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 !!

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.

Malibu Hike

Last week I went to Malibu for a hike. And I have to say this is a great hiking place to getaway from a hectic day. My friend and I went for 10 miles forth and back on this hiking trail. The trail wasn’t that steep, and we stop at a small house on the top of the trail. Funny thing there was a nice restroom there, and it has a tissue roll too. -_-

My friend called this an Eagle Rock. And there’s not much I can say about it since by that time I kept starring at it, and speechless to saw that huge rock from a distance. And when we got up there we took a break and we had our lunch; however, we had a great panorama scene too from the top of that huge rock. Word has lost it means.

Well a few people that I met up there, they came from NYC and they told me they came to California because they love to hike, and on the other side it has a pretty beautiful scene. And I have to say that I agree with them. The hiking place around California is quite outstanding. But one thing that I don’t like from all the hiking place around California is the weather. No matter how beautiful the scene and the trail itself, I’m not suggesting you guys to go hike during summer. It’s like you walking and cooking at the same time.

DEFCON Vans Collection

All Camo sneakers that I’ve seen before, this is by far the best military look alike sneakers that I’ve ever seen. Since I’m a nike fan, all I can say that I’m blinded by DEFCON Group that already made these happened. Word has lost it means. And yet it’s not a perfect set if you don’t wear them with this comfortable socks. It’s made by Ziv Tac Industries, Tactical By Nature. Dead center of jakarta, and the finest quality of tactical gear that you’ll ever know. However, I just found out that a good friend of mine collected these babies too. Without any hesitation, I would like to share these DEFCON Vans Collection with you guys.
