Continuing with the JMT trend for the month of November, I bring you this one:

It’s a high snow year in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Two brothers, Jimmy & Michael, attempt the entire length of the John Muir Trail starting from Whitney Portal and ending in Happy Isles Yosemite Valley. How will they fare?
The Golden Ticket: Backpacking the John Muir Trail
From the Happy Isles Trailhead in Yosemite Valley to the windswept summit of Mt. Whitney is America’s premier middle distance hiking trail. Come along with us as we backpack the 221 mile John Muir Trail, including the most famous hike in Yosemite, the Cables Route on Half Dome.
Filmed on location during the summer of 2016.
Ryan Newburn, Tyler Lee, and Bryce Stroyek drop by and to talk about their upcoming eighty day backpacking trip across Europe. They range from a very experienced traveler to relatively inexperienced. They discuss their travel plans and what they expect to come across on their epic journey.
Ryan Newburn, also known as The Straw Hat Backpacker, became a traveler under very different circumstances than the rest of us. Ryan tells us what led him to backpacking across Japan and eventually through New Zealand. He also discusses his future expeditions, and how he met his expedition partners.
