4.6 mile hilly hike today. Still on vacation. Will add weights to the regimen when I get home.


It's pronounced LOO-POLD, damn it!

I hit the 600 mile last week. Temperature is hovering in the high 90's so I have to go out early. Still sweating like a pig.

Got out of the Sierra’s yesterday. Great trip through some great country- 90-ish miles and a $hit ton of gain/loss! Swimming in the ocean and flying home tomorrow.

Been riding my bike about 5 days/week, finally clocked it at a 16 mile loop.

First time posting in this thread for me. I've been doing 5BX nearly everyday for the past two years, after not really being active unless hunting. I'm middle age, but am using the charts in 5BX for flying crew half my age. If I can do it, anyone can.

This spring I started going back to the gym. And this summer I started weighted pack training. I do some sort of physical activity six days per week and take one day off completely.

Yesterday I did kettlebell swing, one arm; kettlebell shoulder press; barbell bent row; goblet squat; simulated sled push on treadmill (new favorite); 30 minutes on stationary bike at low heart rate.

Today is supposed to be weighted pack day, but man I am sore from yesterday!

Did a couple of training/scouting hikes this weekend. I'd post the mileage and elevation but not right after Mt posted his.

Found the spot we'll be going back to in September for elk.

Today was my rest day. Yesterday I just walked the dog for a total of roughly seven miles in two sessions.

Mt, Any recommendations for a bear cannister? Bears aren't a big problem and it's not required but I'm thinking about hiking in to make a food stash pre-season.

So I'd be looking for the lightest possible. Thanks in advance.

I used a Bearvault 500- it holds a weeks worth of food w/ a little finagling. It weighs 2.5 lbs. Bearikade makes a carbon fiber one (Blazer) at roughly the same volume (700-ish cubic inches) and weighs 2 lbs even.

The Blazer is $350 vs $85 for the BearVault, not sure that's worth the price difference.

They both come in various sizes too, so you can pick the right one for the amount of food you want to haul.

Thanks. I was looking at the 11 liter BV500, glad to hear you like it.

I am at 660 miles for the year, weather hotter than hell, has made me lazy for a few weeks, but I still have a 3 mile per day average with somewhere around 500 feet elevation. Screwed up my wrist (in a brace now ) so weights are out of the question. Doing well for my age, closing in on 77 now and watch my cookie and ice cream intake as best as I can. It seems like I am nursing some injury all of the time and it makes me irritable (at least my wife thinks so) and not as focused as I should be. Have elk tags in two states and looking forward to fall.
