  3. james coney on February 10, 2020 at 6:01 pm

    Drove skyline drive yesterday and regret not staying and camping. I will be back. Thanks for another great video guys.

  4. William Floyd on February 10, 2020 at 6:04 pm

    Had no idea we had a couple of Browncoats running this channel!!! And they got the words to the song right too. I LOVE Shenandoah. I was able to visit there a couple of years ago.

  5. John Buffaloe on February 10, 2020 at 6:07 pm

    Thoroughly enjoyable vicarious living video for this old fart. I wish the legs would let me still do this kind of thing, but even though I still think I’m 21, my 66 year old self knows better than to get somewhere the young guys would have to come drag me out of. Thanks for the views!

  6. Rash Panads on February 10, 2020 at 6:07 pm

    No open fires in Shenandoah?

  8. Nikki baby on February 10, 2020 at 6:10 pm

    Beautiful and love the way you guys film, compose and edit. very nice on the eyes and ears. Thanks guys, stay safe while making more beautiful vids

  9. silent dancer on February 10, 2020 at 6:14 pm

    Your videos are always top notch! Thanks for sharing! I can’t wait to start hiking again! Planning a trip to Shenandoah in June 2018 and I can’t wait. Being out in the wilderness is awesome!

  10. Andrew Hill on February 10, 2020 at 6:16 pm

    Is there no open fires in this national park?

  11. David Ben-Abraham on February 10, 2020 at 6:17 pm

    I love your videos. Very professionally done. All the best to you!

  12. Nwalerko on February 10, 2020 at 6:18 pm

    Bear spray on the east coast?

  13. Domi B. on February 10, 2020 at 6:22 pm

    is this… a real place on earth? cause it looks straight from heaven

  14. Florida Sasquatch on February 10, 2020 at 6:22 pm

    The best hiking videos I’ve seen are being put out by you guys. Outstanding work, and great audio!

  15. blurdreamer on February 10, 2020 at 6:23 pm

    9:35 isn’t it using lighter or matches is much more easy to light a fire?

  16. Isaac South on February 10, 2020 at 6:23 pm

    I accidentally clicked dislike and quickly changed it to like. I don’t know why anyone would dislike these videos. You inspired me to take my 4 year old son camping last night. We had a great time. Keep making videos!!

  17. Alexander Weaver on February 10, 2020 at 6:23 pm

    This is the third time I’ve watched this video. Should you ever return to Shenandoah NP, consider a cabin rental for your base then hike from there. One cabin, Doyles River cabin, is within fairly easy hiking distance from Loft Mountain campground…access to a store, showers, the AT and of course incredible vistas. The cabin is located in a picturesque spot just above the Doyles River loop and waterfall. The interior of the cabin has a wood burning stove, bunk beds and is equipped with some culinary ware. There is a small prep table as well. The stone porch is covered and a nice fireplace just outside the doorway. Of course there is fire wood galore but you may consider bringing in packaged logs as we did. A water source, a spring, is on the trail to the cabin. I slept one night on the porch leaving the snorers inside; and one of us slept in a hammock rigged across the porch (no tarp necessary). I loved watching this video again as you are all enjoyable to watch and to listen to great narratives.

  18. Sd Shovn on February 10, 2020 at 6:24 pm

    loved it

  19. Jessica Canfield on February 10, 2020 at 6:24 pm

    I just happened on this channel looking up survival in Virginia. This is really good

  20. TailEnd88 on February 10, 2020 at 6:25 pm

    Shenandoah was where I fell in love with hiking, when I did a portion of the AT with my dad and sisters. I think I was 12. So when you guys played those old clips in the credits I truly feel a kinship to you gents.

  21. John Bravo on February 10, 2020 at 6:26 pm

    Great great video…im tellin you theres something about asians and cameras..

  22. Beth VanCleave on February 10, 2020 at 6:26 pm

    I have to say guys, I love these older videos. You are more whimsical & educational in plant life rather than just rushing from point to point as you seem to do in the newer videos. I don’t see dates but I know you are much younger in this one. Still enjoying all of your videos.

  23. Jason Armintrout on February 10, 2020 at 6:29 pm

    Dang, great video guys. Loved it.

  24. W M on February 10, 2020 at 6:29 pm

    The music is marvelous.

  25. Sam Taylor on February 10, 2020 at 6:31 pm

    great video. glad i found your channel. new sub

  27. Greg Gibson on February 10, 2020 at 6:33 pm

    I was listening to one of the podcasts about favorite episodes and heard you guys remark that Shenandoah was among your least favorite. Lack of grand views was one of the reason’s given in comparison to some of the hikes out west, as well as some of the logistical frustrations. No doubt Shenandoah can’t compare to the views of Yosemite but there are far better hikes to do in Shenandoah than this one. Check out Old Rag Mountain or White Oak Canyon if you come back. Both are far more visually interesting. They are popular and can be crowded but probably no more so than anything you did in Yosemite. I’ve watched several of the episodes and as a professional photographer I really appreciate the effort that goes into the shot selection and production. The narration is well written and the fact that you do your own music is really quite impressive. You’ve set the bar way high for this type of programming. You should consider licensing your music as another revenue stream to support the channel.

  28. Bobbi Ann Pease on February 10, 2020 at 6:34 pm

    This is the first video of yours that I have watched, and I loved it! I had an internship at Shenandoah last summer and I miss being there pretty much every day, so thank you for taking me back home for an hour. I have also never explored this part of the park, but it is now on my list of things to see/do when I go back! These shots are amazing, everything is so green! And some of your conversations, or things that happened…like thinking of that one singer, or having a hand come out and help…just silly things like that remind me of my own adventures. I can’t wait to get back out there.

  29. Yong Yung Shin on February 10, 2020 at 6:36 pm

    That tiny pot of rice for 3 hungry campers?!

  30. zdenek marek on February 10, 2020 at 6:41 pm

    Hallo ! I have also been in the Shanandoah Valley region,very nice. Well done nice video.Be Blessed.

  31. syang1116 on February 10, 2020 at 6:41 pm

    haha~~~ biggest blunder

  32. Tony Straw on February 10, 2020 at 6:42 pm

    Love your videos, my favorite parts of them is when you guys get a beer, or the hot meals by the fire, your faces, pure bliss

  33. ZR on February 10, 2020 at 6:42 pm

    These videos are better than any TV or movies. Thank you, sirs!

  34. ajrob2888 on February 10, 2020 at 6:42 pm

    One of my favorite places to camp besides Pisgah Nat. Forrest, NC!!! Great video guys!
    PS Extra Kudos for singing the Serenity song! 😉

  35. kckrye on February 10, 2020 at 6:43 pm

    Its interesting, black locusts dont produce blossoms every year. Sometimes its every 3 to 5 years when you get a real good blossom season. Our honey bees will solely forage off of them until the blossoms are done. They usually last about 7 days and the honey you get from them is absolutely amazing. It’s a very light to translucent yellow hue with a thick, sweet, velvety texture that coats your tongue. It literally makes your tea smell like a floral bouquet.

  36. Minh Luu on February 10, 2020 at 6:44 pm

    I like the old footage at the end of the video.

  37. kckrye on February 10, 2020 at 6:46 pm

    Robbie, now that cold brew is "A Thing" I hope you know you gotta go 12 to 24 hours if using cold water for steeping coffee. LOL

  38. George P. Burdell on February 10, 2020 at 6:48 pm

    I’m a native Virginian, so of course I liked.

    I cannot visit Shenandoah enough. I love it in autumn, just after the little waterfalls freeze on the mountainsides.

    The notes about the flora are great.

    Well done!

  39. Iwasthewalrus on February 10, 2020 at 6:48 pm

    Can’t have fire in a national park? Freedom.

  40. NickB on February 10, 2020 at 6:49 pm

    i love how your soundtrack has a jrpg feel sometimes

  41. Will Hike For Food on February 10, 2020 at 6:50 pm

    Thank you for posting this! Very cool to see the area before we get there. We are hiking the AT section through Shenandoah in June. We created a channel to chronicle our journey. Would appreciate your support. 🙂

  42. Brian Opolis on February 10, 2020 at 6:51 pm

    How could this video have any thumbs-downs? Guys, you seriously have captured something incredible with this video. I live by SNP and hike it year-round. I’m obsessed, and my friends who don’t hike don’t really understand why. Maybe when I share this video with them they’ll finally get it. Thanks for doing what you do! Keep it up!!!! By the way I blog about hiking sometimes. I’m brianopolis on Instagram and my hiking blogs are and

  43. Eman WacaGator on February 10, 2020 at 6:52 pm

    Extremely Professional Done…

  44. Marc Knight on February 10, 2020 at 6:52 pm

    Hmm, I see you guys are having problems. "Let’s leave at 2 pm, that should be enough time ""(ha,ha), for everyone to get ready". Try it on your own instead; as a solution to trying to find a camping spot in the dark.

  45. Sky Nguyen on February 10, 2020 at 6:52 pm

    One of my favorites. Love the green color of trees after the rain. Nice job !

  46. little kitty on February 10, 2020 at 6:52 pm

    This video is incredibly well filmed, I haven’t seen a lot like it

  47. Lydia Garner on February 10, 2020 at 6:52 pm

    Thank you!

  48. Marc Knight on February 10, 2020 at 6:54 pm

    I mean, if you hike, you’re not afraid of the outdoors

  49. CøExÏ$t on February 10, 2020 at 6:55 pm

    Are ticks a major problem during summer/fall?

  50. WALDO on February 10, 2020 at 6:58 pm

    I’ve watched this legit 15 times and it makes me wanna go back with my group more and more
