    Thanks for the videos you have put out.Its none of my bussiness but does amazon help you out if someone goes to your amazon page and buyes a item?Just curious.If they dont they seriously should.Theres items I want to buy Im on a buget tho buy Im cutting out somethings in my life to make it possible for me to start buying survivle stuff and camping stuff every so offten and I may not use it much but atleast it will be there when Im ready to use it or need to use it.I live in a small apartment right now but grew up in the country camping out and doing stuff outdoors and moving to the city or town where theres more people theres less places to around to camp and do stuff but it can be done.Im wanting to not only make a camping gear pack but also a urban pack.

    Again thanks for the videos with all the tips your putting out.Iv watched a few and enjoy them.Have fun and be safe.

    Great video, very informative, clear instructions and good video skills. A few Questions, though and please understand, I am NOT being critical, I am asking to learn.
    1) "C" wall (behind/under the tarp) Any reason not to pile leaves behind the wall and cover with the tarp? (Trap the leaves between the wall and tarp) This would help close off the gaps between the logs of the wall and add insulation that might marginally increase the effectiveness of the set up.
    2) Any reason (other than the extra work involved) not to build a second layer of wall on the outside of wall A and B? Since your now determined that your going to be the a few days or more, I think it would help block the wind even better. You already have the vertical stick in place on the outside of the existing wall, all you need is another stick for the outside of the new wall. Possibly you could even smash some leaves in between the wall layers as you build it to make an almost solid wall.
    3) How about a small wall "D" at the foot end of the shelter? When you have a fresh pile of firewood you have a decent wall there but by morning your wall is gone and I have to believe it lets a lot of your heat out. Again, you already have 1 set of vertical sticks there to contain the firewood, not much more effort to throw a couple more vertical sticks in the ground and drop in some more small logs for the wall.
    4) Very cool idea on the ladder backpack to haul more wood but you didn't show the super cool way you made the shoulder straps for it and how/where you attached them to make it somewhat comfortable. That ladder backpack deal is worth a short video all of it's own. It could come in very handy for all sorts of things in all sorts of situations.
    5) Probably the only thing I really see as "Wrong" with this shelter is the smoke from the fire. If your hoping to be found/rescued then it is actually a bonus. On the other hand, If your trying to be as discrete/un-noticed as possible then that is a lot of smoke. The walls pretty much contain most of the light (especially if you double wall it) but the inside of the shelter tarp is silver to reflect heat back onto you, but on the other hand it certainly exacerbates the light issue. You could loose a bit of heat reflection efficiency by using a non-reflective inside of the shelter I suppose. How much difference would that 1 change make? Is there anyway to build such a large warming fire and drastically reduce the smoke signature?

    Thank you again for such a great video! I would love to hear your thoughts on my questions/suggestions…

    Damn I’ve only watched two of your videos and I’ve learned way more from you than these bushcraft guys that don’t speak just set up gear build some shit with all their fancy tools eat a big steak then hunker down for the night. Great videos keep them coming you have a new sub.

    Easier than that string is to have a 12 foot piece of rope and you put the rope on the ground in a line. You lay the logs on the rope perpendicular and then run one end through a loop you make on the other end. Pull that tight and lift it up like santa and his bag o schit.

    I would absolutely love to see one of your shelter videos include more of a roof. I've learned so much from you. You explain and show the details which is a great visual. Thanks.

    Wanted to add a couple cautions here for safety's sake.

    * If you break seasoned wood in the Y, make sure the breakoff side is clear of ppl & pets. Those shards fly hard!

    * Any canned goods with tomato sauce are lined inside with plastic now, so save yourselves from ruined food in an emergency, trying to heat them in the can .

    You've got the best informative vids on YT, Cpl Thanks for sharing!

    Nice vids! I have a question. When you break camp, is it customary to leave the structures that you put up as is or break it apart?
    I assume in the military or tactical environments you wouldn’t leave any traces but normal bushcraft or camping trips what is the correct protocol? Thanks!

    Just a question – what are you doing for water? I dont see you drinking water. Do you have a water source nearby, and what filtering system do you use?

    A can of spaghettios is that the best you could do? You had the perfect fire for cooking. A nice steak , potatoes , onions, garlic, toasted bread, bacon and eggs. A nice beer You could have eaten better than a king. but canned spaghettios,, you call that living?

    A blaze orange flag of sorts would be nice to alert rescuers of your position from a distance, since you have effectivly hidden yourself.

    Like your vids. but you're cheating with the pop tops lol. Just Kidding. I like the standard P 38 can opener. Having the walls is brilliant, for heat and security. We have a lot of black bears in our neck of the woods

    Would it be advantageous to stack rocks between the wind-break / heat-deflector and fire-pit to help radiate warmth or use for other purposes? I don't mean stones. I mean rocks the size of bricks & footballs… Worthwhile idea or waste of time, energy & calories to go to the trouble?

    I have just put the whole can in the fire, just crack the tab and place in the fire, once it starts to boil through the hole, use a stick through the tab to pull it out and let it sit. Enjoy. No dirty dishes except your utensil.
