Little Camper Winter Camp – Overlanding in Snow for 2 Nights with Contemporary Buddy.
Good boy hey folks how are you Joe and Wolfie here we just met up with Buddy Joel for the first time Joel tromble and he's got a homemade camper like I do he actually made his own though and his is a little bit bigger than mine we're up somewhere near Elliot Lake.
Driving down the back road looking for a spot to camp we're going to stay out for a couple days got some good food to cook and I'll show you around Joel's camper have a big bonfire and uh have a good.
Time I've stopped three times now for you Wolfie to use the restroom and you have refused this must be the spot up bad eh explore some more we could do that come say hi to the video you don't mind right no no man last here all right guys say hi to Joel hey.
Everyone what's your uh YouTube channel name that's just my name Joel tromble nice yeah so uh what have we decided here well this is definitely option a uh but we're going to continue doing some exploring and uh see if we can get nice spot for the trucks and trailers there we go let we go this is Joel's slick setup they made himself we check it out.
Later on all right see you Joel all right wo it's just kind of close to the road here and we got Wolfie like I got a tiot for him but it'd be nice to have him off leash and just be able to run around without too much concern so we'll go check it out it is Friday there could be some people here who.
Knows this looks like a good spot here m oh the water's water's open here oh otter I just saw otter go down nice nice.
Wait wait okay good boy hey boy pretty slick little spot we got here I'm happy with it got my truck nice and tight nice and tight.
Wolfie's going to have to sleep under my bed or next to me here which will be fine he likes to sleep under my bed at home anyways carpet clean and give wolf to something to sleep on int yeah I don't got a good wide lens on here at all all right Joel why don't.
You tell us a little bit about this baby uh so this is the uh Chuck box is what I've claimed it um and it's a 5x8 cargo trailer that I outfitted to be uh I like to call it the ultimate overlanding uh ice shack and camper Extravaganza um I kind of designed it to try to do everything and or I guess kind of be like a Swiss army knife um it's.
Not the best at everything but at least it kind of does everything I needed to um yeah it's super insulated it's got a heater on it uh solar offgrade um I use this for ice fishing in the winter I use it for camping in the summer or I guess Four Seasons you said you can fit your whole family sleeping.
In there yeah can fit my whole family in here um or I can fold everything away and use it as a cargo trailer um it's uh yeah I try to make it as versatile as possible because I've owned like RVS or campers before and like six months of the year it's just sits in the driveway and it just takes up space so I tried to build something that you know even if I.
Have to go to the hardware store to buy some materials I can just throw it in here and and at least use it um and yeah it's uh it's on YouTube and I mean yeah he's got good views on that on the his build videos he's got you got build videos yeah yeah I got I got I don't know 30 odd build videos and in a few walk around videos um the walk around.
Video is doing pretty good too um yeah I mean honestly it's like there's more information in those videos I talk about now but yeah oh it's sck it gets used it gets used a lot like I have I've pled probably oh jeez I don't know uh I'd say 30,000 km of this thing makesense um it's 3 years old and single axle is doing fine single axle doing fine that's.
A stock 4in drop axle and I've taken this thing down things that it probably shouldn't have gone um and yeah like it gets used it's not uh you know the perfect thing but uh and I know the things I would do differently right um it was a learning experience and uh you did it for a university project yeah I uh I guess I.
Yeah the whole thing started as as my um thesis for my massive architecture and uh basically I was I was looking at researching and exploring how we move and use the land in Northern Ontario as uh Believe It or Not 95% of the land in Northern Ontario is Crown Land you know not of all of it is accessible but that's that's an insane percentage um so.
I wanted to build something that basically get me through those spots and uh you know basically meet the the demands of my lifestyle good boy go yeah mus we to iner husky.
Bud hey good boy what you got is that drool that drool hanging from you here you go boy dude sometimes he'll like roll and poop and like oh yeah yeah do just come roll up and like come into my like Camp bed or whatever thanks got sprayed by Skunk yet what's that has you got sprayed by Skunk yet no we've had that.
Happen twice last summer got one summer guy three times yeah and she and I'm in a mistake of in the house and she's all proud of herself she's like I scared that black Kitty away I'm like oh and then she's like falling around in our carpet and stuff and like the worst thing to do is to like get them wet put them in the bath.
The water brings it out which is exactly what I did yeah right cuz I didn't know yeah of course right and she's like jumping out of the bath soaking wet smelling dude we had like we couldn't even sleep at night so bad yeah man when it's real bad it's almost like got this garlicky smell to it too he got it right in the face right in the mouth he's so.
Close to it and he's like foaming and everything and not none of those three times were we at home so we had to put them in the car to get home yeah that's bad yeah my father-in-law who's a a character thought he was going to catch a baby skunk keep for a pet yeah yeah yeah that's.
Cool nice well I'm going to sit in here for a minute and try to get warm I'm pretty cold smell all the dust and hair burning off of that so we got the Buddy Heater in here it's doing really good the uh the electric heaters tend to eat up the battery quickly so the Buddy Heater on.
The propane and then I can use that propane on my stove as well Wolfie's just gone he uh we're on a road like a back country road so he has the whole road to explore so he's taking advantage of that that's fine but I will tie him up once it gets dark we're going have to start a fire pretty soon it's cold out there I had to come in and get.
Warm but this is doing its job very well well better back go back out there and be social and try to find my dog this will be a good setup for both of us sure he'll like to sleep underneath the bed here okay oh hey bud there he is hey good.
Boy you hear him like he wants me to pet his ass that's what he's doing there you go boy oh butt scratch oh big boy I swore I would never get a hug.
Husky and uh if he was if he was full husky it'd probably be still the case but the shepherd helps yeah see this goofball what are you doing you like the snow hey bud I sitting there what's that the whole time I'm.
Sitting there record a single thing oh no every time every time you got to push the record button dude it's like the main of my existence it's like I don't check the little red buttons going problems with being trying to be a YouTuber yeah the best I'm record you got to hit that button.
Man I'm surpris there's not more people out here like it's a Friday yeah I know it's kind of cold but well cuz deer season rifle just finished done yeah yeah that's the C that's like the big yeah but uh uh B opens now right muzzle loer muzzle loer and bow yeah and bird and all that are open but that's not that's not a driving Factor yeah all.

Americans say it it'll make a turn well we're in the trailer for tonight it's nice and warm in here it's probably about ne8 outside Celsius and here it's nice and toasty I'll be able to sorry about that camera keeps dying I'll be able to lose uh my hat and stuff very soon we're going to be going to bed it's about 9:30 like I.
Said we got Mr Wolfie down here just living his best freaking life loving it under the bed which is perfect for him can fit two or three of him under there with me up on here so it's a good time I'm glad I came up and met met uh Joel he's a good guy uh fun to be around so that's always good all right we'll see you guys in the.
Morning good morning folks it's bright slept real good it's like almost 9 probably hey bud what'd you get into what's up here your face hey you dirty boy good boy good boy well how'd your fair pretty good oh.
Yeah oh yeah we burned up all that wood yeah nice look at this Fancy Pants got some coffee on got some double smoked oldfashioned bacon from the butcher as well no peasant breakfast here always end up with Shel at home so let's see what happens.
Here what brand did you say this Blackstone Blackstone yeah is sick I like it it makes me feel like I'm in like a Japanese restaurant you know I just need to learn like the the tricks get your Chopstick skills down yeah and like you ever do that go oh yeah yeah yeah or they flip it up and crack the egg on the side of the.
Thing take how much bacon thanks bro turn not too and there's like a little like drain thing so I just that and you just kind of just come okay like a little catch can yeah yeah it's not too bad like it's kind of.
Annoying but it might be getting so these things I like it it like it comes with an adopter to to run off the little one PB propane tanks but I think that wouldn't be enough I don't know like I feel like you just burn through it so quickly yeah forky oh.
Than almost threw my bacon on the ground hey you have his attention well yeah all the time if I tell him to do something he throws his head back like that in defiance that's wild now temper tantum he's got so much personality on point.
Almost very very good we already walked around we got up and uh hiked down the road found a little old trail no gross no birds at all actually but um Wolfie had a blast and we had a good time hiking and stuff and uh this is our reward uhhuh okay come here.
Bo that egg ax is pretty cool man I I watched a video on it I um I'm I'm going to get it it's not to gimmick like uh it looks legit it is man I beat the crap out of that thing and I keep using it like I actually really enjoy it it's like a like a be more of a beater axe in.
My opinion but it is what it is what's uh are they available yet I H no I don't think yet do you know what their price Point's going to be man I don't know I would assume a couple hundred bucks yeah ah like this saw like I I literally would not we'll never buy another I know they they've really got the market on the saw the those guys in silky but.
Silky it's just two different saws right they told me they were designing it like 5 years ago that yeah well that just shows like they trly Ted it out yeah they don't rush it no those guys are legit nice hardwood all righty I'm going to tie up.
A tripod so we can cook on the Dutch oven we got a cast iron Dutch oven should be lots of fun I like to tie my piece of parac cord to the middle one just attach it couple overhand knots or a constricting knot whatever whatever you feel like then if all three bottoms are relatively near each other so it'll.
Be flat you can start to wrap it around don't need a lot of paracord I only have like a 2 and a2t piece here and then if there's any spots where you think might be loose just wrap them in the Paracord itself on the Paracord itself wraps and fraps we call them got your wraps and you got your frps then I'm just going to tie it.
Off and we're cooking with firewood yeah not bad for afternoon's work okay well we've got our tripod made and our food in there some of it at least our sausages we're doing sausages potatoes and some veggies in there got four.
Sausages four four got old splash of pop in there I'm going to pour some potatoes pour them potatoes how how many fish did you catch uh like all them stay what could you possibly want okay our food's almost done we've.
Got in The Magic Pot we have potatoes carrots green beans brussel sprouts seasoning butter and a little bit of Pop and then underneath that we have our sausages just finishing off right on the coals so they get a little crispy uh but it is like tender tender.
Tender it's falling apart I don't even want to touch it anymore cuz it's so very soft so it should be pretty good actually this can probably come off now and sit on the Rocks these guys will flip oh yeah nice whoa explosion okay well those are done sweet yes.
Please um dirty from before but be fine that's fine see he's slowly melting into the ground no okay good we've reached the Final Destination that looks all right deadly I love this freaking cast iron thing there's so much food that's a lot.
Of ground I can't remember which plate I was using before it doesn't matter okay that Che up Restless bro yeah oh it's soft yeah cheers oh.
Boy oh mhm M oh hot it's very hot it has a certain taste like that's good I might have picked up some of sausage taste yeah that is good oh those are mashed potatoes in form yeah that's season do that you put on.
There is really good that's my favorite it's Low's it's just this red all allpurpose seasoning yeah it it really makes the dish oh that is good good yeah I like it hopefully the sausages are cooked I'm sure they are they look AP yeah oh yeah they.
Done I don't suppose you have any mustard uh no I got that dressing but that's all right do oh yeah had it has mustard in it eh like that's all right I don't want dress it wait a minute yeah got mustard and mayo and then some Mar syrup which all those would work yeah except for a Mayo yeah that's that's true.
