Tenting out Overnight with my Canines – Trippers First Backbacking Budge segment 2-DOG STEAK-DUTCH SHEPHERD
Black flies hey buddy i know i know buddy get on back uh i know believe me i know i know they're all up here on the exposed rock super late in the year for black flies but that's how they are up up north here they're.
In the dry arid spots later on in the year which is weird because uh they breed in moving water they're killing them anyways we gotta get out of here there's a supposed to be a campsite this is bear mountain there's supposed to be a campsite up here not not too far so go check it out the thing is i'm like.
Halfway down the trail and if i camp here then tomorrow i have like half the trail to do still and if i go all the way i camp near the take out but it's on a bigger lake and it might be but there might be some people there so i'd rather camp back in here in these back lakes but we'll see we'll see how it is we'll see.
How they can if the camp is super nice i have an option of two different ones if the camps are super nice i'll probably just stay because i do want to have some time at camp and to get firewood for my my steak and the whole nine yards so set up my tarp all that that there's an advantage with the tarp.
You know you can do a lot of different configurations but the different disadvantages at a camp on designated campsites are sometimes there's just not flat ground for a tarp with trees to tie it off to but we'll figure it out no problem and uh that's part of the fun what are you.
Saying tripp you want to get going freaking black flies in almost october sweet i found some labrador tea yeah so i'm gonna grab some of this in case it's not around where i camp so i can make up some tea get some cold and wet tonight which is a good possibility my feet are drenched already.
Sweet you know what i'll probably just do one of these stay here say there's nothing you want right got a survival blanket in there as well it'll taste a little doggy i'll boil it up it'll be fine little extra i dropped something nice that's a score okay.
Bam good boy sherpa sherpa dog what's this i'm a good boy yeah let's go this is all lab tea here it's like oh nice look the trail goes up here oh oh up here buddy um.
I love that call chickadee love it it's hard to tell the camera i know but we are descending like crazy trippers jumping over logs going downhill at a steep angle pretty pretty agile his his paw is holding up great i'm really really impressed really.
Starting to uh enjoy having this dog starting to trust him and stuff hey see what i mean like he was just here waiting for me he's going now because he can see me but like just on the side of this though look at how freaking steep this look doing these switchbacks.
Look at this this is steep this is steep all right buddy let's go this way bud come on man maybe he's got the right path holy smokes okay well to say that this is a trail would be a far stretch i'm having to find my way marker to marker which i don't mind it's.
Nice just a heads up but um yeah i'm back on it now beautiful beautiful spot and very seldom used easy to tell it's very seldom used which is a shame really oh i see a camping sign hello the camp coming through with the dog.
Hello look at that little patch of sun right there pointing right towards the freaking trail to go in the uh the camping spot wow talk about overgrown oh my goodness this is not a trail look there's like a year old trees in the middle of it i guess i don't have to worry about.
Anyone being here look at this there's nothing there's not a trail we found that's crazy okay i think i see something up here but certainly off trail if there is one oh yeah this is it it's a fire ring here pretty calm not too windy.
Oh look at the firewood stacks stacks for days bro certainly a nice spot it's not too late in the day it's only just afternoon we'll see look at the map and decide what we're going to do here water though come get that backpack off here water for sure.
Here oh good boy so this is a pretty nice campsite on a really nice lake get to see that's what i came down off of up there is the lookout on that rock you can see some you can see someone had a fire here off the water.
Trevor state of the water buddy and the camp itself is pretty decent too very big spacious lots of places for a tarp but old joe is not content it's i thought it was afternoon it's not it's only noon now my watch is still all messed up so trevor man give it a break give a.
Rest um let me show you the map of my plan so here's my dilemma i started here right here and today i've hiked up there i took this little detour here and came back and hiked up here like here and i'm here at this camp here on lower brush right there okay so the next camp is.
Just right uh right there on upper brush not too far away and there's no cam there's some points of interest but no camps this is the biggest stretch with no campsites from here all the way down to here and this is like a bigger big section you know i mean like probably.
Almost as big as i just hiked so i don't want to stop here because it's too early if i get to here which i imagine would be like less than an hour if i get there and it's um really really spectacular then i'll certainly consider camping there but if not i'm going to keep hiking and go down all the way down to.
The cemu white lake trail camp so that would mean going so that would mean going from there all the way down and camping there okay then i'll be just that jaunt out but but as it is now it's again it's noon i believe yes just getting to be noon and i'm not ready to stop and this will be a good.
Test for tripper for his his abilities and and how much he can endure and stuff like that so on we go we might do this full full loop today which they suggested not to do come on put your head in right here you know what i want you know what i want you to do bro.
Good boy we died good boy i should have named you digger because you dig a lot tripped me a lot too though and your trip and you tripped me out and my canoe chewing partner hopefully the trip moisture general all right let's go we.
Just came in on the wrong way but the sign said it was that way that's a it's another big real big white pine all right back on the trail goodbye trail this way smiley face cut logs this way okay i'll take your word for it i'll.
Take your word for it a nice spot in here running stream here big old cliff he's falling moss on the rocks a doggo eating leaves sun's shining what a nice day beauty woodland pretty christmas.
What's that buddy it's a big old white pine eh big ol white pie what do you smell what is it hey no no let's not dig in there something might live there buddy i don't want to disturb anything this is straight right up in the tree go in.
Come on okay for real though that's a huge huge tree one of the biggest white pine i've ever seen oh man beauty beauty puncher upstairs a little bit man these aren't.
Don't get soaked this is nice man real nice my hello the camp i have a dog i hate the dog he's dog bark bark.
I hope nobody's here oh wow look in the sun in the sun i feel as one this is nice so that took me through about 48 minutes to get there i thought it would be about an hour about 48 minutes just just roughly 48 i'm not staying here look at this place.
I'm not staying here with the dog we got swamp on either side i'm in a uh a tarp with him high chance of moose coming through here and it's small i kind of probably already made my mind up before i even got here that i keep going i just got to sit down and look at the map again but i'm more than likely going.
To go for the long haul joe style all right we consulted the map right tripper what do you think skill let's go yeah i don't want to camp here and i don't want to stop yet so we're on for the long haul it took me almost seven no six hours to get here started at seven and it's 12 40. so 8 9 10 11 12.
1. so almost six hours to get here i stopped for lunch a couple times i was i got lost on the trail a couple times picked picking my way through and there's big contours i'm looking there's not that many big contours coming up there's a couple lookouts so there will be big-ish but not as big as i.
Hit hopefully and if and i did more than i have to do so if i can it gets dark around seven and it's one now so if i can do this in five hours i'll be there by six and i'll have plenty of light but i gotta hustle i gotta hustle big time and if it gets dark before then i'll just have to camp.
On the trail somewhere which is whatever but uh yeah i'm gonna fill up on water right now because i'm away from all the lakes now for the long haul i'm going to chug a bunch and then fill it up and then we'll get out of here well i think i'm off trail again it's getting hard to follow look check.
This out uh squirrel stashed a mushroom in the tree for drying purposes but tripper where's the trail dude where's the trail though i need to retrace my steps and find some kind of marker because it's been a long time since i saw one and.
This trail is funky so all right this looks like something this looks like a trail perfect ow on a marker all right it's windy slow slow slow whoa that's a drop off holy smokes.
Wow he knows look at him he knows good boy yeah that'll be that'll be a problem okay well buddy as pretty as this is we gotta go be careful bud look at that that's a drop hey relax.
Why not stay there stay stay wow i'm even nervous just putting my camera down there stay there big guy oh that wind well this is pretty epic guys pretty pretty epic all right on we go.
Over the gap good boy good boy good boy tripp oh just beauty just beauty guys super happy to be able to experience this with the dog this is the right time of year trip oh this is pretty in here stopped for a.
Snack in a little bit of water and this guy just lays down next to my pack you know he's tired hey buddy you know he's tired good boy he's out well up and at him dude we're going sorry about your luck let's go landing moose poop just laying in moose.
Poop come on good boy well i'm in the farthest back part you can be and i come across a sweater i believe so that tells me i'm still on the trail i used to leave them but or unless that person got lost and is no longer with us.
But uh i don't know where the heck the trail might be i'm happy to find that sweater i think but uh as far as the trail a lot of loss which isn't uncommon this keeps happening like this part of the trail is super uh i guess remote nobody's coming out back in here the trail's grown over a lot.
And there's lots of trees falling over i'm having a hard time keeping on track but uh we always seem to find it like there it is right there there it is right there we always seem to find it anyways we're still going strong we're making good time feeling good.
Let's go so much land so much wilderness out here look at that down on the ground way down there jack pine black spruce way up there forest and forest of maple birch look at this guy man this is an awesome experience guys i'm not joking good boy hey.
He's tired what a life for a dog good boy you're a good boy and it was so yellow oh yeah this is freaking gorgeous oh my i can't believe this this is so pretty man this is awesome.
Stroke the fuzzy tree oh my goodness wow look at that wild damn nature good boy go he's getting tired he doesn't want to jump over these things anymore come on bud go nice jump bud nice jump you cleared this whole thing a fox i haven't seen a trail marker in a.
While but it looks like i'm on the trail like it's wore down it is a trail so i'm just hoping that that's good enough good boy good boy thank you fell buddy good dog come on i know buddy go okay good boy.
Oh man you're getting tired aren't you a big guy i know you can go around if you want go around go that way around okay come on over this good boy oh good boy well we may be lost not lost lost but i don't know where the heck the trail is.
There hasn't been any markers in a long time pull up the gps on my phone i'm like where i think i am on the on the map and it makes sense i just i'm glad i i thought i was following a little moose trail because there was no markers it's weird because i'm getting back close to civilization pretty close.
Actually like maybe three clicks out or something and there's no markers going this way and i'm sure some people would hike it the other way so it makes no sense this is the most remote part it feels like anyways um stopping for jerky we're gonna keep going.
I think we're making good time it's 2 10 if i can get back in three hours or less that'd be sweet and i think i can i think i can i think i can and not 10 minutes later here is the first sign i've seen in probably over an hour so that's a good.
Bonus especially because i would have went that way well what way do i go this sign is telling me to go that way what the heck this looks okay well we'll go this way and see if there's another sign time to drink the last of my danky water oh we gotta be getting.
Close stripper we're making some good time now it's not too steep it's relatively flat we're both tired he's drinking all the puddles and stuff i'm not too worried about him in the way of water um yeah he's starting to go around logs and wait for me to push brush away from him.
And stuff i said just like 110 barreling over it so i can definitely see he's tired i'm tired too uh can't get can't wait to get to camp 2 30 2 30. i think i'm gonna be there by like four at the latest i think i'm making really good time now all right i could be way off the the map.
Could be way off and i could be way off but i'm hoping for another hour and a half or something good boy i'm gonna give him his food now because uh i'll share my steak with them once we get to camp i think he needs energy.
End up putting his bowl in my backpack on accident last time i'll just beat him good boy we should chew that you're a good boy here good boy 306 for approaching the campsite tripper we crushed this trail bro we crushed this let's go see how she is going this way.
Buddy we absolutely crushed this trail dude good job wow not great not great for a ground dweller with all these rocks here hmm dog is literally laying in rocks you know what i'm gonna do.
Made an executive decision i think i'm going to hike the extra like hour out of here maybe hour and a half and go just go drive up to some piece of land with the dog and camp out tonight get out of here completely go find some flat ground some somewhere comfortable to have a fire to relax spend some time with the dog.
Cook up that steak i did this whole trail i'm fine with uh i just really hate this campsite like literally it's the worst one and uh i can get back to my car maybe within an hour and a half so if i do that it's 3 30 now if i get there by or no sorry it's 3.
15. if i get back to my car say it's 4 30 i can drive somewhere within 10 minutes still by five have time to set up firewood that's plenty of time that's a big big big day i started at seven today so seven i'll be over here by four you know i mean that's a lot i can't do the math right now like nine hours or.
Something like that something like that anyway that's what we're gonna do we're still gonna camp we're still gonna uh cook up that steak and everything i just don't wanna do it here this is basically inhospitable i didn't bring a small i would have had to bring a two-man tent.
Which would have been heavier than the tarp uh for the dog and i the single man would have been fine for me but that was my rationale anyways we're gonna go this dog is kaobe so last night tripper and i camped out at some crown land as well.
We'll go to a different place than tonight but in preparation for this trip so i didn't have to drive the full two and a half hours or whatever we camped out last night in a relative area so i have a tent in there i have a wool blanket i have uh other stuff for tripper so we can be.
Nice and comfortable tonight so in all reality i could have done this whole trip without this big backpack coming back but that's okay i had no idea that i was gonna come all the way do the full loop and uh it's good it's good to practice and.
Train and gain some muscles i'm a little weak little back so it's good for tripper too but i am couldn't lie if i wasn't telling you i can't lie i would be lying if i would if i were to tell you there we go fool me once anyways i'm looking forward to a.
Comfortable sleep tonight with all those amenities a tent and a wool blanket you know in all honesty i wouldn't want it to take any longer to do this like i could have camped out tonight for sure here but um like there was no real reasons to take any longer i took as.
Long as i wanted at the beginning didn't feel rushed had all those lookout points points of interest stopped chilled out and checked i went on that side trail even checked out all the campsites here and uh yeah i wouldn't have wanted to stop before i don't know three at the very earliest.
It was just after three now so not too shabby it's just how it is it's how it is when doug and i went backpacking before a bunch of times just crush it it's like what's the point of sitting around i don't have luxuries in my bag i don't have a like a hammock and a book and things like that i'm backpacking i'm.
Just bare minimum so it's like you get there set up it's kind of laying on the ground wait for dark or whatever which i don't really need to do i can do that at home so i'm out here to hike we're gonna hike but you can tell until i'm getting close to the end here because it's almost like a paved highway.
For me totally different than before i was trying to even look for signs of the trail when i was on it or even finding it at all getting there okay we're getting near the end here put the leash on them.
I'm so ready to be done oh i can see my phone i can see my truck nice oh my god oh there she is i'm pooched man four oh nine eight nine nine hours and ten minutes.
We crushed that tripper up oh well my feet have seen better days we got camp set up i'm gonna give tripper a steak i'm gonna cut it up and give it to tripper i'm not even hungry for it.
I snacked hard on some jerky i still have a sandwich i can make too if i need it but uh yeah trevor deserves that steak don't go in that water hey prick right in anyways let's go down here check this out wow this is a pretty lake no come get out of the water and go on my.
Tent and get everything wet man what you thinking bro what you thinking bro you hungry so look at this i can just pull up here with my car right behind where i am right here i have this beautiful lake all to myself.
A good jumping rock over there for the kiddo in the summertime stay out of the water man anyway it's a pretty lake and out of the water all right come on let's go get you a steak okay oh you have no idea how happy you're about to be steak steak steak tripper gets a steak.
It rained all night last night we were sleeping in this tent and it uh it's still soaking wet from that just being in my truck all day soaked soft bud that's a big eggness something or other two-man tent it's a decent tent holds up in the rain i can tell.
A test for that yeah the rain makes it stick to it so hey hey hey hey hey what should you doing bro you want a steak stay so we made this little pallet table here oh nice oh you know what that wouldn't even have been any good.
No good for human consumption i don't think um it looks a little bit too warm i guess just wait man just wait hey hey relax i'll give it i'll give it to you just i'm gonna cut it up a little bit for you there you go bud trooper you'll love me trippy.
On me good boy you're not going to eat it you're not going to eat it that's what i thought your dog okay then okay so apparently i have a silly dog who won't eat raw steak um that's really weird anyways i've collected.
A bunch of stuff for fire so so i can cook the steak for my dog well that's what we're gonna do hopefully that's efficient you know hopefully that that amount of fire is sufficient and the one of the good things about camping on a crowlands site choose what grill you like.
Choose one making you better feeling okay you gonna be all right hopefully like flame broiled bro what a weird dog most dogs would gobble this up in a heartbeat and freaking tripper needs chef joe chef joe to hook him up hey.
Oh let's go you need it oh he ate no he didn't he didn't psych-sex super psyched let's say i never did nothing for you tripper wonderful eat one here come here one of these okay well you're okay with.
You're okay with medium then all right let's try this again too hot isn't the smoke here come here sure there good boy why is that so difficult man you're a silly dog you know what anyways hope you enjoy buddy.
Oh that's good i'm glad he ate that i'm gonna throw all my stuff in my tent and get on in there and take it take it easy seven o'clock now so another couple hours and i'll be asleep all right in the tent nice and comfy the wool blanket down for tripper and here is his top quilt by ugq outdoors.
