4 Days Tenting, Looking out & Buying for Airplane Atomize in Alaska’s Rainforest
Lugan Nate here with the AL Boys YouTube channel and for the next 4 days we're exploring Alaska's Frozen rainforests we're camping in freezing temperatures hunting for our food discovering crashed military planes flying over glaciers and having a great time.
They turn our homes into lashes we fled out the back door we ran towards the city city still not all this conrete up been and causing the outskirts where we sit sleeping the back seat.
Oh all right guys welcome to Goose Davis Alaska this is a small community at the mouth of Glacier Bay National Park and about a 20-minute flight west of Juno and like most places in Alaska the only way you can get in and out of this community is by plane or boat there's no.
Roads out side of this community just slightly over 600 people live here in gust Davis Davis Davis Davis okay it's not gust Davis it's gust Davis I'm going to make that mistake a lot in this video oh looks like we got a little place to eat let's go get some lunch all right go on what did you guys that's a that's a.
Big wolf this restaurant is owned and operated by the school and kids come here for Class Credit to learn work skills and stuff all right we actually got to meet the principal of the school and half the high school students they were all really.
Nice W in life I think this might be the town supermarket it's nice being in places where you don't need to lock everything up this is the only Market in town so everyone gets their groceries from here sumers SA six bucks for 1 gallon of milk it's not bad it's a good price Nathan lost one of.
His gloves in the airport so we got to go get a new pair of gloves here try try your hand in you like those mhm all right we get those this is for our cooking stove uhhuh well we got lunch camping fuel snacks I think it's time to go find a campsite oh there's some ducks down in the river yeah we're definitely going.
Duck hunting later on in the summertime a lot of tourists come here to fish for salmon or to go to the national park but once the fall Hits it gets so quiet this is the ferry terminal this is how everyone gets their cars and a lot of their big.
Supplies I can see a whole bunch of Canadian geese right over there across the way there we go what is wrong with that oh that is destroyed my Goose call completely fell apart in the bag that's what I get for buying a cheap Goose call going to try riding across this sand a.
Little bit see this is why we brought the fat bikes there's a whole bunch of sucks oh I must have said something to offend him tell you what this is a lovely spot think you want to camp here Nate yeah I think Nate's ready to camp.
We just got finished setting up the tent and I heard some Canadian geese just over here I brought some absolute artillery shells these are 3 and 1/2 inch double bees oh just jumped two mards off this River over here in the grass Nathan quick here comes some Canadian.
Keys I've already shot twice and missed twice so I'm on a hot streak oh my all right well it is cold and I've got a hungry little boy I think it's time to get some dinner made you'll hop into your bag get warmed up you got it I have this little tripod I used to prop my camera up so I can film and the leg fell.
Off somewhere oh that is going to make filming very challenging going try sticking my camera in Nathan's boot look at that big moon that's rising up over the horizon even though it's bitterly cold it's still gorgeous do not spill it in the in the tent you.
Got that that is hard to beat isn't that that is so good oh it is so cold out here every everything's icing up look at all the frost on this bag weather forecast said the low was going to be in the 30s I don't think that was the truth do you like a hot water.
Bottle yes oh I think it's time to get into this bed it's cold yeah hey bud are you warm yeah you want to watch a movie or something yeah we got a chocolate covered hazelnuts we're going to eat while we watch a movie well the sun's about to rise R and.
I'm going to go do some duck hunting but oh it is so cold everything is covered in Frost look at my bicycle oh look at that all right Nathan I'll be back all right guys the sun's just barely popping up and I'm going to sneak over to this River that's right by the tent we saw a bunch of ducks there.
Yesterday and I bet they're going to be back if I'm really quiet there we go that's a beautiful female M duck right there hey yeah Nathan Nathan look what I got you got dog nice look at.
That oh look at this I did a time lapse last night is what my GoPro looks like now all right I got to go ahead and clean this away from the campsite this bird is just covered in ice there we go two beautiful duck breasts the meat is this dark red color.
Because there's so little fat in it duck has about 25 % of the fat of domesticated chickens as a general rule wild meat has much less fat and is much lower in cholesterol than domestic meat well these will go really well with dinner tonight well we survived the night we shot a duck now it's time to make some breakfast Nathan you want.
Chocolate chip pancakes yeah another reason you heat up the water bottles and put them in your sleeping bag it's cuz if you don't your all your water will be ice in the morning it's a big pain in the butt to melt ice once it forms in a plastic bottle good yeah well since my tripod broke I have.
To lean my selfie stick up against this bench or I hold it between my legs it's always a challenge isn't it yeah sure there we go David you like this you get breakf and bed and get to watch some cartoons wait hey Nathan you got some chocolate on your your hand there wait that that's.
Chocolate right tell me it's chocolate tell me it's chocolate tell me it's chocolate Nathan well now that we got food in us I think we should get the bikes ready and go and explore the area a little bit more and among other things I hear that there's a large plane crash site nearby and I want to do a little hiking and see.
If we can't find it come on let's go do some exploring me and Nathan realized our butts are a little bit more sore than we thought yeah a pedal standing up it's just just do that for a while peaches peaches peaches Peach peaches you guys having a good day oh.
Yeah your principal uh flagged me down and asked me to speak in at career day you think I should do that 100% all right we met those high school kids and their principal while eating at the Fox's Den yesterday the principal talked me into doing a career day Zoom meeting so uh we're going to we're going to do that here in a few.
Weeks hell all right we're going to swing by the store and pick up some supplies not having my tripod is driving me crazy so I am determined to try to Jerry ring something let's see got a/4 in 20 3/4 bolt there we go oh hello okay okay now I need a plastic.
Lid thank you okay I'm going to build my tripod drill the hole with this thing we got a tripod again the tripod works doing good back there uhhuh good do you see a trail all right we're going to do a.
Little hike through the rainforest gust Davis is at the top of the Alaskan Panhandle and this whole part of Alaska is temperate rainforest look at this everything just gets covered in Moss to the ground bench oh look at this piece of the.
Airplane I see that's like a piece of some rubber right there well let's see if we can find the rest of the plane this crazy look at all the wires in here I think that's the part of the engine right there here's one of the tires there you go there's another chunk.
Of engine right there this is the wreckage of a DC3 it's a passenger cargo plane it crashed in 1957 while it was trying to take off from the gustus airport it's a pretty good siiz twin engine plane this DC3 was used by the US military you can see where it says Air National Guard across the.
Top oh you think I should yeah just watch out for the sharp bits look at this I don't think this plan went down maybe you can see the Air Force symbol really good over.
Here says Pennsylvania Air National Guard right there across the top you hungry Nathan I think that means we need to get going and go get some lunch well I've got a little boy whose bottom needs a bench and his stomach needs a burger I'm so hungry there you.
Go look at this you're bottom this is just a really warm and friendly community so much so in fact we just got invited to a Halloween party oh marshmallow here stop that stomach rumbling the child will hear you Gabe was definitely.
Not gone you liking that more good we better get you to bed though okay all right all right you snuggle in my bag while I go and get everything warmed up okay there we go my tripod okay it was a bit cold last night and I want Nathan to go camping with me again so I got to take care of him so I am pulling out all the stops I've got a.
Ton of hand warmers here we are going to put them in this cloth bag here there you go ready for some reason oh there's some ice in my water okay I want it's time for some dinner how about some cranberry couscous and duck got dried cranberries and.
Couscous wa there's an earthquake going on right now that must have been a pretty good one first I thought I was just getting a little dizzy but then I was like nope nope the ground is shaking yeah that's Alaska for you.
Oh these duck breasts smell so good cranberry couscous and Mard duck breast nice Andy Nathan do you want some duck yeah here fresh duck is so good that so good that duck breast was better than any steak I've ever eaten that was so.
Good oh man that tasted fabulous need to go do the dishes now how you doing Nathan are you warm huh well it's late and it's cold I'm going to get in my sleeping bag and I will see you guys in the morning well good morning it's a lot warmer this morning notice that there isn't frost on.
Everything we had clouds come in last night and that keeps it from getting bitterly cold the coldest days are always the clear ones but uh I've got to hurry up and get some breakfast going we're going to fly into the national park this morning oh my bottom sore the duks and geese must have known.
We're leaving cuz they're just all over our campsite right now me and Nathan are headed to the airport and we're leaving GIS but we're not going straight back to Juno a charter is going to pick us up and we're going to take a sightseeing tour through Glacier Bay National Park which is supposed to be one of the most gorgeous.
National parks in the country okay it was touch and go but it looks like the Pilot's going to get our bikes onto that little Cessna I'm impressed you want to go in first hey I heard you want to leave this place.
Where we grew all this old time just put it all behind remember you and I would always find somewhere to hide when we were kids so we could see and hear the water run the river's going to cry when you're going where will you go won't you miss the on you know I'll be here hanging on.
