Sleeping in a SUPER shelter in the forest

Sleeping in a SUPER shelter in the forest

Hey folks, how are you doing? As you can see, today, I’m on my way to the backup camp again, aaand I have my small camping rucksack with me and here at the side I have my canteen. This is a original canteen by the US Army pretty cool. You see this. This is a small creek… That I have played in, when I was a kid and as you can see here at the other side this here Was a shelter that I built like seven years ago And yeah, the frame is still there, so that’s pretty awesome Okay, now. I have to cross the creek. I just want to make sure that I don’t fall down into the cold water because as you can see there’s still a little bit of snow around And this… 😮 *chuckles* And this year actually was one of the coldest beginnings of spring and yeah Maybe I should build a shelter here one day. It’s pretty cool this location So I’m walking like Half an hour now And my backpack is pretty heavy And the Sun has gone down already Or, maybe it’s about to go down so… I don’t have a lot of time left What I want to do now is I want to arrive at my camp Get a warm fire going and get something to eat because I’m hungry Pretty awesome water hole. A couple of years ago, I forgot my water, and I drank water from such a puddle like this one here. *agh* But I do not recommend that because you can get sick from this water And I didn’t get sick so I was lucky Look at this *oagh* This here is a roe deer feeder Whoa, I’m here Bug out camp, teepee. And today, I’m going to sleep at the bug out camp. I love my bug out camp! So let’s take a look here, how’re we doing? Howzits going bug out camp? Yeah! It’s looking pretty cool 🙂 Everything is fine Now I’m just gonna leave my stuff here And then I need a quick snack Okay woohoo! I’m glad that I got here. While it’s still light. Alright, so now. I’m very hungry and today I want to show you this here This is a subscription box that you can get by primal urge food and actually this is containing meat sticks in various forms. In the box you will get… a description of what’s in this ‘pup’ and you get a ton of different information about the meat sticks that are in here and usually the box contains buffalo, wild salmon, chicken, alligator, wild boar jerky, Ostrich, beef, pork, elk, lamb, duck and rabbit and that can switch out like every month So that you’re not always eating the same meat and the package come comes with ten selected meat sticks… Okay, that’s it woo! Let’s try this one ‘Lucky Jerky’ beef and apple. *apple ;3* *mhmm* Wow that’s really that’s a really Good combination, I haven’t thought that apple and beef would be such a great combination That’s really good Wow *mmm!* Kewl – this stick here is beef that has been fed with flax feed. *mm* *mm waow* N-wow this one it’s very good! *m-wuah* *mmm* Super cool. wow That tastes really good! And I guess they are holding for quite a long time, so this is really… Oh this one is like holding for nine more months. This one here, so that’s cool because You don’t have to eat them right away. You can put them into your um Car you can put them into your camping back pack into your bug out bag and Then you know that you have some protein to go protein to go pretty cool idea Can you hear the crows? *kwaw kwaw qua ;3* *woaaaaaa* 9/10 8/10 10/10 Yeah, actually I’m very pleased that Winter is over And now it’s like half past 5:00 and it’s still light, and I’m so grateful for that because I don’t like it when the night is like 15 hours long So I’m definitely a summers person – but I like winter you know? You know what I mean, so… Yeah, I’ll get when there’s a little bit more daylight left All right, I will quickly baton… ugh… smaller sticks. This wood here is pretty dry so. I need some kindling for this fire for the first flames And for making this kindling, the baton-ing technique is pretty efficient… Doesn’t take so much energy than the axe. OK I have this candle here, which I have at the camp and today. I want to start fire with the candle. Okay, I’m carving some shavings. I need some fine tinder. Yeah, unfortunately, I don’t have any other tinder here today, but you know… You can help yourself by just making shavings. And now I’m taking the candle and I’m going to drop the wax onto the shavings. Ops ;3 heh, I just poured some wax on my knife. Yeah, that’s burning! Just like that. Whoo, fires burning pretty good… and uh, *woops* ;3 heh just almost ran into the tree, so I just wanted to say that the moon is here today, so there’s not a lot of moon, but Tonight is not going to be pitch-black Pretty awesome right? Look at this 🙂 Whoo-hoo a lot of people probably want to understand me why I am camping in the forest in wintertime But actually this is great you know. This is something else so If you – if you haven’t camped outside in winter time, then I can highly recommend it All right, so I have some of these heart of peach logs… They are going to burn much longer and with more heat So I’m just gonna throw them on and they will make some awesome coals Okay new competition! Don’t hit the candle competition! Yeah! You know without a fire in the wilderness… it’s not good. The fire doesn’t only give you warmth, but also it gives you comfort, and that’s what you need in a dark forest. I’m getting hangry. I really want some food now, so I’m just going to eat my meat sticks. You know a lot of people ask me. How come that my shelter doesn’t get damaged by other people? Vandalism, and… uhh yeah, when I was building the shelter a lot of people wrote like in the comment section like yeah “In two weeks, this is going to be torn down by other humans.” But that wasn’t the case actually Nothing happened to the shelter except once when a tree fell onto the roof But yeah, that’s a different story and The reason why nothing happens to the shelter or why no like idiots come here to rip down my shelter is because… I have grown up in the village like where da bug out camp location is and people know me And yeah, I believe that they Like me so much that they leave my camp alone, so I’m pretty glad that no one has destroyed my camp and yeah And a lot of people from the village have visited this place. I don’t have a problem with that because mostly it’s just kids and One time I found a beer invoice in the shelter so apparently some Yeah, some people have gotten drunk in my shelter, but that’s all okay by me you know the only thing that I don’t like is when someone from who doesn’t know me from the village like some kind of Stalker wants to find me and that’s a different story because actually one time that happened to me like one time I came to the shelter and there was a yellow cordage hanging down from it and Then I was working you know like I was filming. I built the second thing too and Then all of a sudden a man came to the shelter He was dressed all black and he was jogging so first I thought oh, maybe that’s a jogger who has lost his way but no, so he came to the shelter and then he saw me and then he turned around and then he ran away, so I Thought that was pretty strange *ahem* I’m sorry Pretty strange right the yellow cordage, and he was huge. It was a big guy you know So I was a little bit you know worried and the next day, he wrote me an email, and he said yeah he knows me from my YouTube side and He wanted to find me and prove to me that I can be found if someone wants to Wow and that was really Terrible for me I was in a shock for three days that someone really Came into my private field like this so then I wrote back and I told him that I already reported him to the police and That he shouldn’t come again, otherwise I will report him again, and then I told him like Do you think it’s okay? To come here to my place without my permission? How would you feel if I come to your flat like I mean? This is my living room, right? How would you feel if I break into your house and place a yellow string in your living room? And then – I wrote you an email and said “Oh I just wanted to prove that you can be found.” Yeah… idiot, so I don’t want any creeps to come here tonight… bug out camp and try to search for me or something Gladly most of my fans are normal, and they wouldn’t do some creepy shit like that So I’m really glad that since then I have been left alone Alright, so as you can see the fire has burned down. It’s pretty hot here I can’t leave my hand here for longer than like three seconds. And first of all I want to sterilize that grill because it has been lying in the forest and I don’t want to have any pathogens on it and in about like five minutes I’m going to throw all my chickens Mm-hmm nice chicken breasts All right, I think we are done with the meat. It looks like… it’s done. Yeah, this is done, and there’s still a lot of moisture in it so it’s going to be verrry good. But first before I’m eating this I need some… ketchup. And some mustard and my all-time favorite which is mayonnaise. mmmmm Yeah!! And on top of that I’m going to have some gluten-free bread. Mm-hmm It’s really good I love chicken. It’s getting really cold now. I really need to get that fire going. mmm! That tastes really good. I love chicken. It’s one of my favorite meats. Besides beef of course, heh, you can’t beat the steak. That’s the best… best tasting meat. I’m almost done with the chicken, but I got really cold, so I stacked up the fire again. And now just to try to warm up. Without the fire it would be very cold. *condenses breath* Alrighty so now I’m going to sanitize my spoon fork. I’m getting tired now, and… I think today I’m going to sleep with the sheeting down. So that my… sleeping bag doesn’t get a hole from the sparks flying around And I think I will be very cozy tonight. Let’s see how much the temperature is right now. Okay, it’s like 15 degrees here at the tree. 15 degrees Celsius And I know for a fact that tonight it has around zero degrees like away from the fire out there in the forest so It’s pretty cold, but I have my sleeping bag so no problem. Winter camping actually makes a lot of fun. I like it. *footsteps in the snow ;3* *more footsteps in the snow XD* Okay, I got my water. Can you hear this? *sounds* It’s just some birds… and an airplane – wow I can see so many stars! Okay, so we have good weather no rain. *more sounds* I’ve heard something. Okay, that’s just snow coming off of the trees. So I’m about to go to the bed, but first. I want to stake out the fire And I want to have a really nice cozy fire going on. And this hardwood is going to burn for at least an – an hour or so All right, now I want to roll down the sheeting and after that I get out my sleeping bag. Of course it’s important that you don’t burn down the sheeting so I have this tree stump here, which is going to… take away the sheeting from the fire. Okay… So I got some water from the canteen… and now I just gonna change into my long johns… and my long underwear and Yeah This will be a very cozy night. I’m 100% sure about that oh, that’s good to get out of the shoes whoo Okay cool. In da sleeping bag the fire is burning very good outside, and yeah… I still have enough of holes at the side, so I’m definitely not poisoning myself with carbon monoxide So everything good. I think this is going to be one of the best nights ever in the shelter really… All right, so I’m not tired yet, so probably I’m gonna watch some YouTube videos on my mobile phone… and then here… I hope that I can sleep in early because I want to get up early so that’s the plan… but that’s the plan every day, but I never – cannot get it right so yeah… I like to sleep in. Anyway We see each other tomorrow good night. Okay, it’s time to get out of the sleeping bag. My water bottle… power bank… second camera… that’s it. *oo-hoo* Ha! The trousers so cold. *wooOOOhoo* Okay, I have to get up. I’m very cold. *ah Ha ha* In the morning it’s always a competition how fast I can get on my clothes. *oagh* *exhales* Well I have to say this was the best night ever… Somehow the sheeting is not only you know protecting you from the wind, but also it protects you from the smoke and Somehow, I felt like more protected, so it was good for psychology and that’s why I slept much better than the other times here, so The teepee… is in good condition also Wow it’s a really beautiful morning… the Sun has just gone up. Okay, I’m packing up my things now. My sleeping bag is the WMNS Titan 750… down sleeping bag… and with this one I have slept all of the *sheeting unfurls* Ooops ah ha ha! *wood falling down noise* What I wanted to say was that with this sleeping bag it was warm enough that I could sleep all winter time I didn’t need another warmer sleeping bag yet this winter. Okay, I have a pretty good pile of ashes actually so now I want to… collect some of it because I might need it for another project… so, wha – what can you do with ashes basically you can make some lye… and you can… uh, turn some… uh raw hide… You can make some soap with it… a lot of good stuff that you can make with ashes… and here make sure that you don’t get the black stuff, which is the coal you just want to get the white stuff, which is the pure ash. As you can see I have connected half a cup of very good ashes… and yeah, just make sure that I throw out the charcoal… And I’m going to leave this here… for another project which I might do in the future, so just gonna put it… underneath here… and maybe next time I make a fire I’m going to collect some ashes as well Yeah! That’s it. whooo! Let’s go! Look at the Sun. It’s really beautiful! Very beautiful day. Okay, I have to take back my axe… I just don’t want to get it sold, but I guess it doesn’t matter here. so… Cool! Now let’s go. ooo My god I can’t wait for spring. Yeah, so… this was my overnighter… for today. I want to thank you for watching and yeah Follow me on Facebook If you want to because on Facebook I will post all of my videos.

  1. FAQ: my camp is on private property. This video was sponsored by Primal Urge Foods! Please visit: – Because of sponsors like them I can make Youtube videos full-time! Thanks.

  2. From the U.S. : I realize you are resourceful and capable. There is concern for your safety. Not just from a human, but from other beasts in the land. Is it permitted in Austria for private citizens to own guns?

  3. Looks amazing; wonder if that type of design would work in the actual snow fall and higher winds, or would the smoke eddy and choke you?
    Good point about protection,- even as a male, would bring a weapon.A dog also is not a bad idea,- forewarned being forearmed.Unfortunately, many people with less than stellar drives and motivation's out there.Stay warm,- and cool, -Lily.

  4. I built a small hut thing in the forest near where I live when I was a kid.
    Kids in the area were rebuilding it and fixing it up for years. I'm pretty proud of that lol

  5. It is beautiful, I use to camp a lot in the woods, but now am kind of disabled, so nothing stressful…

  6. I want strong mental woman like you. I mean so recent many young women want comfortable, rich urban things. 😒

  7. You should put some (A LOT) of wooden zombie spikes and boobie traps around your survival shelter THE WALKING DEAD style to keep away the creeps!!!

  10. Hi from Nottingham UK. Your very brave to sleep out on ur own. It's not safe to do that here. Be good to have a dog with u to keep u company. Take care

  11. yup, an Old English Mastiff is definitely a good thing!! be the best thing in the world for you… but another mouth to feed. my guy is 180 lbs. talk about batteries and chargers

  12. do you have a problem with rats chewing your stuff when you're not there? I don't know if rats can handle the snow, but where I'm from they are a real pain, any good shelter they move into

  13. Miss Lily, a tip; have you ever used a heat deflector behind your fire? Very simple and quick to set up. You’ll be pleasantly surprised how much warmer you’ll be. Check out “The North Woodsman” channel. He’s lots of great tips for COLD winter survival. Uncle Fudd from PA

  14. I want to come live with you in your bug out camp , you live the way I love to live you are the perfect woman Lilly .

  15. For personal safety you need camping friends to take along on your outings—like Smith & Wesson🔫❤️

  16. If you got yourself a simple child rack, you can rake up piles of leaves, leave make really good starting material???? and while you are raking leaves you would also be collecting all sorts of small sticks and twigs from the ground!!!! And it would also help to clean your campsite!!!! And if you got really excited you can rake everything for 20 to 25 ft and every direction.

  17. A small can of beans that have been really yummy too!!!! Here in the U S those are called pork and beans, or beannie wennie,

  18. Something you might think about???? Getting some little solar lights. you could stick them in the ground all around your camp. I have a friend that has 4 solar lights going up the stairs to his house, and like six of them on the railing around the deck!!! That's just a thought. Then when you got ready to leave just pull them out of the ground put then in a plastic bag And put where u we're throwing the firewood. Then they would be there when you needed them again.

  19. Love ur video we need more American women in the USA with ur passion of the woods thanks again its inspirational

  20. Girl, that t-pee would work great keeping extra wood dry when not using it…that looks like grouse breast i et hunting ,the flavor makes mouth water

  21. Uallll maravilhoso.
    Gostaria por demais acampar assim..

  22. re the stalker. I hope you made it clear if you're found, you have a BIG knife, an axe & at least one decent bow. alone? maybe. defenceless? hardly. add that longpig holds no fear nor taboo for you. once it's off the bone, it's just meat. some may consider a fight worth the effort. few will tangle with you if they think cannibalism may be at stake. in your case, it may be a lie. they don't know that. do they REALLY want to roll they dice?

  23. looks like an old fashioned  colonial trappers camp . only they didn't have aluminum. I know a lot of people that winter camp and hunt.

  24. Respecting other person's personal property means perhaps a shelter can save a life someday. Ask permission prior or leave areas used neater than found, a note to thank and wood split for the next person. It is so rude to abuse a privilege when needing it! Nice safe shelter! Enjoyed the video!

  25. I love that shelter! It’s awesome! I would like to build one like that. Thank you for making the video, and thank you to Primal Urge foods

  26. That camp fire can be much more efficient. First take 3 logs to form a U with the open end facing the shelter with the outer ends spread wider than the closed side of the U. The bottom of the U should be about 3'. Place a 4th log on top of the bottom of the U and resting on all 3 logs. Build your fire in the bottom of the U about 1' away from the bottom.
    This arrangement reflects the heat toward the shelter.

  27. Hi Lilly add about 2:00 you mentioned all you want to do is get to camp and build a fire. I really love all of your videos and I love you way too much! I want to pass along a wonderful story I read in school in Illinois. It is by famous American writer Jack London. It is a short story with the title: TO BUILD A FIRE. this is a fantastic story about a man traveling alone in the Yukon where it was very cold and all about the processes that went through his mind as he journeyed to his objective which was a lodge where food and fire and lodging were available. I think you would like it and you should be able to find it easily. Maybe even translated into your own language. Thank you again for your marvelous videos they are so superior to anything I have found because of the heart which you put into them.

  28. Holy cow, Lilly, that stalker story made the hair stand up on the back of my neck! Jeepers, people are nuts these days. Be careful! I sure hope you keep a handgun on your person for self defense.

  29. Well…I was enjoying your videos until I watched this one. I feel for you. You sat by the fire and talked about how you live in fear of a stalker who came near your camp. I stopped the video, and plan to watch no more. I get it about being a girl all alone in the woods. I work with girls in the big city, and they tell me of their fears of walking to their car at night. I now look at your videos in a whole different light. It seems like each video you are living in fear, and that is not right. I would be scared myself.

  30. Are you a INFJ personally type???? I live in Ireland and it’s safe. But I think you need a good guard 🐕 it’s a dangerous world. And a friend with you too. Be safe please all the best ✋

  31. i really like all of your videos…thanks for sharing…we have a group of people called ourselves East India Campers…. we do camping in the wilderness.. we love camping… we do get out from the noisy city and having a connect with nature…please do upload more…God bless you

  32. I haven't tried winter camping. Im 52. When i was in my 20's i use to hunt arrowheads i would park my car on side of the road and just walk and explore for the day. Seminole County. Oklahoma. Lots of forest that me and not many other people see. The guy that tied the cord. Augh! 4 real? Thats creepy. Anyhow i want to adventure winter camping. I like your video! Keep safe!

  33. Hey Lilly you can make fire and get more sftp of you use, This a Fireprotected Tentshield. Use this instad of the Plastic you use.

  34. thats actually a canteen cup, If you get the canteen and the pouch to go with it you can water in the canteen put that in the cup and they both fit in the pouch as a nice little unit.

  35. when you were talking about that stalker guy, you said something along the lines of "How would you feel If I broke into your living room" And I was just wondering if you own the land or something, because if not, other than being a creep that guy didn't really do anything wrong and he did leave as soon as he saw you were there.

  36. 1.3k didn’t like this video? Why? This woman is doing what she loves, is good at it and shares it. What makes 1.3k of people hit the dislike? Idiots!

  37. Hi 😃 I really like your videos on Youtube 👍I myself are a man who appreciates forest and nature. I follow you on Youtube, and I hope you want to see my videos on Youtube 😊 My name is Nature man on Youtube. Thanks so much. /Daniel
