did a livestream about the 30-day challenge the next day but somebody asked are we bringing food we’re not bringing any food we’re not bringing any calories we are just going to survive catching cook the whole time we’re out there that’s the whole point of this adventure shave the wookie a little haircut action from Chris because it was hot down there in Texas for a Manor like me it’s already been late fall and my package showed up with all my stuff from Maine just at the last minute it might look like a lot of stuff that we’re bringing with us but a lot of it comes from different sponsors so we’re gonna be showing it on off on different days that’s all of it not a lot of stuff haversack backpack camera bag and trapper basket I don’t want to spend so much time telling you about all the gear that it ruins the video so there’s gonna be a link in the description for every single one of the videos with a gear video related to that video so you can see that and get to know the stuff that we brought with us but let’s get out there and really start this adventure and we are off and away you got my pack I’m gonna have to make another couple couple runs to get all the way out here not sure the full distance but we’re out there we’re out there you won’t hear cars my hair planes because it plane to fly over everywhere so as you can see the light is pretty dusky we definitely did not get an early start to today I had a lot of last-minute preparations things going on to make sure when we live to leave the email world and all that stuff behind that everything was cued up and set to go so we could just enjoy ourselves out here and have some fun hi guys well we made it this is the beautiful area and there’s a stream and it’s beautiful nice little open spot right here those things hurt here we go a nice couple of trees right here I could set up my hammock tied to there to there feels almost anticlimax deck I’m gonna have to add some like dramatic music right now because it’s just yeah I don’t know it’s just I feel like I’m just going out camping not the beginning of 30 dramatic days of surviving and hunting and catching cook you know [Music] this’ll have to do for tonight I picked two trees that were a little on the close side here I didn’t mean to so am i all right like scrunched against each of these trees maybe tomorrow I’ll get it set up better I wanted a little bit higher so I can have a little build a little bushcraft desk area to keep my other stuff and shelving unit you know me I love to build stuff I never got a chance when I was up in Canada that woulda beardsman keeps you right busy the whole time when you’re out there adventuring with him you know catching catching cook every day but here we’re establishing a camp and a beach front to attack the wild from you know as it were and so I’m bid the BIA so I’ll be building this up with a little bit of a an area to protect my stuff should it rain because water and Texas tends to pile up on things and then run off and yeehaw and make another run get the rest of the camp set up hacking our way back to camp making our own trail all right he’s marking our trail the trail that we have found earlier took this way out and around and he’s trusting my guidance to allow us to go straight through the woods we got permission from the landowner as we’re doing this so all right we made it there’s your hammock there’s you and mines over there through the bushes all right we’ve got all of our stuff down here now got dog food debate the crayfish traps got my haversack we’re gonna head on down to the water Marley’s I am krysta joining me I got time off catfish stink baby stuff here got a a Power Bait version some thirty pound test got my gloves and I got my water filtration system I want to fill

bait for dog food yeah for crawdads the dog food works really really well keep the stuff you can find works really really amazing a handful should do pop it right there in the center or you can put in

lightning strike fire starter it’s actually what it’s called lightning strike fire starter want a shot and it’s up that’s a nice one oh that’s what I’m talking about that’s that’s a meal right there looking crawdad right there there’s like four of them in there that size that’ll make us a tasty meal hey where do you think you’re going the big one get my finger not exactly huge look at you you got fancy tongs yeah man these are mice prongs I love these things I think they tasted the thick of Maine lobster but tiny probably not boy there is not a lot on these guys there we go first bite mmm that’s good they’re ready already he’s Hank freshwater script yeah that’s good that’s for like freshwater Lobster quite the bounty for about three and a half hours yeah that’s not bad oh speaking of which we got sidetracks thank you Lord for this first bountiful feast of crawfish mmm-hmm amen thank you Jesus would dobo here and dip my so we didn’t bring food we did bring our spices though hmm just like when I make the fish head soup making crawdad head soup I’m breaking the bodies down a little bit ripping them apart so that they will cook better like that break it down I’m still kind of hungry so have a pot of God add soup for ya four of the two notes from the cactus when I was out exploring looking for chairs these are super juicy like Kiwis but not sour and it’s not nearly a sweet Oh rich broth I turn your bowls aside so I don’t like the handle there you go watch I’m gonna be cured from my cold tomorrow all because of this all because of crawfish soup Campbell’s let me know if I seasoned into flavor properly yes nailed it yes I should have waited a minute I was like oh it burns it burns so good like one of those like a 90 year old people who can’t like food that’s actually really good yeah has that crawfish vibe I need to winning I’m gonna need a little spoon so I can try it out oh that’s good it’s seasoned it to just the right amount the crawfish soup it’s so good it tastes like he’s like ramen noodles to me for some reason it’s like it’s so good oh yeah it tastes like shrimp shrimp flavored ramen noodles the shrimp packet ramen noodle sauce but this is like like the legit kind like good fires dying down super warm it’s probably 50 out about 12:30 at night and put it in a long night so we could have something to eat it was worth it though they feel good about that whole thing makes you feel good I’m gonna finish this up climb into bed in my hammock have a good night’s sleep get up good and early see if I can’t go for a hunt get something with the bow and
