7 Night Wilderness Camping Adventure With My Dog [FULL TRIP]

I head out into the wilderness with my dog, Monty, to spend a week canoeing, portaging, fishing, eating and viewing wildlife and the beautiful nature. We encounter all sorts of weather and have a blast!

Permethrin Tips
Always follow directions when using permethrin as it is very toxic in its liquid form. It is extremely toxic to cats! Wear rubber gloves and be careful until it fully adheres to your clothing.
The brand I use is Martins. I dilute it at a ratio of 19 parts water to 1 part Martins permethrin. I completely soak all gear in a 5 gallon bucket of this solution for perfect coverage. I do all clothing, then get some on my muckboot foam top part, my tent, and a bandanna for Monty. I have tested it with finding a tick and letting the tick crawl on my treated clothes and the tick died within 10 minutes.

  • This trip was a blast and was definitely was some of the best canoe adventure fishing I've ever had. The other adventure was trying to get this video live by 10 am today. I got it uploaded at 10:23 am. It was uhhh.... quite the amount of good times getting it here close to on time. Hope you guys enjoy! I will have the extended versions ready in a couple weeks as I am heading out on another adventure with Captain Teeny Trout and won't have time to edit them currently!

  • Seems like it would be worth it to always go long-sleeves on these types of trips for protection from the sun as well as insects. I used to think it would be too hot, but living in Florida I've come to realize that long sleeves are fine up to 100 degrees as long as the material is thin enough. Pants and shirts with vents are the best, of course. If the sun or the bugs get too extreme you can throw on lightweight gloves or a mosquito net for full protection. Just seems easier than dealing with messy and stinky creams and sprays.

Not only do I have a fish phobia and don't like looking at them, I'm also vegan and never watch the cooking parts in any of these videos. So there was quite little to watch here for me, but I still just love this channel so much, thanks to both Matthew & Monty!

You gotta talk more like you used to Matty….. look back on some of your earlier vids. You used to be funny….. now you’re stupid funny….. sorry. This new stupid you doesn’t suit the guy I know, unless you’re going for a real dumb outdoor guy comic award …… “dumb guy out camping”. I seem to be skipping through all your repeat behaviours, are you on CD…..?? haha Please don’t be that guy. lol ?? Singing …. Its got worse…👎 Fishing and Monty still great 👍🤓

  • Hi Matthew. I think Monty had the most most fluffiest bum ever, but you weren't far behind. What a great fishing trip you had, and the meals you made looked fab. I thought your editing must take you hours as you go back into the archives, but always a pleasure to watch again. I've only just finished watching this one and I'm off to watch your latest video. Thanks for making such entertaining videos and for the laughs. You take Care & Stay Safe. Hugs to Monty & Rueger. Uk

I was definitely living vicariously through you and Monty. 56 fish in one week is one great week. Needless to say, you should never complain about being skunked on a trip in the future. I can't wait for the extended version of this.
