Constructing a Castle within the Woods-Gigantic Snowfall!, Bushcraft Initiatives, Making ready for our Overnighter
#joerobinet #bushcraft #wintercamping MERCH HERE! https://www.bunkerbranding.com/pages/joe-robinet
Join Tripper and I out in the snow at the fort in the woods.
We work on some bushcraft projects and prepare for our overnighter.
We cook bacon and eggs on the fire and have a great day out in the huge snowfall.
Are you doing Wow she's sagging Bob sagging huh maybe that snow buildup on the rope oh how you guys doing Joe here I'm with trip over backhoe at the Fort it's snow quite a bit since the last time you guys have seen me especially here I think this is the most substantial snow at the.
Fort that you have seen this year or this winter I was concerned we had an ice we had a slush storm everything turned to ice I was really concerned about the tarp what would have happened I can feel that there is ice underneath and I'll show you that here when I when I fix it all up let's walk her on the back I was really.
Concerned about it caving in and breaking the the tarp it looks like it's okay and inside looks dry and there's no snow today I have a couple projects I want to do yeah should we productive day so it's negative fight there's a rope there it's negative five degrees Celsius.
Outside right now and I forgot my gloves at home it was a very hectic morning getting out of the house and the kid off to school the wife off to the doctor's appointment dog all that stuff I forgot my gloves but that's okay we will build a fire and we will be fine okay well snow has not punched through the slush has not punched through nor.
Has the ice which is all very good signs what do you think dog oh yeah we got to get this cleaned off and fixed up I always have like three pairs of gloves in my car at my truck but I took it in to get it fixed at the dealership I took all my stuff out anyways this is all ice I'm surprised this hasn't given given weight yet so it's just a thin layer ice.
It's still alright let's do this okay mostly God stubborn ice okay no this is real saggy and you can see that but the beauty of the way I set it up is that I can recoup retightening it and it's not going to ever I don't think it's going to ever break especially.
Seeing after how it's acting with all this weight on it is that taut line hitch so when the weight comes on here it pulls it just loosens instead of pulling out the grommet will go tighten this up dog is full of snow yep so look you can see again taut line hitch how it's tied and showing that a million times.
Okay so I just gonna pull on this and it's gonna tighten up I want to show you the effect it has on the tarp what I can't pull this side any higher cuz it doesn't not stopping it I'm gonna switch this piece out for a better longer one piece there's three pieces of cord going across to make that distance anyway it's up enough right now.
Once I tighten that rope even higher but I do want to get a fire going with these hands hands too cold and too cold all right I want to get my backpack up off the ground I've wanted to do this for a while make a proper hook for it so that's what we're gonna do before we do anything else I know I said I want to get fire but that can wait a minute so I.
Want to take the finished part you can see here how like there can be a potential hook or a V or a Y so what I'm gonna do is cut it how tall I want it right about here there's a there's a bend in the wood so I'll cut it before that right and that'll be a long strong piece and then I just need a little hook part for the other piece so we'll cut it.
Shorter so that it has more strength to it all right and then the bag will hang right at the V at the notch and then for the where you cut it underneath you want to cut it right right very close to the bottom of the of the knot don't have to but it looks better that way all right now I'm gonna try to carve down the back or split down the back a little bit to.
Make it flush or actually I could put it in a crack in a crack of the the logs I'll show you what I mean here all right nice and strong so we can hold the weight of the backpack I believe I'll put a notch on it so that the Rope can hold on better but if I do that we put a rope through there bringing around here yeah that's fine and then.
This can sit in the crack it's kind of cool there we put up a little bit higher so my bag is yeah I'll put up much higher so my bags accessible okay let's get a little notch carved into this hang using a a a forge nomad pretty nice piece I'm going to put the notch almost at the top all the notches gonna do is.
Gonna stop the paracord from running up obviously it doesn't have to be anything substantial luckily I've kept my spirit cord inside pocket so it's easy to easy to access let's go for a darker color always have pieces of paracord always tied together crazy fashions you know when you're done a trip you don't really care to undo it.
So much okay that's plenty long let's go do this I'm thinking right about here that way when it hangs I'll still be plenty off the ground and be easily accessed it's not even gonna reach it look at that no I have to do something else if I put a bigger notch in there should be okay or if I just put it against the.
I just put it against the log I should be fine too actually that's what I'll do here she goes maiden voyage perfect all right cool things are shaping up I can do a couple more of those it doesn't have to be that crazy I could have just super simple Canadian Jam on that but I tied it with overhand knots I can take.
That off whenever I want now got my pot our my frying pan here some people told me not to leave it out here it will rust and it certainly did but it was already over here what my god well and nope no worries I will boil some water with that in there and scrub it out before I use it today tripper I want to lay this blanket down here for you big guy.
Alright little dry hands aren't doing so bad so you know we doing the camera you guys know that uh I'm not your typical YouTube we're always saying smash that like button make sure you subscribe all that fun stuff I have done some stuff like that in the past well you haven't seen or heard me say that in a long time and I would like to take this.

That's all my schpeel is done I'm gonna make up some shavings and stuff and grab some twigs and get a fire going here I know I keep saying that but I'm actually going to do it other things that want to do today build a substantial bed because the next time I go here we are camping I know I said that last time it just hasn't hasn't happened.
Yet but the next time we do get out here we are camping rivers got his whole setup from uijik will usually queue outdoors he's got his sleeping pad he's got his top quilt so we'll probably drop the plastic down here make it one nice and warm here for him and myself should be a fun time but until then I want to have everything ready I want to get.
Stuff ready for then well build that bed might see Boyd putting the plastic down but yeah just gonna hang out do a couple little projects like I said done that bag hook was one of them I'll make up a couple more this part sorry this cute come upon this frying pan is just holding on by a nub here so I'll make one for that tripperz just destroying.
This okay we got uh got some bacon and eggs out of duck eggs and very very thick bacon it's it's becoming a meme right I'm just cooking bacon eggs in the woods I know that I see that it's a mean but you know I like to do it and I'm gonna do it for 15 years I ain't gonna stop now boots are very big what's up big guy dry.
Enough don't take too much of my firewood man need a hang right here - yeah okay so keep everything where I know what's going to be yeah oh be ideal you got this piece of hardwood looks.
Like maple I'm hoping it's dry on the inside it seems to me yeah make some shavings go to that stuff and some nice curls this is definitely not necessary I could just go get some birch bark but okay I've got my prep all laid out I've got some feather sticks some thin good dry fire-starting pieces got handful of shavings I've got some.
Thin dry twigs some fuel pieces I will have to get more firewood that's fine I'll just keep the fire going throughout the day let's get this guy going it's got my hidden Woodsman de-rocker so I've been using my hidden woods Impossibles poach inside here matches stay back booty.
twigs and everything on there right away feather sticks to go on nice it's a good start okay okay see ya crazy hey hey calm down so just trying to clean up a bit so I can make my bed figure out how how deep I'm gonna go probably I won't go right to the back wall here's the back wall.
And then this log is maybe I don't know four or five inches in from that back wall so maybe start the bed here that way I have plenty of room in case I need rip off ever no corner go on what go over there dude I can't even pet him without thinking like it's on you know yeah so I'll start it there and maybe I'll come out to like here I have a nice.
Big wet wide bed and then that way in case he wants to get on top with me he can do so you can see with the foot and then like it said I'm sitting out here I'm still sit so bo farther I can sit higher taller people can sit in here and then I'll still have a decent amount of room up in front that I can put a chair do whatever hang out in here.
Can be protected once you go on your on your loss sit down buddy don't you go on your on your blanket hey there's stuff you go on to make it never leaves on that anyway I don't know why every library experiences showing me his back there so I think I'm gonna not use these big log ones they are gonna be useful still for.
Other things that cut them there's a lot of work so we'll keep them in order to get it less tippy I want to use smaller pieces I will recreate that bed that I did on my super shelter field where I tied it all together worked really well so in keeping with what I said we'll start there so I got his blanket there we've.
Been talking about this right dude found his bone from last time the one he wanted nothing to do with underneath the snow he's laying oh now he's running you know a over there come get your bone and come good boy no trip come here come get your boy to come please get your bone to come here I'm laying at home.
Whoo snowy okay well you can't be that cold right so okay I'm just gonna let you do you seem to be all right yep actually all right is the wrong water you seem to be dog dog autumn call some dog dog all the time do dog wakes up first thing she says do look in the middle of her see her sleeping while she's sleeping talking oh dude oh she.
Loves this thing she loves them I got a measure now major hey Kyle hi Sheree I'm glad I got this fire going some warmth and feeling back into my clean fingers every now and then all right measure and sniff trip where are you there you go man that wind keeps kicking up blowing all that snow uh that is.
Crazy so I caught up a couple pieces just to see and lo and behold they're not going to fit the length weight is - it's sandwiched so I think I might scratch the idea of making the bed the same way as the super shelter bed and possibly depending on how high I can get it I can probably do it however I wanted with these people have enough pieces.
Here I can cut them in half or in thirds or leave them whole however high I want to get and I think I can sandwich I can cut this a bit sandwich it in against the wall I'm against both walls and then put this underneath like three of them underneath for support on the front and back and then I can put I can tie other pieces on top and then go one more on.
Top of there so that with long poles so that or even just middle poles so I can lay my pad on there whatever the case may be let's try that let's try that I'm excited with this idea I don't have to cut half as many poles this way okay so I want to do this so that it's still going to fit tight and I want it to be.
Roughly hey see this is far enough I think here honey far I sit just so that my heads I don't want to go down too far at all I don't want to cut too much off right away either so stir it a little bit okay actually alright take some more off we'll see this looks like it's gonna be way too.
Tall yeah oh wait too tall I have to cut a little bit more off i think i want to mess up the wall either hole boys and girls it'll not work out this might work out you know what I can do is probably dig a knee a little bit if the ground it's not too frozen dig a little bit underneath this log make a depression and come down.
A little bit more from that but like as it is this is solid and I say there's nothing holding up the other side is it guys um now you can see here but you're hunched like that oh yeah and she'd probably come down some I really don't want to cut that big blog it's gonna be awkward I have to brace it with something to tripperz on.
To something he's running around smelling maybe a squirrel he's looking up in the trees and stuff it's good I'm glad I like him to go run around and be a dog but I also like to see where it is good stay close run around away from me I wonder if I mentioned this snow falling like a lot a lot oh look what we got going on dog on the dog bed snow in.
The lens I started and then I had an even better idea selling multiple logs that size I can basically just hammer this down to the size or the height that I want and then use smaller around logs to put underneath it there's no need to put these big ones it's already really stable.
I swear anyway that's probably a good height there I'm not I'm not hitting that top too much my knees are at a decent angle and again this is mainly from sleeping in not sitting so if that's good there make sure it's level it does look a little low on the right side if you have to get some supports.
Underneath also holding a hammer down too far why are you doing this to your wool blanket tripper I can't wait to see when you list that top quilt oh man there's no you good it's a weird thing you're doing right now I'll tell you that you look guilty it looks suspicious bud well you're.
Doing fine it's like a $200 wool blanket okay so but I'm gonna measure roughly or I need it to be and then I can dig down a bit that helped sir wind is crazy how does that lock looks pretty cool hi on the left still but I plan on hammering it down to touch to get the.
Peg in let's try that now so I want to bring it down some also want to put it near the end so instead of cutting it right at the cus I'm gonna cut it a touch long will be barking that buddy come here trip so nothing then all right love you too okay okay.
And I want to put it too close to that groove I just created with that other piece there okay now that's got a definitely okay anyway let's check it out well it's definitely sturdy we're gonna for you could sit here if you had it too tall enough I mean so we're gonna do the same for the back and then there's got.
To be again like I keep saying like that and that's just the frame that's just two logs really I got a tie on the top it should be underneath - that's the problem now is if I tie the cross pieces on the top then I have to put big logs going through the whole way and there's gonna be an extra little bit up off the ground.
I'm gonna gain height that way as if I could put it underneath somehow I could I would have to put up another two more prop pieces that's what I'll do so behind these prop pieces no that's not gonna work yeah okay they'll be shorter they'll be shorter prop pieces and then there'll be a piece that goes across this way that gets propped up underneath.
This log behind yep that makes sense I'll put four four pulp corners and then I'll tie the whole thing together that's what I'll do yep okay and then then I'll lay thin twigs or sorry thin thin logs or branches or whatever the case may be after after what I have finished doing it on top of that and.
They won't be sitting on top of here it'll be starting underneath here and become either coming even with this or hanging a little bit below and this will be creating like an edge for me on either side okay that works it's a little bit more work but I'm cutting down way less trees to do it with especially if I don't use logs for my.
Bed if I just use the tops of the trees that I've used and then some thin saplings and things like that I can lay that foam that I have over here are on that along with some boughs or my sleeping pad wherever whatever I feel like doing different different camps are different I want to do different things only once.
Don't fool me again hey fool okay go get to the back I'll catch up with you guys after it's done yes always dude I don't understand what you're doing that so he's gonna like get on top everybody's not just throwing it around.
Nobody when you do on hey can you get out come on alright I'm safe to say that that can go there with a log in between something like this obviously it's not in there yet well anyways something like this here and mirrored on the other side right and then all the logs can kind of just go boom boom boom.
In there yeah alrighty and again like this at a million times this is going to be all Canadian jam knotted together so because I can see right now as I'm moving it around this is kind of janky it's tight in here tight in here right now okay anyways keep going I might uh I might stop for lunch I'm pretty hungry.
It's gotta be lunchtime I'm afraid going back up the grill on cleaning it off it's cooking pretty soon I have been messing around I've still been messing around with this trying to get it exactly right taking a lot of tweaking but it seems to be tight now I want it.
Hey buddy you all right you gonna be good one for a hike a couple minutes ago after he laid here originally oh yeah are you doing all right you're doing already warmed him up a bit I know I know I know I know oh look look my snow has melted buddy there's no here's no cheat later ah Oh Dumbo.
Good boy ah oh I mean you just want something weird tweaks money good boy good boy hold on hey what's up bud over there for a minute there you go bud what where come come bring your toy come Wow Wow this is happening oh my goodness.
Snowmageddon it's boiling that's good I cannot just scrape out Ross that doesn't work hmm oh yeah that's going off alright she's cleaned up pretty good I'll put some bacon here to fatten it up grease it up this is really thick bacon I'm gonna cook the rest of it right on the grill but again like I said on a grease this.
Pan up pretty good some fierce grease yourself players all right first bacon mmm tossed irony very good no buddy you go it's hot be careful okay all right we got these big old duck eggs Wow they tough well on the froze it him a little on the Shelley side in there alright one down.
Yolks and the duck eggs are much bigger and the whites are much smaller but bam son look at that perfect show Wow I was good somehow people with that made my day right there any trip I'm gonna keep the more cooked pieces of bacon and give him in this case the the burnt part of you'll not hole one dude are you serious right now all right.
Mmm soft it's a little bit runny very cool dab some of that up my bake home oh look at that it's it's like turducken thingy egg they could yep hmm oh really good duck I'd use for the whim very pleased with that Underhill his if his is done more I can get old here but no hope to go to him.
Out there on the snow maybe not comprises golf it Nick gulp it down we're out there there you go oh boy here have some yoke off my fingers - oh good boy let me know hey bacon is super smoky it's very tasty nobody know he still has to learn what's his and what's mine or.
Otherwise you have to learn not to take things out of my hand wait wait okay good boy good job that's all she wrote buddy that was good very good all right uh-huh you make up some tea I'm pretty cold are you doing you doing all right or what I might have to bail pretty soon I don't know he was shivering when I was.
Cooking but it might have been out of excitement he does that sometimes as well it's just the breed okay get some tea yard yeah it just looks crazy out here right now with the Sun snow falling it's really cool anybody big clumps of snow keep it in this.
Therefore it sounds very loud it's frightening startled burn off the tag my my teeth so it's gonna be fishing for t-bag fishing for t-bag here real quick so I got the other side done as well it's all far away you could probably see it from that frame I think we'll get ot here somebody may be right I do want to finish the bed off before I get out of.
Here today I feel like I've accomplished a little bit more what did we do we hung up that pot hook we cleaned out this area we revamp to the bed got more logs if I go get to for more maybe take down two more trees I can finish this up a little bit too short on the head just for comfort it's fine gonna be perfect size for.
Perfect height for sleeping keeping it with a sleeping bag a lofty sleeping bag I'm totally cool I'll be the next trip out here hang a sheet of plastic big old fire in front dog can sleep here I'll make a big bed for him right with you soon pad is quilt you're okay yeah I got to get out of here.
Oh big boy big boy is quilt maybe I'll get up some booties his coat you might need some booties for his feet he's okay drives to off of one tree pre-measured yeah okay we're all on the short side okay oh oh oh come on how did I pull that off that sucks well I got one off that tree then yeah okay well lesson learned this.
Will be my measuring stick and I know I have to go like half a foot longer than this almost flip this one around alternate them they it's so loose over there okay that's you bad so push down okay take a boy you ready to go yeah I do have to get out of here get him out here get get him or ya can tell he's not really feeling it anymore.
He doesn't really want to be over here so I'm gonna get him home I don't mind not having completed the bed I've got enough done on it came up with the idea got enough done on it I feel pretty good about I know what I needs to do next time I really am glad I came over here and prepared for the over later I didn't expect him to react this.
Way I think it's only negative 4 & 5 200 wasn't even fired what do I look here must have warmed up a bit the Sun is out and tonight it's gonna get down to negative 10 so maybe I try it on a night that world only gets down me down to negative 5 or something like that if I have any of those left many of those nights left yeah oh yeah he shivered.
Okay anyways glad I came over here figured all this stuff out with the dog with the bed I don't have much to do next time I do know for sure that I have to keep him warm with his bed with a sheet of plastic the big fire plenty underneath him putting on top of him to keep him warm up camp with him you guys have seen that this is just.
Gonna be the coldest and and after being out here all day in the cold he's running around his stuff he needs to come out of that into a warm place so we'll make this into a super shelter it's the type thing with the plastic cold tea I'm glad I made the bed this way now I won't be able to have all this storage underneath right if I were to.
Have made the bed the same way that I made the the super shelter bed there be crisscross logs all underneath that and right there I have over a foot of space in between here and here plant and plenty more than a foot to store all my stuff so that's gonna be great tiny home style utilize the space that you do have put all our stuff away our new storage.
Container I think I'm gonna leave my green tarp out here as well I was going to make up another I had a plans of thoughts and making up another wall there if it was windy but there's no need but next time if it is or can't vote here doesn't hurt to have an extra one of those kicking around police is.
Becoming very home-like and enjoying it I know you guys are liking the videos too so I'm happy too happy to see that and happy to continue to come out here and do these I hope they don't hear a while well last oh I saw my AXA wrote where I was getting the firewood there that the logs here all right come with me that's.
I've had some pretty fun trips with cool people past couple times then I built that that fun super shelter that was that was awesome doing that but now back at the fort christmas is coming up soon call him buddy so I might take a week off there but other than that I do have plans to go to Michigan and meet up with some ham occurs and see if I can stay.
Warm in a hammock in like negative whatever 10 to 20 degrees Celsius weather in the u p of michigan so that'll be fine oops so that'll be fun I'm sure I'll take you guys with me alright guys thanks for watching once again I want to do it to you please don't forget hit that Bell notification if you haven't check out my merchandise.
