    I like actually seeing the examples and not just people talking about what
    we need to do.

    Just a thought: if you have a spare blanket, or jacket (non-poly), you can
    heat some big stones next to the fire, then carry them into the tent and
    they will act as heaters for a while.

    Enjoyed your vid. Surprised you didn’t mention any more about the fact that
    you slept so cold. Didn’t see an insulated pad. When I go out in that
    weather, I always carry an insulated vest. I have two, a nylon one with
    Primaloft, and a down one for when it gets really cold. Noticed your coat
    didn’t seem like it had any insulation.

    You took two blankets and you were still cold. I had the same problem and
    now only go with either a down or synthetic sleeping bag.

    I never did understand why people keep recommending wool blankets. My own
    experience is that they are terrible in the area of weight to insulation
    value. My synthetic light down bag gets me down to about 35 degrees, at a
    two plus pound weight penalty. When I add my insulated jacket and a down
    vest, I can be comfortable down to 0 degrees.

    I also carry a couple of down booties. All this is incredibly light less
    than one third the weight of two cheap sleeping bags. In winter I carry two
    insulating mats for another weight penalty of only 1/1/2 pounds.

    You certainly don’t need to sleep cold.

    isolation.

    just put a bunch of leaves on the tent, they help insulate a lot more than
    that fabric

    Nice video! Awesome job filming and editing. Not a fan of what you were
    wearing for that kind of a climate, especially wearing jeans though. Jeans
    are pretty brutal during cold weather. And if you get them wet it’s baaaad.
    Only criticism I have, haha. Cheers!

    Great vid! I really like your filming techniques…very creative. The only
    thing I thought was a little messed up was the fact that you rinsed your
    toothbrush in the creek. Just a little constructive critisism! But I enjoy
    your vids….keep em comin’. Peace out bro.

    videos will save many people’s lives in the future..

    Thanks for this! Nice photography. Sharp macros of flowers, dewdrops,
    insects & spiders! It’s funny to think that when we see you leave camp, you
    had to return to retrieve your camera. That was an elaborate lunch. For
    longer trips, try Clif bars, pre-made PB sandwiches, cheese, dried fruit &
    nuts. Save cooking for evening. *All your gear looks heavy.* For quality,
    fairly inexpensive, ultralight gear google *Gossamer gear* & *ultralight
    backpacking*. I solo 7 days in the Sierra Nevada with 21# on my back at
    trailhead, most of it food & water, w/o compromising comfort or safety &
    never burn wood.

    I like the video, but the one thing I saw that I would advise you on is the
    fire at about 2:15. I saw you building it up before you lit it. I suggest
    that you start small and build from there once it’s lit. You may find it to
    be a bit easier.

    Hey amazing videos, also you should try a survival series. Test your skills
    and bring in limited gear like canteen, a firesteel, and either bring food
    for a backup and try to hunt for the main meal, or just eat your food. I
    think that this would be cool. I love your videos. Keep it up

    Best filming Ive seen in a long time. You eat better than I do in my
    kitchen. I would not be carrying all the frying pans, as I use camping
    equipment and its a lot lighter. You do a fine job and I agree with the
    watch idea. But even though I use a digital, I can draw the time on the
    ground Everyone knows where the numbers are on the watch face, so I draw
    the time on the ground with the hour hand facing the right direction. That
    gives me north or close to it. I liked the bannock idea. I’ll try that next
    time. Oh and I do the Appalachain Trail in mid Pennsylvania. See you there
    if you come east. RON W.

    grab yourself a watch that is not digital, as long as it has hands you can
    use it as a rudimentary compass just in case you forget that
    compass…regardless, good job bro

    You can hike a lot faster and longer with a backpack with a waste belt, a
    lighter cook set and a sylnylon tarp.

    Nice camera work. You are definitely ready for a 2nd camera and a more
    advanced video ecitor.
