Fall Camping on a Riverbank with My Dog

I head out into the woods with my dog Monty. We paddle in a canoe down a river to find a spot to camp during the beautiful fall colors. We cook up some delicious food over a campfire and have a blast!

  • U don't have to burn food and have cold on the other side. You pull coals from three fire as needed into a "keyhole" fire lay. The square or rectangle side is fed coals as needed to keep the temperature perfect. I learned this over 50 years in cub scouts... It works!

You are trying to paddle a canoe, by yourself down a stream littered with dead falls, and trying to fish for trout all at the same time. While filming, at the same time. Choose one to do at a time and do it well. That said, I love your channel!😀🐾

  • Have you found an advantage of using a canoe over using a kayak?

    SmiffSmiff6 ай мурун
    • For river travel, I would say they are preference. The true advantage from a canoe comes in the portage. When you have to keep taking your gear out to travel from lake to lake, a kayak is a severe pain. My first wilderness trip was 2 weeks long and I took a sea kayak. Every portage, I had to unpack my kayak and pack a dry bag, then portage, then unpack my dry bag and repack my kayak. Needless to say this took forever. With a canoe, you just pull up to show, grab your already packed dry bag, portage, throw the bag back in the boat and keep moving!
