My first time Backpacking the Uinta mountains

My first time Backpacking the Uinta mountains


all right guys we’re out here for
another little adventure I’m hiking I actually came up here by myself
and I was walking over to the Droid and met my friend Preston that I’ve worked
with that’s missing stuff over the years and he decided we’d hike together I had
a few friends bill on this trip that we’re gonna make it before what didn’t
and I found him up here like 100 miles away from where I know him from so it’s
pretty cool um we’ve been hiking a little bit I got a whole bunch of new
gear and stuff and we’re gonna look for spot to set up camp but this is our
surroundings right now I forgot failed to mention we’re up in
the Uintah National Forest in Utah I think this is cliff lake I’m not sure
unless the guys over there okay everybody this is I’m chase
Scoutmaster chase I am cavesson Preston Preston all right yeah we just found a
spot for camp and we’re gonna get the fire pit going
get all the tents set up I have to still find a spot for my hammock so yeah we’ll
do all that and then show you guys that later all right so I’m splitting or
batoning up some woods so I can try to start the fire with my batch mate and my
fire steel so I’m just gonna get these split up into smaller pieces smooth I
can make a fire you can’t beat fires steamed tiny button Oh oh no you smothered it party guys so right here I really am
having a hard time trying to start the fire
I think the main problem I was having is I didn’t take the time to make the fire
girls early enough or make enough of them
and I didn’t have a solid base of logs underneath the curls so where I’m trying
to use the knife to strike right there it kept moving on me and the sparks
weren’t landing where I wanted them to and the wood I was using was just a
little bit damp on the inside I should have taken more time to check that first
so yeah I think I did pretty good though right and that’s how you make a fire that’s what I should bring next time is like
something I’d brought some mom will practice come on what you’re having for
dinner use a new stove it’s a cool one look at that
and I am having nothing else turkey dinner
did you ever personally you have beef stroganoff then I’m having the American all-american burger works from packet
gourmet they’re like a outdoor backpacking food company yeah and we had
some awesome tortillas for me cuz I forgot Ransome see how these MRE
tortillas look all right looks like a tortillas
oh they’re so cute that’s probably not gonna be enough for my breathing yeah
little MRE turkeys pretty cool I’m a little back and there’s the all-american
works burger thing let’s see if I can do this that like all over myself everywhere I’m gonna be a grizzly bear
attacking it’s dripping on me all right let’s try the first bite of
these I don’t want that tastes like a hamburger and it tastes like it tastes
like McDonald’s burger we all enjoyed the rest of our dinners sat around the
campfire for a little bit and then got ready for bed good morning everybody copy each coffee coffee so these are jiva coffee cubes I found
them actually from another youtuber online syntax77 I think was his name
they’re cool just little compressed coffee cubes and drop on the hot water
to boiling water and they’ll dissolve and you put whatever else you want in
the bit so this is about to be boiling that’s hot for me all right guys we’re out here at the
lake can’t tell um right out here pretty cool
but I got my fishing pole is the press oh the dial up press over so that’s one
of their backpacking models it’s a four-piece breakdown rod it is a six
foot six rod I’m using a bubble with about a six foot leader and then why not
sure which type of fly it is this little guy here you see that but this is what
one of my friends from work told me I should try to view the fish without here
so we’re gonna give it a shot this type of fishing you have no idea
how long I’m supposed to leave it a help yeah I’m not too sure on how to do this
type of fishing but I’ll keep trying and if I get anything all that you guys know so I probably should have filmed it but
I got a big old not my reel I had a guy at a local sporting goods store put line
on my reel for me and I think he accidentally put a back loop in it on
the spinner out on my ha but yeah so I had to take all who live off take my
reel off I did get fixed so I get all that and pack all this out believe this
here back home I regard so far that’s turning up being pretty
culture guys I haven’t caught any pressure and hanging up I just sitting
here hanging out and having a good time it’s all mine we definitely needed to
get out of the city for a little while and come up here and there’s my first
time to the UN is for backpacking I’ve been up here once with Mike Holder that
butterfly Lake you guys if you want to check out that video I can put it in the
description below or a link it right here somewhere you didn’t even see me
but I’m gonna finish stringing up the Boyar and we’ll try to get fishing again
I’m gonna switch up to this rule Panther Martin number two so
yeah catchy as a minute hi guys I’m gonna be like a little panorama shot of
the way this is the for me right now right side of Islam me right now so chase right
there Scoutmaster chase getting ready to throw
caste they’re people there’s a person yeah I’ll show you guys a full detailed look
at camp here in a little while keep going so so far this has been just
an awesome amazing trip I mean this is probably my favorite new favorite place
to come camping and I’ve got three awesome there are two new friends and
Preston Preston have been my friends since junior high but we haven’t really
stayed in contact get much air in there and we did work together that’s miss for
two or three years but I got sick towards the end of that and flips
because of my diabetic neuropathy and then that cleared up and I’ve never
tried after that so yeah I’m gonna fish here for a little bit more show you guys
would catch anything what he has seen your classes you like him let me know
all right guys first cast side through I got snagged so I’m gonna take over here
and see if I can’t not or I’m gonna hike in the water and see if I can get my
lower back it’s still attached to the lion luckily so yeah I’m gonna go hike
in the water and see if I can get it back so yes my lure stuck hi well a little bit of an adventure what
do you guys think should I have gone for the Lord tell me in the comments I
forgot to film when I broke out the bacon in the twig stove we’re actually
clicking on wood today get a propane stuff pretty good so far I got it on
Amazon for 4495 I cooked all of the breakfast on this wood-burning stove it
did pretty good like one thing I think you could do better is getting rid of
that ashes and debris out of the bottom but other than that the stove performed
awesome and after this we hung out just talked for a little bit and then got
ready for the rest of the day and for breakfast we had four pieces of brown
sugar bacon that they had gotten from Smith’s a box of Hungry Jack potatoes
they come he hydrated in a box and by it your local grocery store and we were
gonna have four eggs but I spilt about three and a half of them on the ground
so yeah party guys I ate breakfast and everything it was really good
I forgot to film again but I’m gonna go down to the lake down this way and go
wash my dishes they’re just dirty pots and pans and wash some dishes for Chase
also I actually I’m gonna pack up tonight and I think moved to a different
lake and these guys are gonna stay here so we’re gonna split up but it was way
cool to find them and meet them again and yeah go wash some dishes and we’ll
catch up see you guys in a little bit all right guys so I’m getting camp
cleaned up here a little bit here’s the tripod I’m using for the camera um all
my backpacking stuff down here like my bag contractor bag which I’m using to
put my sleeping bag hammock and underquilt in and then over here is the
hammock it’s the Dutch word chameleon hammock and the camo fabric I believe
it’s the 1.0 fabric and then I also have my under quilt and the same with the
camo pattern what they have I’m using a kilt e41 for my sleeping bag and it was
plenty warm last night I have my little puffy jacket too so that helps a lot
yeah I’m just gonna slowly pack up camp and yeah I can do a different leg I
think chase is over there use my saw its mood oh yeah we’ll get all packed up here and
get going in just a second you guys hopefully you can hear me at all
I’m making towards Wall leg now I just barely split off from Preston
Scoutmaster Chase yeah it’s a pretty cool little spot so
far I really like it up here in the winners Lake over there guys can see it
at all I’m using the GoPro now it’s much more convenient all righty guys right here I had just
come around the corner and up the hill and was getting the first glimpses of
wall Lake I had accidentally unplugged my
microphone from the camera and put left the cord in the camera so it wasn’t
picking up any of the audio because the aux cord was still in the camera and
right here I’m walking around the corner getting my first good glimpses of the
lake and the rock face right there right there that rock face people were cliff
jumping off of which was really cool next time I go up there I think it would
be fun to try but this just a really cool beautiful Lake I’m sorry the camera
is so shaky but I was still hiking so yeah awesome little lake can’t wait to
get back out there watch the sunset if probably make camp in between those two
trees right there maybe I will make a little fire tonight
there’s actually two that’s garbage it looks like you I’m not very good at this stuff yet but
yeah hopefully that wasn’t too long and boring for you guys I do really enjoy
setting all this up and filming this stuff for you guys but I am carrying
like I’d say at least five six more pounds of just camera gear to be able to
film this stuff for you guys but it’s fun I like it okay guys so I’m getting
my stuff ready just to go fishing real quick I have my Pole and everything
sorry I know I’m out of frame but my pole right here and I have all this
camping stuff set up right under me all that stuff there and I think I’m just
gonna leave it here the lakes just I mean not very far away just right down
there so I’m just gonna go down there throw a few casts I’m gonna bring the
GoPro with me just in case I get anything but yeah I’ll just bring this
camera I’ll bring the full camera so yeah let’s go down there and see if we
can’t catch a fish get more weight on your shoulders yeah I’m gonna switch it up this little
brown that’s not not nearly heavy enough this is what I’m getting here little
brown trout looks like but I don’t have any weight or anything on it so it’s got
nothing to it so I’m gonna go get that fishing kit and I’ll be right back all
right guys so I’m gonna put on this little blue Fox number one it’s got it’s
a little bit more weight to it than that little brown trout so see if that like this thing back into things like a
movie set it on the ground probably it squirt it on the thinker now
and even more than out here so I did this 7-7 twist and then you
thread it back through its I don’t know what that Niles Caulder
that’s the one then I usually just fight off the little
faggot so all righty guys I think I’ll try back
here and a little bit again and see if we can get anything all right
my blood Sugar’s feeling a little just a little bit low so I’m gonna eat make
sure that scroll has not eaten my food yet and check out this little natural
shelter right there I just noticed right Reger my camp that’s way cool middle of the screen all those points
that is a little natural shelter some people go check it out alright guys so
we’re getting pretty close I’m down to my second life battery out of five on
that but I think I do want to have a fire tonight so I found this little tree
just right behind me here I’m gonna cut it up into about footlong sections and
this size I think it should probably be enough firewood for me for one you know
one night and it’s just beginning probably won’t stay up very late one
smells like fat wood right there smells awesome
I probably like running with my hood on but I’m just getting a little chilly
over there this is so cool I love this place yeah so you’re just gonna keep cutting
this up start preparing it for a fire I’ll show you the fire pit real quick fire pit and everything’s just right
here in front of us so there’s actually two right here there’s that one that one
I’m probably gonna use that that one there the little Lauren next all my
stuff so what do you think you guys think tomorrow morning I should do like
a gear dump video or do you just want me to show you everything in a separate
video maybe I’ll do that I’ll do a separate video when I get home
about everything I brought go over pack weight all that stuff thanks for
watching hey guys so I’m gonna try cute hanging a
bear bag I hang a bear bag pretty much every time I come back packing um a
better bag if you don’t know what it is it’s just a bag to keep your foot up off
the ground usually what I do is I take take a stuff sack you know any stuff
random stuff sack that you have and I throw a couple rocks in it and then I
take I attach it to some paracord cord that would be better than paracord is
like a non-stretch go to any non stretch cord I don’t have any with me this trip
so yeah normally just find any limb that’s about I would say eight feet off
the ground ten feet off the ground and take it throw it over this will fall
down off the limb that’s what the rocks are for any weight and it’ll fall down
and you can pull the other end back up with your food so I’m gonna throw it up
over now see if I can do it first try Roberto
never works out Oh guys I don’t know if you can see that
orange line in the tree there but I got it
it wasn’t exactly on my line that I wanted it to be on but it’s better than
what was happening so I’ll take it anything at this point is a win
I got it stuck really good one time and it’s taken me probably ten minutes and
get it back back according to people around here there’s
a large group of people over there that are
kind of partying and playing music it’s gotten arrested with music but then like
no anything screaming each other screamer but again there’s nothing I can
do about it aside I know it’s getting getting a little bit
darker but splitting up some of this wood for the fire it’s just putting
water plate nice neat little pieces drop elected stick a baton stick it’s not working out how I wanted it to
stick slime everywhere my baton stick keeps falling down be nice blob was flat
but that’d be too lucky right to watch as I think you know some tentacles oh girl make up a couple of other coal sticks
and see if we can’t get a fire going here in this second hey guys
he’s kidding a little bit dark and get my fire going I split up all my small
twigs and stuff I’m sorry if this is hard for you to see right now it’s
getting dark I do my headlamp in the back but how did it my smaller twigs up here see
what’s going on guys why is this not working I feel like I’m getting the
right angles and stuff the bad Ferro rod or something what happened hi I’m not fast enough look at that and my barrel rocks and hot in the
garbage or in the fire and my annive scene here
we’re done yes yes let’s put these back away before I lose
them awesome you glad I got that on film for
you guys and for myself what I think to be about 3 ounces of potatoes here these
are the cheddar potatoes and then I’m a few minutes I have to you it says add
again two ounces of boiling water the same pouch and then add nine ounces of
boiling water this and then both sit for a while consistency delicious hey guys
it is raining this is my first rainstorm in the hammock I hope that I got all the
tarp setup tighten up this one right here’s a little close to me but I’m so
far dry it is just sprinkling as of right now I’ve got the other camera
right here under the tarp everything lining the turret besides a fishing pole
I make my pots and pans and I plot some time to refine no don’t worry about that
stuff stuff yeah first string string and hammock I’m amazing so cool hopefully I don’t get away on for
Kristal already checking with you guys in a while give an update on the rain guys got all out of the hammock and
everything I’m gonna got this food bag out of the tree gonna get breakfast out pick up all my bags for each day labeled
I didn’t eat half the bags for Saturday we totally just skipped lunch so that’s
all right I have a breakfast and a lunch in here and today for breakfast
I have diner deluxe eggs with sausage I had this once on the he was the last
backpacking video the Davis Creek Trail I don’t even know if I’ve published it
yet but I’m sure to do that skin um awesome awesome meal so I’m gonna what
it takes to make it says remove all all olive oil packets and natural clay
desiccants add 6 ounces of cool water water to the pouch and stir
press air from pouch seal shake and massage lumps away pour olive oil into a
hot skillet heat to sizzle and then had egg mix pan fry enjoy so we’ll get
started on all that I’m gonna get the everything out here got rained on a
little bit last night so take all that hopefully the stove is not affected by
the rain too much it’s a little wet but I think it should be fine
the other thing I have to find it my lighter I think it’s in my backpack over
there so I’d say there’s a little bit of rain
so yeah we’ll get started on that and then check in with you guys in a little
bit hey guys so I got the pan all nice and
hot umm can I add the street olive oil up a little bit I’ve had their eggs okay picking this up and out here they closed
on the trailer when we’re done I guess so
breakfast is all cooked up seen the picture
try the first bite right here it’s really very good I remember last
time ever
but that’s a result ever on everything bringing a miter saw kind of solid salt is that’s probably my
fault though there’s a little water in there there we go all right salt and
peppered to perfection try another bite Wow oh yeah
then I have my coffee not a bad way to start the morning guys
and I slept well pretty much 11 so yeah scarf this stuff down and probably pack
up camp might stop and fish just for a minute at the lake there’s a lot windier
today than it was yesterday I might even put on my jacket because it’s I’m cold
so yeah morning this and we’ll get going alright guys I got almost all of the I
got all the stuff cleaned up besides the hammock and the tarp still so I’m going
to finish putting this stuff away I just thought you might want to see it again
I’m using Whoopie slings I usually just take one end off grab the hammock this way if you’re careful your hammock
never really has to touch the ground it’s not really I don’t really care
once the time if it does I’d rather get like a perfect hang or all that stuff and then I usually will just roll up the
tree straps and the Whoopie slings and throw one in each side also yeah there’s
the handful down there the tart I still have staked out just a little
bit I didn’t use the stakes this time actually just pick on then wrap them
around their trees here which worked out surprisingly well I never tried it that
way before but you know I was in a pinch last night when the rain started to come
I was not expecting it satin hammock and he’s wondering why sky
flashing and then I realized it was lightning and then crack bit of very
polite in my chart tarp out so makeshift I did
stay dry though and first rainstorm in a hammock pretty much first rainstorm –
really I stayed dry lines there and then I’m gonna unpin this side real
quick and continue putting that snakeskin though snakeskin it’s like a
mesh snakeskin okay and right there guys there’s the whole snake skin and it’s or
the whole tart but it’s snakeskin so it’s a 12 foot tarp I think it’s ten
feet wide if I mean if you lay it flat it’s 10 feet wide so yeah I’m running
the Dutch we’re continuous Ridgeline so there’s a little hook on the end down
over here on the end of the tree there’s a little just a teeny tiny little hook
and on this end there is what he calls a wasp I like to take you guys should be
the wasp because it’s I think it’s pretty cool but I don’t have to tie any
knots with this setup knows of it and you pull that to get
attention and then you get under the wing I slack next time I know that I
need to sorry turn around so you guys me learn how to bring the tarp down because
in my hammock when it was raining the bottom of my hammock was sticking out of
the bottom of the tarp and there could be the potential to get water on you
that way I’m I was lucky and bidden but next time we’ll be more prepared and
safe so I’m gonna keep keep backing up it’s a process alright guys here’s a
quick look of the bag all packed up I have the camera tripod there that is my
fishing rod holder you know my rain gear and stuff right in the front mesh pocket
one spot GPS on the top water bottles on the sides I have my front pack so if you
can’t see it means a pad a transition in food photos my little front Badlands buy
no pack on I don’t have the fishing pole and the holder yet because I might throw
a few cats just on the way out of here so yeah we’re gonna get going
got everything all packed up and ready to go alright guys that’s going to conclude
fishing at wall Lake I did get two bites on the grasshoppers but was unsuccessful
to pull them in the first one I think I did hook him but it didn’t actually like
or he ate it but it didn’t hook his lip so that was me getting too excited the
first time but yeah let’s say goodbye to wall Lake and we’re gonna back on the
trail now there shouldn’t be it’s not too long about hike back out so it’s
about three o’clock now it maybe take me an hour and hour and a half to get to
the truck I think so yeah keep hiking yeah video here we are here we went to this way so yeah that was pong the next
time I think it’d be cool to keep following the trail come up here to Hope
lake you keep going all the way to Atlantic like I think that’s how you see
it there you can come all the way over here to Lake Island like like we’re like
smile Lake this woman could have gone to trim trim fairly dry like ducks
yeah so from wall like we went up here and you can take a shortcut to trial
Lake you guys think you’re close to face me you
