Gritty's gonna cut you.


This kind of grew out of watching Townsends (who is fantastic and Iím sure most people here watch), but Iíve enjoying videos of people camping in the winter (building camp, staying warm, cooking) and also just cooking in the woods. My son also enjoys them too. Iím just wondering if anyone has their favorites they can recommend? Like a lot are fairly descriptive title (Primal Camping) so itís often just whatever YouTube search puts out. Stuff with hunting and fishing is fine too.

Also any that has a historical component like Townsends (say one about simulating parts of the mountain man life) is a huge plus.

Oh and for those who want to suggest that I go camping, Iíd like to, just waiting to get vaccinated and for better weather, vs trying it in poor weather. Luckily my dad camps a lot, so I have a good resource to lean on.

I like Justin Outdoors for this kind of stuff. Just happen to be watching his latest video right now.

AlmazanKitchen on Youtube is just some dude silently cooking in a forest. It's oddly hypnotic and beautiful.

I thoroughly enjoy watching Steve Wallis' videos: https://youtube.com/c/thestevewallis

He does ordinary camping with basic gear, sometimes with just household items, also stealth camping in odd locations, reinforcing that you can camp everywhere, even in a highway median.

Plus he's a totally chill Canadian with a peaceful and pragmatic outlook on life, the kind of guy you'd love to share a beer and a campfire meal with.

I love Camping with Steve, but I'm always surprised by the sheer quantity of food he makes. I'm a pretty big guy and I think I'd be sick if I ate two pounds of chicken alfredo (like in his latest video)

I've been following Brian's travels for some time now on his youtube channel Adventure Van Man

https://www.youtube.com/c/AdventureVanMan

You'll see him camping all over the United States in his van (full timer) and he usually shows a tasty meal he whips up at camp. Currently he just bought a box truck and will be building it out. Should be interesting and he's just a down to earth guy. Highly recommend

Apologies if it's verboten to post anime here but I think Laid-Back Camp can fit the bill here.

It's about high school girls camping around in and around Yamanashi with Mt Fuji as the backdrop during the winter. As per the title, it's very relaxing and chill and actually quite educational about camping and cooking equipment and techniques.

Sounds like a fun thing to watch!

Fun fact; the narrator who does the educational voice overs is Ootsuka Akio, aka the Japanese voice actor for Solid Snake amongst other roles.

There's also a thread in ADTRW and the second season is currently airing.

WELCOME TO THE DUNGEON

One of my favorite things from 2018. It's super comfortable, highly entertaining (if you like chill, outdoors stuff) and educative.

Goodness no, now that wouldn't do at all!


I love this guy:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEyVtEsuk7Q

He does off-the-grid boondocking in a fiberglass camper. His videos are half maintenance/repair and half nature documentary. He has a great eye and gets some amazing shots, especially for being a self-taught one-man operation. Really relaxing too. Don't watch him for his cooking though; everything he makes looks terrible.
