Although it's all American Trails I do enjoy darwinonthetrail, some good gear reviews and cooking ideas. Plus some great scenery.

Not sure if it's just me but only his last few videos seem to show up and anything older than a month seems to no longer exist  :(

There are two channels I watch regularly, both coincidentally made by female walkers. In both cases the videos focus on the walking rather than equipment. I am not a fan of kit reviews at all.
The first is by the infectiously enthusiastic Abbie Barnes. I know that there are many on this forum who also watch her videos. I particularly like her National Trail reports.
The second is by an American lady called Jessica Mills whose channel is called "Homemade Wanderlust". She has produced some stunning videos on the big three US Trails which she originally released as weekly reports. She has also condensed the AT and PCT into single hour long presentations. She only finished the CDT a couple of weeks ago so it will be a while before a condensed summary of this appears. I do post videos on Youtube myself and this channel is what I would like to aspire to.

I find 2 Feet Forward make excellent videos on You Tube and well worth a watch.
Touching from a distance, further all the time.

Yeh that homemade wanderlust is good. Bare in mind she mostly seems to be walking decent trails in nice weather so she will recommend gear which isn't appropriate over here, eg trail runners instead of waterproof boots.


And another vote for Abbie Barnes. Tough girl and always smiling.


Unlike a lot of YouTubers nowdays they don't use tits and ass or contraversy and debate to sell their vids

This is really good for anyone thinking of doing the Kungsleden Trail. It is an hour long. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JmtE_5ZTwo


 Another one for walking Scandinavia is Heini Hefti he's done lots of video all over Sweden and Norway. The best thing about him is he doesn't do ANY walking along talking to camera, in fact there's no dialogue at all.

Reinforcing what others have said Homemade Wanderlust and Abbie Barnes are both very good. Neither get too bogged down in reviewing gear although Jessica on HW does do specials on the gear she used on the three big US trails and elsewhere. They're quite good too.


My pennyworth - Blethering Ben - mostly day walks but very enjoyable.
