Hey guys it's joe we're all packed up on the side by side we're gonna go spent three or four nights out winter camping let's go we're out here the buddy tosh from the youtube channel tosh self-propelled we're gonna do three or four nights went.
To camping tasha's got himself what kind of tank do you have is it lux no it's a lux twin peak the lux twin peaks so it's a nice luxury sill nylon hot tent and i've got old faithful snow trucker 8x10.
We're on this trail that the landowner gave us permission to camp on for the next three or four days we're actually going to be doing a deer camp it's the first ever for me and tosh has a little bit experience for it so i'm ex really excited to learn and to potentially.
Have success so we're gonna camp on this trail here and there's a little spot out there we're gonna be checking out near a field um the reason we're on the trail is because it's flat and we don't have to cut trees down to make room for these enormous shelters tasha's is 14 feet long.
So anyways we're going to set up side by side we've got a lot of luxuries a lot of amenities we're going to cook a lot of good food have a good time and uh we'll talk to you what are we doing it's a big top in place it's so huge it's a rectangle of a tent yeah it's a giant rectangle for a giant man.
Yeah i didn't clear enough snow oh that's cool i like the color scheme the brown on brown yeah it is nice oh with the green accents too slick i believe they're all uh glow in the dark see and this is the same type of.
Material mylux is made out of i don't is it just rip stop i don't even know it doesn't look like rip stop i don't know if it's rip stop or some other name but satosh drove up last night and stayed in a in sudbury and came to the place this morning drive way.
Up to the snow he said there was no snow up until almost my place so that's kind of crazy we got hammered we're supposed to get a lot more snow while we're out here too so that's always fun oh a twin peak i think that's where they got the name.
This is a narrow uh narrow spot we have here bud yeah well thankfully it's got the awning on the side and there's a door at either end there you go yeah so you don't have to mess around on the sides okay i got you yeah that'll work i think d.
All right that's really cool and i uh still have to finish shoveling just trying to get rid of the snow here because i'd like to have a dry tent considering we're gonna be posted up for quite a few days uh and underneath here it's all sand so that'll be perfect.
It's not gonna get too muddy on us it's going to dry right out some more so completely opposite tents posh is being lightweight and big mind being heavy and small both will do the job for sure i chose this tent because.
It's gonna give me more room inside of it i have a table and a cot and like a lot of stuff that i never ever ever bring camping but i figured this is the time for it so i have a lot of room in here to get up walk around have a sleeping area.
So we're going to set this tent up we got this little y bracket and the two legs go on the longer part of the y and the cross piece which has two open sides goes on the middle obviously we're just gonna lean that there for a hot minute.
And get these other sides in oh no oh yes oh yeah it's working we're good don't be worried joe this one's gonna be okay okay got a tent look at that i'm gonna have to create a kind of a little pathway on the side here what have you seen me camping with a table.
Camping with a table in the forest in the snow in the winter in the blizzard joe rubbing that hashtag camping with the table i'm excited to use it it's a little shorty a little shorty table look at that oh my gosh i'm in love.
Another first for all joe the woods brand caught from canadian tire it sells more than tires i'll tell you that much you know sells more than the tires there we go we're gonna get it we're going to get it it's going to work.
For us one one down make sure we get the cod all full of snow here okay what the heck i'm balling out of control here a little.
Nightstand with this table oh man i'm excited sasha's got a similar setup we talked on the phone before this i said yeah let's do cots let's do cots i snuck in the table though okay i'm liking the.
Feel of this already see this tent's plenty big but not for more than one person like really you have one other person over there but then no table what would you do without a table a little bit of an update on the weather here uh we're supposed to get.
Up to 70 kilometer an hour gusts tonight which i think we've worked out to be about 40 mile an hour which is decent but luckily above is pretty clear there's nothing bad or dead any kind of deadfall or anything and then about two one to two feet of snow so.
Yeah we're in for it uh i'm glad we got everything kind of squared away already i'm gonna tuck away everything that's outside of the tent in the tent just so we don't lose anything but a big job we have to do is get a lot of firewood because we have two stoves two tents um and we have to cook food and stuff like that and stay warm so that's what most.
Of the day is going to be dedicated towards i think how many times uh did you hear me say the word table joe very much likes his little table it's a short table for a short guy you know yeah he goes yeah i know it just peels up like a carpet almost that's i actually like the four.
Individual legs on this one because you can kind of wiggle it in yeah and press one down further that makes sense everything squared away my tent pole start my snowfall up there boreal outdoor innovations.
And the snow is coming down oh i'm gonna take this cedar it's bone dry it's snapped off at the top uh and uh that'll be good kindling for good us of firewood until tomorrow we've got other stuff too some hardwood.
Tomorrow we'll have to get a bunch more i don't know late today only only light until five o'clock these days so timber we've got a mix of some hardwood some soft here.
So between the two of us is it snowing out there a little bit it's nice in here man i bet i'll be warm though oh just sitting on my cot you know watching the day go by all right i'll go help him what color was it.
Maroon the kuwait oh the canoe canoe yeah that was a good trip tosh and i are reminiscing about our matawa river trip we did earlier this year we put our second trip together and uh we both filmed that one those videos will be out in a little while.
But we had a lot of fun it was a very historic road or route if you prefer so we're doing all right on the wood pretty good on the wood yeah we're gonna have plenty of wood here for tonight anyway this is a cool setup you know if it got.
Really crappy we could string like a tarp from this one to that one yeah exactly yeah like a porch out here that'd be kind of cool porch to lend fur oh man it's really starting to come down now the uh the wind's picking up too.
Accumulation on the tents like crazy oh she's all tucked away cozy i get supper cooking tonight's my night to cook supper we're taking turns so stir fry is on the menu and uh fire's already gone it's just steam water dropping off it's a little steamy.
Celery carrots the red peppers a bunch of onions and garlic and then we've got water chestnuts and i've still got to cut up the meat but right now i think we're going to toss this.
Massive amount of onions and garlic in that was an anti-climactic sizzle where's the sizzle joe oh if you could only smell this all right meets back on the menu boys we got a whole bunch of good quality beef here throw in got our firewood stacked some more firewood there and this is coming along heavenly.
Swimmingly tasha is going to come on over into here i got a chair for him and uh spot right there and it's windy outside dude you hear that howling oh the celery the celery smells so good.
A little hefty amount of meat here it's a big ol pot full a little skillet full we're all in this is awesome does it smell can you smell it oh yeah it's smell it i think it's done well what do you think delicious man.
Yeah oh yeah good yeah i love it it's great i didn't have to cook it either yeah well i'm free for the next well tomorrow night at least i'm gonna switch off cooking duties i got this um cheap little lantern three modes it's probably like 40 bucks.
At the hardware store you can't have it like that because you see the lines in it like coming through but then that's like a nice little ambient nightlight type thing then freaking nuclear yeah well that was very good i'm glad tash was into it too.
Uh we sat around shooting for a little while probably gonna hit the haze soon because we want to be up uh before the sun rises so we can go to the field and see what we can see uh that's the plan anyway so i will uh i'll get with you if anything else happens if not this will be it for the night and i'll get with you in the.
Morning oh man that's a couple inches since i've been in my tent yeah easily holy smokes dude yeah there's easily a couple inches of snow there it's wild.
It feels maybe it's letting up a little bit but i don't know they're so tiny all right well that's all for me i'm going to bed it doesn't look bad though no i think there are some ties in the middle i could put on.
Yeah me too good night buddy yeah we wake up and it's like shitty like this dude just staying bad now you can see i've got my gear all squared away bed made stole a bunch of wood here and let's check on the fire see how it's.
Going i'm i'm comfortable like i have a middle really hot overly cold or anything like that it is wet the sides are wet which normally doesn't happen um in this tent but i just think it's so much snow.
Constantly coming down that it's just seeping through it's piling up here a little bit too but anyways no worries the old wood stove will keep us dry and warm i'll dry things out anyway it's bedtime.
Freaking bad time bye well it's bedtime i'm checking in on in the morning to see how much snow we get hopefully don't get buried good morning believe it or not it's nine o'clock in the morning freaking drop the ball i slept in the steam bed for like 12 hours last night i got up a couple times to.
Pee a couple times just stoked the fire uh talked to tosh around seven it was still snowing he said screw it just stay in bed i said cool i can do that so now it's nine i'm finally ready to get up oh what a good sleep good sleep and i think that the tent is just covered in snow by the looks of it.
So we'll get up and go check out the snow situation start the fire and uh start our day oh my okay i knocked some snow off the branch and it lifted so that's good oh my have you been out yet does it look like a hammer it doesn't.
You're right that's that's a good call wow dude hello look at that bread branch just bowed down right over in front of my tree there my tent holy smokes that's a lot of snow it's a lot of snow you know.
Man not a sound this is dead quiet wow i gotta fix my chimney i think i saw my axe no footprints or nothing hey half buried on the side.
Yeah 10 started keeping a little bit wow very cool the plane overhead and everything what is creaking in here oh it's the birch tree that's tipping over my tent oh that wasn't there before no no it was not it's like touching your stove yeah.
You can hear it just like what the that's a lot of snow it's a lot of snow we got chef tosh working up some breakfast in his tent trying to get my fire going back good in here it's a little moist that piece of wood as you can see.
I'm probably the hungriest i've ever been in my life right now i think i'm really hungry man like that was a lot of food we ate last night at like seven and then that was it yeah easily joe's big hungry where'd the sun go.
oh okay that was a lot of snow a lot of snow down the old back the doctor said i need a becky enemy whenever i'm splitting a piece of wood if there's a natural check or a crack in.
It i'll always try to aim for that just to make the job easier honestly this is cedar so it's not a big deal either way but so i'm just putting it on the snow in front of the log and using the log as like a backstop instead of trying to balance it on the.
Top then when it's broken down like this it's easier to just use your hand and hold it and then depending how far you want to go you can even do one of these let me get my fire going now it's been.
Struggling all morning oh it's gonna get all steamy now this looks super good what's that let's throw some eggs in it too nice man you got the setup hey lots of room not a lot of headroom but awesome.
And then this side comes out yeah this opens up the whole length of it eh one pull to the other it's pretty slick i can't stay in here because the smell smells so very good you want bagels or wraps i've got wraps here if you want you can do wraps that.
Sounds good we'll do the bagel we'll do bagel breakfast sandwiches tomorrow then freaking spoiled out here on this one that's right there we go geeky hush just fricking dropped off a bunch of.
Good smelling foods oh can i fit in here again it got it's gotten smaller since last night there's some wraps a dirty plate from last night okay i had a confession to make i boiled the potatoes and then used the potato water to wash my hair.
Oh man thank you all right well we're going to devour this these potatoes man look how soft fried in bacon grease oops very good all right well i'm going to get into this it's noon now everything's all squared away frickin.
Full uh comfortable warm we're gonna go for a hike i've only ever been back well maybe about 150 meters past where we are now but it goes back forever and it goes into crown land and.
Everything so we're gonna hike back excuse me i'm bringing the gopro and uh there's gonna be tons of snow and potentially animals and stuff so we'll go out look for some tracks and see where we make it out to there's a creek that we're trying to uh.
Potentially get to but we'll see i got my gps on my phone and that's what we'll be following well it's snowing again believe it or not quite a bit too so right on our hike go and check out the situation.
Some tracks here refresh it's a freaking white out over here i really need snowshoes almost i just said that exactly this is a lot older okay but you can see how much snow there was like there was tracks everywhere in here yesterday yeah there was and they're.
Gone well we hiked around for quite a bit saw a few animal tracks some recently yeah some uh not so recent definitely some out this morning a few few deer tracks that were since it snowed last night yeah.
But the uh got another weather report on the phone and it is with the windshield with the windshield with negative 18. nice yeah so negative 14 celsius for real with the windshield negative 18 and uh big gusts of wind and a bunch more snow so we're just stocking up on the.
Wood splits them down got some smaller stuff here too so that's the name of the game today and also eating food eating food is gonna be a big part of this trip i think there's nothing wrong with that we're all living here out here man we're comfortable so i'm excited for that so.
With that note wood processing wood processing montage i brought this trail camera i'm going to set it up over here there's a lot of action coming in out of this hole we saw it yesterday and then even today after the snow.
See here the tracks the trail going right into there so it's definitely a burrow i'm just interested in what it is the footprints yesterday look to be like the size of like a fisher oh you know what i think it's a porcupine i could be wrong but there there there's.
A porcupine chew in this like a big porcupine chewing this uh big spruce right above this hole could be wrong but oh no there's a bunch of them probably is all right well hopefully that yields something i don't really want to walk on this.
Trail but i'll show you the see the bear patching the spruce there and then up there again on the bark he's eating the cambium layer i believe the bark so it makes sense and they usually dent up on something like that too so anyways we'll.
See hopefully all right well we're back at camp now no luck tonight but that's all right got some really good footage on the gopro uh the blizzard coming in and sitting there it was a lot of fun sitting in there just kind of waiting but anyways we're back at camp now it's gonna be supper time soon tasha's over.
In his tent cooking up i got this super old school camp stove i don't even know what our camp stove toaster sorry it's a toaster to toaster breads i don't know me oh coughlins oh old school coughlin's made in uh winnipeg manitoba winnipeg.
Manitoba winnipeg manitoba canada check it out super old i wonder if there's a year on it guaranteed to make perfect toast on all popular makes of gas camp stage well this isn't gas but we'll figure it out all right mr tasha what'd you do.
We've got some rice some tandoori chicken like uh i guess it's like chicken tikka and some naan bread oh my goodness there you go now my vintage toaster there this is gonna give him the rice looks a little perfect i see about that what's that it won't be spicy.
It looks it shouldn't be yeah it looks like the type of food that's spicy done well it it can be but this one okay i'll give you that i'll oh we'll see we'll see actually i gotta be completely honest i don't eat this food often this type of food that's really good.
Tender is all hell too tendery tendery tangerine i think it's cold a lot of new snow yeah oh my goodness dude so much snow it is cold.
Yeah really pretty good morning it's just after six we're gonna get up and get out there for first late got a bunch of coals and a stove still i woke up right three times just took the fire over of course the night i don't know how cold it is out there but um.
I just got out of bed and i can feel the cold even with the embers going so oh well we're back from this morning out there no luck but it's not a wasted time it's it's a good experience and it's a good scouting mission and stuff so it's very cold.
I think i might have frosting up on my hand but i'm gonna get this uh this fire going again and cook up some breakfast it's my turn to cook so we got those shavings from last night let's get this fire going all right i forgot my eggs so we're.
Splitting up breakfast this morning old ta she's got the eggs on over there from one tent to another so we got uh breakfast sausages everything bagels this one's probably getting there and i've got some swiss you like cheese you like swiss.
Cheese what a silly question right yep and then i got this secret ingredient put on there too oh no all right we've got little genoa's on top for measure went all over here i thought you know.
Sausage swiss cheese you know bagels and some peppery eggs some peppery eggs i say that and they're too good for your home all right upside down it is look at how big that is that's big like i'm not gonna be able to fit that in my fat boat that thing.
All right that's all i'm playing man oh yeah yeah wow oh yeah okay just pulling up the pegboard some egg up the so i think for today the agenda.
Just hang out eat a bunch of food again we'll get some more firewood relax and then go out tonight again um before dark and then come back and cook up some food we'll call it after that tomorrow morning we'll break down camp but we still have all day today it'll be three nights we so are we have two days of storms.
It's almost been snowing non-stop yeah we got here we just had to break out the snowshoes and go for a hike here it's just magic in the forest the amount of snow on all the twigs and the sunlight hitting the the snow is just.
Almost out of this world look at the amount of snow on this craziness man like a dr seuss tree still pretty cold but beauty day we're just out here we should really be getting some firewood i think we'll get to that it's a little snowy.
All right come on in it's nice and snowy watch your face oh my gosh watch out again just keep your head down probably the best thing oh man.
Heads down just sitting out here again for the last time it's after four we'll be getting dark in about a an hour roughly an hour maybe an hour and a half so we'll sit out here until then let's see if we see anything.
And if not that's okay this is a good learning experience for me i'm super happy to do it i'm happy for tasha's help and uh i'll be ready for next year what a stark contrast to yesterday it was blizzarding like crazy now it's dead silent and calm well back at camp now i got some potatoes cut up we're gonna do.
Poutines uh poutines are potatoes or french fries gravy and cheese curds it's a canadian staple staple so here we are i got the i got the fries go on see it's about time to put them in i think oh yeah nice.
can you hear that and tasha's got the cheese curds and some sausages and the gravy getting made over there bonus it was so very cold out today we were hiking around and doing our thing but i'm still trying to get warm my my toes are pretty cold here.
But uh it's nice man it's nice to have these like portable homes to come back to these freaking hot tents are a lifesaver i don't know i think i might try to do an extended camp this winter after christmas or something come out for a couple weeks.
And try and just be sufficient here i'll bring the not in this location but be surprised in this in this tent i'll bring the table and maybe a generator and excuse me cooler food maybe a 22 who knows see if i can get a bunny or something like that just kind of live out here make a little short series out.
Of it that's kind of cool i know this trip this video is a little bit different it's mostly us in here eating and stuff but that's how it is it's cold um that's all we're doing basically in the daytime we're just kind of hiking around and talking and stuff so i'll show you a.
Little bit of that but you don't need to see too much of that right so anyways i'm having a lot of fun it's a good trip i'm learning a lot i'm happy tash is here to show me and keep me company and have some fun with us eat good food and introduce you to his channel and stuff.
So anyways cooking up some french fries we got salt i got salt we got our fries we made and we got cheese curds from st albert courtesy the tosh their squeaky cheese so that's the.
Secret ingredient you can't use mozzarella okay you can't mozzarella is sacrilege oh shoot shoot shoot i took too much there might be some spare another but anyways you do that you break up your cheese curds a little touch if you want to and then you have.
Some gravy over here and gravy melts the cheese curds and then you put pepper on it and you have just a mound of goodness amount of gooey gooey goodness.
Canada all right and to complement we have some turkey sausage with little muttar poutines are real good too i'm gonna miss uh just having you here i'm gonna have to go back to eating like a normal person well you're not gonna believe this but.
It's freaking snowing again i can hear it coming down freaking tosh said it was a little while ago let's go and see oh my goodness he wasn't lying he wasn't lying folks i wouldn't mind.
Oh my gosh what is this nonsense three days of snow and this looks like it's pretty uh decent snowfall again so yeah intense three days of snowstorms campaign a snowstorm for three days that's my title.
Yep three day snowstorm let's go camping they're the biggest you can see them through this head there yeah right see how big pretty cool they're hitting my stove piping like evaporating.
I hope you can hear it through there i wonder what we'll wake up to in the morning how much more snow it's a lot it's a lot in a short time frame good morning folks it's day four and uh we woke up late we're supposed to get up pretty early so that tosh could.
Get a move on this morning pack up and uh and drive his long drive home but we slept until about 8 30. so it's a mad dash now to get up and uh break everything down so he can make it home today it snowed again quite a bit last night as i showed you and it snowed all night into this morning so i haven't.
Opened the door yet we'll open it up and see but that's three days of snow man three days of heavy snow which is pretty awesome staying out camping for the full duration of a snowstorm oh yeah no he got snowed on looks beauty again out here.
Wow oh my goodness well there we have it we're all cleaned up there's my footprint there's tasha's cool piece of wood left but other than that.
