  3. No you on September 16, 2019 at 7:40 pm

    one thing that i’ve been wanting to ask thru hikers is how the heck they charge their headphones and stuff….i get you can bring a portable battery but with a phone, go pro, headphones…wouldnt it drain quick? or are you back in town a lot throughout the trail? looking to do it hopefully in the next two years on summer break

  4. Nikki S on September 16, 2019 at 7:40 pm

    I know that you are way farther along right now, but it’s so nice to see how happy you are in this video. The delight is contagious!

  5. WingMan Hoy on September 16, 2019 at 7:42 pm

  8. Gail Vollmer on September 16, 2019 at 7:45 pm

    So great to see you finally out on the trail. Looking forward to following your hike. Good Luck to you!

  9. foxsable on September 16, 2019 at 7:46 pm

    Did we find out what mountain was the buttkicker? I’m guessing it was Sassafras?

  10. Seth Dombach on September 16, 2019 at 7:49 pm

    Good luck Jason!

  11. NothingButHistory on September 16, 2019 at 7:49 pm

    I select one person each year to follow and I usually come in late. I do not place comments on a video I do not watch 100% . My next comment will be (following) so you will know I am following. Good luck and this old guy wishes I had chosen hiking rather than cross country bicycling but it is what it is and I am now seeing adventures through other eyes. Good Luck Sir 🙂

  12. speedtrapp28 on September 16, 2019 at 7:51 pm

    I will be following!!

  13. Michael Burgess on September 16, 2019 at 7:51 pm

    Feb 23 and there’s 266 people who started before you?! That’s crazy. Have a great hike. I hope to see you out west some time.

  14. Def Tones on September 16, 2019 at 7:52 pm

    Overly dramatic intro for sure

  19. Jeff Hall of StatusDecalsUSA on September 16, 2019 at 7:58 pm

  29. Dixie Shuffler on September 16, 2019 at 8:09 pm

    Can’t wait to follow your journey bud, stay safe, and take it all in. Love the vids

  30. Backpacking With Jason on September 16, 2019 at 8:10 pm

    Love the Schill brothers parody. 😂🤣😂. I got it. First night and it’s raining. That’s the AT. Awesome start to your journey

  31. Warren Davidson on September 16, 2019 at 8:11 pm

    I loving your videos already you have a smile on your face and a spring in your step or was that a "springer" in your step. Take Care, Be Careful, Don’t push too hard.

  32. Jeremiah Stringer Hikes on September 16, 2019 at 8:12 pm

    I can see the euphoria you are having realizing that you will get to hike for months! So excited to watch the journey, man!

  33. Brian Samonas on September 16, 2019 at 8:13 pm

    That’s frickin awesome

  34. GoSutto on September 16, 2019 at 8:18 pm

    Am I the only one coming back to watch this on July 3, 2019?

  35. Philippe Hamel on September 16, 2019 at 8:18 pm

    Never hit subscribe that fast in my life. Best of luck on your journey!

  36. Outdoor Adventures on September 16, 2019 at 8:20 pm

    Just a note about the intro. This will be the only video it plays on. The other videos have a very short version. C’mon did you guys really think I would make you watch that every video 😂

  37. Kristen Hachtmann on September 16, 2019 at 8:20 pm

    Can’t wait to watch you crush the AT!!!!

  38. Guate Traveling on September 16, 2019 at 8:20 pm

    "Holy crap it’s just … beautiful"

  39. RMS on September 16, 2019 at 8:20 pm

    What an adventure ! Subscribed !

  40. Troy Taylor on September 16, 2019 at 8:21 pm

    Hurray! 2 days in the books and looking awesome.

  41. swatsullivan on September 16, 2019 at 8:22 pm

    Really well done! Looking forward to catching up on your next 2 vids and continuing to follow along. Happy hiking!!

  42. Laggin' Wagon on September 16, 2019 at 8:24 pm

    Hell yeah man! You finally got started on the AT thru hike! Super stoked and proud of you, livin’ the dream!
    I can only imagine how wonderful of a freeing feeling it is to know you’ve got a few months of nothing but hiking and camping! That’s so epic!
    I’ve been wanting to do a thru hike on the AT for about a decade, since I first heard of it, and one day I definitely will! Until then I’ll be enjoying your vids and living vicariously through you! Cheers!

  43. tidesox28 on September 16, 2019 at 8:27 pm

    That guy, Dwayne, seems like a great guy.

  44. JoAnn Hempen on September 16, 2019 at 8:30 pm

    I just found your channel while looking for videos on hiking the AT Trail! #EmbracetheSuck
    loved & Subbed!

  45. Dale Trayner on September 16, 2019 at 8:31 pm

    Glad to hear this 🙂 I clicked off at 29 seconds annoyed first off with the loud volume i had to quickly find volume button…then the actual intro. I seldom subscribe and follow anyone with more than a 10-15 second into. Now I will go back and watch your video 🙂

  46. Allen Martin on September 16, 2019 at 8:34 pm

    You look changed already. This makes me want to do a thru hike now

  47. Leslie Gray on September 16, 2019 at 8:34 pm

    Your enthusiasm is contagious! I have yet to make the time for my hike… I’m still too busy trying to get settled..

  48. Monkey N Around on September 16, 2019 at 8:34 pm

    Awesome video. I had to subscribe to follow this journey.

  49. Bea, Honey dog and me on September 16, 2019 at 8:36 pm

    Fun. I’m going back through from the beginning and watching your journey. Such a difference I can see, just from who you were in this video to who you are now. Amazing. God bless you, Frozen. I mean that.

  50. Luke Pearsall on September 16, 2019 at 8:38 pm

    Really enjoy the content you are putting out, but hearing you mention every time someone recognizes you or follows you when you run into them seems slightly egotistical. I know this is your time to shine, so I’m not hating on it, but it definitely comes off a little like “look at me!”. All that being said, Travel well brother. Please take my critique only as a critique, it’s your channel and your work, those are just my two cents.
