breaking camp for winter at our remote off-grid wilderness property

Time to break camp. With winter on the way and temps dropping below freezing, its time to get our wall tent taken down at our remote, off grid wilderness camp in the backwoods of upper Michigan. This is a good opportunity to take a look at the camp as it comes apart and see way the tent is dismantled, the outhouse is shored up against heavy snow and the well is made ready for freezing temp.

My wishes and dreams have been realized through both of your channels. Thank you both for another year of outdoor experiences. Winter months have a whole new set of challenges. I travel with my 20 ft. travel trailer and truck and with each new year I look for an area to settle. Two more years should have it. Ive learned much from you both A sincere thanks from me to you.

Been watching your videos. Very cool ideas on how you built the out house and urine guard suggestion. What do you think about a portable toilet lid (with 2 gallon water reservoir) in place of a regular toilet seat? Removing the bottom half that normally comes with these portable toilets (the holding tank) and fastening into a top section where the toilet bowl/lid would be. This would give you water in the bowl and also a pulling flush.

Thanks for sharing a summer in the wild. From the first video Brooke put up after finding the property until this one it's been a wonderful and educational experience with you both. Hope more people are inspired to try for themselves. Between your two channels, there is so much knowledge over a wide range of subjects making they're excellent and entertaining resources for those who want to follow their dreams or just get useful "how to" tips.

Thanks for taking us along for the ride yet again. While it's sad to see the last of one of my favorite places on earth for the rest of the year it's good to know that it will be ready and waiting when you guys can get back. And yes, there is nothing worse than unpacking anything canvas that got put up wet. I made the mistake once of packing a canvas tent when "Eh, it's probably dry enough" was the best that could be said for it. The next Spring when I opened that bad boy up to air it out... Let's just say I got a new tent that year.

First time watching but I have watched Brooke's videos amazing. I used to do a lot of Seismic Exploration work in really remote area of Australia when I was younger and would be away 9/10 months of the year always living in tents, or on occasion just your swag ( bedroll), we don't have seasons as you do but the process is similar to you breaking down the tent and your campsite.l have mis subscribed and will continue to follow. Stay safe cheers from Australia 🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺

We just finished closing up our off grid cabin a couple of weeks ago. Drain all the water lines (gravity fed), shut off the power (solar power), lock the door and go home. I might walk in to the cabin over the next couple of weeks and do some bird hunting. Thanks for letting us be part of what you do.

I remember what that place looked like when Brooke was scouting the 3 pieces of land on her short list...overgrown such that there was barely a place to park on it, and scattered with garbage including that trailer. You guys brought it a long way in one season, I think. Stay well, Dave.

I am sad that summer went so fast. I am glad you had the time and the good weather to break camp before it got soaking wet. I was shocked when Dave said that the U.P. gets more snow than Alaska. I had no idea. Love your video's and the both of you.

Thanks for the story of closing up a camp site for the season. Easier to take down than to put up, because you have to remember where all the pieces fit. Now, you must take all of the living support stuff and store it where no mice or chipmunks get in and chew, make a nest, and leave other things behind. I had a tent stored in the wrong place, one year and mice chewed holes in the tent and left a mess. Had to use bleach to clean what was left behind, from their living quarters. Will find you next year, to follow your escapades. Good luck through the winter months. They will be long and dark in Alaska.

Thanks for reinforcing the need for a wall tent in lieu of a trailer. I was very disappointed in buying two [yes two] nylon three-four season tents in a week and returning them buy a wall tent. As easy to setup as the nylon "castle". Yep, spent three summers in the late 60's in a wall tent, so I wasn't without experience with them. But, thanks again for the timely advice. I don't believe we'll every get to go off-grid, but we sure miss the "WOODS".

Wonderful video !! I love your comment about priorities, ( I drive a 19 yr old vehicle). I am amazed you got the whole camp in one load. One great thing about a tent vrs permanent structure.....lower taxes. Love your breakdown table. Nice voiceover work, left original soundtrack, just lowered volume and lowered music during talking..........perfect. Now I gotta go find a couple of acres in Western PA or SE Ohio, and copy yer formula. Cheers from Akron, Ohio.

Best of luck ! Let me know if you get your land
I have the same canvas tent as well. I’ve had mine for seven seasons now and my fly is starting to fall apart and flake from the sun damage if you get it on you it’s itchy as a bastard. Going to have to order another one from the tent shop this week.

Thanks to you both for sharing your spring and summer adventures with us. Just curious but if you had a cabin on that property at some point, would it be possible to drive part way in and snowmobile the rest of the way in during the winter just to spend few days. A couple guys on TRpost do this to their spots. Thanks again.

Yeah we could for sure. And we have a couple old snowmobiles....

I'll be buying land in northern WI or the UP soon and will likely go with a wall tent until I build my cabin. Are there state or county regulations that limit how long you can camp even on your own land in a ''non-permanent structure'' (I know HOAs can be weird about that stuff, but I won't have to worry about them.) Love the videos you and Brooke post!

You mentioned the U.P’s snow fall amount being so much more than Alaska’s. I went back to Chicago for Christmas one year for 5 days. Got back home to the U.P and was not tall enough to shovel the front walk. Another time I was 8 months pregnant and sunk to my armpits. Feet were not touching the ground. Aw great memories!
