Hey folks how are you i'm pretty excited for today's video we just got here we threw the canoe on the side by side drove the old polaris ranger down some dirt roads then we paddled through a little creek system and now we're here at the creekside camp.
It's a beautiful day not too much sun but it's not cold at all i got a lot of gear with me i have gear that we're going to add on to the creekside camp to build i have gear for camping out because we're going to stay overnight too i'm excited to get some more built onto this.
You can see it's still pretty wet here not as wet as last time i was here but wet enough to wear the old muck boots i've got a few ideas for the camp here uh one of them is stretching out this oil skin tarp from bushcraft spain it's pretty decent size and hooking it over top and giving myself some of an awning so coming over.
And then going down and i know it's not going to fill the hole back in but it'll give me a lot of good cover and it should stretch across the whole top so we've got that here and also to tie it on we've got some heavy duty rope they sent me check this stuff out it smells like it's.
Been smoked it's like waxed uh heavy-duty jute maybe anyways super heavy duty stuff and we're gonna use that so i'm excited for that we've also got to get more of the bed made and maybe that's as far as we'll go.
Today we'll see we might start getting some cedars for the back but uh we got all day so if you watched the last video you know it's pretty tall up there and i had a hard time getting up here last time i'm going to attempt to tie it off to a piece of a long a long stick and get the tarp to the top of the ridge pole that way we'll.
See how it works and this will be a great test for the durability of this oil skin terp from bushcraft spain i believe it's 10 by 10. but i could be wrong i have been wrong before i want it to come off easily just wrap it a few times not really tie.
It okay maybe i have to do both sides get both sides up and then then actually try and put it up maybe i'll do that all right we switched sides just works out better this way no biggie okay something.
Something we'll have to get up pull it around a plane huh okay okay this is going to be a bit more difficult than i had thought back to the drawing board.
Get my monkey on step down get your monkey on girl let's see okay it's not coming off easy okay oh that took some doing oh i'm spent.
Okay i didn't even drop my rope look at that so i got the good heavy duty rope here okay oh man that was a lot my arms feel like rubber oh monkey joe spider monkey joe.
Going to try to take that off until but i'm not holding on for my life maybe that'll make it just a touch easier you know touch quicker on the old spaghetti arms we got a steak for dinner.
Probably throw it right on the coals some cedar coals sounds all right for me all right back up here uh okay something's happening we're getting.
There this is one of the last ones uh just tying the tarp on all of its tie oats to different sections along the tripod shelter frame i'm just using a canadian jam.
To finish it up here cinch it down that's nice and tight oh she looks kind of sloppy but we're going to put a middle rib in here to tighten everything up oh look at that still looks sloppy we're getting there though let's see if.
I can do that here and tie it out to a tree farther out to stretch it out i think i'll be able to i think i cut the rope long enough if not we can add to it yeah now i'll tie a middle one out too all right we've got our long line attached to the middle we got to get this up.
High on that tree so i've placed a little y branch for a ladder there's about good oh a spider hello mr spider okay okay she's coming along.
We definitely got some coverage gonna have to tighten all that up but still not too shabby wrap this far over as it goes just tie this on itself i'm gonna do the one above i've already done the other side okay she's on there too this stuff is.
Nice to work with this rope smells heavenly i had to get a new middle pole trying to mess the other one up so i had to go after a tall dead standing i gotta clean it up so it has no pokies to rest against the tarp hey.
Nice all right not so bad do a little bit more tightening after but that's good for now i want to focus on getting some of the bed made and some of the back wall working up a sweat though tell you that.
Much how does it look oh yeah plenty of coverage plenty of coverage seeing if this is long enough to use for my bed if not i'll use it for the back part so i haven't trimmed it up.
That good yeah okay it will fit i'll use that as part of the bed i've doubled the amount of bed poles starting to look pretty good i'm gonna line them up near the back more so that i have much more protection but i'm liking the way it's looking.
Oh that cedar posturepedic this might take a little bit more adjusting because i'm a little bit on the angle oh it's not so bad oh yeah plenty of space whoa i feel very protected under here definitely it's overhead and plenty back i'm gonna put some lugs.
Coming up the back here so on the inside so that when it rains if it drips off here it'll hit the logs and drip down them like i have right here all right cool i'll start doing that now i'm making some of the back it's uh 4 30.
I'm getting hungry so i know i need my pieces about roughly this long so one two and a half roughly uh x lengths long i've got all these pieces and these cut offs and stuff from last time so i'm gonna use the ones that probably wouldn't be the greatest for firewood.
For this so one two roughly half right there seems about long enough it's actually really dry let's go over and see okay looks big enough this is gonna.
Be a wind break and help shed the rain like i said so when the rain drips off of this it's going to hit this log and roll down this log as opposed to dripping inside the tank because this is well inside this or.
Inside the shelter this is well inside this this might have to go but it's here for now i got these cedar pieces that i'll put back on after but i do want to get this back wall at least started today gotta cook some food soon.
all right i've got like five four or five pieces back there i want to take a break now to get my fire going i feel like i'm losing light relatively quickly here now so this cedar looks super clean on the inside i'm going to use this as a plate.
For my steak just one piece of it so i'm going to split it down again try and get it flatter use more for firewood too that's cool looks really really nice try from this one first at least so.
Wow perfect little charcuterie board smells lovely put that up there for now get on with the kindlings there's not a lot of weight on that seater there we go.
I want to build somewhat of a platform to get this sparrow up off the wet ground oh yeah she's soupy this is an old stump that has like uh stuff that can potentially.
Hold an ember if it was dry enough just trying to get rid of it i'm hoping there's no rocks here which i don't think there are but and let's try to get that out of the fire zone oh oh.
No oh it's just a root but it is so wet like no joke it's wet as you can see i've moved the whole thing closer than where it was last time just going to keep the fire a little bit closer to me these are pushed back everything's almost under the tarp now.
Too if it does rain so i'm not not supposed to but in the future i've got all my kindling and all my stages and stuff i've got a good like uh three foot long three and a half foot long fire going here nothing fancy just using the old later today some thin pieces and a brace.
Lots of airflow and that'll start snap crackling and popping in no time but we're not having rice krispies we're having steaks we're having a steak actually there's a rocco here that i brought last time i've used for cooking before that i might be.
Able to cook on if everything works out all right i'm gonna get some more firewood uh ready and maybe cut another p couple pieces for the back but other than that i'm probably done for the day like i said.
It's 5 30 now i'm losing i'm gonna be losing late maybe an hour so we'll work until then four days now short days these days favorite time of year though it doesn't last long enough there we go something like that at least.
Let it get hot throw it on so a while back for my birthday excuse me a while back for my birthday my wife ordered me a bunch of meat in a box from the mail and this is i believe australian wagyu it's a little bit different than.
Uh japanese but it's still a very good australian grain fed wagyu anyways this is one of the last ones i thought it was fitting to bring it here on this bushcrafty.
Creaky campy overnight that's going to go right on that stone and it's going to be heavenly oh baby you can see if it's going to be raining a lot like my ridge pole is basically where.
My last uh bed pole is so you can see how much more coverage i have it's like two feet two and a half feet there and the fire is just on the outside but i could certainly move that in another foot get a little bit more extra.
More extra coverage okay all right i upgraded i carved myself a little utensil oh that looks quite good quite good all right i'm gonna let that sit for a few minutes.
Throw some more firewood on and dig in trying to keep the long fire going a bit i'm excited i am an excited joe clean is new oh yeah so that's the pink whoa flavorful.
Very australia really knows how to wag you their beef up lovely really good quite enjoying it well this has been a good productive day that tarp is going to stay up there for as long as i want it to.
I'll leave it there for the winter and we'll see what happens next but this middle pole is going to keep the snow weight off of it the only snow weight that might accumulate is on the top there but it is pitched down so it'll probably slide off and when i come out here i'll knock it off and stuff so not too concerned about it.
I might build up some side walls here gotta get the back done in the future i would like to build up some sidewalls kind of enclose it in three sides and have this fire here and it's kind of like an adirondack shelter that way right we're kind of protected from the elements on three sides you can have a.
Fire inside of it as it is now i can sleep one person but if i put up maybe four more i can sleep two kick the fire out a little bit uh we'll figure out this the permanent fire spot once we figure out everything what's best for the area but what's best for the camp.
But as it is not too many people come and camp out these shelters with me so it's not really that big of a concern and i'm sure you can hang a hammock over in the in the in the trees somewhere too at first i was gonna have this whole.
Thing like a platform but i kind of like the idea of having it like this is big enough but this is just way way bigger than i am width wise i have plenty of room as to use this as a bed and a table it's long everything's good that way so i like having the fire kind of inside it and close by when especially when it's going to be all snow around i can.
Even if there's snow this year i can even build up the sides with snow oh that would be sweet completely build hey our train completely build the sides up with snow in the back too and this would be like a cave.
Because you know you know how it is like a couple years ago when i moved up here we were digging those trenches to camp and they were like six feet deep or whatever so imagine that we get that much snow again last year was a dud but imagine we get that much snow again it'll all be around fallen i'll have to like dig this out in the in.
Here and i can build it up on the sides and this will be like a cave a snow cave a big shelter that'll be so cool stoked for that and again like i said if the creek freezes correctly i can ice skate here which is pretty nifty well supper was.
Real good and the old tradition continues the burning of the plate of the old usgi bivvy the bed roll is protected not too shabby at all and even if i forgot any of the pokeys.
That i'm pretty sure yeah this baby is strong enough to protect it cool hey i'll cut a couple more logs and try and get them back there behind i have another idea i might tie a log going from that side to that side right underneath the tarp on this on here and.
Then lean all the logs on that that way they're all level and it looks a little bit better because they look a little wampus right now but that's for another day i'll just collect some more today and we can worry about that next time a lot closest to me is burned out i'm just going to replace it.
Throw in the old ends the old dogs all right that'll cook slow if i really want it to move to do to i really want to cook faster or boil it faster i can just move it over here but i'm not concerned i'll just boil it up slow maybe throw a piece of wood down that's.
That way or something like that so i've got my peppermint tea here let that bad boy steep i'm going to read some of my book on my phone just relax i've been sitting up on top of the shelter here quite warm been sitting up here drinking my tea.
I'm actually really warm up here sitting above the fire like this this is a pretty good setup the smoke is just kind of going up in front of me and i'm getting all the benefits of the warmth of the fire the glow look at that no no flashlights on right now that's just from fire you gotta love.
It really nice a little peppermint tea night cap nice night there's no wind at all some stars out and uh i'm quite comfortable oh shoot man i passed out there for a bit it's 11.
30. 11 45 now oh my goodness this thing's just for good all right folks i'm going to bed get with you in the morning good morning.
It's just 8 o'clock that's crazy uh so pretty good uh i have to get up and pee now and it's kind of chilly the fire's dead cold but that's to be expected cedar doesn't really have uh good coals but we'll get up get a fire going i'm.
Gonna pee so the bed was totally flat i slept really good so that was a bonus excuse me there's all that dry wood i split yesterday plenty of wood there to get a fire going.
Got my tea my first pack of oatmeal and my self-carved eating trough trowel utensil half spoon half chisel but it looks cool i did this.
Did a good job on this if i do say so myself sun's coming up blue sky yesterday was pretty gray all day oh yeah yeah that's nice so this um this tarp got some frost on and i can see it dripping down.
Off and it's dripping way it's almost dripping past the fire there so it's a good overhang i felt completely sheltered all night and just putting that back wall proper is gonna do a little bit more for me so yeah anyway.
Hope you guys enjoyed the video not much left to do like i said eat up this drink my uh tea pack up my gear and go pack up my gear and go so i hope you guys have a good day i thank you for sticking around this long in the video if you have maybe consider throwing me a subscribe.
If you liked the video we'll see you soon on the next one goodbye i'm messy very thick frost there a helmet too so.
