Is our spot. I'm starting to savor. It out with the shovel, take some snow out, we. Got a. Nice. Fire. Going to warm. Up if we're cold, and. Then we got, all. Our gear, to. Set. Up the tent the wood stove and everything. And. Yeah, there's some firewood for tonight so lots of work to do see, you guys later. Hey. Everyone it's six, o'clock now we got a legit. Bonfire, going on we just thrown. Some. Big, logs on the fire get. Some coals going we've got the tent set up I had. To heat up the camera. Inside. The tent for a bit. It's. Pretty, cold let's, go see, how. The thermometer. Is we're. Preparing. To, set. Up some beds. Two. Logs and then spruce, boughs. Our. Gear. I. Bought. A bigger. Thermometer. Easier. To film. Wrap. -. 31. Or. 32 31. -. 25. Fahrenheit. Soul. It's. Almost a full moon tonight. See. If I can. Film. It yeah that's the moon up there, try. To zoom it and take a few pictures. Yeah. Let's do some. Some. Beds now. And. I'm. Just using the smaller. Branches. So. That I don't have the bigger stuff. In, my, back it's not really. Necessary. Right now because we do have like our camping, mess but, at minus. 30 tonight we'll. Be happy to have that extra, layer. Of air, or isolation. Beneath. Us and plus it smells, really good, a, little. Thick in here but so, cold the branches, just, break. Just crack like if they were, really. Dry. Like. Well. I'm going, going. Down just like if I was, patching, at our roof or something I pick. A handful. And. Have them all. Facing. The same way and. Plant it, aside. Like that. Then. Keep doing that but one here here keep. Doing that and. Going. Down. Laughter. OH. And. Add some more, boughs.
Where There's gaps. But. It's not too bad. Starting, to cut a little bit of wood for. The. Wood stove for tonight. How. About a nice bed of coals here so. Cooking. Our steaks. So. For the steaks, I, forgot. The grill so we're gonna go caveman, style I got a nice bed. Of coals there, and throw the steaks. Directly. In there I. Like. To do my steaks caveman. Style every now and then, it. Tastes great. Like it tastes, doesn't. Taste smoky, at all. And. The, ashes that stick on it like, there's not that much ash is really. Just. Blow a little bit. Get. It warm. When. You turn on the light it really looks like it's. Ashes, but it's actually really, really. Hot coals. Hard. To film at night. Steaks. Were awesome I'm just throwing out the plates. Split. Log. Plates. There. You go dishes, are done. And. Let's go see. What. The weather is. Looks. Like minus. 33. Yeah. We're finally gonna test. This a thick. Kanga tent out. In the cold. Real.

To take our sleeping, bags out of the compression, bag in advance like a few hours, before, going to bed so that they. The. Down can have the time that fluff up a little bit dorm. Some air. See, how it's gonna. Play. Grow. But. I ordered you a vegetable. And peanut, pad thai happy. Yak express, these are. Needed. Quebec we're gonna try, these. Got. Some peanut butter in there to add.
