In as far as I could and then I hiked in The rest pulling this sled so we’ve got Enough gear to really get situated for Quite some time out here and we’ll leave It up and just leave it up as a test Uh to its durability and it’s livability A ton of gear like I said Wood stove all the fun stuff A table Here’s my tent the old the new nortec Decent size like pretty hefty but as far As hot tents go And for how big it’s going to be it’s Really not that bad All right Well like I said I’ve not set this up Before and the wind is picking up so That might make it a bit difficult but We shall see Checked it out at home this is the inner Tent Which is certainly not necessary but I Wanted to use it holes Stakes And scent proper Oh it’s a lot of tent a lot of tent okay Well See what we can do here there’s carbon Fiber poles Which are really nice actually Nice and lightweight and Not going to be so cold in the winter Time to touch as metal would be more Aluminum

Set these up they’re not bungee together So we’ll figure out how they go And that wind Looks like there’s two Uh size options for each Uh attachment point Make it smaller or bigger so Pretty versatile I think Oh and then it’s got like five at the Bottom Okay Leave this like this For now [Applause] Well I can’t lie it’s giving me a little Bit of difficulties probably should have Set it up once first but that’s the joke Way we’ve got one steak here sorry one Pull up trying to get this other one in Oh my goodness I’m moving it losing it Folks here we go All the sentences Oh hi wolf please Join me hey buddy okay I’m gonna fix This up quite a bit but Probably start speaking it down now Pretty confidently I think that’s the worst of it just Getting those poles up But it wasn’t really even that bad just Again my first time this is the spot I Camped at In the fall Hey bud

Yeah Okay This tent has a couple really cool Features Definitely Yeah Show you them If I can figure them out myself So this comes out like an awning It’s pretty cool That’s out of the way truly is that all Gears tent with the integrated bugs net In it and the wood stove Jack And all your base is covered That’s too tight over there I think I Gotta loosen it up in the front here Use that as a base of a snowman Okay so she’s all set up nice that’s how I want it I want to get the snow out of Here as much as possible and I’ll be Able to put it on the uh snow skirt on The outside as I’m bringing it out I brought myself a little shovel we use That Snow in here melting If I can get it all out I will Like I said I want to keep this up for a While like a couple weeks or a month and See how she goes I want to have it nice And comfy in here It’s here We get a little base camp Pull over here this might make a

Difference [Applause] I want to get this pulled back because It seems like I’ll get a bunch of extra Room in there if I do so So That’s what we’re doing right now right Now Looks like I can control both of these Tie outs from this one Uh But Who knows if I’m right Who knows do you know Look at that It’s connected Okay I’m just gonna get another piece of Paracord and connect it uh back to that Tree there but look you can see Quite a bit of room off that And ventilation at the bottom All right cool Cool double granny You know if you don’t know knots tie a Lot You can come lay in the tent if you want The guy Another cool feature I’m not done yet a Couple more cool features you know I gotta tie that one out too but Actually do that right now There is a lot of tires there are a lot Of coyotes so let’s keep that in mind Okay

So we have a side entrance on both sides [Applause] With screened in Smoke protection Just said the other side’s got one as Well it can be open even more Tucked over the way Or stake down and pretend like it’s just A solid wall which is cool lots of Options I’m gonna sleep on this side Here it looks pretty flat and I have an Inner tent will set up here too just Trying to get all the bonus trees and Sticks and snow ochia Sticks and snow made suck to sleep on But leaves and ground is bonus Yeah and then you just stick that back Down And obviously if you’re using this Entrance no need to stake it down But I’m not we will The inner tent this is what’s going to Make this place My sleeping quarters separate From my chilling quarters and hopefully Keep the dog off of my sleeping stuff And keep it nice and dry maybe she’ll See so This one I have not opened As you can tell I assume it’s going to buckle yeah it’s Going to Buckle in okay The way this inner tent goes on is There’s a buckle here in a strap system On the top

And you got to make sure you got the Right one because there’s a right and a Left here so I have the correct one I think I’ve got to fix the Strap I don’t know it’s good all right Let’s see if we can get this all in so I Was lucky enough to get North as a brand On Robinette Outfitters and we are Actually selling this exact tent that I’m trying out right now on the site but One of the only North American dealers For nor tent And It’s been one of the best sellers to be Honest with you so if you’re interested Go check out Robinette Outfitters Good boy So check this out I just set up This awning part there’s three and I Want to show you how slick this is It comes with some titles already on it Obviously but there’s a bungee That is attached to the tarp or the Sorry the tent rather itself that can’t Come off that’s always going to be a Cord lock or or chord keep rather for You when you want to roll this up so This bungee is always going to be there It’s on this Loop you could also stick a A hiking pole through this Loop or use This it’s a lot of good options it’s Pretty slick pretty honestly man it’s Super well thought out like I’ve said That before and I’ve said that in this

Video and About the other tenth I have from North Tent It’s like they know what they’re doing It’s almost like they know what they’re Doing We’re gonna get this tied up have our Awning out It’s gonna look cool and then we’re Gonna get uh our fire burned in our Stove we haven’t I haven’t used this Stove yet So we have to burn it in Half the reason I want this awning open The other half is just because it looks Cool oh my goodness it goes there he Goes he’s gone unless I saw something Good Foreign Get Some firewood and get it burned in Losing weight quick all right maybe We’ll open this from the inside how do We do this Okay I know for next time now that I Should roll that up before setting it up I’ll still be able to get it Just be a pain in the butt a bit So this is a new stove I’ve never used This before really this kind before when You see how I like it if not I can Always switch it out For one that’s proven to me but we’ll See

How she goes there’s got a couple things I like and a couple things I’m concerned About to be honest The stove is from Winter well I’ve had It for a while now a couple years just Never got the chance to use it I always Had Michael stoves and stuff that I Haven’t been used to but I figured this Good chance to use this I got a couple Ideas if I can use it a little bit Differently if it’ll work so we’ll see Decent size for in here now I have to Figure out if I wanted the door facing What way I want the door facing my inner Tent looks a little saggy I’m gonna go Home and research what I did wrong I’m Sure I did something wrong but like It serves its purpose certainly like got A good ground sheet here keeps me off of The snow with in this in this bottom Part and I can make this in here pretty Comfortable with blankets and pillows And stuff long term like I said uh and I Can shut it too if I want for to keep Well felt so Maybe I can improve it the next time I Come out like I said I’ll check out Online uh Of service here to look but I will at Home so I can check it online And see and maybe I can tighten this up A little bit but as it is it works like Something way worse there’s no problem It’s just a little saggy for my liking

Anyway Stove Top yeah we’ll have the I think we’ll Have the I don’t know because there’s a window on It too let’s see Have the stove facing me probably And then Wolfie can lay over there or in With me if he really wants to I’ve got His bed here but I imagine it’ll be too Close to the to the uh wood stove for Them because the jack is right there Yeah he’s not gonna lay there Maybe like that Yeah that works fine I’ll just have it Facing that way So these are different these are pretty Solid uh I think just stainless steel to Be honest Big old spark arrestor which is good [Music] I’ll show you the bottom of this thing It’s got a good design you can see here On the bottom it’s got big airflow and This is the grate so it’ll it should Burn really well there’s another Different thing about it That I’m not really used to is this top Part so in my opinion it’s equal from The best of my Knowledge is to be able to Put a pot right on there to boil and or I’m going to use this to grill a steak I Think like that but we’ll see how it

Works because I can see this not being Very airtight I remember camping with Alexis so oh doors and everybody last Last winter I was camping and pretend With her and her guy and this kept Puffing up smoke because of the the wind So we’ll see but anyway Brandon Brandon is his name Let’s see because then this will be the Handle will be up here and it won’t burn Yourself that’s probably good Good call let’s see if the next one fits Into it like that though Just gotta go by size I guess Okay it does Cool all right Let me show you how this damper works Straight forward locks So lots more heat come in And airflow Bucks Dude stop All right let’s get this fire going and Grab some burst bark and some Twigs this Part of the bush is uh never used so It’s lots of stuff readily available I’m At the same same Bush as the fort but I’m way away from it I’ve got a Hundred Acre acres here to play around with so This is plenty is a ways away from the Fort Where I never come Rarely ever come

And the resort And the resources are abundant Abundant resources look how cool that Thing looks I’m super impressed with That tent I haven’t even camped in it yet Freaking one of it A bunch of hardwood look at this Maple right here bam That’s nothing to sneeze at I’m gonna go walk Down the trail Try to find some birch bark I know there is a bunch oh here’s Somewhere here actually this is probably Enough This is Yellow Birch This is actually my favorite for Starting fires If you never heard me say that before Also But Tula elegantensis but you never Heard me see the app more White birches batula papyrifera so you Can remember it as white birch or white Birch bark looks like paper papyrifera Paper paper referia and Yellow Birch is Common in the Allegheny Forest Elegances Bizarre associations those weren’t Actually that bizarre though those Actually make sense so that was yellow And then I’ll take a look at white And this is a very mild case in it but

As you can see very riveting and then Quite papery but it can get so papery That people do calligraphy on them and You guys know it’s Birch bar it’s Freaking Birch bar but been around for a Minute there but All right it’s going good Foreign Well I’ve got the tent title way better Now Lots of anchor points I don’t have nearly enough firewood But I just wanted to make sure I got This block and everything all squared Away before it got too dark I can always Cut firewood fly my headlamp the Residual moonlight We’ll get this uh actually that’s Probably fine to sit there I’ll tamper It down now And uh Yeah let it sit We’ll go try and Uh make a concerted effort to get some Firewood This is a perfect suck Perfect diameter stuff I’m not even Gonna have to split it So that’s bonus Oh Uh Oh what a nice sight I’m really happy with this tent so far What are you even doing right now

Hey Isn’t it cold My ribs feel much better but As soon as I start doing anything I can Really feel it not complaining Who’s explaining my weakness not Complaining just explaining my weakness Plaina just explaining them a week all Right all right I’m okay I promise I got this uh table last year when I Thought I was going to Do a little bit of an extended Winter Camp I thought a table might be nice and this Packs down real small I think I got it at Mac Nice and light and stainless steel or High leased aluminum Some kind of middle The original since 1984. that’s when I Was born what a good year it was meant To be meant to be So you can have it Like that Just like that just one just like that All right All right Table right next to me Cool let’s try and go find my dog Maybe Oh I see him oh I see him Do you guys see him See the orange way over there just Sitting in the field He’s laying down now what a weirdo
