my salomon gtx 3d. The trail was 12 miles round trip. And it took 7 hours to finish the hike round trip. Luckily I got a chance to snap some footage of our hike to Cucamonga Peak.

Yosemite Part 2

Nowadays I’m into with editing video in post production. It’s quite fun and exercise my skill too. And the only problem that I have to deal with the apps that I used is taking a lot of memory from the RAM itself and it took me 2-5 hours to publish the video. But the result is way much better after i applied stabilizer mode in this video. The video was taken in Yosemite. What a great view and never tired if I can be here again.

Enjoy the video, and if you have input or question, feel free to ask me. Cheers !!

Presidents Day 2015

This is the first trip that I’ve had for a long time. Me and my friends, we stayed at the mammoth lake cabin. It has a tremendous view, and a great hospitality from the place where we stayed. Met nice people, and overall it was a pretty good horizon and vibe. Worth of shot if you’re thinking about a getaway from Los Angeles. We stayed there for 3 nights and me personally, it was the best time that I’ve had since a year ago. Although it was a long weekend, I had a wonderful valentines day with a beautiful girl that I’ve met earlier.

the good part about this trip, that I’m able to carry my pack during the traveling. It wasn’t too shabby at all. I had this pack for 2 weeks already and it brings me joy for me since I only carried one pack for this trip, I’m able to make it out of the most. The pack itself was designed by Mystery Ranch. Been using their pack for over 4 Years, and all their packs work like a charm for 1 day trip, 3 days trip, and for urban purpose which it can be use inside the city.

Salomon GTX Xa Pro Ultra 2 Trail

Christmas present from someone is here. If I may ask, do you care about what shoes, and what kind of shoes that you’re going to use for hike? Maybe some of you and many people we’ve seen don’t matter with using running shoes for hike. I’m never thought that I’ll be having a hiking shoes till I read some article about Salomon GTX. So what’s the good about this shoes?

This is my first time that I’m having Salomon GTX Xa Pro Ultra 2 Trail. At first I thought it’s just gonna be the same shoes like running shoes, such as Nike Free Run Series. Well, sadly it’s far beyond from my expectation. This shoes has a great sole for your feet to walk long hours forth and back. And it has front thick sole that is ready to cover your toes. The inner sole, the moment when you’re standing and walking, this shoes has a comfort padding that enough to protect the surface of your feet.

Nevertheless, the reason why I’m picking Salomon is because Salomon is trusted by TIER 1 Operators from it’s quality, and the durability. However, when I had this thought about getting this shoes, I’m thinking why I wanna get this shoes since I can get another Nike shoes to run, and maybe for a short hike. But I decided to get this shoes for my hiking gear. On the other hand, when I’m putting this shoes on, I can feel the click that both my feet loves this shoes. How comfortable the inner sole that is able to make you walk more further as you can imagine, and the front sole that’s made to protect your feet toes. And also, it’s light and it has a simple shoes knit system that allow you to adjust the shoes knit to be loose or tight by pulling or pushing the knit pin of the shoes.
