Bitterly Cold Winter Camping in a Hot Tent with My Dogs

I head out into the woods in the bitter cold to spend the night in my hot tent with my dogs. During this winter night the temperatures get quite cold. We cook up some delicious gourmet food and have a good time!

  • Loved this….I have 3 rescue dogs that we saved from death row over in Australia and love to camp with them. Not always easy as we have a lot of restrictions not allowing dogs in a vast majority of Australian bush. So sadly my puppies will never see the snow.

  • Love your channel. Back and the 50's my grandfather had lumber camps back in the woods of northern Ontario. Only way in and out was by boxcar with stops only at mile posts. Log cabin, musty mattresses and a cook house. Best food ever. Drinking from the spring like other beasts of nature. Not exactly as your travels but the freedom you feel is nothing you can compare with. Thank you for your adventures.

    • @Paul Gul It's the one I use on my DSLR all the time so you can check out my videos for how it sounds with multiband compression added. At -40 I was in my sleeping bag trying to stay warm so I wasnt recording any sound at all hahaha!

      Matthew PosaMatthew Posa2 ай мурун
    • @Matthew Posa, many thanks for your answer. Is Rode Go suitable for field recording nature sounds, or only for recording voice? Did you use this mic under your cloths or in the open at -40 C Degrees?

The food you cook truly inspiring. They may not look good but I can sense the great flavor it gives your palate. You made each trip so easy and food wise you got the entire pantry with you. Great skills set. Chef Marcello.

  • Im just catching up with a lot of videos I haven’t watched yet. Since I already saw how much you drain your batteries on the 5 day trip, I’m wondering: Did you try experimenting with the solar charger pads like from Anker? They seem lightweight and give you extra energy. Best use case would be to charge a power bank over the day and then at night recharge batteries if needed.

    darghedarghe4 ай мурун
    • @Matthew Posa ah, I suspected as much. Oh well, I guess taking a few more batteries is way better than those hand cranked generators. Although I got my parents a Biolite one year ago and the passive power it generates does a good job charging power banks. However then you don’t have the nice natural campfire feel.

Or is it simply just a matter of cleaning up after yourself, taking only photos and leaving only footprints?

I’m a RV camper now but in my 20’s & 30’s I would sleep under the stars on the C&O in VA-MD area. I’m physically unable to do what I did 30 years ago but I kept the tradition going and now my daughter takes her family camping. Nice to see wholesome fun with your camping style and love of your dogs. Mine is my Alert 🐕‍🦺 animal who will be turning 8 in May. Until next time, stay safe and have Fun!
