    does anybody realize how green his fire wood is?
    He hypothetically put the “bigger”, pieces on way to fast, if the fire has no embers or coals for larger pieces, then how will it continue to burn… especially when that shi* is all alive and green… bad video

    you’re just feeding the stereotypes about your region.

    Your daddy saw a water moccasin wooo hooo. Whay are you 8? I see a rattler every time I put compost on the pile. He eats the rats, so I don’t eat him. You shot a snake the other day. Was it deadly? Did you eat it, or use it for bass bait? Did it make you feel like a man? I have eaten water moccasin, so no thanks. It’s got a muddy after taste, and the meat is not real firm. Kinda like catfish, not at all like rattler, thats good eating.

  18. Hope you like being cold at night.

    You have never been to New York state, so I understand your ignorance. I have camped ” the deep south” and it aint no big deal. Food is easy to find because every mud puddle is full of crawfish. Where is the challenge, let’s see the heat?, nah, the bugs? nah, the snakes?nah beeting off the banjo boy so he don’t pork your ass maybe thats it.

  21. BrianRobeson | March 10, 2010 at 1:42 am |

  24. Curtis1551 | March 10, 2010 at 3:00 am |

    yeah..making a campfire is pretty simple.

    This Kid is an expert? I have been hiking, camping, and bicycling the New York, and New England woods woods for 35 years. Winter and summer, and yes before mountain bikes, and ultra light gear. In a couple weeks I will be up in Maine. What does that make me Yoda?
