Extreme Weather Shelter and Scoop Stove

  • To me, extreme weather can be several things. Wind in the form of socking the cold right thru you or snapping off branches and them falling on you. rain can beat down your tarp or tent and even wash the ground out from under you in extreme circumstances.This is the shelter I use in those conditions to get a good nights sleep. It got kinda dark when I tried to show the scoop stove at the end. I may have to show more of it in another video.

    Im still getting comments regarding why didn't you do this, why did you do this or that, why carry rope, why not a hammock, why not a tent. Read the title, this is for extreme weather. The idea behind this and especially the rope barrier is an attempt to stop falling branches and debris when in a wooded area. Also very handy for if mild flooding hits your campsite overnight. If you don't like my methods of doing things then just don't do what I do. EDITED 2019 = I guess Ive gotten at least 300 comments on this being a bear burrito. Whats folks don't understand or even comprehend is you are no safer from bears in a hammock or a tent. Gee, will the fabric of a hammock magically protect you?

    Some good ideas. I spent many years hitchhiking/camping with a nylon hammock and space blanket for my shelter.

    I don't know if that gel is edible, but it does have ethanol (alcohol) in it. I bet it tastes terrible.

    That looks like something me and my little brother would have built camping in my grandpa's pasture! Happy memories!

    How'd you make the stove? I really struggle to find level ground for my stove and often trip over it...I'm pretty blind. This would solve a lot of problems I have.
