What is going on doggies welcome back to another video and welcome to a shelter building survival challenge all right let's keep this one short and sweet basically what i want to do is i want to build a survival shelter right now here in australia we are coming into winter it has been pissing down with rain this morning the nights are.
Freezing cold basically what i want to do is i want to see if we can build a survival shelter keeping ourselves out of the elements away from the rain away from the wind and basically trying to keep ourselves as warm as we possibly can during the night now what i'm going to do is i'm going to put myself into a very shitty very uncomfortable situation.
Basically i'm going to build a nice little shelter right here i've been walking around for quite a while now i'll show you guys why i've chosen this location and it does look quite good so we're going to build a survival shelter as that sun sets this afternoon what i'm going to do is i'm actually going to dig a hole in the dirt i'm going to bury.
Myself in the soil so basically i'm going to make a coffin i'm going to jump into the dirt i'm going to cover my whole entire body in sand and soil and i'm going to sleep underneath the earth or underneath the sand in the mud for the whole entire night and see if that can keep us dry and warm for the whole entire night it's going to be.
Uncomfortable but this is a um this is a challenge that i really really want to see if it works or not uh righto now that the sweeping and the housework is done it's nice and clean in this area basically this right here is where we're going to build that shelter right smack.
Bang in the middle there a very simple but a very effective shelter is what we're gonna try to make today and um we need one thing and one thing only to get that shelter made and that is this bad boy here with this axe we can just about make anything in the bush so we've got a.
Beautiful axe here what we're going to do is we're going to head bush and we'll um see if we can go get a couple of materials that are right for this shelter we need two main supports that's all we need for the rest we can use everything else there you go first fly of the mission.
Fly number one how many flies we're gonna get today my life ah here we go all right we have got the most beautiful piece of wood here this is basically the whole entire frame it'll be the stand it'll be the upright standing.
Piece of wood and it's going to be the back spine of this shelter so this piece of wood that we've got here i don't know six meters you'd be here if you're pushing five and a half to six meters long weighs a ton but we ended up getting it back to camp and um now we've got to do is clean it up.
Cut it in half again i'm going to use one side as a spine like i said one side is a vertical upstand whew ah that is bloody beautiful look at that that is a really.
Really really nice piece of wood right there well that's it that is the majority of the hard work done well not really but that is a big chunk of the hard work done all right i'm gonna start digging some holes and setting up some frames.
Uh huh so i oh look at that that's snug that's not going anywhere.
Beautiful all right the race is on if you guys can see that behind me that's a big black cloud over there there's another massive black one behind the clips over there and um i reckon it's going to start raining pretty soon what i don't want to happen is.
Is to get the sand in here wet because right now this sand is actually quite dry and i'm actually going to bury myself in that sand tonight so what we're going to try to do is get this shelter up and running so we can keep that sand nice and dry.
Oh here she comes all right we're about i don't know halfway through building this shelter it's about about half of it is 80 waterproof the other half is about 10 waterproof right now and mother nature is about to open her legs and piss on us have a look at this.
Look at this big juicy cloud up here this thing's already spitting rain and you can see look at the rain over there piercing down she's opening her legs and she's letting it gush so um hi all we're gonna have to do is we're just gonna have to take shelter in here and um.
Just hide up on the corners these two corners are pretty these two corners that we've made here are pretty dry um not too much water should get into that side there's just the back end but it is what it is we're just gonna have to sit inside this little shelter and um stay dry while this rain passes.
Look at how she's about to that is heavy rain over there man that is a whole entire chunk of rain she's about to piss on us here we go hey this is so dude all right nothing is going to plan right now it is raining cats and dogs out there.
Um look at this i've literally just put this tarp over me and my bag like a little bit of rope there the bloody axe the billy i've literally just had to stick this tarp over us um i had absolutely no time to even try to get over the shelter it is pissing down these are the only clothes that i've got and um.
Like i said mate we're out here for the next 24 hours and i can't i can't afford to get soaking wet so look at this ready our shelter over there i tried my hardest to get the tarp over it but just couldn't get it done in time so hopefully that sand's not too wet inside there.
I'm just gonna curl up in a ball here wait for this rain to stop and we'll um we'll keep going hey like i brought this thing i would have been stuffed it is pissing down right now look at man all right i've had no other option but to use a tarp on the roof.
Here to keep us dry there's still a little bit of water getting in but um like right this is last resorts this rain isn't meant to hit to tonight i was hoping that i'd have a complete shell to set up but the rain has set in doggies if you look at this.
It is pissing down what i'm going to actually do is get me beauty out there because i want to collect a little bit of this water um i want to collect a little a little bit of that water so we can make something special later on but look at this we're rained we're getting.
Rained on she's here to stay i reckon wow if i didn't bring this tarp i would have been absolutely fingered it's not even put on the tent it's not even put on the shelter properly there's no it's it's the rain's coming from the north anyway so we'll be right.
Wait for this rain to pass and i'll set this this um tarp up properly hectic oh all right that rain came down so heavy um another massive rain cloud over there big bad boy over there sort of clearing up behind me but all.
Over there is just big dirty rain clouds so very very quickly we're going to change our um change our approach right now i am not giving up on this mission i still want to bury myself alive for the next 12 off for the whole entire night and see if i can stay warm it is freezing cold right now it's going to be a bloody.
Cold night thank god i brought this tarp so what i'm doing with these rocks is i'm tying each corner of the tarp down um we've got no other option there's no way i'd be able to stay dry in this shelter right now there's just it's just impossible to do in this time frame that we've got so.
I'm gonna tie these use these rocks tie down each corner at the top make sure it's nice and tight and um we're gonna do it before this rain comes because it's not it's not messing around now mother nature she's pissing on us hard dude that absolutely just pissed down just then that was like torrential rain.
So what i've done now is i've had no other option i've had no choice but we've got to set up a tarp over this tent or i'm gonna get absolutely flogged tonight and um like i keep saying we are not giving up on this mission we will be sleeping here for the whole entire night so what i've done is we've set up a tarp over the top of the shelter that we've.
Been building and um now it is 100 reinforced we are about we'll be able to stay in there beautiful weather good night and tonight now it's reinforcing some big clouds still hanging over us and um tonight's meant to be some real big rain so we've got reinforcement we've got a tarp over the top didn't want to use it but.
Look you just got to do what you got to do out here certain times like this it's all good that's going to be nice and dry inside there so we can bury ourselves later on hopefully we can keep warm it is freezing right now even though i'm wearing jeans and my good old shirt it is um she's bloody cold right now so it's going to be a cold one tonight no.
Fire's not allowed to have a fire that that defeats the purpose of this challenge so hey i'm going to keep working on this just keep plodding away make it a nice little house for the night and um we don't have too far off we're not too far off now that sun's going to set so it's going to be a bloody interesting.
Night it's going to be an uncomfortable night i'll give you the hot tip all right we are at the business end of this challenge right now what i'm doing is i'm digging the human coffin for the night and um sometimes i seriously just stop i've got to stop and just think to myself field.
Day where do you get these video ideas man like i'm actually going to bury myself alive in the dirt for the next 12 hours or 12 hours is a little bit ambitious i ain't sleeping for 12 hours i'll give you the hot tip but we're gonna be sleeping in here for a couple of hours i reckon.
I don't even know if i'll be able to get sleep in here but we're gonna give it a red hot crack and um this is basically what it looks like right now i've got just about oh yeah that's the size of my body what i've done is i've dug a trench inside this tent you can see.
My whole entire body is underneath the ground level so basically i want to go down about another 80 mil 100 mil and then once that sun goes down and it starts getting really really bloody cold what i'm going to do is drag that sand over my body from each side and we're going to make a little mound of sand over my body and.
I'm just going to be pinned here for the whole entire night and see if it actually does keep you warm because i honestly reckon if you didn't do this tonight you'd free you you wouldn't freeze to death but holy you'd be cold man so let's do it man we're doing it we are doing.
The human burying a human alive to keep warm at night who knows man i reckon it'll work the sand is beautiful and dry under here look at that all right what we're doing down here is i'm just cleaning up a stick getting the bark getting all the little.
Bloody bugs and off the end of this stick because we've got a beautiful little bit of grub to cook it is about to start raining not even joking that's rain right now so i've got a gas cooker down here come on yes there we go all right we've got a little we've got a little baby gas.
Cooker there i've got a billy which is full of that rain water i'm going to tuck that billy straight on there and um we've got a little baby bit of grub to cook before we jump in the tent not even joking it is about to piss down with rain right now i'll show you guys what we've got what we've got for dinner and then um we're.
Gonna quickly jump inside there we got rain coming ah yes look at this man a couple of noodles cooked in a little bush shelter oh man oh that's how good listen to the rain on the roof.
It's starting to rain again man this rain's on and off there's a massive massive cloud right there that thing looks like it's going to hold a fair bit of rain i reckon what we've done now with the tarp over the top of this shelter we should be pretty good for the night like i'm sitting way deep in the little.
Shelter right now we're way away from the entrance we should be good man these noodles are all time um i'm just thinking just then i just seen a mosquito like fly through the light of the um house that we made i suppose by covering yourself in dirt at night you're completely eliminating any kind.
Of snakebite insect bite obviously obviously my head's going to be above the sand but like by covering yourself up you're completely eliminating any kind of animal bites insects bites spider bites snake bite mozzie bites sam fly bite all those little bastards that live out here in australia you're eliminating 90 of.
Them so there is an upside to doing this dumb ass across challenge bars it is absolutely pissing down outside right now and um man as soon as that sun goes down it starts getting pretty chilly hey.
The rains are set in the sun's completely gone we've just had a nice feed of noodles and um sitting back in our little homemade bloody shelter it's pretty sick it's actually getting quite cold though it's not time for bed yet it's too early to be burying myself into the sand i'm.
Literally just sitting here just enjoying what we've done today the sound of the rain on the tab it's quite nice actually it's pretty sick so far so good there is no water coming in here whatsoever it's just getting bloody cold man oh well i've been sitting here for quite.
A while actually i'm just i'm just like literally just sitting here in this hole just like just relaxing man the sound of the birds and the frogs and the bugs outside the rain on the roof it's hell nice but it's actually getting really really bloody cold even this sand that's exposed out here is actually quite cold.
Right now so i'm gonna start um burying myself in this little hole here and we'll see if we can keep ourselves warm over the duration of the night time right now is it's 8 22 at night i don't know if you guys can see that but it's 8 22. so um i'm going to call it a night i'm.
Going to see if i can get some shadow i'm actually naked i reckon i'll fall asleep i'm going to use my bag here as a pillow that's like the perfect spot there and um here's that rain again look it doesn't stop raining man so lucky we've got this tarp up here all right i'm gonna start burying myself.
In the dirt and um let's see if this experiment works what i need to do is i need to actually hold up hold up hold up hold up before we do anything i need to do this because that's going to be horrible in the morning man.
Sort your out all right a couple of things that we need to do is button up my shirt because that's going to get sand all through it going right up to the neck button i don't want to wake up with sand all through me bloody pants make sure this is pulled down pants over boots.
Oh i'm gonna start burying myself in here all right here we go nature's blanket nature's blanket is coming in hot look at this man there is no way i would get cold with this amount of sand on me we're about to find our doggies we're about to find out.
Look at this this is a very very strange feeling right now my legs are completely pinned look at this like actually i actually can't move man my legs are completely covered in sand there's about that much sand over the top of my legs right now and now what i have to do is lay back like.
This grab these two piles of sand on my left and the right and slowly start piling them up over my chest that's where i really got to keep it warm is around my chest my under my arms that sort of section i want that to be a thick pile of sand and um i reckon that this is definitely going to keep us warm i.
Actually i actually can not move my legs right now i'm locked in here here we go there's no turning back now we're way too far in all right tell you what this is definitely going to keep me warm look at this this is a little donut if you've ever.
Seen a doughnut before all right is this would this even become it's actually quite comfortable it's just really heavy on my legs like i can't there i cannot move whatsoever right now i'm actually stuck here but i definitely definitely reckon it'll generate my body warmth will generate.
Heat over time and i won't get cold still i hate more sand over there and yeah look and get it right up here on my chest just like a duna all right i will leave two hands exposed but that's basically me i'm completely.
Covered in sand right now in a human coffin you'd hate to be claustrophobic wouldn't you it's actually quite it's very very very strange feeling see if we can get a bit more sand from over there all right so right now.
I am a hundred percent covered in a massive blanket of sand have a go at this fully covered in sand you can just see my little boots down there they're hanging out down there but i've got a full blanket of sand over me and um both hands are exposed got the sand up.
As far as i can get it without breathing it in and um tell you what mate i reckon this this would keep you warm in any kind of conditions still too early in the night to see time is um 8 44. so it took us a little bit of time to bury ourselves in here.
But we're in here and we're in for the long run um there's not really much else i can do right now is except to sit here and sleep i'm going to sleep pretty good i reckon honestly i reckon i could sleep here fine we'll see how we go.
It's a little bit of a strange feeling listen to this the rain's back listen to that it's about it's about to piss down there are some weird noises i reckon there's kangaroos outside right now i you can hear like like thud thud outside it's still raining it's been raining for.
About two hours straight like flat out raining two hours non-stop strange sounds man there's a weird noise coming from like that corner of the door it's not the corner it's about five ten meters away but there's definitely something out there in the bush i just got bitten a couple of times on the back of my hand by a.
Mosquito which sucks and um time check it is 10 what is that 10 48 at night so a little bit of time has passed i actually dozed off before like i fully fully dozed off and then i sort of woke back up when i heard that sound just then but.
So far so good i'm not i'm actually not cold and it is quite cold tonight and i'm actually not cold so so far so good it's still raining all right i'll check in with you guys when something weird or wacky happens but this is obviously this is us still we're just.
Sitting here buried in sand it's been raining for like two or two and a half hours flat out mosquitoes are smashing smashing my hands and um that's life right now i'll check in with you guys a little bit later on i'm gonna try to get some sleep.
And um it is absolutely pissing down right now listen to this oh boy what is going on doggies it is early early in the morning i've actually been sleeping for quite a.
While it's getting windy man this tarp is whipping around like crazy 2 15 in the morning my body is not cold i'm actually my arms are freezing cold but the rest of my body's pretty good it's not bad at all really a couple of mosquitoes.
That's right oh good bloody morning to you oh man currently 7 11. well that's not the time 7 11 in the morning 7 11 on a saturday morning i'm just woken up in the middle of the.
Bush it's actually so peaceful it rained all night man i'm dying for a piss that's the one problem when you're stuck in a little place like this you can't get up oh i'm gonna get out of bed i'm gonna get out of here this is i'm actually fully stuck in here oh wow look how dirty i.
Am oh you're kidding oh look at this dust monster oh man i'm about to pee my pants oh it is a beautiful day right now look at this dude all right let's talk about sleeping in the sand.
So last night that was a um first off it's a very very bloody weird feeling because you literally can't move like the whole entire night i couldn't move my legs couldn't move my torso you're like fully locked in um that's a weird feeling but to be like 100 fair to be 100 honest i actually did get a couple of hours of solid sleep man.
Like it's kind of comfortable being buried in sand believe it or not like i was having a good sleep until mozzies would come in and bite me on the back of my hand and then the wind random gusts of wind would come flap the top and some super heavy rain those three things woke me up every now and then but to be like 100 honest i actually did had a pretty.
Bloody good sleep and the whole reason we're out here to see does it keep you warm and i can guarantee you it does keep you warm from where i was buried down i was extremely warm my hands were cold my arms were cold my actually my neck was getting pretty cold last night but apart from that it did keep me warm where i was buried and um.
Look i can 100 say if you're stuck out in the bush you're freezing cold you've got no means of starting a fire you can bury yourself and you will be warm at night that is a given man i've just proven that i've just proven it and that is for sure so look at this little shelter man today yesterday was a super fun day.
Building this bad boy that's where we just buried ourselves this is what the morning's looking like hubba baba man look at that it's a beautiful morning the only problem that i had last night sleeping in this thing really apart from the mosquitoes the rain and the wind was um at about 4 30 this morning i had.
To get up i had to go for a piss and there was absolutely no way i was getting up for a piece going back in and re-burying myself in the sand so that's the only thing if you need to get up and you're burying yourself like that well you're just gonna it's just gonna be a mission to re-bury yourself in the sand but apart from that doggies that.
Was a super fun little mission successful man i was warm i'm here i'm alive and it's bloody cold right now out here so we did it we stayed warm overnight that was the challenge and um challenge mission success doggies all right i want to thank you guys so much for watching if you guys like these kind of videos make sure you smash that like.
