I have used the High Sierra Pathway 70L on one additional backpacking trip, a 40 mile trip covering the length of the Black Creek Wilderness. The pack has performed admirably and continues to remain fairly durable. Read on for the rest of my thoughts.

I have used the High Sierra Pathway 70 backpack on a couple of backpacking trips and on training hikes over the past few months. The pack’s performance has been good. The fit of the pack has been easy to dial in, and thus far I have had no durability issues with the material, buckles, zippers or straps. It is a traditionally designed internal frame pack and I have felt comfortable with the layout and my ability to store and access my gear. My only nitpick at this point is that it is a hot pack that does not allow for much air flow on contact points like my back, shoulders and hips. Read on for my full update!
I ran the gamut of emotions for this review: amazing, happy, satisfied, and sad. The beef jerky from Country Archer has been used backpacking in Mississippi, as a snack during Mardi Gras Parades, and as refueling after running a 50k race in Mississippi. The product is amazing and left me happy and satisfied, but sad when I went on my latest backpacking trip in the Black Creek Wilderness and realized all I had left was a couple of the Herb Citrus meat bars and had eaten the rest of the jerky.

I recently moved to New Orleans from Alaska and I have taken to exploring the outdoor offerings found in the South Eastern United States. For the Columbus Weekend Holiday in October of 2016 I decided to explore the Tuxachanie Trail in the De Soto National Forest with my daughter. The Tuxachanie Trail runs from highway 49 to P.O.W. Lake for a total distance of 12 miles one way. For my trip, we camped at Airey Lake about 5 miles down the trail from Highway 49 on the first night and backpacked 7 miles or so to P.O.W. Lake for an overnight before retracing our steps to Airey Lake. Read my full review on the trail here.
