You can rig it up for however you want So I've got the side clips this one Doesn't come undone it just loosens or Tightens so that was in there solid you Could see it then I got my silky uh big Boy And on underneath we've got a solid Connection with the wool blanket and Because we're using the tarp so I'm Going to sleep in front of the fire I do Have a sleeping bag to put under a small One but I always like to use the wool Blanket just to protect my stuff and This is gonna I'm gonna share this with Wolfie It's going down to zero Celsius today So this is all Pretty slick on backpacks nowadays never Used to have these things I always used To have to put on my own It's funny looking through the camera Here it looks all green but The colors are popping right now it's Like probably Peak colors on the outside Of the forest but it always takes a Little while for the Younger leaves the younger trees to Change the colors I'm gonna go between This tree here And this one gives me a big space Big open spot in front for a fire as Well but there's a lot of debris in the Way

We got to get rid of Rotten wood Rotten old Aspen A good boy huh Talk about a non-reactive dog let's hope Let's Help Watch out Good boy there you go there you go All right I'm gonna get my shelter out Now I'm gonna use my old school etawah Bushcraft USA tarp Foreign So a 10 by 10 tarp and a five by seven Tarp which We're gonna set up a really cool Um tarp shelter with the ultimate tarp Shelter I would wager to set I spent Five nights in a shelter just like this Exactly with this same tarps uh in the Winter time with Ken and Kyle that got Real cold So in here I've got paracord and other Cord this is not paracore this is like Smaller Tighter stuff this is perfect here we've Got our 5×7 And our Old Beast Old Faithful 10 by 10. I'm just tying Top Line hitches Hotline For snitches Okay I'm Gonna Leave It relatively loose Right now And we're gonna go with our 10 by 10

First so Here's a corner One tab up One tab up Right there and then you're gonna go up One more set I believe So you have two tabs And there are two tabs the second tab Up Is on your paracord right there's where We're at now I've just broken a stick to Use as a toggle nothing fancy Foreign For now I take a loop And put it through the tab And then stick the toggle in there Foreign This is good because you can move the Tarp around with the toggles so again We're going to go on a diagonal and Maybe I did it wrong I might have been On the front the first maybe it should Have been on the first tab but no big Deal we can fix that if we need to I'm Gonna go to the end And I believe two tabs again Yeah right about here they want to shake It out So I'm gonna go ahead and make some Legit steaks here this is how I really Like to do the pegs sometimes it doesn't Work out the the way it grows and stuff But you can see and put it through the

Hole Holds it down here So again I think it's this Peg here we're gonna try this one first Some nice soil here it should stick Right in Maybe not Okay As it's going to be What are you working at no no don't bark It's just a tree squeaking bud Hey You're gonna be okay All right we're getting there Not very warm actually after you stop Walking Oh All right Here's where it really adds to it So I'm going to attach The tabs to the same toggles That the other tarp is attached to Mm-hmm I'm going to attempt to do that At least So I want to need a Piece of paracord you go from there to There Let's get that in there Tie this on Couple overhands And then this here We can just cinch back up like maybe or

Like a Tut line hitch type thing that's Going to stay on there Okay okay It might be a little lopsided you know Don't uh Don't blame me I'm a little upside of Myself so that's going to get pegged Down to the ground as well and then We're gonna have like a wall you know With a whole wall in here Right it's all set up you can see got Basically a wall there the entrance here And a little bit of an entrance there so Lots of ventilation And then if you wanted extra protection And pull this down and Peg it out in Front Like this and what that's going to do For you really like today it's it's Overkill you know especially if I want To have a fire in front which I can Still do but I'll move this away and I'll show you all that too but For the winter time if you didn't want To carry like some big heavy tent this Would suffice you know I mean you're Very protected in here Just like that It's all open you have a fire no problem I'm gonna go around try to find another Rock smooth like this it's back down the Other side I gotta get firewood and I'm really Hungry
