Be getting dropped off on the 30th from a floatplane with Kyle into woodland caribou I'm driving ten hours north tomorrow tomorrow morning at Thunder Bay then we meet up with buddy Kyle who's flying in from California I pick Kyle up and travel to six extra hours to Red Lake we actually lose a loozy now or gain an hour because the time change is.
Different anyways wants to go through it lake stay there for a day with Harlan getting ready for our camping trip getting all of our gear sorted got a fishing gear sorted gettin our maps and getting our route nailed down we will be bidding getting picked up by a flow plane as well seven days later we're traveling down the gamin river system.
And woodland caribou Provincial Park be fishing for pike lake trout and world walleye this is the gear video for this before I hop into this this is me taking a chance because I need to do this for myself anybody who has watched my videos understands what I'm talking about I'm gonna be having a procedure coming.
Up next month and I'm going to be out of commission for a little bit and I need to get a real canoe trip in just for my own peace of mind this is not for anyone else this is up for any other reasons this is for me wanting to go on a canoe trip with my friend really badly and doing it let's get into the gear well you know what.
I've decided let's do this in real time because really I am honestly still getting on like you're sorted like that you can see piles of his things everywhere backpack is is Phil Phil's but I don't have everything organized right now so let's do that together it's it's real because I'm traveling for two days beforehand and then two days after.
To come home so I need specific things in the car with me food and clothing and stuff so that's what this bag is for some of this needs to go into that not much I do have all of my breakfast already sorted out for the trip so here's my silly little super greens hiyah meal that goes in here for my for my road trip for my hotel stay for on.
The road whatever yeah some things to go in there will be some clothes I need to drive back right I have Harlan sucks we got to give back to Harlan thanks for the cool copia sucks these are my my secondary pants I'm gonna bring these to either wear around camp at night or to change into if we have the panties soaking wet so.
These are actually gonna go in my backpack I don't believe I'll bring this shirt this is a short sleeve wind short boat shirts son shirt I don't think I'll bring it because I am bringing this one which is a long sleeve right so the idea is I need to stay away from Sun and bugs I don't know if you can see but right there is all black fly blades just from.
Just from watching my daughter's soccer practice the other night here where we live so Harlan has assured me the black flies aren't as bad up there it's much drier I'll believe them we need to stay away from the black flies long-sleeve shirt tucked in and underneath that is this rhino skin and this is a very tight to my body tight cuffs tight waistband.
So this one had tucked in and because black flies like to crawl right they crawl and said mosquitoes the land and they sting you black flies crawling they find an opening and they they have this like milf not it's not a proboscis and they just take a chunk go to you so that's going that's going these are my pants these are the same pants I wore.
When I went with Sean to woodland caribou these are our Tilley pants and the reason I'm wearing these is because the leg cuff goes longer than my elastic cuff the elastic cuffs on these kind of ride up so this I can tuck into my sock if I need to yeah so we're gonna bring those there a bit heavier they're little so.
Quick-dry they're just a little bit heavier than these guys but these will make us a good secondary parent this trip it's okay to double carry on the poritosh we not trying to single carry we don't have a lot of we don't have anywhere we need to be we're getting picked up on a float plane as well seven days later we can travel seven.
Kilometers a day or we can travel 30 kilometers a day if we want to we'll just have to get on a certain one one of a few certain links that can be picked up that a float plane can land on though we can get picked up on so this isn't a super crazy distance trip this is a did in tune with ourselves and nature and catch fish and relax and have a little.
Bit of fun that didn't that these are my pantyhose no these are the rhino skin socks so there are double layer and yeah we'll be wearing these I don't know if I'll be wearing these in conjunction with another pair of socks over top of them we'll see the first day I'm just gonna wear these and see how it goes first day there's a risk of.
Thunderstorms so flying in on the flow plane might be delayed or interesting I've got my old hat my old bushcraft USA Tan hat if you see it there's a theme here all tan all light colors right black flies especially really like the color black and dark dark clothes so we're sticking away from dark these pants or load as dark as it gets and.
They're still pretty light they're not brown or laughs it's okay underwear and then a shirt for underneath the white one if I need it just an Arc'teryx quick dry I got some underwear for the car that's important right underwear for the car two pairs I've got good socks these are darn tough thin socks I like these so though this.
Is gonna be my the clothes that I wear in the first day sans cold-weather gear if I need it this is Sam's means other than or something along those lines this is a merino wool buff that you kind of do one of these put it in the water and then doing those and get you nice and cooled down or you put over but protection as well lots of uses for.
That so that's my clothes for the first day that can get pushed over the way here I do have an extra pair of underwear lay on the ground let's throw that in the car bag with the clothes I do have a bugs bug net above head net but I also have the original bug shirt there's a full size bug jacket in here that's coming with me just in case I.
Need to do it so that's coming with me in the backpack and then as far as belts go is just as nylon belt I don't like to use a big thick leather belt when I'm sitting in the canoe all day paddling so this nice thin one comes with favorite pair of skater jeans Oh will be used kind of jumping around here but I'm just dealing with the things that are right.
In front of me right now so we've got fish crisp Carl really wanted me to bring fish crisp we got fish crisp we got lard okay this is the same stuff used with Shawn lard instead of oil works well keeps well so I will be doing one of these because I don't want to bring the whole bag I'm not gonna use it a lot I'll probably have fish press one.
Or two nights the other night so I'll be doing it without breading is probably not the greatest for me and I do want to stay in good health while I'm out there so it beforehand I'll just put it in a bag and then I'll make sure to bring an extra couple bags to batter the fish in right because you don't want to keep putting fish in the same batter joke in.
The same bag and taking you know though that would get a little fishtank eat so a decent fish crust there it is Kyle and I - so who knows how much mess we're gonna get no weekends but I got that but then again like I said we'll bring a couple extra bags to actually shake and bake style the fish in it so a couple bags just go right in there that works.
Just fine throw the lard in there - we'll deal with that in the fruit bag I've got some fruit to go these little fruit leather things I got out a handful of them there were 40 cents each I grabbed a handful banana lime stuff like that pretty healthy the sugar is pretty low in them decent decent stuff otherwise for fish I.
Have a lemon I have small pearl onions of red ones I have garlic and I have tinfoil I plan on doing some walleye in the tin flow with the lemon the garlic the lard some BAM Sun spice in there actually very tasty I got some hard cheese some double smoked hard cheese we've got some lunch meat as far as camera gear goes I've got a brand new.
Hero 7 GoPro which should be good the audio is supposed to be better on it than the 5 which I've been using and if I was not good on the in the canoe it cooks up the paddling and my talking at the same time as you probably saw my last video it's not good I hate it so that one's supposed to be better I've got the five the seven and a session so.
I'll set those all up differently on my boat and and or for time lapses and stuff I've got connector pieces for my bow just random stuff for the GoPro and here I have a power bank for charging the GoPros I have a GoPro cord and I have three Nikon batteries for my camera that I'm filming on right now I'll be bringing my nikon z6 with my rode.
Videomic go and my tripod that all of that I'm using right now I have one battery in there obviously so for batteries total no charging this time I'm not bringing a solar panel or whatever would be a little bit less filming with a little bit less filming all around I'll probably have two hour long videos or six days and I can go for.
A night and get two hours no problem as you know so anyways we'll be filming a lot with the GoPros in the boat and then you in the big one as well but mainly using that one for the nice stuff camp shots catching fish stuff like that so that's my my my camera gear assorted this is my fort bag that goes in the canoe hangs up.
In the canoe like that again we're not still carrying so I'm not worried with this this would throw my balance all off right inside it I have things like so stainless steel Laura I have a bug net for my head I have some twist high gear ties for my attached to my tripod to my boat or my fishing rod to my boat low and portaging.
Got my spot the Heartland is hooking us up with a Sat phone but we're bringing the spot to just another dealy-bob to connect stuff to my boat this is a strap that I use some webbing that I use on the front of my boat like a rope so I can line it or it helps with portaging and balancing so that gets put right on my boat all this stuff like doesn't stay.
In here this stuff goes on my boat this is a bail hid safety hit my GPS very handy more more of GoPro stuff so this is a head mount I'll have to put that with the camera stuff straps for my glasses so I don't lose them bug spray a patch kit for my boat and a fillet knife with that I'll be putting this secondary tackle box in there I already do have.
One in my life jacket packed away with 99% of my tackle already I'm not going crazy on the tackle this time but I do foresee myself buying a few more spoons and stuff maybe some wraps when I'm up at Harlan's shop but anyways until then all that fun stuff gets swallowed up by this this is a fox light here for bag with my food and you have a spatula it's.
Good it works like a spatula does I got a handkerchief I have these glacier gloves that I'm not sure if I'm going to bring or not it's not supposed to be too cold but paddling on the thunderstorm or keep my hands away from black flies might be useful we'll see I'm not sure I got these in wasn't caribou the first time this is a.
Dry bag for my camera to keep ready when I'm in the canoe just to slide it over top of that camera if I need to this is a secondary Kevlar bag for food it's a scent proof bag than Kevlar I'm bringing this for Kyle I'm sending these the second one he's a big boy he gets bigger I ain't hungry bringing this map case the secondary map case for file as well.
I have one there's an aqua quest one you put the map and Eric keep it dry it's useful so all that kind of stuff is getting put in this this day bag so I don't have to search through my my big bag give it all out these are getting packed in there this is my water filter system the be free like you've seen me use 1 million times this is a pretty new.
One so even if I do puncture it I can just plug my plug it with my finger and the the the filter will do well for this trip up there you can almost rate the water just where the lake but I can't risk that I do have a 15 pound spiderwire camel braid so normally I use 10 I couldn't find 10 but this is just extra anyways in case my line messes up.
A lot of the times they finally braid when I'm casting it gets pretty tied up but it doesn't twist like mono goes when you're trolling so it's I like it like brains better than mono but white the whole thing about like you got an extra lens this is a Nikon 85 milk rhyme so hopefully I can use and with the adapter to go on my Nikon on the new Nikon I.
Hope to use it I hope that I get some good footage out of it I can go with the camera gear and bring these neoprene socks they're pretty thick but I plan on having to jump in the water every morning after my morning ritual so I don't want to have to walk out onto the wall into the water on slippery rocks or jagged rocks or or what have.
You it's nice to have things on your feet when you're walking into the water depending on where you are so I'll use these in the morning for that and then by the end of the day when I get to camp I'm sure the hot dry dough and then I can use it for camp shoes so that I'm not walking around with bare feet and getting my ankles all bit up by bugs I.
Am bringing a pair of lightweight hiking boots which I normally don't do that's what I my footwear is going to be normally I'll wear hiking hiking shoes or a quick dry shoes but this time it's not going to be that cold I don't really care if my feet are wet for most of the trip and the boots come up higher to correct protect my ankles from the.
Biting bugs which my ankles always get lit up so yeah this is my Footwear for the morning swim and for nighttime possibly but it's worth brain I'll go through my life jacket just really quick and then I'll dump out my bag so this is my fisherman life jacket obviously I always always have it it's got two big pockets on one side I've got fishing.
It's like some lures I got a worm I saw a big spoon and I've got pliers to take the lures out of the fish and then on the other side I've got my tackle that's all the tackle I had before I had secondary blocks this has got spoons wraps jigs and a couple tiny spinners but that's it really expecting pike and walleye Lake trouble be a.
Pleasant but it's a little bit warm and they in the year for it but we'll see anyways this go this is small enough that it can go right in my my pocket oh my my lifejacket so it's still heavy enough when I'm portaging it but it's not really going away into a secondary bag and I don't have to put into my big bag I'm not bringing a secondary.
Backpack on this trip even though we can port don't portage double carry I'm not going to this fork bag will be enough I'll probably up this strap at either my backpack work area so that's that I've got my fishing license in there as well let's talk about this backpack real quick this is the same backpack I've been using for two new trophies for.
Years and kind of shows it used to be what kind of red I'm gonna dump it out I just want to take a couple things out beforehand there we go okay I didn't have a lot in it before my extra year camo first up is my chair Kyle and I both decided we'll bring chairs this is a key one ox I used to have a REI one but I accidentally melted.
At the fire so this one's a touch bigger but it's no big deal not the latest thing not the biggest thing it's just whatever but it's worth having especially for me hanging around camp for a little bit I've got my sleeping pad which is my therm-a-rest NeoAir xterm about my tent which is my Big Agnes flight Cree ql1 my poles are my.
Stakes for my tent just a super thin small safety blanket Kyle's bringing a big tarp as a communal thing I have a few communal pieces he has the tarp it's a big one but in case this is for signaling it's blaze orange here for signaling or for just extra protection it doesn't weigh much at all it's sill nylon from bushcraft Outfitters I think.
It's a six by eight yeah six by eight so it's worth having in my opinion this is my rain gear just Arc'teryx rain jacket and pants and this is my clothes so not too big so really oh sorry am i sig med this is my Sigma nice and small really if you look at my face stuff it's not that big you know I mean it's not that much stuff.
But then you add on so my foods a little bit much actually it's not bad in there but once I add the other stuff I'm sure it'll be quite a bit by my pot system is justice ilma I'm sorry still my own pot like titanium pot with my wood stove in it by a bush buddy wood soap and a little spoon on the side so there's my cooking.
Stuff this is one of the communal things the fry pan this will be used for fish for eggs all good stuff so communal communal saw communal acts and Kyle's got the tarp I believe I do also have the lard and the fish crisp man I need to give Kyle some of this stuff to carry a thing yes I forgot I do have a Possible's pouch here with things like.
Sunscreen a headlamp first aid battery for my headlamp polysporin for my bug bites a repair tube for my tent poles with a bunch of gaffer tape on it fire steel whistle yeah so that's important to have we will be getting the maps from Harlan like I said him I do have my GPS like I said anyway let's pack this bad boy up the way you pack your pack back.
The weight pack your backpack is important I'm gonna go chair first look like tent look at my tents on my seat bag like those are small guys so small such a joy to use light stuff especially when you know it holds up this has been used hasn't been used all right anyway those two in there laying flat those two in.
There standing up I like to slide anything long down the side of it right off the hop so that like the poles go there the saw goes next to the poles I'll put the axe on the other side to even it out all slit right down to the bottom sticking straight up and that stuff should be the heaviest thing which.
Is the food so I will do that and then we'll go through the food in a minute here oh yeah my grill my girl is coming to do robbing it grow this is the bank this is the bank of the central peg goes in will not worry about that read the second just for demonstrative purposes I like to put that one food right in them right low in the.
Middle and close to my back so it's not pulling away from me and making it difficult to hike we got Possible's pouch so my pants my socks and my bug jacket are gonna get all slid down in the little gap that's in front of the food bag just to take take the space up flying pan I can go in my food I'm.
Starting to close and my rain jacket still nylon cooking cooking kit I'll keep the TP right at the top this stuff needs to go to my camera stuff actually in the camera stock should be able to go in here with the with the lens this is a Fox Lake coach as well I love using their stuff they're a small American company salt-of-the-earth tape people.
Like to support them this one's a nice insides it's bright very visible anyway lens and camping camera gear are getting kind of sandwiched in here protected so this is what I also have to remember right I have a tripod and I have that camera I can't portage all the time with the camera in my hand this will this trim.
Being a little bit different because of the double carries but I do have to save room in my backpack for that tripod and that camera the lucky thing is that tripod can fit sideways like this at the top so I don't have to try and smash it down on the side after it's all full so lightweight tripod it's pretty good one too.
I do sacrifice some things with it because I don't have like I don't have that that thing where you can pull the Lego and make it uneven I have to kind of hey guys I can work it it just it's a little bit inconvenient but it's it's worth it for the eliteness of it it's got a little handkerchief I'll throw in there I do have to read repack.
This after oh and a couple little all-purpose garbage bags you know they're gonna be good to keep things dry or whatever they're all you don't know when they come in handy let me put that in my camera bag actually easier said I do oh okay she's getting up there how the.
Last things this is my map case again fox-like gear clear case on this side fossil was poached on that side I want to bring some paracord and another Ridgeline just in case this can go on my boat this can get straps on my backpack or strapped to my port bag whatever whatever I want to do I can rig this up like that that's coming with me not.
Necessarily going to my backpack but for now we'll put it in there and I think that's really it as other than this camera gear so this will be on the boat this one might be in my backpack and this will be on the boat so I only really have like maybe this that I have to pack away okay so that's not much a half a pound camera gear adds up in.
Weight in bulk don't want to forget my extra fishing line I'm almost positive I'll need it I think Kyle might be bringing two fishing rods which shoot it's not a bad idea do we want holes all in our bub no that's what we just got that's what we just got Joseph oh no it's all all in there.
I'm gonna have to go buy another one let's put that not near the zipper part alright so basically what you see here this these cameras my life jacket my for bag with my canoe my fishing pole and my paddle I'll be everything let's see I do have room plenty of room in here for my tripod of my camera as you can see it's a lip just over three-quarters.
Full oh yeah it's not too bad not too bad at all my my water filter will stay in my cargo pants pocket I put that here there we go I did forget to mention I have a lot of toiletries with me as well medications for bug bites and for my self and stuff like that so that all become with me.
Along with my toothbrush and things that I have to pack still tomorrow so this is my food bag everything fits in there with the exception of just a little bit of lard and fish crest which Kyle is gonna carry I've made that decision for him so food for a week first up let's do the.
Suppers so I've got lovely wife's chili not mom's sphaghetti lovely wife's chili for night one a decent amount it said we dehydrated ourselves she makes it herself everything's good no preservatives nothing like that second night is dehydrated shredded chicken rice dehydrated vegetables like carrots onions green beans leeks fun stuff a.
Little bit of spice in there as well it's a lot of chicken in there would you hydrate about ourselves as well third night mom's spaghetti lovely wife's spaghetti fourth night we're taking a chance if we eat this this is pepper beef with rice and this is a help honey I've had it forever it's time to eat it it's not too bad the ingredients.
Are the preservatives but if I can avoid this I will I'm just bringing it because it's something different and I've had it for a long time if I can eat fish instead of that I will this is dehydrated vegetables and rice so I need to catch fish with this for supper and if not that's just what Supper is that date night six one two.
Three four five six is chili again and then this we have six nights seven days this is again my lemon tinfoil onions and garlic that'll go with walleye in the fire which should be pretty tasty if there's walleye to be cut by us just checking on my camera long we did you know so we got lunch next and lunch again if I can avoid.
Eating as much lunch sweet as I can that I will but it's there in case I have seven flat breads I have about four or five days worth of lunch meat I have this dry cheese that will go with the lunch meat and I also have these mustard packets that an awesome subscribers sent to me that will go with the lunch meat as well so this is all one probably.
About five days I've got where'd it go oh this this is my chicken stoop it used to be beige I hydrated the heck out of it and now it's like black well that's okay that's a light lunch as opposed to lunch meat for my stomach I also have a light lunch of chili in case or it could be an extra supper whatever these are my goji berries and dried.
Fruits all that stuff which goes into my breakfast I don't know why I haven't in my lunch spot goes into my breakfast now to check the camera again got to do it come on red see you right again sure okay breakfast god I made up my own oatmeal with flaxseed and uh good oatmeal and it some extra sugary oatmeal in there just just for a little bit of.
Kick and then with that is gonna be going at the bacon jerky couple pieces of bacon jerky every morning so I've got one two three four five six of those oatmeal's that are all the same but for the seventh day or one of those seven days I do have a Spanish omelet so that's from happy yak and that'll get cooked in my my skillet as the.
Ingredients aren't bad so seven morning's of breakfast with my bacon jerky and as well the berries so they're easy jerky and the oatmeal together should be a filling breakfast should be as far as oh I've got also this chia powder these chia seeds with probiotics in it that go in my water it's pretty good for me I've got.
Dehydrator sorry freeze-dried bananas and pineapple in here just a couple couple bags of party mix for the night time just two of them for snacks I've got throughout the day I got that jerky has two packs of jerky in there but mmm almonds or almond M&Ms I've got almonds I've got peanut butter M&Ms and of the almonds this is about.
Almond Eminem's this is about half the M&Ms I normally would bring they're a good snack for the daytime I just don't know how much I should be eating other than that for snack strip for the day I've got about seven one two three four five six seven seven piles things like Clif bars Nature Valley bars and then fruit roll-up tape things I've got a.
A variety of different ones for everyday I assume this will be enough food wit coupled with the fish the only thing again I didn't fit in there lard and fish crisp look how to carry that what I do like to do for my suppers excuse me it's kind of condense them just into one big ziploc bag so that when I when it's time to eat them I.
Know where they are they're gonna go on the bottom of the big bag because I don't really want to be having to search through that to get snacks or breakfast or whatever so put all those at the bottom back and go together nice and neatly this other one can stay out it's just too bulky to put in there it'll slide down beside them okay let's pack.
This food bag up I was able to get it all to fit two minutes ago I'm hoping to do the same again flat one right there okay so yeah I try to just pack it ideally so I can get to things in the day time that I need I don't care when were on camp we have to have to dump it all of it at lunch you'd be nice to not have to do that.
it fit well shut no I don't know man I don't know Oh looking promising sweet like I said it will bring the second one for college when he asked me to look at that damn damn daughter the my girl doesn't need to go in there it will at night because.
It's things like food but you can slide down and decide it let's see what this now oh look at that like it was meant to be seven days worth of food damn well I sure hope you got something under that video hope I didn't run too long shaking and yeah I'm excited I'm very excited to go on this trip with Kyle I'm pretty nervous to see how my body's.
Gonna handle it but it has to be done man it has to be done and maybe this will be good for me you know but if you're watching this chances are I'm 90% done that trip thank you guys very much for watching wish me luck I'll see you soon with a real trip video from this trip or two.
