I went to woods at 29th of April to test out my equipment and stuff. I also tested the action camera I bought in cheap store. It is Probiel brand, G22 model, SJCam’s fake. Its performance is not so terrible but is not so perfect either. I published a Youtube video about the camera, also I will add some pictures in this post, so you can see its photograph quality.
This is the ground where I place my tent. Please ignore the timestamp, because I haven’t set time-date on the camera when I was record these pictures and video.
After I pick the flat surface to set my tent, I cleaned the ground from twigs and stones.
Here is the tent, poles, pegs and tent bag. Bagged size is roughly same as a middle-age man’s leg size. 😉 Okay okay, I’m lazy to take it from my backpack and measure it by both metric and imperial system; so I gave leg size example.
After I install the tent, I dig a fire pit, gather dead wood, gather stones to build fire shield. The forest I went in has no river, so I had to bring a 5 liter (approximately 1.32 US gallons) of water with me. I used old canned food can to boil water. I used that boiled water to make coffee, cappuchino, and even soup.
Here is right side of the tent. I did not cut any living branch from trees, all the woods you see are dead wood that gathered around.
And this is left side of the tent. The problem is that I couldn’t calculate wind direction. After I start the fire, all the smoke filled in my tent. I should set tent and fire pit to right opposite direction but well this was the “test” camping. So I learned from my mistakes. 😉
Here is the fire pit after burn some woods and made a cup of coffee.
Also here is the Youtube link to test the action camera and it shows the fire burning (and smoking into my tent): Probiel G22 Test Video
P.S.: This is not only movie review blog anymore. I am planning to blog my trips and stuff. For now I don’t have professional equipment but with time I am hoping to get good equipment. Thanks for reading. Have a perfect day on purpose. 😉
