This is good news actually. I wrote I had car accident around 10 days ago. Two kids with bike were hit to our car and one of the kids was in very serious situation. He was in ICU and doctor said “he maybe survives with a very very low chance”. Today I got the good news that he dispatched from hospital and he is very well.
I am sorry about that I couldn’t make any videos recently. I had a car accident and a series of unfortunate events. I just got time to inform you. I will post updates in time. Thank you all for your patience and supporting me.
Finally I activated my patreon page. The reward and goal settings (maybe) will need a tweak but for now they seems OK.
If you have questions, suggestions, or any message please feel free to contact me.
Edit: Forgot to add URL, lol. 😀
I made 2nd camping trip to the forest this weekend. My intention was to make a good video but the camera didn’t let me to do it by showing “battery low” warning in first 10 minutes. However, even despite of the camera disaster I could make some clips and took some pictures at least.
When I got there I walked at least for 45 minutes to find a good spot. While I was walking I saw some guy wandering around. Was the first bad sign? During the day I encountered at least a dozen of people. I personally don’t like much people around; especially in nature. I don’t know is it just me but I feel uncomfortable when people around. I can’t trust others in this country.
Yeah, my new backpack (which is turned out not so comfortable), my tent on it (the blue-orange bag), and my tripod (the water bottle). 😀 Ah also bread and sausage in the plastic bag next to the backpack. Also as you can see my sleeping mat is so big to backpack, I need an inflatable mat instead of carrying this oversized mat. Also need to change tent system because of the poles. If you look carefully you can see the tent poles wrapped in green cloth (actually it was a military underwear before I cut it and make pole pouch), looks like a radio antenna in the bag. Also because of the mat and poles I can’t squeeze the backpack’s top.
In 2 minutes I cleaned the ground from pine cones and place the tent. I don’t use tarp or something to put under the tent. Because ground is not hard and weather is really hot.
Then I attached the poles.
After place the poles it took almost 5 minutes to set the tent. However in that 5 minutes I sweat like hell. Weather was really hot and between trees I had direct sunlight on me. Also I felt I was getting hungry.
So it was the time to gather some woods to make fire and cook. It took 1 and half hour to gather that woods and branches around. Yea, looks like not a big pile but I just don’t like to cut from living trees if it is not a survival situation. I prefer to gather dead wood fallen on the ground.
Then next thing to do was digging a firepit. The dry pine needles on ground are highly flammable. You need to very very carefully to make fire in forest. Especially after we lost 95% of forest around the city. Yes 95%… But only 15% of it lost by fire. The percent lost because of touristic places (i.e. hotels) built. Yea, it is a shame…
Look close to the firepit. Deep enough to make big fire. Around 30 cm (~12 inches) in diameter.
I also found some woods left by some picnicer. I guess they tried to make swing or something for kids.
Finally the reward of the hard work. Black coffee and sausage in bread. I can’t say “yum” but better than nothing. 🙂
Later in evening I made same meal again but half of sausage turned into coal. 😀 I really need to learn how to cook things properly.
Ok I put Youtube video here but I prefer you to watch it on Youtube website. Please don’t forget to click “Like” button if you like and support me if you will, so I can make more quality videos than current ones. Thanks again.
Ok this post will not be long, on the contrary will be very very short. I embed the video below, so you can watch it here or on Youtube, whichever you like.
First time I recorded a video with my own voice. And yes, I agree with you, I don’t like my voice either. 😀 You will learn the reason later.
Well, here is the video. Enjoy!
Finally my backpack arrived and I recorded the Youtube video without losing time. Fortunately there was a cloudy weather when I recorded the video, so the clouds made a natural diffuse lighting. Natural equipment hehe 😉
Ok lets put pictures. 🙂
This is how it look like when folded. Looks so small but when you unfold it, it gives enough space (except my tent poles, lol). Its measurement is 30 x 45 x 63 cm. (appr. 12 x 18 x 25 inches)
This is how it looks like from behind when its folded.
Then unfolded back view.
Unfolded front view.
Here is Youtube box opening video: Box Opening: Backpack
Hello again. Here is yet another box opening post which I did on same night with the tableware box opening. Unfortunately the picture and video quality very poor, so I won’t upload the video to Youtube.
Ok lets add some pictures.
As you can see, the bag put into a transparent plastic bag, nothing special. The kit has no brand, no model, just a China made product. It is very cheap that I can afford (because I’m unemployee) but still a good product, better than none. 😉
The bag has two loops, so you can attach it to a carabiner. On its back side there is nother wide loop for you can attach to your belt.
The bag comes with some first aid stuff included inside. Here is the list:
1x first aid bag
1x PBT bandage
1x Self adhesive plaster
1x Non-woven fabric adhesive tape
2x Alcoholic tablets
5x Band aids
2x Iodophor bar
10x Cotton swabs
I know the picture is really crap, sorry about that.
