    You have some of the most enjoyable wilderness videos on the internet. The Quebec locations bring back great memories. In 1988 and again in 1990, while living in Washington DC, I took my young family on trips up to a small guest camp on the Basketong Reservoir. Only a portable short-wave radio connected us to the outside world. No telephone, no television, no newspapers. Just glorious nature around us. We fished for Pike and Walleye — excuse me, Dore’– and explored the Laurentian region. We were amazed that the temperature at mid-day could reach 95 degrees, but a weather front would blow in and at 2 am it would plummet to 30 degrees and I would have to hop out of bed to build a fire in the stove. Ha ha. My children are grown up now, but they remember those adventures in Quebec as some of the greatest trips of their childhood. My 30-year old son’s passion nowadays is making solo backpacking trips into wilderness areas, so our Canadian vacations had a big impact on him. And for us, the parents, a week in a cabin on the Basketong with the long August days was like relaxing for a month. In fact the most relaxing vacations we ever took. Thanks for the videos.

    Hi there. Long time youtube viewer, and congrats on the website! Looks excellent so far. I was looking through the Gear section and saw mention of Canadian Tire. So i have to assume you both live in Canada. I was just curious where abouts, and do you own forest land you do your bushcraft in/on? Or is it public parks, and campgrounds? Thanks!

    • JB says:

      Hi Chris, yes we are from Canada. When we do our videos we go to different places. Some are parks, some reserves, and we also have a permission on a private land. Thanks for watching our videos, we appreciate your support.

  8. Thurman says:

    Have you ever encountered any dangerous wildlife like a bear or moose?

    • JB says:

      We have seen them both (moose and bear) in some of our adventures together but Mike has encountered them also in the past without nothing bad happening.
