    Not to see you suffer to watch you take on the challenge and win by rising up to meet it

  2. popobart on September 22, 2022 at 5:26 am

    DOOM!!!!

  3. Lorraine Ricardo on September 22, 2022 at 5:26 am

    how can you eat icecream in your Van when it’s freezing outside ,

  4. Chris on September 22, 2022 at 5:27 am

    You are in Canada, isn’t beer considered blood antifreeze?

  5. J D on September 22, 2022 at 5:27 am

    You need to insulate your van. Properly insulating will massively cut down on heating costs.

  6. Gerald Klump on September 22, 2022 at 5:27 am

    You grow a man bun I will stop watching. Lol

  7. Ch3k420 on September 22, 2022 at 5:27 am

    Vans come along way!

  8. Steve O. on September 22, 2022 at 5:28 am

    Polar vortex? Let’s climb a mountain! Much respect for knowing when to turn back before the summit.

  9. Lori on September 22, 2022 at 5:29 am

    Lots of artistic bits sprinkled throughout this film and your others for that matter.
    Digging the vibe.

  16. Peace4777 on September 22, 2022 at 5:39 am

    -41c is mind-boggling 😳

    Are you a rebel? That’s the second " do not park" sign you’ve parked in front of?

  19. Bo Li on September 22, 2022 at 5:41 am

    omfg this episode is a fucking comedy show HAHA

    watch me suffer or time to grow out the man bun and hit the beach

  20. David Smith on September 22, 2022 at 5:41 am

    Beautiful terrain. We LOVE the snow, which is good bc we get 4-5 feet of snow every winter up here in the mountains where we live.
    I like your set up in your van.
    I think you’d have less mechanical and electrical problems if you’d buy a Ford Commercial grade panel van that is a 4WD.
    Do you ever come and explore the USA?
    We live in north central WA state and are able 2-3 hours from British Columbia.

  21. James Ellsworth on September 22, 2022 at 5:41 am

    Many of us might choose a similar lifestyle if local authorities would permit this as a land use.

  22. Dustin on September 22, 2022 at 5:42 am

    Are you drinking or not? Hahaha I had a chuckle. Drink up sir..

  23. Anthony C on September 22, 2022 at 5:43 am

    All things are possible with an engine block heater and 0 weight synthetic oil! (if it meets engine spec)

  24. Doug Vandegrift on September 22, 2022 at 5:43 am

    2:32 when the DOOM music kicks in!!

  25. Greg D in AZ on September 22, 2022 at 5:46 am

    Probably one of the few van-lifers that travel with a sewing machine!! 😁 The man is truly prepared. ❀️

  26. Title Examiner237 on September 22, 2022 at 5:47 am

    Excellent as always, Thanks

  27. Rachel Harris on September 22, 2022 at 5:47 am

    I forgot to tell you that I was inspired as well by your channel to try sewing which I have never done for years because I wasn’t successful and now I have my own sewing machine and I’m making craft bags for Ukraine after being shoved into sewing envy from watching your channel lol 🀣

  28. Pepper Watson on September 22, 2022 at 5:53 am

    No more summits please

  29. Vlad Dracul on September 22, 2022 at 5:54 am

    Love the fact that you are building your van life. No pre-fab super rich poser. You’re the real deal, man!

  30. Rough Collie on September 22, 2022 at 5:54 am

    you should grow a man bun and live by the beach for a good year.

  31. poland153 on September 22, 2022 at 5:55 am

    Rewatching these old episodes, makes me wonder what Foresty Forest would say if he rewatches these videos, maybe he got the wood stove a bit late πŸ™‚

  32. Jack Again on September 22, 2022 at 5:56 am

    I’ve been to Jasper, it’s the farthest north I’ve ever been. Nice to see your DJI still flies in that cold weather.

  33. Patrick Desrosiers on September 22, 2022 at 5:56 am

    Love how you use the original Doom stage theme

  34. Chubbs Peterson on September 22, 2022 at 5:57 am

    I had to come back to this old intro. I always end up head banging to it.
    FORESTY FOREST!!! Lives in a van!….. FORESTY FOOOREST!!

  35. Greg D in AZ on September 22, 2022 at 6:00 am

    When -30 is just not cold enough…slow cook some chili and head north! πŸ˜‚

  36. Dan S on September 22, 2022 at 6:00 am

    My kids all sing the foresty forest jingle. Love it.

  37. Jacob Schultz on September 22, 2022 at 6:01 am

    8:57 that’s one for the supreme court

  38. Joseph Alberta on September 22, 2022 at 6:01 am

    Beautiful scenery between Jasper and Banff.

  39. Tina Orozco on September 22, 2022 at 6:05 am

    I love watching your videos. Your travels, hiking, and cooking all while living in a van is priceless entertainment. Thank you Foresty Forest!

  40. Josevich on September 22, 2022 at 6:11 am

    Get those portable lights like aputure m9

  41. rotordave81 on September 22, 2022 at 6:13 am

    I think LGR would appreciate this, he likes small living quarters and Doom. And I assume sewing.

  42. fancyscientician on September 22, 2022 at 6:14 am

    "I’ve got a crock pot in my life that I need to take care of."

    Dude, I love your videos. Never stop never stopping!

  43. Chris Evy on September 22, 2022 at 6:15 am

    Question have you ever ran into a animal in need and did you help

  44. Pami on September 22, 2022 at 6:15 am

    Hilarious sewing in front of the "No Overnight Camping" sign. That definitely was not a coincidence.

  45. Cindi on September 22, 2022 at 6:15 am

    "Happiness belongs to the self sufficient." — Aristotle. Next to self sufficient in the dictionary:: Foresty Forest.

  46. Steven Wood on September 22, 2022 at 6:17 am

    2:34 i know that song well, and i couldnt help but laugh!

  47. Distilled Freedom on September 22, 2022 at 6:18 am

    Been looking for a channel like yours for awhile. All these van people sitting around in. The desert not adventuring at all is wild. Love the north. Love the elements. πŸ‘πŸ»

  48. Joseph Alberta on September 22, 2022 at 6:19 am

    I know it would add a bit to your cost but running the block heater is essential so I would consider a small generator to keep the batteries topped up when needed on those dark cold nights.

  49. Cookieboys Toys on September 22, 2022 at 6:19 am

    when the Doom music kicks in…. lol🀣🀣

  50. North Star on September 22, 2022 at 6:19 am

    Am I the only one who rewatches foresty videos from days gone by? Your videos are like comfort food
