  • 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. kgflow.info/title/f6Chm2qemqKsg58/video

Now back to the other 3 hour video I was re-watching for literally the 4th time. ✊😎 p.s. AAAANNNNDDD I make sure to tell and send links to so many other people about his videos

  • Hi Matthew, why was your food on this trip " Vegetarian, no meat for" you ?. I read one of your replies earlier saying the suspension on your truck 🚙🔧broke & you got a flat tyre on the way to this hike & cook. Considering all that & the horrendous Horse flies, you managed to remain in a good humour & still entertain us, that shows how much you care about this channel & it also goes to emphasise how much goes on that we don't see & how much effort you put in. I'm so sorry to hear about your truck, an expense you don't need😤., I'm sure loads of your Subscribers would love to help with the cost, especially as the damage will have been caused by all your off-road driving for your videos. It also means you either had to change the tyre before your hike, in all that heat, or after, when all you'd want would be to get home 😴😟. Super impressed you managed to not let any of that show in the video. Thank you so so much for all the effort you put in to these videos, it is really appreciated & I think about that whenever I watch them. Your videos are always so impeccable but I can imagine the huge effort, time & thought that goes into making them so immaculate. I hope you are managing to have something of a restful week, and are able to get some respite from the heat, hopefully you've been able to do some evening fishing, take care, have a great week, lots of love 😘😘😘😘

  • Happy 4th duder! Darn flies. Hehe... the wife and I were in Black River State Forest a few weeks ago and she got into some hatching chiggers... wow... she was all chewed up with red bites up and down her legs. I was pretty sure she was going to shy away from future trips... she was miserable for a week from the itching. But alas, she is ready for more overland travel trips. Looking to still hit the U.P. this September. Looking forward to seeing what you do next.

They were about 13 when she told me. I thought they never touched it 😆😁😄
