Hey guys how you doing joe and tripper out here in the woods we drove in a couple crazy logging roads big back country roads to get in here and we took our time paddling through two sets of lakes and portaged over into another one i've got a small backpack on me the hidden woodsman dayrock with a wool blanket we're going.
To search for a good spot to set up camp i got a tarp to camp under we'll have to have a fire in front to keep the bugs down we're going to pick wild blueberries spend the night out here camping with each other wondering if there's a better spot over.
Here come on buddy so we're just uh i just pulled up on this like peninsula looking thing uh seems like there's a decent spot back behind me to camp but i figured let's hike down a ways over here.
Hey there he is hey good boy let's see see if we can't find us an even more more better spot and even more decent spot to camp on buddy you're going in the water whoa me too.
Come on i'll pop up good boy these are all blueberries tons of tons of good sized blueberries pretty cool eh so before i trip or tramps them all i have to get myself some but this doesn't look like a great spot.
To me very hilly so we'll keep going going down the shoreline here there's a good rock for jumping but it looks like it just keeps getting thicker over here good water eh water's super deep clear and cold.
Yeah got a couple rocks rocky outcrops but it's looking like the promised land is back where i originally put in so let's go back head back over there and set up camp i got a pretty cool tarp shelter to set up.
And uh get over the sun for a bit going that way keep going let's go this way come on buddy good boy yeah this will do i'll tuck back in here in a little bit.
I have to cut some valves for my mattress i don't have an air mattress or a sleeping pad i mean i have all the gear i need for myself and the dog in this 15 liter ruck for overnight so i'm pretty pleased about that what's up buddy.
I want to pick a lot of these before they get wasted so i got myself a stake in there i also have my fishing pole hoping to catch a trout today if not that's okay i got a steak tripper's got his food.
Like i said i have a wool blanket i got a awesome new axe a new old axe which was my favorite kind of it vintage be a fun night a little handful so far get rid of the leaf nothing more flavorful than wild fruit those little wild strawberries you can.
Find way more flavorful than those juiced up ones you get at the grocery store same thing with these blueberries much smaller than the grocery store but they pack a wallop a wallop of taste it's a nice spot i'm on some crown land it means it's not a park.
It's not owned i can pretty much do what i want here hey bud you want a blueberry let's try here here you like oh no here try another one there's plenty you don't have to sniff with that other one here we go here bud.
Okay trooper there you go good boy starting to look like a real dog eh i got real dog let's dive into the backpack really quick i want to show you just quickly what i brought.
It's not going to take a long time there's not much in there there's not much room really we got a tripper that's for sure all right so again this is my hidden woodsman dayrock i've got a wool blanket attached to the bottom an ax strap to the outside two pocket two pouches.
This is an italian wool blanket i've had for a long time you guys have seen me use it before stick this up in here get the axe out this axe was gifted to me and i don't remember the guy's name off the top of my head but i have it written.
Down so i will tell you in a little bit this is a true temper tommy axe it's really slick it's got the little pry bar on the back of it very nice um there's a council tool handle very nicely aged slick axe very slick axe it's a 19-inch did the leather work on it for me too.
And she's sharp as the dickens so we're gonna have to be careful with tripping around he's no scout you know he hasn't learned his uh stay away from sharp objects thing yet but anyway very very nice axe and i will tell you the name of the guy who made it for me very shortly.
I apologize for not remembering i'm horrible i'm horrible okay so into the meat of the pack we've got a lightweight hammock which is going to come in handy today i want to enjoy hanging in that just lounging i've got a secondary lens so this is a 85 millimeter lens for my.
Nikon camera i got a nice t-bone still half frozen which is good it'll stay good until tonight when i want to eat it or i'll give it to tripper if i catch a fish or we'll share both well that's probably what we'll do share both of them oh you smelled that one did you big guy i got a pouch from the hidden woodsman.
This is a possible's pouch nice and orange bright color i don't know all of the things i have in it but i have things like paracord fillet knife i have a handkerchief some sunscreen some bug spray i've got um my main cord to hang up my tarp fire steel just things like that battery or no a.
Little bit of first aid so that's that's a really handy pouch it comes in like i should show you how this all fits in here actually let's do that so everything was in there the stake was just slid in your lens your hammock your pouch now look that's about it that's the meat of the.
Whole pack i've got this is my tarp this is a etowah tarp i believe yep edible gear from ben's backwoods my little sip i got my grill in the back oh and a book i forgot i brought a book east of superior true wilderness stories so i'll sit in the hammock and read that.
Today and tonight a little grill in the side pouch here there's a little sleeve i've got my silky saw i got my little baby pillow i can't go anywhere without my pillow i've got a little bush chair if i wanted to use it just to take up extra room my toque in case and that's it that's the meat of the.
Pack there a little zipper with my little bit of fishing tackle and some butt cream for me so that's all the main pack right like it's a pretty decent setup actually stuff all this in front this goes in there sideways.
This goes back in this goes back in all this can be slid down the back and all i have left out is my sit pad my stake and my lens pretty slick setup man pretty slick setup these pouches on the outside are what make it doable for this size for an overnighter and the dog for me and the dog i mean.
I don't want to bore you guys with this right off the hob with the gear stuff but it is asked about a lot of times it's interesting when i have a small pack and yeah i'm not going to do a gear video for this for this trip so this will be all in the same same video in the side pouch.
Are integral parts of the camping experience for me i've got my malgene check this out this is the new scout logo titanium 750 mil mug cook kit.
So it's got a bail it's got the scout logo on it etched in there this is titanium got the handles got measurement marks and it's got the little loop on the bale so we'll cook up a pot hook and uh be able to cook rice in here cook oatmeal in here tea.
Um what else do i have that needs to cook in here i don't know other things definitely so i'm excited for that we can boil water it's got this little um spout on top for the steam to come up i'm excited about these these are for sale on the bunker branding website right now we've got this one and we've.
Also got a bigger one a pot that that hits that fits the bush buddy twig stove right in it so very pleased about these very pleased haven't used mine yet i haven't used this one yet at all i had a prototype with no logo on it that i've used this one is brand spanking new.
All right and it nests the nalgene obviously it nests the nalgene nest right inside of it this is just an old like i don't even know what it is not maxpedition but knockoff condor condor water bottle pouch oh i've got a oak spoon that the gentleman who made the axe for me also.
Made so again thank you and we'll give you a shout out real quick here and the other side this is a hidden woodsman pouch and it swallows gear this is a big old one i got tripper's kong trip what's this hey what's this buddy oh it's that one that's a floating kong so i can throw in the water for them.
I've got batteries for my nikon batteries for my gopro which i broke the screen on on the way in and batteries for uh my headlamp just extra stuff i got some biltong somebody sent me this as well thank you very much ingredients beef vinegar salt coriander.
Black pepper pretty good for you some spice some spice some rice spice and rice can't go wrong i got a can of soup that's the other thing i'm going to cook in my in my cup is a can of soup this is a organic lentil soup very good for me what else we got a couple granola bars some oatmeal for the morning.
Bag of trippers dog food so even if we don't catch a fish we could still uh he's still eating good we got the steak and the dog food and then some more so that as you can see that pouch really swallows the gear up very pleased with it if you guys are interested in checking out any of this.
Gear hit up the hiddenwoodsman.com malcolm makes all this stuff in new england it's all american made handmade he's a great guy a good friend and i'm happy to support him and we've been working together for years what are you doing where's your toy you got your toy.
Let's see if he'll jump in the water for it oh big boy drop good leave leave tripper likes his toys hey buddy.
Tripper this side ready oh my goodness gung-ho go and get it there you go swim swim big guy you know how to swim there you are good boy crazy dog and he's off.
See the muscles in his legs oh my goodness look at that he's ripped i got a plane going overhead that's something new i originally thought i would set this little tarp up back in here in the shade um between the tree behind you and this one.
Here but i want to have a fire right in front to keep the bugs down while i'm sleeping tonight i don't have any bug protection and in order to do that i would have to rip out all these blueberries or just burn them and i don't want to do that that's a little invasive a little intrusive.
So i think up here in the sun is going to be better and then i'll just hang out back here in my hammock in the shade tripper's already doing enough damage as it is but uh yeah i think i'll set up up there if possible and then there's no blueberries right there and it's all sand underneath the duck i can just kick.
That away and i'm not concerned about that so let's go check it out you're crazy you're crazy though come come sit good sit uh maybe next time i will probably have to add some paracord to it but if i can.
Get my uh tarp going from that tree to way over here i can just sleep in the middle here it's relatively flat and again it's all sand so it's not not a concern let's try this is some uh reflective cord that i've used forever i got it when kyle.
Gave me my kyle made tarp back years ago and i like to use it because i can have a long piece of it and it doesn't take up as much room or weight as paracord would there's some pre-tied toggles these are old arrow shafts cut down and they make things really easy.
Just going to tie a top line two on the inside one two one on the outside one but bam i think there's a shirt somewhere that says something like that all right that's nice and quick let's see how far this bad boy reaches bad boy see how far this bad boy reaches almost the whole way i can just add a.
Piece of paracord on there it'll be fine oh yeah i forgot i have my swim shorts packed in here too it's perfect um that might do it that piece just might do it like my organized.
Paracord you guys know me by now right i don't do any fancy sheet bend or anything i just do a little overhand together call it good all right we'll do the same thing on this side.
One two on the inside one on the outside and then you can just the benefit of this is you can tighten it easily or loosen it easily i don't need it too tight before i put the tarp on then i can really wrench her down.
Right hoe righto you having fun with that toy buddy glad i brought it so this tarp is not a normal tarp it's already set up and cut like the adirondack wind tarp setup that i really like to use and you guys have.
Seen me my original big video overnight bushcraft camp with my dog i used a normal tarp that set it up in this configuration this one's already set up i think i've only used it once before really so.
We're gonna go corner we're gonna take that that toggle that pre-tied toggle on a prusik and loop it through the tab slide that over we'll find the other corner which is here i'll put that through.
Man that sounds hot okay he's eating blueberries i'll pull it tight obviously this whole setup needs to be raised and that's that's okay i'm glad i put the top line hitch in there we can just.
Do one of these adjust it at the other side too there she goes so now once i tighten it all up should be almost three-sided big enough for the dog and i i can put a little tog let's do that we'll put a toggle in the middle as well.
I'll cut a toggle stick okay i'll break a toggle stick all i'm going to do is loop the cord run it through the middle through the middle tab and then put the stick in there now it'll hold that i'm gonna go cinch this up just grabbing some sticks off the ground.
To stake in the back really quickly glad that the ground oops that the ground is uh has enough substrate on it that i can stick it in because underneath the sand is rocked too right okay it goes in on a 45 that way.
Uh there's enough substrate it's hot it's up for a blueberry break brewberry break a blueberry bread very blueberry there's a lot of deer flies out right now you can see it's starting to take shape and we do this.
See this is all rock here i might have to put a rock on top of this in order to keep it staked in we shall see though that's not so bad the pat the back did pull out this little sucker growth maple is right in my spot here but that's all right we'll work around it.
I gotta get better stakes for the back this one popped out too that's a good stake there there we go it's set up pretty decent but what really makes this thing pop is when you pull out the back tab and you get all this extra room in there so that's what we'll do now there's not really a tree close by to.
Tie it back to i should have should have took that into consideration beforehand but i kind of forgot so yeah we'll tie out from there maybe to that skinny tree and hopefully have enough paracord for that just makes it.
That's good tripper what's good yo okay let's check out the finished product there we have it plenty big for the dog and i crazy dog and i that side slopes down so i'll probably sleep.
Like this dog can be tucked in the corner or behind me even yeah that'll work it's hot it's super hot so now the next thing i have to do is you can see it's down like the duff is very shallow.
And then there's sand right underneath so i'm not concerned i don't really have to clear out too much i will scrape away the pine needles and stuff um but i do need to to get myself a bunch of uh spruce boughs so that i can make a mattress i don't have.
Like i said i don't have a sleeping pad ah oh that was a big bug um ah he got me good i might go swimming i might jump in the lake and cool down for a bit i'm really warm it's one o'clock.
Been here for a couple hours there's no one out here got the whole lake to myself ourselves which is good i might try to find a rock to jump off of see if the dog will follow me hey big guy i'll come in here go boy.
Nope that's it i've got my toy and i'm leaving i want it to be a good step away from my tent the fire my tarp i mean i'm not gonna have an enormous fire by any means just something to keep the bugs down.
Something to cook on uh let's see as soon as i get down it's actually mud like clay here it's damp too the sand's all off that side but totally fine barely any blueberry plants here compared to back in there where i was.
Going to have it there we go there's the sand okay so the gentleman who made the axe for me his name was j lady jim latey not jim lahey l-e-i-g-h-t-y anyone who knows anything about axes knows this is a sweet find an old-school tape axe you can't just get anywhere so thank you very much jim.
Much appreciated buddy it's been nice talking to you in the uh in the messenger let's go use it look at the depth of the grain look at the grain boy i love it back in the woods away from the water i found this decent.
Looks like old balsam fur good firewood nice and dry and shelf in the hotel from this natural check would be good firewood but also so there's another one there on a diagonal but check this out this normally grows right by the water this is labrador tea if you watch my alone series i uh.
I used to drink i i used that to make a bunch of tea i was by myself for those 10 days so that's cool too and then here is the thicker spruce stuff so i can get my bows from back in here there's a lot of just thinner uh smaller spruce out there but this is decent so i can clear off a bunch back.
In here let's give it a considering i've never used this axe before let's chop this balsam first see how she goes i'm sure it'll be great we'll just buck it up into sections that way it's easier for me to carry back always a very good idea to throw the old axe mask this is a lefty.
This is a lefty mask are you a lefty jim always a good idea to throw it in the pocket not just on the ground that's a sharp sharp edge the head's got some heft to it especially for the length of handle but i like that personally all right.
Nice old ship bite's good this is a joy to use a little heavy for one-handed to be honest for a little joe at least okay good news is that wood is dry as a.
Bone a lot of times boston fur when it's dead will mean no good but yeah very cool very cool so because tripper is not used to things out here yet i'll remask it resheath it.
Before i just drop it down to deal with the wood i don't want him busting his nose off it or anything licking it being silly like he is buddy go on there you go.
Not too shabby not too shabby jim all right that's my firewood sorted it's not too bad i could just hold uh yeah that's him wanting me to throw his toy for him i'll use my silky and buck it up or cut.
It up later on or maybe use this depending but uh yeah we'll get that over back to the camp come back for some bows i am very warm i'm very happy to be out here too.
I'm glad i brought that toy for the dog i'm glad he hasn't lost it yet alrighty he's got to be back in here with me it's one good thing about him he sticks right by my side he never wants to go away from me which you can't really ask for more than that.
Okay here we go you got it no you didn't find it did you trip a search search search good good boy should occupy him for a minute.
I got my hammock set up hey buddy you know no you're not coming in anymore you're too big your nails are too sharp um i'm just gonna take a little break here for a minute i'm pretty warm should probably go swimming yeah it's warm.
Tripper's been eating the deerflies buzzing around his head which is kind of funny funny to watch i will bring a hammock on my next canoe trip that's not like a high paced high f uh long distance trip i really missed it on the last one with uh with kyle there we had a lot of downtime and it would have been nice to be able to because.
Like look you can i can set it up in such a fashion where i can just sit like this is a chair basically i can lay down as well rest the back without having to get the the the uh chair out like my actual chair it's nice to be able to lay down very nicely lay down i never want to camp in this you know i mean i'm not.
It's not my thing a hammock is not my type of thing to camping sleeping but here i'm chewing this thing but uh for lounging especially this one it's super lightweight i found this one on my basement i forgot i had it so anyway well i'm sitting here i'll just make up.
A little pot hook i got a piece of maple back in the woods there when i was in there there's not many kicking around but you can see i just cut it so that one of the branches coming off cut that off as a hook part cut the bottom pretty short then i'll leave it about that long and i can make a couple different adjustment sizes so that it i can i can.
Adjust it up and down this will be a nice easy project to do while i'm just sitting here so i put on i i've been having people ask for my uh p.o box for ever since i moved last october i.
Got one a couple months ago and i put up a community post on youtube with the address and i got a i kind of so many people like i got a couple comments like one was like greed will be the downfall of man and like don't you get paid enough from youtube you don't need subscribers sending you stuff it's like.
My one reply to that was yeah i'm going to get rich off of subscriber pictures and paracord bracelets because that's 90 of what i get but that said i appreciate all the stuff and if i can't i can't possibly reply to.
Everyone via private message or comment saying joe what is your p.o box when is you gonna when are you gonna get your po box i need to send you stuff um so i put it on there anyways i'm telling you now that's how jim got my.
My information to send me this axe and i appreciate it and i like it i got a couple other cool really really cool things i got uh something from australia i got a couple shirts for my daughters and a nice alligator bracelet and oh sorry crocodile bracelet and uh magnet a couple really cool things so i really appreciate that i appreciate that thank.
You tripp tripper careful big guy you're gonna knock my camera over silly anyways it's 100 not necessary you do not need to send me anything that is totally fine this is just for the people who already wanted to send me so i had people set wanting to send me stuff.
Since scout passed like um memorial cards and like uh thinking of you type stuff and that those are flooded into so i never put it in a video i will put it in the description of this video if anyone is interested please feel free and if not that's totally fine i'm not asking for anything believe me this is just.
Again for the people who have asked i don't need anything from my subscribers i don't need money from my subscribers via patreon or sponsorships or donations or anything like that i have a lot of gear i don't need any gear but if you do feel the need or have the want then by all means look at the description and the po box.
Will be in there i'm not uh i'm not hurting you know what i mean i don't need anything i'm good my family's good and i appreciate it okay so i'm just making these bird beaks notches in the back and then the plan is i'll have another piece of wood that goes down like this.
And this will hang on here and then the weight of the the billy pot or in this case the titanium cup will pull it down it'll be good this is called the burtonsville rig i've been doing this for years my favorite way to suspend a pot over the fire you got one there.
Which is probably a pretty good height and i'll just make another one up here all you do is make an x with your knife into the wood just make an x and then carve out the bottom three sections of the x.
And leaving the top beak point coming down you can baton it or you can just take your time and cut it away like i am okay there we go i got two then i can raise it or lower it as need be and this is only half of the half of the.
Pot hanger but i can show you the rest after i haven't made it i just grabbed this piece when i was in the woods like i said i'm happy to have tripper out here with me i'm happy to be feeling pretty good for those who don't know i was in toronto for 10 days.
At the doctors at the hospital and i have to go back very soon and get surgery done on the old behind they did give me a couple things that have helped a lot a certain different different kind of cream the nitroglycerin cream that has helped uh tremendously and they.
Also gave me these very strong antacid pills for my stomach i got colonoscopy and endoscope and endoscopy endoscopy endoscopy this way in this way camera boop not sedated because i was by myself in toronto and they wouldn't let me leave after the fact so they did it while i.
Was awake and i'm telling you this way was a lot less painful and intrusive than coming in down through my throat i was gagging and everything my throat's still all raw from it they took biopsies they took biopsies i could feel it they slid this other little.
Um tube down in a secondary hole and i could feel them just pull on the inside my stomach little three or four uh biopsies so that they could take pieces so they could biopsy it and check it out but but all in all like i don't have colitis i don't have crohn's um.
Everything should be fine and these pills have helped help tremendously they found out that my my bile ducts are my i was creating so much stomach acid excuse me that when i was passing it i was wrecking everything so i've been on these pills for maybe a week now and i've noticed a huge.
Improvement which is thank god it's life-saving i'm i'm so so happy about that i think the doctors for finding it the right thing to do um i was begging for a different kind of different kind of surgery and they said if i got that it would wreck me so they're going to do a minimally invasive type thing down there and and they say.
That the downtime is only a couple weeks so i'm i'm excited for that and with that coupled with these pills i i should be on on the right track i've been eating properly for a long time now i just never never fixed itself because the damage was done but i'm feeling good.
And that's that's necessary with tripper and my family and living up here and and continuing on my youtube channel and doing all these things you know last winter i wasn't even able to go out and and do any kind of extended trips and this whole whole leading up to last month a month ago almost today when.
I was with with kyle at woodland caribou i was wrecked i couldn't do much i was do over little overnighters and have to boot home really quick in the morning to take care of myself so anyway feeling good feeling really good and that's i can't be happier about that so.
You gotta take care of yourselves hey oh man tripper's coming along working up to an actual canoe trip with him this today we only can we're only in the canoe for maybe an hour tops between the two lakes that we came into he was okay he was okay at first.
He's trying to chase a dragonfly he got a little uh antsy and i gave him that bone and that that calmed him down too so he's a good boy we've been hiking like crazy if you check out my instagram my instagram handle is joe robin at bushcraft if you check out my instagram there's lots of.
Little videos and pictures of me hiking with tripper and things around the house and stuff like that stacking wood just normal life stuff that i do that i don't film for youtube but yeah things are good everything's good we had family over for about a month.
My my mother-in-law and my niece over so emerald had her best friend to play with it for most of the summer they left two days ago tripper be careful big guy we left two days ago my brother-in-law came down and his family came down and spent some time with us and we had we took them around.
And showed them a lot of stuff and then they drove the mother-in-law and the niece home so yeah back to normal life normal life at home until i have to go back down to toronto for my surgery but.

Oh he's insane he's insane i used to hate it when scout cried like that no i feel lucky if tripper that's the only thing that trippers doing perspective hey all about perspective okay that's a decent enough fire pit there for me.
I could probably integrate one of these rocks into the uh the pot hook if i need to the pot hanger if i need to i might be able to stick it in the ground over here though i like to have my fire pits open on the side that's towards me makes sense there's no need for a full circle.
Just trimming some branches off these trees i'm not taking any trees down from my bed doing a little trim work silky makes it easy i think it's easier could be easier than the axe because these uh these limbs are pretty small their branches are pretty pretty thin so.
Yeah that's my that's my thought anyway gather enough to sit on right now i need to cook lunch up i want to cook that soup my amy's organic soup um and then i think i'm going to go out and try to fish it's not a good time of day.
But it's okay we'll go see oh that's an old beehive look at that old wasp nest it's empty completely well paper wasps now so i'm glad that it's empty not over here hacking backing into it drop.
Drop drop good boy crazy all right i'm gonna save the thinner pieces for the top oh you're just gonna okay yeah you're going to and again it's not that big a deal this time.
For warmth it's more for comfort we'll still do the herringbone pattern kind of taking the thicker pieces and putting them off to the side and crossing the the thinner pieces on the inside gives a little bit of buoyancy and oops it keeps the.
The sharp pieces away from you the thick pieces away from you i do need to build up the head part a little bit because it's a little bit humped in the middle but no big deal tripper you gotta back up you gotta back up homie look at this dog honestly.
What are you doing what are you doing all these little pieces are good to go on top kind of weave them in poking the bigger stick the bigger sides in underneath stuff you've already created i can always get more after like i said.
Right now i'm just kind of trying to get somewhere to sit can't even throw it near my camera because it's just this a breed right just the drive on them is just out of this world so it's like anything that.
That he's focused on nothing else matters it's it's kind of sketchy to be honest with you he's good with the baby i'll give him that he he's very gentle around the baby he jumps over her and doesn't plow her over which is which is always nice she uh.
She growls back at him he does that growl thing about his toys and whatever it's not like an aggressive thing it's just him being like vocal that he wants me to play with him so whenever he does that around her she does it back to him now she's almost one she'll be one at the end of this month crazy crazy right autumn's gonna be one.
At the end of this month time flies time flies especially when you have kids man okay yeah i'll need a little bit more on here but this is a good base these uh these bowels will keep drop it drop these bowels will keep some of the bugs.
Down hopefully he's so he's so much he's so much all the time okay we're gonna get a fire going and cook up this soup so i'm famished i'll give chopper his food uh in the in the boat after i'm done eating when we go fishing okay enough bud enough.
Try to make this as sharp as possible because the ground's kind of sketchy so we'll see how far she goes in make the top of this flat as flat as can be straight across all right should be good so the whole gist.
Is this right here boom or boom still see a good spot here to stab this in yeah okay that seemed great that's that's better than i thought it could have done.
So make sure it's still gonna sit good it's kind of high but that's why you get the second one in all honesty i do need it to be over a bit more it's a little bit too far back so it'll go here.
Yeah that ain't coming out tripper leave it leave it back up buddy thanks super helpful okay right there be perfect i could raise it up if i need to you raise me up so i don't burn on fire.
All right before i get this going i will get my food ready so i can throw it on and possibly cook it all with just the uh oh that's a big old pine beetle be careful careful bite in that one oh his lip is like quivering so much getting this guy he's.
Gonna bite you man wow obsessed with bugs that was one thing scout didn't care about at all okay food time so again amy soups couple good things i like about them those are my swimming shorts bro what are you doing leave those alone.
Take two it's a couple things i like other than the fact that it's good for me it's organic you don't have to add water and it's the old pop top so it's good good and convenient you know it's all organic vegetables and lentils and.
All the good stuff all of the good stuff oh you smell that do you i just look that sharp can all right there we go so we'll just have to light the fire i guess that's that's the main thing right.
I got these uh shavings i got my magnesium slash firesteel probably don't need the magnesium this is from firesteel.com there we go nice and easy as long as tripper doesn't knock this over you should be good to go here.
Scapegoat tripper virgin burn it's probably done or close to being done almost yeah having an adjustment pot or an adjustment loop or whatever you want to call it being able to adjust the height.
Is ideal for sure oh it's hot near that fire man toasty tripper's in the shade somehow there we go a little bit better she's boiling so you can see this pot hanger is very easy to make.
And kind of fun to do oh she's done boy i probably have to let it cool but i imagine not so bad i will feed you soon buddy you've been eating your bone all day though there are raw marrow bone with fat on the outside and marrow on the.
Inside and uh after a while after a while of him chewing on it i'll take it and i'll take a stick or like a butter knife or something i'll scrape it all the marrow out it's got to be good for him bone marrow soup is what's recommended for people these days so.
I'm sure it's good for him he's all sorts of muscular skinny skinny as a day is long like owner like dog that was perfect a little twig fire cook this up in no time fire's gonna die right down just in time for me to go fishing or swimming again i gotta cool down.
After this looking like hot soup on a hot day uh breathing heavy said a big j running around you get a little smile on him doesn't he ko'd good boy all right watch okay.
Okay move over here good boy that's it froggy clean up the pot grab some grass throw the ground on the shore makes a good pot scrubber anything does moss um spruce boughs.
rock sand just get right in here man no problem that's the thing man anytime i move around he gets up and comes with me again it's not a bad thing it'll be even better later on in life he's going in so.
Over here over here good sit no sit or yeah okay that works too there we go that's a big old there he's a nice piece of mirror for him good boy.
So much for the stick let's see i never did anything for you big guy good boy there you go look at that piece bam son that's a good one cleaned it right out buddy.
Clean it right out maybe we'll stick your food in there for the the canoe ride yeah this is happening just binge the phone check it out i honestly didn't throw it down at all it just kind of like fell off my.
Backpack and hit on a rock and shattered so it still is usable for this trip like minimally usable but i'll have to get a new one i use it all on the the that uh stranded series videos so whatever i guess i got some use out of.
It but but the point i'm making is that i'm not going to bring my big camera into the canoe with us just because i still don't trust him to not tip us and if my big camera goes in the water then joe is no longer so i'll do minimal filming in the canoe.
If i get a fish for sure we'll show you but it might have a couple cracks in the screen and that's or in the picture and that's why so i'm warm i'm going to put a different lure on i had a floating x-rap on on the way in and it just doesn't.
Dive half as deep as it needs to this is a warm day it's middle of summer and all the trout are going to be deep so i'll put a bigger spoon on i believe let's look at my let's look at the fishing kit and i'll decide what i'm going to put on these are fishing lures these are fishing lures oh thank you for the kisses thank you.
I love you too big guy hey good boy oh yeah he's very palsy very handsy he likes to paw me in the face doesn't feel good but he means well hold a good boy okay go on oh thank you thank you thank you.
Where's your toy go get it where is it go get your toy i don't have it go get it i need you to back up from this buddy dumb good stay oh man no this isn't for you.
Good boy uh a little clio has always been good for me that's a pretty decent size three quarter ounce other than that i have a deep diver that might work as well but i think i'll put the little cleo on.
Right now and uh try my luck with that we'll bring the whole tackle box out there i should bring my hat too and put on some sunscreen i think this is the floating x-rap i had kyle was raking him in it wasn't caribou on one of these guys it wasn't the same color but same size.
But we're far away from there and there was no brook trout there these are brookies in here supposedly uh specs speckled trout all right so i will say goodbye to this camera for now and then i'll meet back up with you on this camera when i get back but we.
Will bring the gopro like i said he's calmed down which is very good still no fish i've turned around and started paddling back towards camp i hugged the shore the whole way around back to the end and then now i'm cutting straight down the middle controlling.
Oh such luck just yet that's all right i'm not worried about it even if i don't get one it is really hard to paddle with just the weight in the front i can't turn for like me there we go but i think we're gonna go back and have a.
Little nappy poo this guy's tired and i could use a little rest in the hammock maybe i'll read some of my book doesn't sound like too bad of a way to spend an afternoon right i've been back for about an hour i've just been laying in my hammock.
Reading east of superior it's pretty cool there's a bunch of different stories in it about like close calls on canoe trips and hiking trips and stuff all very close to where i i live the first one actually took place just outside of sault ste marie so pretty interesting read.
Tripper's not really calming down too much he's still running around chasing flies and getting drinks of water and stuff he's tried to come into the hammock a couple times with me i moved the hammock over here into the shade because the sun had moved obviously so that spot wasn't too shady anymore.
It's nice over here nice and cool really relaxed oh it's uh 5 30 now i'm not really hungry i had a granola bar when i got back so i'll cook supper up in a little bit no fish no fish action but that's okay maybe tonight i can get out and fish.
Some but that steak will be fine i got some rice to go with it strippers still got more than half of his food left so everything's good oh it's relaxing very relaxing day oh.
Hello okay crazy been eating blueberries off the chain here his breath smells of blueberries it's better than what it normally smells like good boy he's doing laps.
Going crazy hello you okay you get a little burst energy there he only really slept for a couple minutes i don't know where his way is either well i about fell asleep and i hammock it's time to make supper.
Oh clean up all the twigs off these logs saw them down into pieces split some getting all the branches off makes it easier to cut them into size and also obviously use them for kindling.
Win-win so nope no you leave that stuff there leave it leave it look at that.
Beautiful wood able to nice nice check i'll be able to split it easily as well dog at least it's not taking my fire we're just chewing it on site what is it buddy what.
That's so weird man why are you doing that what is it unless he smells something i don't smell there's there's definite possibility of bears in the area we're not on an island or on this peninsula but.
I know blueberries are kicking right now maybe maybe i don't think so not too worried about it but i'm sure tripper will keep whatever it is far away he's on point though hmm what is it buddy.
Show me where is it come on let's go get him come on come on come on where is he what is he come on show me there's nothing here dude what.
Come on uh i don't see anything so oh your butt's in just in my camera hey can you go over there please go over there buddy no no what yeah you just.
Chew up that wood there big guy i've got all my fire prep done got a butt load of shavings there no birch around so using shavings to strike the fire steel onto a couple of split pieces there fire pits full.
Twigs then i got my fuel so i think i will get this fire going then go down and find a couple rocks to rest my grill on and boil up some rice and cook up that steak at the same time tripper found his toy you found your toy buddy where's your.
Toy you found it good boy i'll do one of these i'll prop this side up completely i can slide fire underneath there once it's made i got my feather stick to ignite.
I thought i was gonna lose that one instant fire hmm so this is gonna be a chore keeping him away from this i'm sure no leave it leave it not for you.
This is a tiny little t-bone t-bone got the little stamp on it on the fat there all right the pot's dancing that means it's boiling so i'll get that off of there get the rice on and it's almost time to.
Put the steak on a lot of water in there more than i need oh that's hot it's funny how that works eh oh look at that look at how slick that is slick.
Rick joe that should be uh that's probably still too much whatever whatever make up your mind so much so much water that's all right i'll pour some out after no big deal par for the course eh yes.
Now he passes out now he goes to sleep right when it's getting to be night time just busting these up so i can grill my steak without too much flame oh i'm so hungry now super hungry all right we got the pop moved over.
Time to throw this bad boy on good amount of sizzle oh no bugs are coming around with this amount of smoke that's for sure all right damn not too shabby i wish i had gloves i'll bring them next time.
We got a little boil over going on one awesome thing about this cup is that i can just pour the water out through those holes just hold the lid down with a piece of wood this is precarious if you had gloves it'd be easy or if you just wait till it cool down.
But who wants to do that see where we're at with that oh yeah lots of water still has the rice cooked nearly about 90 done put it back on on some low heat ah a little high heat it up i'm hungry there we go.
Oh yeah this is done little bit more on this side here almost almost done boys and girls good boy yeah she done pull it off let it sit for a minute uh oops.
Who needs gloves me i do okay that's a horrible noise there we go that was weird all right good boy watching this doesn't even chew it's a good thing about titanium it.
Cools down relatively quickly let's check and see the water situation oh yeah we're good we are good fluffy rice more than enough plus that steak oh yeah.
Perfect perfect oh my tummy's grumbling let's just hold down two uh so people always ask me how do you keep your steak good out all day like it's obvious you have to freeze it the night before take it out that morning.
That's a juicy tender steak and then it'll thaw halfway through the day so i was actually like concerned if this is still good that's how warm it was today but it's fine hold that thought hold that thought i'll be right back don't eat my food bro.
Well you know what i'm allowed to have one i'm allowed to have one you know i have abstained for such a long time i was driving here and i had to get gas.
And i saw this at the outfitter i said cheers that's what i said to myself cheers so cheers guys i'm allowed to have one right as warm as the day is long oh that's tasty okay everything's right in the world.
He's licking all that juice all the steak dank out of that bag don't eat the plastic all right man i almost choked there this is so rewarding this is so good um i'm even feeling feeling generous tripper tripper what's.
This buddy here come chew it up okay that's all you're getting he still has more than enough food for the morning we're gonna get out of here early he's got a vet appointment tomorrow there's something a little wrong with his eye.
I think when him and the cat were fighting not playing around she got him in the inner eyelid it's all it looks detached so anyways the only appointment i could get was tomorrow at 11 and i'm about a three hour drive from where i need to go for that so.
I'm gonna get up and out of here in the morning i'm not even gonna go home in between excuse me my nose is running off my face ah the meat right next to the bone is super tender super flavorful this is kind of reminiscent of a scout.
Trip i never used to take scout on the canoe only a couple times in the canoe but that's what trippers for right working up to a actual canoe trip with them so this is good here buddy so hey too close sit good sit.
Good boy i'm not going to give him the bone because it'll splinter it's been cooked too much if i slow cooked it for a long time i wouldn't mind but that's not the case i don't want him to get a.
Splinter out here or even at home i wouldn't give it to him oh excuse me i just came out of nowhere there you go buddy that's it for now okay one more little piece here they go they go all right go on well guys feel good.
Everything feels right in the world right now to me over here with my doggy enjoying what i love to do i have some trips planned i got a trip playing with buddy mike you haven't seen him in a while i stopped at his place when i was down in toronto on my off days when i didn't have a doctor.
Appointment we mapped out an algonquin route so september sometime we're going for six nights i believe should be a really good trip be long distance reminiscent of the old trips not just fishing and hanging around but we're busting our butts and moving we.
Will still be fishing we'll be on some river and some lake travel and i've got a trip playing with with doug in september as well dude so that should be fun and that's again river and lake travel travel travel.
Oh so much rice left so i'm really looking forward to both those things oh i will be taking tripper on an extended camp this fall maybe in october up to some crown land lakes a little bit north of here where i know.
I can stay there for like maybe a week and oh man he's just destroying everything and uh fish for food build a shelter hang out have some fun should be good times i got lots lots in the works man lots in the works putting on a course very soon through course concierge will be really good.
Online learning of course just basic bushcraft type stuff we've been putting a lot of money and effort into it and we're going to announce it soon it's uh it's planned out big time it's it's way above my head there they have multiple people helping me with it with with the with the layout and with the advertisement and all that stuff so.
Should be pretty good excuse me it should be pretty cool going back to my roots you know trying to help people feel confident outside to help people get the basic skills they need to do this stuff i only have basic skills i'm not some kind of crazy bushman never claimed to.
Be you know i'm not a survivalist definitely never claimed to be that um i just like camping and in order to do the type of camping i like to do you have to have a little baseline of skills i mean and i've i've i've been doing that so.
Time to pass the knowledge on in depth do things that i'm not allowed to do on youtube do things um it'll be in video form pdf written um audio mixture of all of them so it should be pretty cool i'm excited to drop it.
You gotta take the kid camping like i said lots of stuff lots of stuff in the works man but i'm gonna finish this up i'll get back to you there's a drool hanging from his mouth all right big guy you're gonna get.
Hooked up all right you stay there don't be greedy no no stay there here try to chew it okay meanwhile i'm like oh he's not getting any more i just picked the bone clean i picked the bone clean for you big guy.
All the morsels all the tender morsels good boy see this eye here is only his left eye is the one that's messed up i can see it right now good boy all right that's probably it man probably it.
Hey go big guy that's all she wrote come back good boy so i've been laying here reading this is actually quite comfortable there are some some low spots that i want to fill in.
So that's what this last arm full of bows is for it's not cold at all i'm still okay okay okay go over there go it's still really warm actually i got all these little tops.
Just to make it softer make it uh springy dude you need to go over there okay go over there go on triple go go oh he's all full energy again he had that little nap.
I'm getting ready for bed i hear you man i hear you but anyway this is gonna be a nice comfortable sleep tonight there's the bugs have not come out yet it's 8 45 i'm expecting them to come out when the.
Sun goes down completely oh my goodness but uh anyway regardless i still got a decent amount of firewood and worst comes to worst i'll bury myself in my wool blanket it's not not going to be the worst.
Night's sleep i ever had i'm sure let's see so i'm going to open my my uh wool blanket halfway this is only a quarter it's been only a quarter open all day no no no no back up and then i will crawl inside it that thing down that half of it down so.
I don't um feel the bow so i don't get all poked up all night long probably just sleep in my clothes oh yeah this is totally doable i do have a pillow too go out of my in my uh backpack that will just be the icing on the cake oh yes.
Oh yes that's more than fine that'll do well i'm gonna get the little bit of food i have and his food put away for the night before it gets too dark i did uh no you need to leave that alone.
Go man ah leave it buddy he's a good looking dog eh he's lucky he is lucky you got something going for you big so myself is a little smoke bath.
I'll probably put some bug screen on here and bug spray on here too i imagine probably should do that okay i will you talked me into it i got my food all in the uh the other pouch on this side and then i put it up into a.
Tree i'm not concerned oh for water this trip i have pristine drops that's what i've been doing just waiting on some water to be done got 20 minutes to go before i can drink some water um.
So do yeah the mosquitoes are out they're not going away well the moon's out nice crescent moon no real color tonight all mosquitoes are out oh my goodness they're up i get my headlamp out soon it's just in.
My backpack right there but try and read by the light of the fire for a bit if i can all right well it's 10 30 now it's time to turn in excuse me mosquitoes are still pretty bad i'm gonna put my head underneath the.
Blanket and hopefully that does the trick tripper's dead to the world he doesn't seem to care too much he's got his flea and tick medication which prevents worms from fleas they get worm uh dogs get worms from fleas uh not please.
Sorry mosquitoes so he'll be all right it might be an uncomfortable night but no damage will happen to him for it so all right guys wish me luck oh yeah plenty of room good night.
Oh this is this is warm this is pretty warm that was a rough night no okay buggy very buggy not warm warm for about half the night oh.
It's uh six in the morning now sun's just starting to come up there's a nice fog on the lake oh mosquitoes they never really died down i can see my breath i don't have any sweater or anything oh i had my toque.
I completely forgot about my tooth uh get this water on here now to boil that's probably plenty of water right there i'm just going to set it right on this these logs for this morning bam.
Nice and easy you say tripper pretty buggy or what boy um it's just a frog tripper i'm half using this blanket for warmth and half for bug protection this sleeping pad i made.
Now the bows was fine uh comfortable enough for one night i let the fire die down probably around midnight i had two pieces left here just threw them on this morning like you saw that's gotta be boiled by now.
no careful careful here tripper be careful we'll get some blueberries too a decent handful there oh man these bugs are not fun that'll add some flavor to the planned bland oatmeal.
I guess it's not late enough in the year yet to not be bringing a tent i figured it was august and the mosquitoes had died down a bit and they have obviously and there's no black flies and i survived the night you know i mean like i did get lit up.
Lit up by bugs on my arms oh yeah oh my neck what it's good to know maybe another month i had fun i had a lot of fun enjoy being out here with tripper i enjoyed having the steak and the beer checking testing out my new pot.
Bringing the small little backpack from the hidden woodsman it's always fun when i do stuff like that minimal gear type thing even though i have everything i need you know i mean again a tent would have been nice but and really my solo tent.
Is not much bigger than this tarp when it's rolled up the only difference is the poles yeah the poles would have been uh moving a lot the blueberries really work in there my back is so itchy from bites mosquitoes have started to calm down now the humming was so loud at one point.
All around my head it took me a long time to fall asleep actually i didn't fall asleep till about one and then i had broken sleep until about five and i got up around five or stayed up around five oh man well i'll finish eating this up it'll get.
Packed up get on out of here hope you guys enjoyed this video i haven't done a camp like this in a long time and a lot of you guys were asking for videos with tripper i'm glad to do it next one with him pro you know what so.
I'm still waiting on my files to come back my uh my external hard drive they called me and said that it would cost a little bit extra money because or a lot of money because the the the hard drive itself was like broken like they had what are you doing.
It's a frog man he hears a frog croaking he's anyway shop i'm waiting on all that to come back and when i do get that back i have my first video tripper's first backpacking video already done ready to go he's like a.
Fraction of the size he is now in this in that video so i'll be able to post that hopefully soon uh it's taking some doing it's probably been two months now craziness but anyway that will be a video similar to this but backpacking and in much colder weather.
There was still a little bit of snow on the ground and we hiked in camped and hiked out but i'm gonna eat this up deal with the dog and get on out of here like i said thank you for watching i really appreciate it be on the lookout for new videos.
Check out the hidden woodsman for the backpack ben's backwoods for the tarp bunker branding for the pot under joe for under influencers and under joe what else do we got thank you to jim latey for the axe and the spoon um i think that's everything.
