Thank you again for rushing our last Expedition build. This was a needed addition to our Bearikade arsenal due to an increase in attendance to our last two backpacking trips over the last few weeks – Treasure Lakes and The Palisade Lakes – in the Eastern Sierra.
The Treasure Lakes outing was a first-time backpack fishing trip for our daughter, Keira, who did manage to be the only one to catch anything .. and a California Golden Trout at that .. and on the first day of fishing. The Palisades trip was also a success when it came to family time in the mountains, but not from a fishing perspective. Both trips gave us epic views and memories to last a lifetime.
