He provided a recap at the end of the video. He doesn't talk a lot while he is hiking.

(Patagonia, etc.).
Yes previewing a trail ahead of time can be really helpful. I always had a this one particular waterfall hike on my list of trails to explore, but luckily watched a video and saw that while the waterfall was beautiful the trail itself was not really doable with a dog, because it required repelling down a rope and that is not a hike I would enjoy. It saved a lot of time and energy, plus in that video I learned of a different trail that sounded so much better nearby.

As for faraway places, yes I just discovered a couple beautiful hiking trails in Europe that look amazing because of hiking videos; one is Tour De Mont Blanc.

She is a lot of fun to watch. Cool thing about her channel is that I started watching her from about her eighth video. Usually I don't find a new hiking channel, until they have hundreds of videos, and probably a couple of thru hikes behind them. So I'm forever trying to catch up on their old videos. YouTube seems to be kind to Meandering Megan and they are really recommending her videos a lot. Which is lucky.

I guess not. But he can talk to the camera. He does update videos from his room, just talking about his plans. I know what you mean though. On YouTube, not just for hiking channels, I do prefer vlog style videos. People who just film a days video, do some basic editing, upload the video, and prepare for the next days video. You get to see so much more video that way.

But there is a big demand for that type of cinematography video. Kraig Adams has over a half a million subscribers. The other vlog channels I posted, barely have a thousand subscribers. On the other hand. there are video makers on the other end of the spectrum, who carry the talking to the extreme. They like to keep the camera focussed on themselves while they hike, and just talk, and talk, and talk. Pretty soon, I'm like okay enough. Lets see some scenery. LOL. 50% talking 50% scenery seems to be the best balance.

I agree that a balance between talking and scenery is best. I've been fortunate in that the ones I watch generally aren't overly chatty.

I have found a different annoyance though. There is one hiker on YT who roughs it when he goes hiking. He loves to go in the dead of winter and then has to go scavenging wood, build his own lean-to, start a fire from scratch, and so forth. Instead of it being an enjoyable experience for me to watch, it's taxing. He's so into challenging nature and conquering the elements that he doesn't sit back and enjoy nature in its the beauty and richness. He's pretty popular; had several thousand subs the last time I watched him about 4 months ago.

If I remember correctly, it's Joe something or other. His name is Joe and looks to be in his early 30's. Very thin, wiry, and his pocket knife is a machete. His videos are in the vein of Man vs. Nature, in my opinion.

I think the only reason he doesn't actually hunt, catch, or trap his own food while out hiking and camping is
because he has a very sensitive stomach. He admitted he has issues eating in one of the videos I watched.

Joe Robinet maybe? His channel looks interesting. I'll check it out. Thanks.

Yes, that's him. I remembered his last name earlier today while I was working. I come here and see that you've already found him. I'm interested to hear your take on him.
