[Video] Winter Hike With Friends And A Dog

Hot Chocolate Hike

Canadian Joe Robinet of Bushcraft enjoys a winter hike with a couple of new friends. Joe’s dog is actually the star of the video. Nothing very special about this short video except encouraging me and my other cold northern friends to get outside more and enjoy our winter woods.

Must admit it’s been awhile since I made hot chocolate for the family while hiking during the colder months. It’ll definitely happen this weekend with the alcohol stove.

What Kind Of Boots Are Those?

In case you’re wondering, Joe is wearing Baffin Endurance boots. Nice.

Watch the quick video for a relaxing moment in the Canadian cold.

They earned money and survived.

ATV In Costa Rica

Snake Bite

Watch the video for some great views … and a story about a surfer dying from a Fer-De-Lance pit viper bite. Lesson: Don’t try to drive yourself to the hospital after being bitten by the most venomous snake in Central America.
