Trip Reports / Snowstorm Solo Overnight - Fun Times
« on: March 25, 2019, 04:04:07 pm »
Sadly, this was the last winter camp of the season up here...spring is now upon us. Such amazing memories from this winter.....31 nights out in all! Enjoy.

Just received this new tent and stove combo this week so it was time to give them a try out in the forest  Initial thoughts are that this tent and stove combo are impressive, but we'll see how it goes after a months use come early April.  The tent performed amazing as always and I have full confidence in any Snowtrekker product.

I was concerned with the stove not coming with an elbow though (Gstove was sold out of these), so i rigged up my own temporary solution to get by...still need some work on that but it'll make do for now. 

I was also concerned with the 2.5" pipe that comes with this stove as I'm used to the 5" that comes with the knife-co's...but I'm so sick of my knife-co stoves....too much warping and messing around and always rusting even after painting....I'm hopeful this will be the long term solution....we will see!  Enjoy the video

General Winter Camping Discussion / Solo Winter Day Exploring
« on: February 25, 2019, 05:06:52 pm »
This one kind of sucked, froze my hands and face and busted a camera lens...but the fire was warm and the Spruce tea tasty.   Enjoy.

The cold temps we've had this winter in the north have resulted in my firewood consumption being drastically increased.  With all other camp chores complete, I made time to take down some jack pine, split them up and get the into the woodshed.  At these temps, I'm burning through a mature Jack Pine every 2 days or incredible amount of wood and the cabin is insulated!  Enjoy and have a great weekend everyone!

General Winter Camping Discussion / Gathering water at -38C

Oh the joys of hauling water in the winter.  Good to see this nice cold conditions and my water hole freezing solid every day! I guess this is better than melting snow, but 15 gallons a day does suck.  Enjoy and happy Wednesday.

Snowshoeing Discussion / Do Snowshoes Work? | Real World Test In Deep Snow
« on: February 19, 2019, 03:15:20 pm »
For those interested, here's a good test to see just how well both Bearpaw and Ojibwa snowshoe designs hold up in deep snow..only fell down twice during this little test  ;D ;D ;D

For those interested, here is a video from day 3 of my trip into Woodland Caribou from this past January.  I've begun settling into the cabin and the daily routine up here, however my solar system has been giving me issues....that'll have to get sorted, but all else is well. Enjoy.

For those interested, I've put together a video that sums up our life up here on the border of Woodland Caribou Provincial Park.  We are fortunate to be able to leave right from our house and access such an incredible wilderness.  So if you have some time, here's 40 minutes of Boreal Forest living, checking out the old trapline and exploring the Spruce forests that we call home.  Thanks for watching and Enjoy!

For those interested, Ive just posted a 40 min video going through my entire -40 clothing, equipment and snowmobile setup for traveling in remote wilderness.  Obviously everyone has their own system, but I put this out to show what works best for me after years of trial and error.  Hope you all enjoy and let me know any feedback / suggestions or pointers.  Always looking for new ideas!  Cheers and enjoy!

Trip Reports / Solo Winter Hammock Camp
« on: January 09, 2019, 10:16:55 am »
A nice overnight solo hammock camp into an area I've never been....the hills look different up here!  Had a nice twig stove fire, a good walk up the mountain and chilled out for the night in my tarp and hammock setup.   If you have 30 minutes to kill, grab a cup of coffee and check it out....enjoy!

General Winter Camping Discussion / Traditional Winter Camp - Video
« on: December 27, 2018, 11:01:37 am »
Just posted another video on my Youtube Channel.....finally able to walk across the lake, a good solid 12 inches of ice underfoot now and we're making more everyday. I hauled a sled for a few KM's to a nice point, sheltered from the wind and made traditional camp using Spruce boughs.....the location is roughly 20 KM from Woodland Caribou Park, so this is crown land and harvesting boughs is permitted. 

It was a good day of enjoying the forest, making fire, cooking up some sausage and enjoying all the pleasures of the north woods.  Have a look if you're interested.  Happy New Year!

Good morning, just uploaded a new video of an outing from last week.  The location is just about 30 KM from the border to Woodland Caribou Provincial Park....lots of good Black Spruce and Jack Pine here to make fire and get comfy and relaxed in camp. 

Have a look if you're interested and please let me know what you think of this style of talking in this one, just 20 minutes of "camp life".  Enjoy.
