NO TENT Iciness Camping & Backpacking – Hiking & Camping in Snow
Luke and nate here with the outdoor boys youtube channel and we're here in the white mountains of new hampshire and it is a balmy 18 degrees fahrenheit and we are going to do some serious hiking and winter camping you ready nate yeah all right let's do this.
Yeah i would make a good camp spot too wouldn't it oh that's cool the guys what do you think nathan is this cool oh we need to find a little cave like that but one without water going through.
It it's been fun but it's time to leave the trail behind i mean this isn't a bad spot we can clear away the snow and put the tarp it'd be small but uh that's not a bad spot to consider we'll look around a little bit if we don't.
Find something better we can come back to that the snow's not too deep but it's really good we got our gators on even a little bit of snow down your boots will melt and get your feet soaking wet and frozen oh this is birch bark and it's really good fire starter.
Oh i see a big rock we could build a shelter up against this rock we'd have water nearby yeah look at that that's pretty cozy yeah it wouldn't take much to build a nice spot oh lots of dead wood around that's good hi daddy hi bud do we camp here all right we gotta kind of test the spot out make.
Sure it's comfortable oh it's a little lumpy i'm not gonna lie but it's better than most that okay all right all right daddy all right well now i've got to make a hot tent using only this tarp so we'll see how.
That goes that'll keep the chimney from melting the tarp right there well it's pretty cozy in here this this is going to work out pretty well i i need to do a few things to secure this tarp get a little bit more out of my way i need to shove my bag down there to.
Plug up that hole but i am worried that if i fire up that stove it's going to start melting the ice and snow all on this wall i don't want it dripping down onto me so i think i might fire that up first and see if the water runs down the rock.
Or if it drips we're gonna need to get a lot of firewood luckily there's a lot of dead wood around that'll do good.
well it's getting dark quickly and the sun's about to set and i have spent the last three hours cutting firewood and i think i have plenty uh my brain's still in alaska mode where the sun sets at 3 30 p.m and comes up at 10 30 a.m so you need a ton of firewood to make it.
Through the night here in new england it's not that bad so i probably have way more firewood than i need but nathan's been sleeping and taking a little bit of a nap which makes me happy here i'm gonna get the the tent all warm and get some food made and i'm gonna wake him up all right i've got a cotton ball and i.
Put some petroleum jelly on it and uh we're gonna light this sucker on fire and uh it light very well chimney seems to be working good tarp looks like it's in good shape excellent this water's so clean i doubt there's.
Anything wrong with it but we're gonna boil it anyways my drinking bottles i'm going to keep them right here near the stove so they don't freeze tonight say nathan nathan buddy nathan do you want cup of noodles yeah hey buddy you have a good nap.
All right here we go let's grab it with the handle it's it's hot just whatever you do you cannot spill it in your bed that tastes good bud good my wood hasn't been lighting as good as i'd hoped because it's all very cold and a little bit wet so i'm.
Putting it up here and letting it dry out once i need some wood and shove it in it lights a lot better yeah chicken teriyaki that that tastes good yeah be real careful oh that's good hot chocolate yep it's right now so you're still.
Hungry i have a snack bag for just such an issue now we have some halloween candy we have giant marshmallows strawberry and vanilla well so far i've been lucky and there's been no dripping on me there's a few places where water is running down the.
Rock but it's not dripping on me so i think it's safe to pull out my sleeping bag my feet get really cold in my bag so i've got these down booties and they are really really good at keeping my feet warm we got a bunch of these adhesive hand warmers i don't think nathan needs them.
Because he's got a great sleeping bag mine's a little light for this weather so i am going to load up on hand warmers they say these things last 12 hours but i've had them last much longer i've had boys wear them for 24 hours and they're still really warm oh that feels nice.
Well it's only about seven o'clock and nathan had a pretty long nap so i promised him we'd watch some tv shows on my phone and we're just gonna snuggle up all warm in our sleeping bags and hang out together for a little bit i'm gonna keep this fire going and we'll see it's supposed to get really.
Cold tonight it was a high in the 20s today and the low is probably going to be in the single digits got a little bit of snow last night good to see smoke coming out of that thing oh i really should have brought a pee.
Bottle i hate getting out to go to the bathroom oh excuse me all right it's breakfast time we got biscuits and gravy freeze-dried hey nathan you sleep well yeah good all right we've got some breakfast marshmallows.
What do you think david is that a perfect marshmallow yep there you go breakfast marshmallows well we've done a lot of winter camping with these two sleeping bags and i gotta tell you i really like nathan's feathered friends makes this it's the negative 25 plover it's the women's bag.
And i just had them shorten it so that it fits nathan and it has just been so awesome man he doesn't need hand warmers he just does when it's zero degrees out he is so toasty this is a true negative 25 bag and it's got a waterproof shell this north face inferno i'm not quite as happy with.
It's a really comfortable bag and it moves with you really well and i like the zippers up the chest instead of the side makes a lot easier to get in and out of but this is not a negative 20 bag at best it's a zero degree bag and the way it's built the down shifts around a lot when you stuff it in the.
Stuff sack like right here i've got no insulation i mean this is just fabric there is no feathers here then right here i've got a ton of feathers and so you wake up all night with like weird patches of your body really cold like you know right in your lower back or your butt.
Your thighs so i like a lot of things about this north face inferno but it's just not that warm i think i'm gonna go order one of these for me when we get home do you like it nathan i love it i love it i love i love it so much you ready to get out of your sleeping.
Bag and get dressed well i'm not in love with the idea of getting out of my sleeping bag i am excited for the hike back though we're not just gonna backtrack the way we came we're gonna go a different route and uh we're gonna hike past the gorge and some waterfalls and see some pretty.
Cool scenery so i'm looking forward to that but first i need to get up and get packed oh oh no i stacked my boots up on my sleeping bag last night look what happened oh oh i gotta go out there without shoes and go get them and dry them off gonna use my clown shoes.
That looks cold i like that you can go out in the snow with these booties the bottom's waterproof and there's no tread so it doesn't track snow back into the tent uh it's taken down the tarp and the tarp fell onto the stove for just a second and burned a hole right in it.
Oh this was a fun campsite this turned out a lot better than i expected but uh we got a really fun return hike we're gonna go past some waterfalls and see some other stuff i'm excited you ready nate yeah let's do it i'll follow you i swear that backpack's bigger than you are nathan well right now me and my.

That you ready to go downhill nate we're gonna i killed david are you okay you're still gonna go ahead and run downhill yeah even though you've crashed twice aren't you we don't learn our lessons oh we don't learn our lesson.
At least i didn't do that one oh careful you don't tear your pants whoa look at that look at that that's cool yeah we gotta hike all the way around yeah look at this then check out these beams they're hand hewed these are cut with an axe oh man that's cool.
