4 Days SOLO WINTER Camp – IGLOO Build – CHAGA Harvesting – Snow Shelter – Snowfall
This video is about building a snow hut in the forest – IGLOO. There are some bushcraft skills – making a fire, harvesting chaga, preparing firewood, cooking over a fire. It turned out to be a mixed hike bushcraft – camping 🙂
On the first day, I could not finish building the roof of the shelter, as it took a lot of energy to get to the place through the snow-covered forest.
I didn’t have snowshoes or skis, and the snow was above the knee. Snow cover was not strong in places and fell through.
So I had to spend the night without her. Fortunately, there was neither snow or wind. I covered the entrance with a poncho tent and make a fire inside.
On the second day, I was finishing the igloo roof. It turned out to be not easy. I had no experience in building such a shelter as IGLOO.
I knew only one thing about him – you need to lay out the blocks in a spiral, like the shell of a snail. Perhaps the snow was too loose and therefore it was difficult. But I closed it.
And that was very helpful. By the evening of the second day, a heavy snowfall with wind began.
I cooked on fire a piece of meat, drink hot chaga tea and went to bed.
The third day was the coldest.
On this day, I managed to cut down a window of ice for my snow shelter. I also made bed in igloo, covered it with fir branches. The table inside the snow hut was also carved out of ice. I also built a vestibule at the entrance. Now it has become quite comfortable and good.
That day I had dinner already inside my snowy forest shelter – an igloo.
The fourth and final day of my winter solo hike has come.
I cut down the chaga, which I noticed on a birch tree near my camp, processed it and chopped it into pieces.
I brewed tea from fresh chaga. These pieces can be brewed more than once, so I took them with me.
Gathering up, I set off on the way back.
Thanks for watching!
