First let me say Wow for the tail maintenance shots. That is another one of my pet peeves. Especially with ATV trail users. They never seem to do any trail maintenance unless it requires a chainsaw. Second .. that cave shelter is awesome!

@PintoBlades its hard to get to and pretty hidden….that water crossing is iffy some times…very ledge filled are…and the only way someone else could find it..is by following my tracks in the snow.lol

@MiWilderness just a cool place to hang in winter…relatively remote …and offers alot for what it is.

@Ggreenvideos lmao.we both said the same thing..the cam was on me & went in the water but the case & relectix sleeve kept it dry…but both shins got nailed on rocks…swollen a 1/2in..didnt even feel the cold on the jewels..the shins hurt so much,lol…its a cool spot to hang..protected,secluded…offers three sleeping areas…cool place to warm up at during snowy winter hikes..that little sleeping cave area..heats up crazy with the positioning of the firepit area.maybe 30 * warmer than ambient

@dragonflyhiker i am so with you on that one…i am an explorer and adventurer at heart ,think it runs in my genes…my ancestors were island people who left the security of the continent for more prosperity on distant islands….you know…pirates,lol…
