In Part 6, on day 4, I pack up the hot tent camp and haul out. I show how I cache valuable natural resources like the stove skids, pipe bipod poles, firewood poles, split kindling, and spruce boughs which I can re-use this winter if I return. (Note that where I am in northern Ontario, on public land, tucked into the bush, not near any campsites or trails, it's legal to use spruce boughs to float on top of the deep packed snow. Without the boughs support, the deep snow tent floor will post hole). I regret skipping the filming of actual gear break down and packing, but its hard work solo, and my fingers were freezing!
In the closing scene of me hauling the toboggan, at about -15C, I mention that the new sharp-crystal snow created incredibly bad friction, and the toboggan was not sliding well at all. It was a death march hauling out, requiring me to stop sometimes every dozen or so paces, to rest, and prevent a heart attack. The sled friction was that bad. Sometimes that happens with new snow and colder temperatures. The haul in was completely different, sled friction was much lower, and the toboggan slid very well. One has to be prepared for big variations in sled friction depending on the snow and temperature conditions.
Thanks for watching!
