Ultralight Hiking


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Clint “Lint” Bunting came to backpacking late in life, but once he took to it he went “all in”. He has hiked over 14,000 miles, including all of the big American Thru hikes: the Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, Ice Age Trail and the Continental divide Trail, some of them twice! What’s more, he now hikes for weeks at a time with an 8-pound pack, significantly less than the 40-50 pounds many backpackers typically carry.

First Broadcast: 2012
Producer: Ed Jahn
Videographer/Editor: Todd Sonflieth
