6 Nights of Extremely Cold Winter Camping in a Hot Tent (-40F / -40C Degrees)

I head out with Jake Ski Guy and our buddy Ken to spend 6 nights camping in the wilderness during a polar vortex. The temperatures are extremely cold and it was the coldest it has been all winter. We cook up some delicious food and do our best to stay warm.

  • Temperature analysis: 3:01:34 My temperature analysis may have been a little off. Or a little high I should say. This article shows a temperature reading 20 miles away from where we were camping. This was the morning after our first night: www.elyecho.com/articles/2021/02/13/new-state-record-ely-area-50 If I had a dollar for every time I camped in -50 Fahrenheit...

  • If I had a dollar for every time I camped outside in -50 I probably wouldn't have to pay rent for a couple of months. I was born and raised in the Jackson Hole valley area. I love watching your videos because it brings back old memories and this old lady can't hardly get from one room to the next anymore let alone camp out in -50. I guess you could say I'm living life vicariously through your videos, thank you for sharing sir!

  • Hello, from Colombia, I have a little idea, for your campaigns in extreme ice storms there is a fan that works without electricity and works with heat and you can place it on top of your wood stove and it will distribute the heat to the whole tent and not so much stop for the cold, I hope you get the idea and you make good videos.

Also, the idiot! playing around with the rifle like a toy swept you at least twice. All good to keep high spirits, but that was incredibly dumb and a bad example to put online.
