The time to act is NOW!
Hey guys how you doing Joe here I'm with tripper who's out at the debris shelter I just wrapped up shooting on video completing the shelter and while I was over here I thought I wanted to talk for a little bit and put into a different video I'd love to sit here and have a fire while I'm talking but that's part of the problem I'm indeed poor tripper.
Stop in Ontario there's a fire band now what they're saying is that they want sorry I gotta go see what he's doing okay tripper there's nothing there man sorry about that the reasoning they're giving us for a fire ban is not because it's too dry or anything like that it's super early in the season everything is wet there's.
Still snow around here but it's that they don't want any emergency crews being potentially taken up by a potential fire or something like that when they could be needed for other emergencies around that's what they're saying it really sucks I'm not gonna go against it and I don't suggest that anyone does but listen to this.
Sure you can go on a canoe trip or you can go on our camping trip and use it a stove a portable propane stove whatever the case may be isobutane but I'm not gonna go on an ISO spring new fishing trip without the potential or without the possibility of having fire you can its potential life-threatening situation right so if I.
Dip in the water that water is numbing lis cold like hypothermia is right like that if you're even able to get over the water and get to shore and light a fire your chances are still slim but without being allowed to light a fire I'm not just gonna roll over and be like well you know what I mean like whoops guess I can't won't live anymore cuz I can't.
Have a fire but like I can't very well do that on video either and again I'm not saying that you should not saying you should do it off video I'm just saying I go out I film my trips and if I don't have the possibility for having a fire on a spring canoe trip that's dangerous it really just is a dangerous situation so.
Things have to change thing everyone has to change this this has to be an eye-opener for everyone this whole situation right it's already late and if you're like I am and hadn't really been taking prepping seriously so listen prepping is always on like the verge of like what I what I'm into right like the camping.
Bushcraft survival has a prepping crossover aspect but I always just ignored it because they didn't care about it and I'm not wasn't concerned about it what I was concerned about personally was being able to get out of the woods if I needed to or to be able to live in the woods if I needed to until help Caine or things like that or.
To be comfortable in the woods right to know what to use in the woods when I'm there for what but Trevor can you lay down down down down down all the way thank you but I ignored the other part of it and kind of I don't want to say scoffed at it but I just didn't really care because anything was important well now who's laughing guys yeah honestly.
I'm not saying we'll become a crazy proper I'm not saying you need to have a way to you don't have to have like a bug-out bag or anything going down what but I'm gonna get home bag just a get home bag might be a smart idea to start with right like so here's my thinking and if I need to get if I'm gone somewhere I have to only supplies.
Wherever my even if my truck just breaks down this is this isn't even like a crisis situation this is I live north the situation and I should have everything on my truck ready all ready to get home if I need to you know what I mean and I have odds-and-ends thrown in here there but I never really had a dedicated truck bag I had a dedicated.
Truck tote that I had things that I could use for while I'm in the truck if I broke down I could like camp out in the truck but to never get home you know I mean never never something get home and now I don't want I'm not leaving my family you know I mean I'm never gonna leave my family now for more than like a day or two at a time well this is going.
On it's just not gonna happen so if I'm out somewhere I live an hour away from the city if I have to somehow get home you know what I mean for some reason I want to be able to go home so I packed a small bag put it my truck if there's interest you know what I'll make a video about that but I'm not trying to preach doom and gloom here.
At all uh and I'm not trying to have the wool over my eyes either you know what I mean I'm trying to see this for what it is I want you guys to as well I have people on my livestream commenting that this isn't even real this is all fake come on I don't care what your opinion is of how it started or how whatever the case may be the politics any of it.
Behind it the reality is there's people dying people in Italy people in New York it's just it's happening right this isn't made up and I don't care what it came from and I don't care how it came I do I do care but right now that's not my concern you know what I mean and it shouldn't be your concern your concern should be.
Taking care of you yourself your immediate family and then being able to try to help other people if you can this isn't gonna go away for a very long time and the world's never going to be the same again period I don't care if you disagree I don't care what that's the case no one's ever gone through something like this and especially in.
Our lifetime my lifetime so it's gonna put a damper on camping for me the type of camping I want to do for sure I want to go on canoe trois canoe trip and canoe spring canoe trips well while fishing are we my favorite kind of video to make my favorite kind of trip to go on Bar None like it's what I love to do and I'm not gonna be able to really do.
That this year but that's okay if that's all that comes of this then we're doing all right you know what I mean but I'll still be able to do videos I'll still even without a fire I'll still be able to go camping I'll be able to use my stove I know it's not gonna be as nice ambient wise for myself and to watch but it is what it is you have to follow the.
Rules and they want you to they're trying to do things for a reason and Machar I'm not trying to fight that you know what I mean I'm trying to go against the grain or anything so yeah you guys we all have to stay home you know I mean this is nonsense I have a lot of younger viewers so I really implore you just to stay home right now.
Like this is when your parents go to work and stuff don't be sneaking out and like just just do what you're supposed to do right now try to try to you know flatten that curve as they say using phrases like that but it is what it is it's gonna be Easter very soon and maybe this is a good time for Easter maybe.
This is a good time for us to all just kind of slow down a little bit and try and think of what really matters and yeah and if you're a religious person then this makes sense it's you know for to be around this time and I'm sure we all need a little bit of God in our lives I'm not trying to get preachy with you I myself more than a lot of people.
Meet it I was raised in the church you know I mean I have been practicing for years but I know all about it and I don't disagree with it it's just it is what it is right now for me but it is a time of reflection to you know I mean in time of thinking what's important and getting give yourself better bettering yourself by learning something by.
Learning something useful maybe by learning something that you could use in the potential future here where maybe we're not gonna have so much help and we're gonna be have to be a little bit more self-reliant self-sufficient so I know that's what I've been doing lately trying to learn a few things here and there and not worry about so much about.
Going camping and what my next trip is and how I'm gonna get my next video out and things like that I'm still gonna get videos out all the time every week it's gonna happen it might be a little bit shorter like I said oh man and I got a lot of people just so confused so when I made that video Santa was willing to make 10-minute videos I was dead serious.
And then I got like inundated with ideas and people offering their Internet services to me and things like that like I've started by parking couples parking garage driveways and uploaded I've gone into a random open apartment that I got allowed to go in and use us later for two hours with my last video upload it and I'm driving to our like I'm doing it.
You know I'm getting my videos uploaded regardless it's happening but and then everybody's at allyou only built joe says please only put up ten minute videos it's like I even explained it in the next video in the thing I'm sorry I'm sorry for putting up blogger videos for you guys you don't it's like things change guys things change and and when I.
Put out a video saying that and I get inundated with responses of how I can do it better and people offering the services to me I have to take there I have to take him up on that right I'm not gonna just be like no I I said I'm only gonna make 10 minute videos so that's no I want to put out longer videos you guys want longer.
Videos my 10 minute videos don't do well they don't get good views so therein therein lies that the proof right but anyways yeah I'm trying to better myself I hope that you guys are doing that too I hope that you're holding your family dear and staying out of populated areas now I'm gonna be hope crossing my fingers waiting for the day where I can.
Go on a canoe trip with a fire but until then we're gonna figure out what we're doing maybe tripper and I'll go on a backpacking trip listen all the parks are closed again right I heard in Florida no sorry in an Australia one part of Australia they're not allowed to fish right now and if I'm not mistaken.
Indiana you're not onto a camping that might have been a broad statement but in Ontario provincial parks are closed the parks even around here like to take the kids to are closed and everything but there's still crown land I can still access crown man I can still go on four-wheeler trips you know what I mean I can still do backpacking backpacking I.
Don't really mind doing without a fire because I can hike until nighttime and then cook up my food in my stove and go to bed maybe me and tripper will do that a two night backpacking trip tech thing there's places around here I can do that that I don't have to go into a park floor so anyways this is all gonna take a lot of adjustment I think we all need.
To act right now especially the people who haven't acted before and get get your supplies well you can order stuff online well you can and get your house in order well you can get your family in order to get everything in order if you have to go to the dentist go to the dentist right now you know what I mean because you might not be able to do that.
In a month my sister's pregnant right now so I'm sure all that's gonna be fine I'm sure it's all gonna still function fine you know I mean I hope so that's that's my my prayer but um there's a huge chance it won't so again not a doom and gloom type guy at all just a reality reality of the situation so let me know what you guys are.
Thinking please refrain from being ridiculous in the comments about this I like people are getting hurt this is affecting people's lives and stuff let's be a little bit civil okay so thank you thank you guys for watching thank you guys for all the support I'll probably do a live stream again next week just keep in touch you know what I mean.
Everybody's doing them right now everybody's at home so me and tripper are gonna get out of here go edit some videos chop some wood that's another thing I got to keep chopping off all that wood man I want to save my propane you know what I mean so grasshopper in the ant style you guys have a great day thank you very much for watching my.
Videos stay safe be kind to one another stay inside help someone out if you can love yes all right trip let's go go no bums wet rope
