Luke tom nate and jake here with the outdoor boys youtube channel and today we're going to alaska yeah we are going to be in alaska for six weeks now i have a lot of family up in alaska so we visit frequently we've done videos up in alaska back in 2015.
2018 earlier this year in 2020 and we are going to do some stuff we have never done before survival camping on an island out in the ocean we're going to land an airplane on a glacier we're gonna catch salmon and remote rivers we're gonna go kayak fishing we're gonna.
Explore old military bunkers but first we've gotta get this family of five and eight pieces of luggage to the airport and fly on a plane for ten and a half hours oh all right guys.
um who is this masked man tommy are you glad to be back in alaska well we made it to my sister's house which is conveniently next to my parents house and we've got the kids fed and to bed and it is a beautiful saturday evening.
Here in alaska and we are going to take it easy and go to bed early because we have an intense and exciting six weeks ahead of us i'll see you guys in the morning look at this beautiful day now you guys ready to see cousins yeah all right.
Now gotta take your shoes off in alaskan houses you go to taiwan you should need to learn how to say did you guys have a good time with cousins yeah we had a great day going to church and hanging out with family and the kids got to play with cousins.
But it's bedtime now and poor jacob is having a hard time understanding why he has to go to bed when the sun's shining so much but i'll see you guys in the morning we are going hiking camping and fishing when i pick it up it's white and when i.
Kill it on my back oh all right guys you ready to go camping yeah here we are guys in portage alaska just on the other side of the mountain from whittier.
Surrounded by mountains and glaciers we're gonna head through this one lane tunnel and all the way under this mountain to the city of whittier and because it's only one lane there's a schedule for which direction of traffic goes at which times and occasionally they have trains through there too because there's a set.
Of railroad tracks right down the center whittier is a fascinating town it is very rainy and in the wintertime it gets a load of snow so much snow that if you leave your car parked outside during the winter time the snow will crush it like a monster truck but because of the snow.
And the scarcity of land it's just really expensive to build houses so most people here live in one apartment building up on the hill the last few trips to alaska we've come fishing here and if you hit it right when the pink salmon are running this place is.
Amazing look look there's one right there there's one a couple right there tommy look the salmon are jumping out of the water look at that i don't know if you guys can see it but there are so many salmon right there that it's black there's this massive school of them and they're just jumping out of the.
Water every once in a while look at that but these are pink salmon and they're really close to spawning so they've already started to turn colors so that's not the ideal fish to eat salmon tastes best when they're pure silver seeing some fish and hermit crabs and.
Stuff yeah i just saw her look here's some limpets you want to eat one yeah there you go we've got a lot of hiking to do today so we're going to just keep moving you okay nathan yeah that happened the first time all right guys we're here we are gonna.

If you have more than five people behind you on the highway you have to pull over brilliant law hey we're in seward alaska and any minute now a boat's going to take us off into the wilderness where we are going to explore and camp.
At an abandoned military base that's leaving us behind we gotta walk home we're all alone only way me and nate are getting back is with our own two feet how about we go explore a military base check out this bear den look in here yep that's black bear poop.

That's a grizzly bear you want to go see it you like that tom so this is the northwood lodge on the swetna river they do multi-day trips they do single day trips like what we're doing they even do self-guided trips if you want to save a little money there's a really nice little lodge here.

It's you know it's amazing all right guys well it is late i am sunburned and i'm gonna go to bed and i'll see you guys in the morning ah it's a beautiful morning and we are getting ready to go camping up until keaton all right guys.
We're here with phantom river charters and for a very reasonable price they will take you and drop you off various locations along the river and pick you up whenever you want and so we are going to camp all night and fish for uh silvers pings chums trout it's it's gonna be awesome.
And i think we might be eating some fresh salmon tonight here we go oh look at that look at all the salmon here thank you very much we'll see you tomorrow there goes our ride our connection to civilization now i.
Gotta find out where the boys ran off to you guys having fun hold it hold it he's taking line how's that nathan that's a monster that is a lovely silver look at this oh it's another beautiful silver oh my goodness.
It is on fire we have gotten two silvers in five minutes here walk over here walk to shore there we go buddy your first silver got one buddy oh i think you might have a dolly here that is a beauty hold him up there so teeth oh look at him fight.
Oh he was crazy high five that was a heck of a fight nate another beautiful dying bright silver what a wonderful place to fish let alone camp huh we got a heck of a night ahead of us well guys i'm gonna be eating barbecued.
Fresh salmon with corn on the cob but my boys are a bit more particular so nathan's got his favorite cup of noodle and tommy asked for steak so we got a little bit of everything for everyone ugh fresh alaskan salmon is one of those fish that's hard to screw up.
Hands down my favorite recipe is melted butter and brown sugar smothered all over a filet and grilled oh so good you go a slab of fresh grilled salmon and corn on the cob man oh that was so good i ate that entire fillet by myself.
If you're thinking of coming to alaska and you're on a budget the phantom river charter drop-off service should be number one on your list of things to do it's probably the best deal around for catching a salmon and if you're not confident enough to do this on your own what i would recommend is go with their charter.
Service their normal guided trips at the beginning of your trip figure out what's going on get some confidence figure out what gear to use what rigs to use and then come out here and do this on your own at the end of your trip kids settle down to bed all right guys lay down and go to sleep.
I think i'm gonna do a little fishing so this right here is a pink salmon and there are thousands of them right in there there you go i don't know if you can see this but there's easily 5-600 salmon in front of me.
All right this is why they call them humpies the males get the big hump on the back there we go another pink these pinks are just in here thick i'm getting hit almost every cast but i should get the fire going and get breakfast made so the boys have something warm to wake up to.
Good morning dad yeah you got we got a little sun on the old back waking up to bacon egg sandwiches all right our boats here let's get loaded up bam bam bam got three as soon as we threes we started holy mackerel we had such a good time i'll put a link in the video description.
To phantom river charter's website but oh we're sunburned and we're gonna go get some sunscreen we have about five hours to kill so uh we're gonna go into talking and just kind of see if we can find something to entertain ourselves we're here at atv tours and rides in talkeetna.
And we're gonna see if we can't go on a little atv ride with the boys and maybe just maybe tommy will get to drive his own atv you excited bud yeah you are you just hop up and wait and wait for his instructions okay the tricky parts i'm gonna drive and.
Then the easy parts you're gonna get a drive okay all right nathan you ready yeah tommy's doing great toby what do you think is this awesome this is so fun are you nervous nope.
tommy high five yeah see the beer scratching the wood i'll tell you what there's a lot of atv tours in alaska but very few that will let kids as young as nathan ride along and even.
Fewer than let kids as young as tommy drive was that one of your favorite things we've done so far that's my favorite tool we ever done before right there number six i can't wait to see photos mama brought food yay we settled in nicely into our cottage now we're gonna.
Take the kids over to a little playground and just kind of relax a little bit holy mackerel this is one great little playground i learned this at school hey vega i'm a little wide in the caboose this doesn't fit me too well.
Okay this may be the best playground i've ever seen it is 5 30 in the morning and are you guys glad to be up now there we go i don't know if you guys can see it but there's probably 500 pink salmon right here just about 15 feet off the.

There you go tom oh first our first pink salmon looks almost like a rainbow trout all right we're gonna let him go of all the species of salmon we're likely to catch today silvers are the most popular to eat and your limit it doesn't really matter which salmon you catch you're only.
Allowed three salmon so we're letting go the pinks and keeping the silvers that's a pink i sure thought it was a silver oh it's actually a small pink too on top of that look at that as soon as we got grandpa out of there your bad luck went away.
