  1. I was humming to the tune without realizing what that song is. The most famous song of Korean folk music : A.ri.rang as bgm on Senior Hiker 77.😎 Happy trails!

  2. I'm ready to go again. Yes I untied the don't untie knot because it didn't seem to be in the right place but it all has to do with how high your trekking poles are set. I liked the addition of the piano music.

  3. Great video. That looks like an awesome place to hike. I have got to try hiking there. What city is this close to?

  4. Pretty good scramble for sure on day one.. I guess you could call that tree a big a** tree.. Look forward to part two!!

  5. What a great video! 😁 That poor Kardashian tree fell down! I almost died laughing though πŸ˜†πŸ€£. I made a video for people who untied their Lanshan knots too, Mr. Atypical. I'm gonna have to find all of my Lanshan videos. Lol. Man, this video pulled my heartstrings. I miss the PMT and my tramily. Great music too. Thanks, Senior! πŸ˜€πŸ‘
