The camp is ready. The stove is running and darkness has settled over the forest. And I’m sitting here enjoying myself. It was not easy to get here. I had to drive for a long time on small winding forest roads. And I drove wrong twice before I found the parking lot. But now I’m here and I have set up my tent at the south end of a lake called the long lake. In the center of Wolf Den Nature Reserve. And I have really high comfort on this trip. Sitting here in my chair. I have brought a tent stove, wood and good food. I’ll cook dinner here soon. There will be pancakes with pork. Really good. And I’ll just have a good time. The days are still short. It is only the first week in February and the snow shines with its absence. So it’s no winter. It’s only about zero degrees. But then you can hike instead. And that’s good So this is the place tonight. Tomorrow I will continue south and try to find the place called The Wolf Den. There are no signs here so I don’t know if I will find the place. Apparently it is a big boulder against a rock wall that forms a narrow passage. I don’t know if you can get through, but it will be very exciting to try to find the place. But that will be tomorrow’s project. Now there will be pancakes. Here you see what I have with me. I have a small bottle of pancake batter. Apple sauce. Diced pork. Butter. Spatula. And a frying pan. And I’ll run it on the stove But I’ll start by heating butter in the frying pan. Lots of butter. Now it starts to heat up. Now we take the pork. First I fry all pork, then I remove half of it and pour on a pancake batter. Fry a pancake, then on with some pork and pancake batter again. And so on. Good heat now. I make an extra thick pancake. This is going to be a good one. Really nice. Apple sauce. Unfortunately, I forgot a plate so I have to eat from the frying pan. Not so nice maybe but it tastes just as good. Let’s roll this one up a little nicely. This pan have a non-stick coating, so I have to cut the pancake a bit carefully. Now let’s see if this one is as good as i think. This is fantastic! Among the tastiest you can eat outdoors. Pancakes with fried pork. Terribly good. Lucky I brought a good flashlight. It’s pitch black. I’ll go out and pee before I go to bed The trees creak and moan in the wind. A little creepy. But I’m safe here in my camp. The fire is burning and smoke is coming out of the stove pipe. Time to go to bed. I have a warmer sleeping system with me this time. I had a little too thin sleeping bag with me the last time I was out. But now I have a winter sleeping bag. It can withstand temperatures down to minus 18 degrees It should be enough. I don’t think it will be colder than maybe 2-3 minus degrees. Nice. I got pretty stuffed by those pancakes. They did contain a lot of calories. No! My video lamp died. That means I have to say good night. So see you tomorrow. Very beautiful pine forest here. Big old trees. A lot of dead wood. Hilly terrain. A lot of moss. Here the bark is loose. Look at this. This nature reserve is part of a larger contiguous forest area called Mälarmården. And “mård” is an old Swedish word for forest. And “Mälarmården” is an old name for this big forest area that runs through Sörmland here in Sweden. And this is actually typical nature here in Sörmland. Rocky Pine Forest Now I will try to find the place called Varglyan
(The Wolf Den). As I said before, I don’t know where it is. It should be somewhere in the south end of the reserve, so I’m heading there now. It’s easy when you can follow a river or lake. But, when you walk through the forest like this it is difficult to keep a straight course. It’s easy that you walk in circles. What do we have here? A skull. A moose skull It must be in here. Maybe a troll lives here. A mountain troll. Or a predator. If I were a wolf I would like to live here. And hide my prey. Backpack off. Headlamp on. We will see if I dare to crawl in. It’s dark in there. But I will try. It’s humid in here. I have to crawl in. It gets narrower the further I go. I have to get down on my knees now. it’s really narrow here. I want to do it properly. I don’t want to say I’ve only been half way in. You can see the daylight coming in up there. Damn, I got stuck with my ass. Now I’m all the way in. Really cool. It is very humid and there is water on the walls. There are large boulders hanging right above me. Maybe I should move. I turn off my headlamp now. I have another lamp with me. Maybe I can stand up. Oops, I got stuck. Here I can stand up straight. There hangs a large stone. I really don’t want that in my head, Now it’s time to crawl out again. It’s not very cozy in here. Now I’m done. Nice with some cave crawling. Now I will walk back to my car and go home. But this was a really fun mini adventure. And it was really nice to spend the night in this beautiful forest. And nice that I found this cave. So, thank you for watching this video. And don’t forget to subscribe, there will be more movies. Have a good day.
