Late autumn hike in Czech Republic
« on: November 13, 2018, 12:28:24 PM »
Hi, finally I had the chance to go out again. Two friends from Holland came over and we headed over to the mountains to the north east of Czech Republic, bordering with Poland. It's a beautiful area, quite rocky here and there.
We slept in hammocks, breakfasts from the stoves, dinners from the fires, and most of the time we walked in misty clouds.

If you are bored and have almost 11 minutes to spare, check it out :-)

Thanks for including us on your hike! 
Nice country.  I always enjoy seeing sights from other parts of the World.  It's amazing...taken out of context, it looks a lot like some of MY woods. Things aren't so different where ever you go, discounting borders, rules and language.  I'm always in awe of multilingual folks (I flunked my 'language aptitude test' in the military...haha).
Looks like you had that beautiful trail pretty much to yourselves.
What are your fishing rules there? Seasons?

Thank you :-)
For fishing you need A, a license which states that you have the knowhow to fish, and B, a permit from the specific region where you want to fish.
Since we completely didn't count with fishing on this trip, we had nothing with us. But the lady in our group follows a course of primitive bushcraft skills, and making the fish hook from natural materials is one of them. We tried it with a worm, and with some other insects, but the fish where completely not interested.
No issue at all since we brought food anyway.
It was just a nice test.

Thanks Dabberty, nice video of the terrain you hiked in.  Truly a beautiful region of the Czech Republic.

Do you boil or treat the water on these hikes or just drink and cook with it as you wish?

That seemed like a very relaxing time with good friends.    Is it damp & foggy in that area most of the time.....it kind of looked like it might be?

By coincidence, I just bought a big wheel of French Brie a couple of days ago and I'm going to try some deer meat cooked the way you did in the video......it would be a new experience for me, so thanks for the idea! :cheers:

@ wsdstan, In my case i just drink it, they are all fresh streams coming from the hills / low mountains. But the other guy has a sensitive stomach, so he used the mini sawyer to filter his water.

@ wolfy, nah, it can be really nice weather as well there, we just where not lucky with the timing. Enjoy the meal :-)

Thanks Dabberty.  I was curious about the water quality as where I live one cannot drink the water in streams or lakes these days.
