Caught in a Storm – 4 days solo bushcraft, camping in heavy rain, portable wood stove, canvas tent

Got caught in a crazy storm on the last days of my winter bushcraft camping trip. Storm Ciara had passed the previous week or so. I was eager to get out but little did I know storm Dennis was on its way. When the storm arrived, I was already deep in the forest off trail for 2 days with lots of rain but no crazy winds. I opted to set my second camp on a raised part of a lake. No trees windward from me, just water, but also no shelter from the 70 mph winds (110 km/h). With the conical shape of my shelter and past experiences with my bigger tipi tent in previous storms, I felt optimistic that it would be ok in the wind.
First night of the storm I skipped dinner and held tight waiting for the worst part of it to pass. I had my stove with me and decided to put it to the test anyway, hoping the thing wouldn’t fill the shelter with smoke or break. Impressively it did not, it kept me warm and cozy inside while the madness was picking up strength outside, the worst of it during the night. Crazy experience, but I must say I enjoyed it tremendously. The next day was spent gathering wood and cooking some nice food even though the storm was still lingering. New videos every week, thanks for watching! – Ric

OBS: If you want to practice unnecessary high impact bushcraft activities like shelter / fort building, cut living or dead standing trees, damage the nature in any form in Scandinavia, you need to have Landowner permission or own the land. Always observe local fire prohibitions and forecasts to prevent forest fires. Finally, don’t be a twat, always be respectful of the forest and it’s inhabitants, leave no trace.
