Hi guys, I’m Lilly and today I’m going to show you my bug out camp.
When it comes to bug out camps, camouflage is essential so that’s why I have put a lot of debris and leaves on the back side of my top.
Let’s take a walk around my shelter here. As you can see I have built some walls around the shelter.
The reason why I set up these walls here is basically because I wanted to keep out the wind which comes from this direction and without the walls, the wind would blow the smoke into my face.
The next thing that it comes to very solid walls is that you feel a little bit more protected on the inside of your shelter.
The entrance of the shelter is on the South side, and I’ve made a door for the entrance so I can keep my dog in if I want to and the critters out.
If you come into my shelter, the first thing you see is this nice fireplace here. You can also call this my entertainment center because sometimes I watch the fire for hours.
Moving on, to the left here I have built my hunting seat. Which I use when I want to hunt. I built a feeder over there as well at the other side of the creek. This seat is also great for chilling out.
Now let’s come to the main part of the shelter which is the lean-to construction. I’ve used very thick posts to get a very stable construction. So first I used a very thick and heavy duty tarp.
Then I got this small mylar blanket which is reflecting the heat of the fire.
Now I want to show you my bed. It’s a raised bed that I built myself and it’s very solid. I like to call it a couch. And back in here I have another pile of wood. And here I’ve got a thermometer, and right now we have 26 degrees Celsius. At the other side, there’s a dream catcher I made for my late Grandma and my shelf where I keep my stuff and some food.
If the weather is getting worse or if there’s a storm coming up or too much rain, I just roll down this sheet of plastic here. So inside this shelter with the sheet down you’re not only protected against the elements, but it also acts like a super shelter because the heat of the fire will radiate through the plastic sheet and then it will be trapped inside of the shelter.
So this was a tour of my bug out camp / super shelter I want to thank you for watching and I really need to get going! Come on! I can’t believe that I have to walk out of here..
