Camping with a Canine
You doing buddy oh hello there how you folks doing i'm doing awesome this is an exciting day this is tripper's first roll canoe trip we're gonna see how it goes we're open at gamut of gamma lake up in lake superior provincial park the bugs are out here pretty bad so.
We're gonna see how it goes with the dog i think i'll post up here on game of the gamma and they do a bunch of series of big brutal portages to get into some back lakes and then back out today to camp on gamma gamma we'll see how the dog does with the heat the bugs i'm looking forward to it.
The reason i picked this route is because there's a lot of portaging and it will burn the dog's energy out which i need trevor's going to carry his own stuff in his backpack he's got a bowl his food some toys give him a sense of purpose give him a job out here i have to make sure everything's packed.
Away real good because there's a high chance he's going to tip us he's too big for the front of the boat now when i started training him to go in the boat that's where i wanted him to go because he was small and i didn't know he was gonna get this big i didn't think.
He was gonna get this big but uh let's see if i can put my gear in the front and having him in the back because he's about 60 pounds and my backpack can't even be 30 pounds so with him in the front i will be plowing and i don't want to do that it's a hot day already guys.
I'm gonna get my fishing rod out of the way hopefully he'll let me do some fishing you've got to be a better pudding than this he's found a stick already he likes to swat at the black flies and try to bite them and stuff so i'm concerned that he's gonna go a.
Little crazy in the boat and tip us wait wait wait wait buddy tripper good boy yes okay down down buddy good boy good boy all right let's see how this doesn't works too bad as long as he stays there we'll be all right but he's already moving.
So this will be fun i should probably tie my fishing pole in he's kind of leaning quite a bit over the side there but it's too cute i'll just compensate okay that's not the greatest stop man so before this whole nonsense we've been dealing with i was.
Supposed to get a prospector pack boat from swift and that's um the same setup as this taco style but a prospector hull which is very wide like you can fit two of these inside of it ethan has one avid outdoorsy guy so it's supposed to get a 14. they made it for.
Me and everything it's called the tripper and it's specifically for tripper so he can go in the front and put my gear in the back it will still be even keeled and it's gonna be way more stable than this so he can hang outside and do whatever he wants to do.
Without uh having too much effect on the boat but can we stop biting the water as with everything it got delayed i talked to them the other day and it's still happening just uh don't have it yet but i couldn't take up the up i couldn't pass up the opportunity to.
Get out i've got uh i've only been back for one full day this is my last trip and i felt guilty about not taking stripper i didn't catch any fish on my last trip so i thought let's go see what we can do about that and i don't care if i spend one night here or two i have the option to do.
Whatever so feeling pretty good pretty hot tripper stop stop he keeps fighting the water let's go get ourselves an island site and then we will uh continue on down these big portages with a little bit less gear and that'll take all day to get.
Back in there and it'll come back out for supper over to this big lake what a nice day i put these on instead of wearing them on my head huh he's he's physically vibrating he's shaking so bad dude stop i can feel the whole boat shake.
Like just calm down man dude everything's okay i promise you seriously this is what you're named after please please try to enjoy it see up ahead a couple islands i think our camp's gonna be on this island i think that's where we're gonna go.
He's calmed down quite a bit you go boy nope down good dog it's 110 everything he does so it's almost 11. i'm not i'm not certain how far i can get down the portages the goal was to get to old woman lake uh and then back in a day but that's 6k of portage let alone the lakes that i have to paddle through to get to there.
So we'll see we'll bring you know we're going to bring most of the gear our food and everything even if we stop we'll hook up supper along the way back even if we don't get back until tonight that's fine i should go this way around i'm trolling um we'll see how far we can get and that.
That's part of the fun today and the mission canoe trip with tripper burn his energy out on some portages because it certainly doesn't do it sitting in the back of the canoe all right here's the island site we'll go paddle up and check it out i've never been on this one before i think i've only stayed on this lake once before i.
Wasn't at this site i was hoping the island set would be breezy but it looks like it's in the bush a bit there's not really much breeze to speak of just right now at least let's go hop in there and check it out though okay didn't have to tell him twice you good.
Bro yeah okay so i mean 110 there's no there's no medium zero to 100 real quick real quick around that real ish all right let's go check this place out my boat is full of water oh this is nice there is a great breeze coming.
Absolutely awesome wind even not even a breeze a wind coming through here yeah this is home nice clean fire pit thank you to whoever was here before that's really awesome yes sir yes sir look at these guys cool beans we got everything we need here.
I brought really oh careful i brought really a little bit of gear this time just because it's such a small duration and i wanted to be able to see if we could just squeak by different than last trip different than any trip this year yet careful my camera hey buddy you hear the zoomies.
I got a bear bell on them but i might take that off don't get that backpack off dude oh boy hey you're a good dog he did a good job in the canoe buddy we're not done yet we gotta set up camp so we'll take this off for a minute all right go oh i'm crazy.
Please don't knock over my camera hey hey hey what's this sit this is the game we play as soon as that gravity yanks okay go do it today then make a liar out of me so after my last camp with john on the.
Crown land camp failure i uh i feel very very lucky to have all these open spots and i'm looking around look at all this this uh real estate to put my tent then i come back here and shangri-la look at the flat spot look at the the size of this flat spot.
I can just just sleep you know flat tripper flat it's all new eh man it's all new smells for you big guy all right well i'm gonna get my stuff and set up my tent uh over back in here in a nice shade and flat this is such a nice spot it's a really.
Cool campsite very happy i came here very happy all right we got minimal gear tiny little bit of tackle i've got my fox light gear handkerchief little hank paracord possible pouch small chilling hammock for the daytime batteries chargers medical stuff for both of us.
Food cooking pot and stove sit pad small grill tent poles sleeping bags silky saw spot warmer clothes rain jacket a little bit of scotch sleeping pad insulating layer and my tent and pegs so that's like 25 pounds tops everything's okay man i brought the big agnes uh two-man tent.
I have i don't remember the name the name of it i'll tell you in a minute i'll have to read it um mountain glow maybe i'm not sure anyways it's good because it fits both the dog and i relatively well and it's not overly heavy it's not as heavy as that um.
Luxe tent i've been using and both of us i think this the inside of this is bigger the vestibule on the other one's bigger but i don't want him to have to stay out in the bugs all night speaking of which i don't see any bugs so knock on oh trip or stop you're gonna knock me.
Knock on wood all my clothes are dirty still from the last trip because they were in my car i never even brought i never even brought them inside so my wife did not have a chance to do them all right that's set up you see to move it around.
It's a benefit to me a bonus to me i like to be able to move the tent around so i think the flattest spot is right where all my gear is it's not that i need my wife to wash my clothes i just can't do it myself if we want the clothes to come out looking the way they went in.
I can't do it there's a crow making some good clucking noises i hope that shows up in the microphone all right it's all done i'm not gonna worry about the rain fly right now and it is called the big agnes steamboat no that's the where it's from i've done.
That before down those are some cool noises all right good boy let's go all right i'll try to show you on here i'm right here where this arrow is on this island right so i gotta go down the old woman route i'm gonna hit that portage right there.
That black line portage into a small lake a little bit of a paddle another portage into a small lake piscea lake then a big portage into a small lake another portage small lake another portage big portage into big into old woman that's the destination and then back out.
The same day so from here to here baby basically oh there from there there through all those little lakes fuel up before we head out got some homemade chocolate chip banana bread thanks honey.
There's absolutely no bugs here i don't want a junk set but there's not been one and that's the reason for these silly clothes you should have seen john after that trip he sent me a picture and his whole waistline just blown up like hundreds of bikes of bites i had maybe three.
Just goes to show you tight fitting so they can't climb up anywhere and this isn't overly hot this is pretty thin stuff rhino skin socks tucked in shirt tucked in you look like a fool like i look like a tool bag i know that i'd rather look like this and be definitely sick.
From bug bites all canoe season or all early canoe season learning a thing or two as i get older don't actually don't let them have access to your skin you won't get bit that's why those those buffs those neck buffs are good to go over to the old corn holier keep them off your neck and your ears.
Out of your ears all right let me just up and go we'll go all right real quick before we get out of here i'm going to leave his backpack here i took i've taken out the food i'll bring it with me i've got his backpack hanging up there just to let people know that i am camped.
Here and look at this what i found the people who camped here before me are awesome they know what's up look they big sheets of birch bark blocking rain from all this awesome dry hardwood so all i'll have to do when i come back is stop along the shore somewhere and find some like little.
Kindling stuff i'm good to go i won't even use all this wood there's a plane okay we're going for real now up good boy like a child i swear like a child i can't say much though as i am also childish.
Children having children we'll keep this up here as a incentive down good boy let's go so basically gotta go behind this island and find a little narrows and uh yeah right in the first portrait second i guess fish skin on the bottom of the water so.
Anybody caught a trout all right we'll see how far we can get today no big deal either way just having a good day out i think with the doggies it's plenty this is a perfect day man just a breeze the breeze alone there's no bugs i think i'm gonna take my wife.
Camping next week my mom's coming up for the first time for the first time in a long time so we'll be able to get a couple days out just me and will which we haven't been able to do and i don't know man it seems like a year or so maybe half a year but.
Will's been cooped up at home good four months now so i'd like to get her out keep her sanity a little bit controlling as we go here i might have to switch up lures i just got like some x wrap on i might want to put a little cleo on maybe a deep diver.
We're coming up into some shallows so i'll have to pull it up through it easily what is he doing he's not even trying to jump out or anything there's land right there on all around us and he's just he's showing he's doing really good i'm blown away.
Actually i thought it was gonna be quite hectic to be honest with you you're a good boy you're a good boy tripper good dog well i switched up lures and put on a spoon and start casting leave it and he started shaking like crazy he tried to go after it the first time i.
Had to yell at him to lay down and he freaking just is vibrating the whole boat he's just too excited trevor no no uh no no down i have to tell him every time i guess i gotta i got a fish dude like i have i.
Have to fish here there's a beaver lodge right there come on there's a beaver lodge bro he doesn't care okay stop hey no no no no see he gets so excited pretty soon and that will hopefully burn some of his energy out i don't think we're getting far today.
But it's a good recon mission it's okay tripper down oh good boy all right that's the first portage this one is 450 stay out and then a little hop and then at 800. so we will get what we're looking for real quick here.
that's a hook okay that's awesome he's having a blast just walking around in the marsh over here this is this is enjoyable watching him have fun watching him wag his tail smell all the new smells splash all through the muck there you go.
Boy hey you having fun buddy i got the bear bell on him just in case just to keep me knowing where he is in case there's anybody else around him so he doesn't scare startle them he's like he's gonna lay down in it to try and cool off go ahead down.
Go boy down no all right do your thing you're a good boy all right bud here we go oh this is a climb oh my goodness just a little 450 you know just the breaker get the heart pump some nice scenery on this portage big.
Old rock face we're coming up too oh there's some elevation changes though that makes for a totally different portage as a benefit for flats i was done if it were flat there's a moose there's a moose in the water trap.
Come here oh my god tripper leave it come trevor come trevor he's gonna run he's never not listened on a recall never i gotta go see make sure he's not gonna run out of steam and drown tripper.
Come here he comes silly dog he's gonna try and get my boat good boy i gotcha come on wait wait i got you you're okay stay okay we gotta get back to land buddy.
Wait one second okay stay this way come on over here that thing would have mercked me bro thing would have done you in what are you thinking you gotta listen on the recalls i swear that was the only time we not ever ever not listen.
I got you i got you relax relax i know i know i know we're gonna throw you onto the shore okay hold on tripper come here trevor come come here come tripper tripper man he's crazed he won't the smell is driving him nuts he won't listen to me.
At all like i'm gonna have to head him off here okay tripper tripper oh you decided to join me did you hey that wasn't very nice tripper that wasn't very nice you got you gotta listen dude look he's still all about he's just gonna go just leave.
Don't worry about me i don't need you around or anything oh it's a wild animal okay this is the big one the 800 and something so here we go it's quite pretty beaver dam is the start of the portage come on chase that poor moose away.
A jerk like a jerk good boy what a pretty sight you're doing good tripper oh there's frogs everywhere how are you doing you smell something i'm telling you guys he's wild so wilding so i think i found a little bit of a.
Shortcut around this 850 john buddy john from back country angry ontario was telling me that this is a dicey one to find and it was it was it was their the sign is way over there there's no trail but i walked through this little streamy metal thing just like you said i.
Found the the hook up to the puller doors across a bunch of beaver dams so anyways i think i paddled to the end and cut off a few hundred meters at least it's really pretty really pretty back in here it's all just a network of beaver dams and beaver lodges.
Very beavery avery enough for the beaver club beaver beaver right real ones will know he's chasing the frogs good boy this beaver dam has become part of the of the trail very old anybody good boy you're looking good up there.
Big guy your legs doing good and everything i had to walk this one first to find it so this one's a double carry look even on this side the portage sign has fallen off the tree's broken down i don't imagine too many people have been back in here yet.
So we got a uh looks like a small creek to paddle out for quite some time might be buggy trevor's just gonna walk it maybe i'll let him run next to me keep going good boy one good boy keep going go.
So nope okay get in the back come on vote vote no vote down good boy all right opening up somewhat nothing followed me in my boat off of my uh off my boot looks like some good fishing.
Bait orange on the under underside greenish on the top i'll let you go leachy guy before you get too attached to me huh you gotta admit that was a good one huh attached to me because it's the huh huh bad joke.
Bad joke tripper all right i see the big lake in front oh one the opening opening of the small lake compared to this is big piscia i believe and we'll try to fish on that lake oh all right then tripper come on let's go good boy lay down.
Trip it down tripper oh down good down good boy check it out there's a dragonfly larva looks like alien hey one thing i didn't consider was how much water my boat was going to get in it just from off of the dog.
And these little boats weights weight is an issue oh yeah that'll dry it out good boy some uh dehydrated powdered turkey and beef uh dog food we got more it's got more than turkey and beef in it but supposed to do equal parts.
Dry and equal parts water so we'll put a half a cup in to start no wait wait wait he's never had this before i've never tried it before with him one second buddy but if not i have some extra a little bit extra food i can eat or i can i can give them but uh if he's hungry enough he'll eat for sure.
So get some water and mix this up okay supposed to mix it up and let it sit for a minute a few minutes it like kind of reconstitutes yeah one minute buddy we'll see you get this down we'll give you some more all right a pretty sweet new blade called the.
Tripper carbon fiber made by deering supposed to replicate the um fall niven f1 but on a smaller scale the thing is light the sheath is almost heavier than it where's your food up oh you laid on it but get up get up stand up.
Stand up stand up stand up you laid in your food you laid in your food here you go it's probably mashed down because you laid on it bro what a silly dog what dog is not aware of where the food is mmm smells like meat still looks like meat's back on the menu boys.
He's like oh where's more of that i want to say i'm about halfway done the last portage into a old woman lake say 800 meter it's uh it's three o'clock right now oh i'm wiped i'm gonna have to find a.
Spot on the island and relax we're on the on the lake relax and cook up supper and then start heading back pretty quickly so i don't run out of time i think i left the camp at around 10 or 11. say i left there 10 10 and it's three.
Now five hours so by the time i get there yeah that's pushing it ah that's pushing it man the whole reason for me doing this was to what what everything's okay was to just run him into the ground all day long and that's why i'm going in and.
Out instead of camping in there go trevor kind of wish i was camping in there now because this is a lot to go in and out in one day but uh yeah we got to do it now i can't stop i got to go somewhere neat there's nowhere back there so.
That's what we have to do almost there big guy the last leg now uh i hope i didn't bite off more than i could chew i gotta get back to that camp before too dark oh some more man this is the most incline and decline on the porch i've ever seen.
This is crazy oh my goodness go tripper look at him he's he's having trouble walking down that oh my goodness i got a canoe and a backpack on me yeah oh man this is craziness come on almost there almost there oh man.
What a sight for sore eyes holy smokes i don't even think that was a poor touch it came down on whoa old woman lake she's a gem cliffs and everything i think i see a cabin up in here let's go check it out there's there's a secondary island down there where there's a campsite on.
And i'll go i'm gonna head down there to relax and eat my my supper and stuff like that it's 3 30 now so that that portage didn't take me too too long to do but on the way back like it was all half it was downhill coming this way on the way back it's gonna be all uphill so i'm.
Gonna have to uh single carry halfway up up and again which is okay yeah there's a cabin here we'll check it out shall i do guard a intern do park provincial du lac superior.
Impeccable french says nailed closed i guess it's nailed closed there's another door i'll go check but there's a window hello oh this is cool i think this is the same video from uh or.
Same cabin from john's video oh this is cool chaga looks like a bag of chaga a thing of lasagna some noodles oh that's nice moose skull pretty cool love many trust you but always paddle your own canoe.
Jg bbb saw yeah i don't want to force it some survival stuff deck of cards pots and pans i think there used to be a oh there it is log book 2020 june 4th all these people are oh what up.
Interesting times back in the real world nice to see it not much has changed out here came in through midge muramoki heading out through gamma to gamma road where i've stashed a bike on access to 70. i know these guys shuttle back to midge grateful that it's all still days from now grateful for.
This time to connect that is funny what up i follow you home in ogoma i follow you on instagram buddy we're buddies we are buddies okay so people were up in here as late as june 15th all right that's cool oh i always wanted to do that since i.
Saw this video all right let's get out of here go paddle down to the island have a uh have a snacky poo and get ourselves back okay you know i gotta try to go up the stairs here all right that's it all right we're here so it took me five.
Hours to get here it gets dark at roughly 10. i have to eat which is gonna take me roughly an hour and then i have five hours to get back which will be 10 o'clock i don't want to be pushing it in the dark i got to get back so um i'm going to bust my butt here get my.
Twig stove going get my supper on eat and then go get back out the just the marathon of the day continues another five hour out back to the campsite so here we go wish me luck i was hopeful i was hoping brought a lemon for the fishies oh that bacon's no good i froze it last.
Night hoping it would do hoping it would do all right if i can it looks bad okay well that's good to know i would just have a snack but i really need to eat a lot to replenish my strength and um yeah i want to stay here for at least an hour i.
Spent five hours getting here so stop digging it's kind of windy so i'm gonna have it down in this fire pit here still still windy so windy down in here come on later in the birch park later in birchbark we can do it i swear.
Yes there we go i was worried there for a minute what are you doing weirdo oh my god heinz pine cones are always great full of resin good source of fuel from the old pig stove look i came in here today paddled.
Here set up camp then paddled down portage paddle portage into piscia quartars here so four fifth for start 425 450 800 800 210 70 800 and now i'm on to burnt island in old woman lake and i've got to go back up to here so it's not as far.
But i left here at like 11 right around here to get here tripper stop dude like what the heck man what is your malfunction crazy crazy crazy just being with you all day all right my food's done trippers is rehydrating right now be done any minute.
Just doing the old staple of spaghetti life spaghetti right doug so hot it's so hot it's not fully rehydrated just trying to hurry man this has been a marathon of a day but it's exactly what i wanted tripper is ko'd right now he's just laying there his eyes are half.
Half closed all right good boy here come so i'm not even gonna i'm gonna try to get out here before the hour's even up i'm gonna it's quarter after three right now i did all that in 15 minutes i'm gonna try and eat and get out of here.
I don't know in a half an hour from now or something like that because i really just don't want to be stuck i should in all honesty what i should have done we slept the night where i was waiting till today tomorrow to do all this start early because i had to drive from home it took me like.
I i didn't get to put until like 10 and then start here till 11. i could have started tomorrow at like seven in the morning or something done the whole thing spent half the day out here or spent spending a couple hours out here swam and then went back but doing it this way i was just i was just pumped to get out.
The dog had a three hour drive in the car like i said what was i going to do sit at the campsite all day and just have him sit there like he needed something to do this was my whole my whole point in coming to do this so and to test him to see how well he can do it he can do pretty good my biggest issue is the fishing which i.
Haven't been able to do much because you saw what he does and he freaks right out and then he won't stop shaking in the canoe like abs i can feel the whole thing like vibrating and it's not he's not scared or anything he's just excited he's super like anxious because like when i'm not.
Fishing he's fine he's not doing that at all he's just laying there lapping up the water relaxing chasing moose oh boy okay he's all jumpy and bugs keep the deer flies keep pestering him he's chasing him and everything this is too much to do in one day if anyone wants to come and do this.
Oh it's i would recommend camping here i'm going back in or staying a few days and going back out i'm glad i'm gonna finish this up quick and get out of here i'm not gonna film much i don't think i'll film anything i killed my whole gopro the whole way here today.
And i got to keep that big camera away in the backpack just in the off chance he helped us beginning of the day i said it was a high likely chance that he would now i say it's a slim chance it's been really good for not moving around too much.
But it's not worth it keeping it out that would be a big mistake and all my footage is gone i can't make videos for a while and all that stuff so we've seen it all already on the way in i'm gonna bust my butt to get out of here and i'll meet back up with you guys at camp tonight.
I'm hoping it's not too dark now cross your fingers wish me luck i'll see you in five hours or so oh my goodness what a day well i cruised back here it is 7 30 and i believe i said i left it quarter to five so say it was 7 45 that'd be two hours.
Right it's just over two hours i can't even do it right now my brain is mush i have to eat another supper anyways i made it back in a few hours i was thinking i was going to be pushing it for 9 or 10 and at 7 30. so i'm laughing trippers eyes are closed ah.
It was a success successful day this is exactly what i wanted to do i made to the destination i made it back in good time anyone who's ever got into that lake old woman lake i can appre can probably appreciate the elevation in those portages.
Those are seriously some of the most elevation up and down i've i've ever had on a portage so going there and back back to back was oh not not not a relaxing thing but that's not what the point of this was we've had a few relaxing trips already this year right i'm taking these uh shoes and socks off.
These old dogs gotta bark my last video i was wearing those basque runners or sorry uh boots and these are solomon trail runner boots which are like not gore-tex at all much lighter tighter on my feet the better for this kind of stuff for me it's gonna dry off.
Or sorry they're gonna dry easier they're saturated and i don't care about that right now but no black flies too much today i was able to lose the rhino skin there was a few mosquitoes on the way out nothing too eventful happened he almost hit me not too bad but he's going after the deer flies on the way.
Out more of them in little marshy parts he really doesn't like the fishing pole that's for sure he freaks out he starts crying and shaking now every time otherwise he's totally fine in the canoe so maybe i just have to pick and choose.
When i fish when i take him but we can still work on that too he's much better than when we put in and this is only really his first real canoe trip he's been on in the canoe with me before and you've seen that but this was multiple portaging and yeah i'm gonna go stick my feet in the.
Water i think i'm zonked i am completely wiped out secondsies on the on the supper today boys and girls excuse me that feels good oh boy something poked his nose should have seen him should have seen.
Him with the toads it was quite quite amusing i've never seen so many toads in my life as i did today all sizes too it's hot in the sun here man it's hot there's plenty of burst bar crowd i'll just make some curls so that the wood accepts it better accepts the flame better.
It's a brand new knife so i have to get the feel of it there it is that was the first time it saw wood the first time i ever used it was today on that cheese i'm sure he still had like cleaning stuff on it from making it i should have definitely.
Cleaned it off beforehand like an oily thing silly me so this that's scotch okay come on now it's uh well deserved there's only a little bit in there it's well deserved out here today left roig left right quarter cask.
I'm glad i had that bearable on him when we came up to that moose they gave all the moose all that time uh to hear him all the more time to hear him i don't like the fact that he chased the moose like i said his recall is usually really.
Good but that was uh like an instinct type thing it's weird because i've come across dogs with him in the bush and he uh he runs away so you must have sensed that that thing was like a prey type animal.
Because my fear is if i ever need them in case there's some kind of bear or whatever that i might need help with that he'll bail little does he know that a moose is probably the most dangerous animal in ontario even even considering black bear certain times of the year in the rut.
Anyways you did good buddy you did good good good boy i think he wants some scotch but he's too young probably get rid of this ballet let's get rid of this bell i know you don't like it on you we're on the island here like i said so.
I feel pretty confident leave alone feel pretty confident that uh he's gonna stick around and that there's not really a need for it here perfect that won't go anywhere stable all right today's specialty got some fast and fancy instant rice.
With probably too much water i'm gonna go ahead and throw the old seasoning all over the ground get rid of that all right so here is the what we're going to do to make it our own we got dehydrated vegetables here these are the same ones for my 10 day alone.
Trip get a handful of those bad boys maybe even a couple you know you only live once and then we got some mcsweeney's canadian fine jerky a whole bunch of strips up in that please trippers like what about me.
You didn't go one for him no boy one trip he did pretty good like even for his leg his sore leg didn't block it seemed to bother him too bad he wasn't limping too bad at all if at all i didn't notice him limping that is so that's a good thing oh yeah.
Look at that that's about perfect i think i'm going to put the right amount of water this time oh yeah on point that looks perfect everything looks rehydrated no water bonus that looks really good so.
So i don't know if the black flies are just done for around here or if this is just an awesome campsite but there's none there's actually really no mosquitoes either i assume this is just a super awesome campsite i put some rice on top of it exactly.
Weird he's not going to eat the rice mission accomplished sleeping on my possibles poaches a pillow he's just ko look at that his eyes just rolled in the back of his head it's a quarter after 10 now i'll probably still have to be 11 or so.
It's hard to go to bed when it's still light like this it's nice there's no bugs there's no bugs at all the birds are singing i'm not overly hot or cold i just put socks on there are some mosquitoes around my my legs but.
Nothing for the most part no black flies at all well i hope those of you who can get out are able to get out i feel for you guys in the states it's a crazy you know canada had something crazy happen earlier this year too man it's uh a real big tragedy actually 20 20 man 2020s.
Something else there's been crows around this site the whole time we've been here in the morning now yeah i think my next trip will take my wife out i think when my mom comes up will take my wife out no i i she doesn't want to deal with the bugs at all and i understand that but.
There's nothing there's nothing here at all if we do something similar to this in a similar spot i don't see why there would be bugs some fish would have been nice some fish would have been nice but especially after my last trip with john like i really need to get into some fish.
Now maybe it's just the time of year right now is not great for brook trout anymore uh maybe maybe i should switch on to bass and walleye and plake and stuff like that i never really got into them this year maybe in the fall i'll be able to do a good trip with some brookies.
I did it all for some brookies come on some brookies come on but um anyways yeah we'll get that video up tomorrow hopefully by friday maybe saturday at the very latest hopefully youtube decides to share it with my subscribers this time i was kind of.
Silly when they didn't do that jim and ted baird came over and we did an awesome video and they just kind of suppressed it all everybody's video did bad it didn't make sense but it's weird i guess i'm just rambling now all right i've already hung my food bag up.
Everything's pretty much cleaned up except for my possibles pouch trippers laying on i got this to throw away but uh to put away got one sip left to scotch i might sit here by the fire for a little bit so we'll save that well folks i think that's about it it's.
Time to go to bed and it's almost 11 o'clock triple i gotta move you move your pillow big guy i need to get my headlamp bro i guess this will work uh why not have a headlamp there we go.
Headlamps are the way to go it's not even a comparison between this and a flashlight flashlight is a rudimentary brand new backpacks for my old one do it up tight like it's a belt i can't even use my old one.
Tsc ripped it yeah they did okay that didn't come on buddy let's go to bed come on come on oh go tripper go on good boy go come on man get in there you're waiting for.
