Spring Bushcraft Camp With My Dog

I head out into the woods with my dog, Monty, to build a bushcraft shelter and cook up some gourmet food over a campfire. The usual shenanigans ensue and we have a good time!

  • Lord Darth Montious, The Song of the Pad, The Mushroom People, You can only choose one, which will you choose. There were a few silly scenes in this video that added up to a couple of minutes altogether. The 24 hours I spent in just editing those and making them is the reason for the late upload. Sorry bout that. I have had a lot of people ask me recently how they can best support the channel and with Monty's current health issues (for a Monty update click here: kgflow.info/title/eoaTmIRqdK6ge3k/video ) and I will tell you the best way: Watch this video and others on my channel, always click the like button, share my videos wherever you can, subscribe, hit that notification bell and leave a comment! All of these things help the KGflow algorithm more than you can imagine and the best thing we can hope for is more people viewing Montys fuffy booty! Thank you everyone for all your support!

  • Look for your camera gear on MPB. Good delivery service of used gear. I get all my stuff from there. I’m not entirely sure how to video the moon but photography is pretty easy. A couple KGflow videos will explain most of it. But you can get a beautiful night sky with most lenses as long as no light pollution.

  • Matthew, I don't know if I should give tips to the king of camping but here goes. Take the center pole and flip it 180 degrees and then stand the legs up, the force of the rope helps keep up the structure. That is how I was taught to make a tepee back in the 1960s and it works.

  • As you lay out all your food that you are taking with you, after figure out what you need to chop, peel, slice ,fry,, boil, check it all off, before you pack. Packing is last, thing to do don't for can opener if needed. Lay out all food and tools needed to cook. Pack LAST!

  • Its just sad that you cannot stop teasing Monty, you just do enough to get him going ….to jump… then you apologize “ok ok ok Monty”. Stop it right now and also stop the sleeping pad game or I’m gonna sick Funk on you. I usually like your videos, but most of this was as boring as heck…. and Sir Monty was not the cause of it one bit. All praise Monty.🐾 Lilli

  • Hey Matt I know you're such a nice guy you have to say what you say.. I'm a bit of a dick... when I have people come over, I ask if they have a food allergy! Other than that they eat what I cook or they go hungry!!! I don't think I've had anybody ever leave the house and go eat dinner! (Maybe because I'm a good bartender too).. but People like food and love to be surprised! Food, music, and family are tightly wound together along with 3 other senses!!?? Stress, love, and...??? In any situation the best cure for heartburn is baking soda!! Half a teaspoon 8 oz of water and a beltch that burns your nose like you chugged a big glass of ginger ale!!!!!

  • Matthew, Matthew I am at a lost for words. When the Teepee set up didn't work out for ya, I chuckled a bit. But then when you did the "Song of the pad", and "A dance with fate" my chuckles was becoming more of a loud laugh. But I tell you, when you did the "Mushroom people," I simply could no longer contain myself. I lost it and broke our in tear jerking hysterical laughter. After I composed myself, I forwarded your video on to my friend. Your content is absolutely the best out there. Keep up the great work. Love to you, Funk and da boys.
