    Another fun but busy couple of days at The Tent. The yard needed mowing, I found some free firewood. I went out fishing a couple of times. Another Hidden and Forgotten campsite was found. Transplanting some of the smaller trees. As always, good Tent cooking. It may have been busy, but to me that is relaxing.

      Hey Joe, love your videos, been watching for over seven years. When are you going to build a cabin? dying to see what you do.

      1. JoeandZachSurvival

        Eventually but no need to yet, The Tent is holding up very well.

    2. Jamie Mac Neil

      There is so much non sense on US-new and Sometimes you can get lost. But it’s always nice knowing that when u just wanna watch something that inspires you to be better you can always watch Joe and Zack Survival. Please keep them coming buddy. My goal is to one day have a set up like yours. So it’s very inspiring. Thanks again.

    3. Maria S

      Super lucky to have a beautiful place to go. Thank you for sharing this little piece of heaven.

    4. Ford Waters

      These videos are relaxing to watch cause we all want to be Joe. Respect my friend.

    5. iTzZiggy91

      Just realized that looks like a Oklahoma Joe grill/smoker. How do you like it for longer cooks?

    6. Christopher Evering

      Wow your Fathers deck turned out awesome.

    7. Kenneth White

      Mosquitos’s Deet does work but sprayed in the car one time and pitted/pot holed the dash used it another time on a fishing trip and melted the gel coat on the rods doesn’t seem it would be friendly to humans ? Citronella plants /candles, bat homes ? When it’s time I’ll ask why Mosquitoes!

    8. david lindsey

      lol mr. joe you’re so funny. You said chuck is the best steak. It’s all good though. 👌🏽

    9. Chris Reed

      Do you eat spaghetti and meatballs?

    10. Carlos G

      Too funny Joe ...that was me last weekend loading wood rounds myself "Oh Crap" lol

    11. Tailss1

      Do you harvest and prepare the dehydrated stinging nettles yourself?

      1. Tailss1

        @JoeandZachSurvival Thanks Joe. :D Good to see your dad up and about again.

      2. JoeandZachSurvival

        Yes I do. It is super simple and easy. I have a video on it on this channel. Do a video search from the main page. Thank you.

    12. Brock M

      Is the tent still running off a geni or do you have power now?

    13. Michael Coghlan

      Great video Joe, thanks for sharing

    14. Neuclear

      I never see you eat any of your canned vegetables ? Dont i see that on your shelves?

    15. G-Man 5959

      I just hate it when you leave the Tent....what a place Joe....

    16. Tim C

      Is the Max tree still growing?

    17. Nick Zimbauer

      Just a reminder... wind can be your friend while fishing if you have an anchor. Wind creates current in lakes which moves the bait. Don't be afraid to fish windy banks and points if you can hold.

    18. Carol Smith

      Where did you find a mower that will run without holding it?

    19. Silent Gloves

      Hey Joe, just a thought: We've seen some images and videos of the start of the tent, but I'm not sure you've ever retold the history of the property; how it came to your and your folks' possession, etc. I for one would be curious to hear about it!

    20. Scotty Mack

      Did you sell the Louisiana house?

    21. Atholl McNicoll

      What I do not understand is , every time you set up , you switch on the TV set to have noise in the background but never seem to watch it, so what is thew point of wasting power Joe?

    22. donnieboyjohnson

      i think we have the same laws pertaining to the Lady Slipper in Nova Scotia

    23. mailman nb

      Do you cook the cattails? Or eat them as is?

    24. imari2305

      I just love watching you "relax" Joe. The views as always from the lake are simply beautiful. Your father's back deck is coming along nicely. He is truly a master builder.

    25. TypeR632

      What's the general area the tent is located in?

    26. Richard Anderson

      I missed some of the earlier videos about how you power everything. Do you run a generator or on the grid?

    27. Jonathan Mann

      I can't help but tell you just how fortunate Zach is to have a father and grandfather like you and your dad. It makes me jealous just watching you guys.

    28. John Grytbakk

      Beautiful up there.

    29. David Ferguson

      Thanks again Joe!!

    30. Tony Eden

      Man I would give anything for a week on that little old island ........great video again Joe 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

    31. Gary Gaulden

      I enjoyed watching the video. YOU are living my dream! I am going to research your other videos as this was the only one I have watched yet. What types of things were your writing in your journal?

    32. Carmine Iadeluca

      Great video. What a haul with the birch & rocks 💪 Best Wishes & God bless you & yours

    38. Black Dog

      Your finger looks like it has been wounded for a month.......have you ever changed the band-aid?

    39. Renee Scarborough

      Jackpot on the firewood

    40. Lisa F

      This is the best video you have put out/ shared with us in a long time. Love how you have such an awareness for nature!! And the scenery is so beautiful and relaxing to see. Reminds of home in Colorado ****** Beautiful ***** thanks for sharing.

    41. rlmccullough

      I could see myself by a fire listening to "Prairie Home Companion", on a Saturday Evening after Alabama Football. Down at our river spot on the Black Warrior. That's a plan!

    42. chuck timm

    43. srq lisa

    44. Pete Schenskie

      Where does the water go from your shower drain? Just grey water to the woods?

    45. Brian Griguts BMG Outdoors

      That tent area is so beautiful. Thanks as always for sharing your videos up there. Glad to see you’re back to two baked potatoes lol.

    46. REB65

      Great to see a tent vid 👍 Take care and God bless ✌️

    47. john roos

      johnroosterrod65@gmail.com I love using hamburger buns, and the Trinka Davis Veteran's Village has them for us. But if it was me, I would just do whole wheat bread! I guess I'm just a saver... When I get out in 2022, the frugal side of me will always win out. I can't wait until Zander gets a little bigger, so he can be with you! Semper Fidelis

    48. Barbro EvanderLindquist

    49. Bob Shaw

      Joe how long ago did you build the tent ? Joe what is the name of the lake behind your tent ? Sure is beautiful scenery there .

      1. Bob Shaw

        Do you have a heater in the shower Joe ?

    50. DCRay Davison

      Will you be bringing the snowmobile on the next winter's trip ?

    51. oodominatoroo

      Your father's craftsmanship is amazing. I've seen the inside of their cabin on your previous video's, and his attention to detail and creativity is superb!! Any plans on building or upgrading THE TENT?

    52. Alan Cooper

      nice video, so how old were u in 1980 ?? we had a metal detector but it walked away, we were at a lake and were metal detecting the sand box in the kids area [we were both 10yo at the time] we got a hit and found a $1 coin, then another and another found over $60 from just the sand box, later we got a hit on the beach sand, put the detector down and we were searching for the metal object, and our metal detector walked away. lost for ever.

    53. Mark Alverson

      Hey Joe you should try lump charcoal from Walmart or Menards it really gives a good wood flavor!

    54. Joe jones

      You need to get you a real motor cover for your boat that black plastic bag will build up condensation and cause your parts to rust up I have had it happen to me before

    55. Jeff Link

      Long time ago now, but still remember the pain. Thought I needed a waffle face hammer for framing instead of my 20 oz. fiberglass plumb. Well u know what happened. I threw that thing as far as i could and never looked back. Dang that hurt.

    56. Pete Peterson

      stay out of the cabbage that's their sanctuary open water only or edges if they are in the cabbage they are safe and you get bigger fish and more of them

    57. Pete Peterson

      if I was invited up at the tent I am sure I would be treated too a Pork steak A baked potato and mixed vegetables ay

    58. Joe jones

      Hey joe what is the name of the lake you where fishing

      1. john roos

        johnroosterrod65@gmail.com Joe Jones, I don't think Joe will tell you. I think that if he did, a lot of 'visitors' would be showing up. I think that it's so lucky that he allows us to come along! Semper Fidelis

    59. East Texas Cooking and Outdoors

      I just realized. Most of us watch this channel because we all dream of a place like this. This is actually pretty boring. Saying that, I can't wait until the next video!

    60. M852

      Go to the cabin and work, then work some more. After 20 years of doing that, it's sold and I am one happy man. Don't miss it one bit. Have fun.

    61. Hermit Holller Homestead

      Curious why you don't heat your shower water over a wood fire? It would save you money and reduce your carbon footprint.

      1. JoeandZachSurvival

        If you watch any of the other Tent videos, I do when the wood stove is going which is most of the time.

    62. Ferdinand Meyer

      Dang it Joe I'm always hungry after watching your videos! Good stuff

    63. Robin C

      did you ever in your wildest imagination ever think 43,800 people would watch you MOW???

      1. JoeandZachSurvival

        Just wait, this video will go well over a hundred thousand. LOL.

    64. Derrell Hooper

      I guess I missed the episode about the electrical source. Do you use a generator or do they have a line out that remote?

      1. Derrell Hooper

        @JoeandZachSurvival Thank You, and Good Luck with everything. Great Video's. Derrell.....

      2. JoeandZachSurvival

        I used a generator the first 7 years and then dug in grid power. The power is actually run across the bottom of the lake. It is a long story but I am now connected to the grid.

    65. Loretta Harris

      I love your channel! What a beautiful location, and your tent cabin is so cozy. It makes me feel at peace to watch your videos. Your girlfriend is a lucky women. No dog???

      1. JoeandZachSurvival

        Yes Loretta, you have to watch more of the videos. When Melissa comes up we bring the two dogs. My Black Lab Max died a few years ago. He was very old and was always with me at The Tent. We have her dogs (our dogs) now and I am still not ready to get a new lab that will replace Max. Here is the video I posted after he died. us-new.com/online/video-nHCcI6eYmrQ.html Thank You.

      Thanks for carrying us on another adventure Joe.

    69. Don Whitney

      Never listen to the video with ear phones when the camera is outdoors. I have several times swatted at the mosquitoes flying around the camera mic. :/

    70. ronnie dixon
