    ESCAPING ON JET SKI! 🚔 Adventure To Abandoned Tree House (24 Hour Challenge)

    January 5, 2020


    I don’t know mascot whoops no he’s
    looking he’s coming this way hold on all right what’s going on guys Papa Jake
    here we are back I think it’s safe to uh to open up the windows now we’ve been in
    a box for surviving on the lakes since last night last night semana or maybe
    just a man came to the shore and they’ve been following us for the past few days
    we’ve been thinking there were cops but now we’re more and more certain that
    they are some sort of organization or something we don’t know what they are
    yet but we have to solve this mystery this morning time I think we’re good but
    we got to make our next moves oh I can’t tonight it’s beautiful though sleeping
    in a box for it on a lake at home it’s morning it’s time to smell the birds
    guys where we left off things are getting they’re getting intense last
    night if you guys saw our last episode we evaded what we believe is no longer
    the real cops we think that people have been sent out after us after creating
    this hideout and heading out into the middle of the lake in the middle of
    nowhere we were tracked down here by a man who we heard on the radio so as you
    guys could see someone was literally on the shoreline last night trying to find
    us luckily we’re in here they couldn’t find us we turned off all of the lights
    and went to bed but I just think that means Logan we can’t stay here man it
    has been an exhausting night there have been so many bugs like now it’s morning
    they’ve kind of all gone but guys the bugs were horrible last night not to
    mention the fact that someone is quite literally hunting us down Jake our
    anchor held up it was pretty good during the night so guys I think it’s extremely
    apparent that we cannot stay here all right this mystery is getting intense I
    mean we’ve talked to more Jase too and he’s starting to piece together things
    that that could explain that the people chasing us are linked to Chad wild clay
    is hacker there is just so much going on right now and now that we know that it’s
    quite possibly not the real police I think we need to turn it around
    I think Papa Jake needs to go full investigation mode and solve this
    mystery because we cannot just stay on the run Logan Jake I I just noticed a
    really big problem one of our rafts is deflated
    you know what Logan you’re right I seemed a little shorter this morning
    that is equally a reason why we can’t stay on here and I found out that you
    can’t order pizza to know the lake that was that was very disappointing I think
    I know a place where we can hide out Logan I’m talking about the tree
    house now I know what you’re thinking I know you’re thinking it is in the
    haunted forest but we’re not too far from it we could get there could we
    paddle in this thing honestly in the state that it’s in right now I don’t
    think we can paddle I think we’re gonna need to go back to land and hike on foot
    plus we need to get back there anyway to see if we can find any information on
    this guy Logan one thing though before we go
    Papaji has to go fishing you don’t even know how to fish folk and I know how to
    fish and if we only have four MREs left we don’t know how long we’re gonna be on
    the run for we have to become hunters Logan Papa Jake has to become a hunter
    hunting is the last thing you’re good at can I know how to hunt I once went apple
    picking with my grandma mom now help me with this Jake’s on some fishing mission
    which honestly he’s not gonna catch a fish Logan I got this alright I’m gonna
    catch the biggest fish hashtag Papa Jake’s fish looks like
    there’s a lot of seaweed in there Jake alright guys you all thought Papa Jake
    couldn’t catch a fish you thought Papa Jake could not become the hunter well if
    we’re surviving on the land Papa Jake is gonna catch some fish if you believe me
    put a comment down below but I believe in myself now the key to catching a fish
    guys stupid slow guys we really need to get to shore and get a move on this day
    but of course jake has to hold us back and go fishing we are gonna be eating
    like kings what oh yeah that’s a rare form of sea fish you can eat you know
    it’s not a fish but you can still eat this loken people eat this it’s a
    delicacy we got we got to get to shore Jake no you’re right you’re right you’re
    right we need to get to shore we need to figure out this mystery we need to get
    some clues the anchor is really heavy Jake all right anchor is up we are good
    to start paddling the shore how do we know that guys still not at the shore
    well in the radio we’ve heard a few important things first thing that we
    heard guys was he was referring to someone named captain mana GU or mana Q
    I can’t really make it out too well other than that he also referred himself
    not as an officer but as a tracker I’ve never heard a
    police officer refer to themselves as a tracker which makes us believe even more
    that he is not a police officer and is hired other than that we did hear say
    he’s heading back to base so our hope is that he’s not there but like I said guys
    we need to start our journey towards that treehouse because we are sitting
    ducks out here were able to make it back to the dock oh
    it has been a while since I’ve been on land all right let’s get out of here and
    start looking around we started walking through the woods a little bit and
    they’re going down the shoreline we’re looking for any clues that we can find
    us who was here last night as you know we made it to shore we’ve been kind of
    walking along the woods here trying to see if we can find anything Logan’s been
    up ahead looking for clues it actually just started raining cloud covering kind
    of came in I guess this rain is really starting to pick up and we were getting
    deep in these woods Marines really come down dude we got
    them start making her way to the abandoned house and fast guys if we
    don’t find anything in the next a little bit I think we’re just gonna have to
    start traveling there if we get caught in this rain and get soaked we’ll have
    absolutely no shelter we got to make her way to the tree house so we can set up
    camp for the night he followed us to where we came we built a raft just near
    here maybe he wasn’t even on this side of the lake he was tracking us he would
    have come to where we started he had to have been here Logan I’m new to this all
    right I’m not used to someone some sort of police officer chasing us down it
    could have been anything sent they could have used dogs and satellite imaging I
    don’t know what the capability is that these people are Jase do thinks it’s
    lead to Chad well clays hacker I mean that’s Logan
    what where’s your phone it’s in my pocket well give me your phone right now
    this is how they hacked us Logan they used our phones how can we have been so
    stupid look if this is all your fault this is
    why they got here you use your phone to trace us Jake I didn’t even want to be
    here in the first place Logan no phones I told you that what there now we can go
    to the tree house No okay you don’t need your phone well where’s your phone okay
    that’s right here what why do you get to keep your phone cuz Logan you know I
    like to play fort night at night plus I know how to turn on airplane mode so I’m
    gonna go get my phone you know what fine have them have them find us maybe it’s
    not even our phones G wait Logan Logan what it’s like a rain poncho some sort
    you don’t think this could have been the guys do leave G there’s a clock I think
    this could’ve been the guys I don’t know looks like a map I think this might have
    belonged to who is tracing us I think they’d left this year cheek what
    is this see looks like a data card of some sort
    hey any clues on the timepiece Jake this clock says that at 6:40 6:40 what time
    is it right now it’s 9:40 why would some I have a clock that’s three hours behind
    guys I don’t know who this is but whoever it is he has a clock that’s
    three hours behind looking what time zone is three hours behind us you know I
    guess it would be someone on the west coast but we’re not on the west coast on
    the east coast all right we’re gonna hold onto this
    let’s check this map out looks like the rains picking up we did get a map here
    let’s check this out and see looks like it’s a simple map of the area looking
    what are you doing it’s raining I might as well wear the poncho Logan that’s
    evidence you can’t just wear the evidence we got a bag down and put it
    somewhere hey you know what let’s just check the map here it looks like it’s
    simple whoa look what am I looking at no looks like instructions just locate Papa
    Jake capture Papa Jake locked Alba Jacob this is a note on the back of the map
    what are those codes target 2 7 9 wait my name’s here my name’s here target 2 7
    9 papa Jake target 2 4 3 Chad wild clay target 2 8 3 Steven share with Logan
    there are other names on here other youtubers they’re targeting looking we
    have to warn these youtubers what’s going on this is somehow all lengths
    wait Logan look there’s an attack drone here Jake what’s this bus purchase
    confirmation for sweet wait bus purchase your member Chad wild clay as last video
    don’t you yeah why Logan in his last video with his hacker on the SD card
    there was a picture of a bus this has a bus confirmation order number what do
    you think that means I don’t know but it could mean that that bus is linked to
    whoever wrote these notes look we need a warm chat the rain is picking up we got
    to go somewhere fast all right we need to find that treehouse let’s start
    moving and fast we got quite a hike to go we’re currently making our way
    towards the abandoned treehouse to set up camp for the night Jake I think
    there’s a dock over there yeah looks like there’s a canoe there we just
    paddled over to the haunted forest and go to the abandoned treehouse I mean
    they’ll still take ours but it’s better than walking Jake it looks like we’re going into some
    kind of swamp yeah man you really know you’re getting
    close to the haunted forest when you go through stuff like this looks like this
    bridge is falling apart this is creepy keep an eye out guys
    okay guys I’m making it closer to the abandoned force to try to keep our voice
    down though we don’t want to draw any attention to us as of right now we still
    don’t know who these people are they’re tracing us but we are getting some more
    information and clues are coming together don’t forget guys we need your
    help to solve this mystery if you see anything suspicious or know anything
    about the clues we’re finding comment it below I like it I think we’re in a good
    spot good spot for what was we’re in a remote enough location I thought I could
    turn my phone back on and call chat Jake you’re gonna risk turning on your phone
    to call Chad what can I have two I mean yeah there’s a chance they could trace
    my phone but so what by the time they get here we’ll be miles away maybe you
    can get the word out to other youtubers and guys maybe you can get it out as
    well tell anyone on the list that Papa Jake found out they’re being targeted
    Texas guys it’s Papa Jake calling me he hardly ever calls me this must be
    important check chess that you can’t hear me look it’s Papa Jake what’s up
    Papa Jake I needed to warn you about what’s going on as you can see I’m I’m
    in the middle of nowhere I’m actually in a canoe right now in your last video I
    noticed in the drone footage there was a bottle weight yeah you saw the picture
    of that bus in my last video yeah wasn’t that picture the bus was on the drone
    wasn’t that weird I think I know what that bus is it’s related to the hacker
    on the list of paper he had your name lifted at the target not only that he
    had a bunch of other youtubers wait seriously at the bottom of that we found
    a confirmation number for a bus order I’m actually at a bus right now so that
    you’re saying this might be a stolen bus Chad I think that bus might be the one
    that you’re about to go into I needed to call you and warn you well I’m really
    glad you call because I was just about to try to get into this bus I’m gonna be
    extra careful now getting in here now that I know this might be a feeling
    with the hackers thanks Papa Jake all right talk to you soon all right guys
    well at least Chad knows now there’s still a lot of other youtubers on the
    list that we have to warn and be honest I think we’re gonna need your help to do
    it how’s it right now though we got to keep
    going we got to keep up with our time it’s only midday but we have a lot of
    traveling to do and we need to get to the tree house before the Sun sets
    or worse before it starts raining again okay yeah see you on the dock do you
    think we could use it I don’t know let’s just left here that’s getting closer
    dude if you get that seed working this we’re cut down our travel time by hours
    we could be there in like 30 minutes this is literally gonna cut down our
    travel time to buy so much all right let’s see we can get it working I don’t
    know if has any gas your goblin chief you know how to drive one of these
    welcome papa Jake knows how to drive everything okay you know what they say
    you can ride a bicycle you can drive a seadoo Jake literally no one says that I
    look what we got to move we got to get to the tree oh so fast there we go it
    started awesome all right let’s get it off of here come on perfect all right
    looks like we’re in business guys got ourselves to see do
    finally no more paddling right now if I know the map correctly it shouldn’t be
    too far from here we hit down the lake a couple miles and there should be the
    abandoned forest for the abandoned tree houses alright let’s do this thing you
    do you ready Logan let’s do this crazy adventure I gotta be locum the fun
    right now now if I’m correct the lake should be
    following along the trail here which means the haunted forest should be down
    that way yeah we definitely got to start heading this way honestly we’ve been
    making such good time guys we’re practically here looking he’s coming
    this way hold on ingenious I don’t know

    Frog Fishing – Best way to catch frogs

    January 5, 2020


    Now that’s how you do it. (Music) That is a big guy. I can’t get a good bite on it. There he is. Now that’s how you do it. So there you go. This is the way I do it. You ain’t got to chase them and it’s fun. It’s kind of like catching a big bass or
    something they fight a lot. There you go… That is how it’s done. Give it a second, let them swallow it, and just take it again. They’ll just jump after it. It really works better if you’re behind them so you can drag it up onto the bank and then they’ll usually get it every time. and if they don’t get it the first time just give it a little shake they’ll keep going after it. Then you don’t have to wade in the water. And easiest way to get them off… Is if you just grab them by the back here. So I’ll squeeze on that backbone then they can’t jump as much and it comes out pretty quick and easy. That’s why you got to really keep her in it. If you give it any slack they’ll get off. So you always want to keep it tight it’s worse than a fish. So… there you go Frogs every time Look at that big o guy. Those will be some good eating right there. Best way to catch bullfrogs. right here. Works almost every time. Real sharp hook and a nice plastic worm and… this just the way I’ve always done it I know you can usually catch I don’t know five or six and just a few minutes and that’s plenty to eat. AwwAhaww There’s two actually. That little one right there oh dang it you can get that other one Not quite close enough. Sometimes it’s a little hard to set the hook with these if you have those little worm hooks with the… it’s like a little stick it sticks down and then you hook it into that it works better. You got a really yank these and hope that the little plastic kind of comes down Because they don’t and even once you hook them they’re really easy to come out I don’t know what it is about a frog’s mouth but it just comes out pretty easy actually right in front of him. Nope right behind him but he turned there he got it you got it and that jump there it is like I said earlier no slack.. Ahhh there he goes again they get any slack they spit it out somehow it’s a lot of fun though that might be it for that patch we’ll see if we can see one more try to get one in come off of there. Caught a fish on the rebound . Wasn’t trying for that. Wasn’t even ready. I think he took it again nope. Now he’s in the weeds maybe he’ll take it again. Yep think he did. Oh get of the roots… Ahh! Dang it! Again! Oh!… I just can’t I cannot hook them today I don’t know what it is with my hook. but hey…you get the idea right it’s a little bit of fun. He might be pretty smart now. Nope. Missed him. Guess he aint smart yet. He went for it but he missed. So you got to re throw it I just hope we do a better chance of hooking him. I’ve gotten them all on the bank. Except for that one. But they all fall off as soon as they get on. Well that time we got him but he’s really… he’s trying a big old mouth open. All right finally got that one. These are smaller than the ones from the other day. You just want to get them right there around that back. Now let’s do the… look at that big old frog. Way back perspective thing. Anyway this guy that time, you got it, see look how easy that was to take out so if you give them any slack they get it out of there. That one’s not very big the tomb in the bucket we got yesterday are really big. But they’re still this was still pretty good to eat. good size look at those legs Those right there that’s a big as chicken drumstick you know Alright we’re going to let Caitlyn try it. So that was one out of four I think I got three got away this one didn’t so anyway that’s how you do it and it’s a lot more fun than a BB gun or gigging so Alright let’s let her try. Alright we’re going to let this guy go though because nobody feels like cleaning today we got to leave tomorrow so we won’t have time to eat them anyway. They’ll be here for next time. Here you go Hoppylong. You want to real it fast till it gets to the edge of the grass and then start just hopping it across the grass. Now get up there you’re too far away probably. Ok stop right there and just kind of hop it across. jiggle it a little bit jiggle it. Keep jiggling it just keep jiggling right there he’s going to it. Give it a little bit of a pull okay Now reel your slack in and then yank real hard and start reeling. Reel! Reel! if you get any slack keep reeling tight faster faster. If you give him slack he’ll get off. Reel it. Reel… back up if you have to. Don’t let him get on the ground cause he can hop spit it. Reel… back up back up. I don’t know what happened but the camera is cut out she got her first frog there I will have some close-up video hopefully mine didn’t shut off so we got some of that I did have to run down and help her it got stuck in the grass right down right down there can get it up but luckily it was hooked really well on this one actually I looked just like fish right below that bone so yeah all right below the bone there so he worked out pretty well and didn’t get off all right well first frog right there. jiggle it all right a little more a little more and right there jiggle it jiggle it around and just stop right there and try to jiggle oh there you go there you go same thing as last time reel up your slack yank hard and start reeling start reeling you let too much slack oh you let too much slack yeah alright… he jumped that time… yeah got all your slack out reel and yank reel reel reel reel don’t give me any slack get him over that grass don’t let him jump getting reel there you go Perfect He’s pretty good size Yeah All of these frogs are pretty good size Well I know those two in the bucket though are huge for frogs from yesterday. I aint grabbing this thing for nothing. That’s going on the video right there. Alright everybody caught a frog we can go back and do more chores. I aint grabbing it for nothing. Look at it squirting and throwing up on us. Alright guys best way to catch bullfrogs and the funnest thanks for watching please like subscribe do all that great stuff and we’ll catch you in the next video!

    5 Years Living on a Sailboat – Couple Shares Ups & Downs of a Liveaboard Life

    December 16, 2019


    >>TERYSA: There’s a lot that we love about the live-aboard lifestyle. What really appeals to me is the travel, the adventure and the challenge because it is challenging. I also really love the minimalist nature of our lifestyle and the fact that we are self-sufficient. The fact that we are connected to the environment in a way that you just aren’t when you live in a city.>>NICK: I love the boat. I think it’s cozy. I think it’s beautiful. It’s comfortable. You know, this is our home. It’s got just about everything we own on board. It’s just a very nice lifestyle. [Music Playing]>>TERYSA: We’ve been living on the boat for 5 years now and 4 of those have been actually actively sailing and cruising. So for the first year, we were just living in our marina, getting the boat ready to set sail and the 4 years after that, we have actually been sailing around half of the world. We have sailed from the UK down the Atlantic coast of Europe. We crossed the Atlantic Ocean and then we spent 2 years in the Caribbean and the Bahamas, the east coast of the USA and then last year we crossed the Atlantic again back to Europe and that’s where we are now. So before we moved onto our boat, we were living in London in our apartment. I was working as a paramedic and Nick was working as a dentist. So with my shift work, we didn’t actually get a chance to see each other very much. So when we were together, it was usually on the weekend while we were sailing. I think that we both felt that life in London was very hectic. It was very fast-paced and we both I think got caught up in the whole consumerism of modern day life and we crave something simpler.>>NICK: It was very, very scary making that transition from being in a job with the security of employment to going actually, you know what? I’m gonna do this while I’m young enough to enjoy it and it was it was a very brave decision I think we made. Some may say foolish but looking back on it now, we’re coming up to 5 years and it’s just the best thing we ever did. [Sounds of Water and Boat Rocking] My first boat was a little starter boat 25 feet, worth very little, learnt the ropes on that, then bought a bigger boat a 32 footer and then when I met Terysa, we hatched this plan to buy something we could live on. So this is 40 feet. So welcome to the inside of Ruby Rose the galley or kitchen as it would be known if you’re on land, is essentially a miniature version of the kitchen that we had while we were living in London. There’s not a lot that we don’t have. So we’ve got a cook, a grill and oven. We’ve got fridges. We’ve got hot and cold running water. We’ve got our coffee machine and we’ve got all the space that we could need for storage. The saloon, this is the area that we eat in. It is the area that we watch television. It has 2 large sofas. They are long enough for us to both relax, lay down on and sometimes we sleep on these. When we were crossing the Atlantic, we can pull up cloths and those cloths make cots and those cots allow us if it’s really rough to sleep in without getting thrown out of bed. We’ve got lots of storage. We’ve got this is that lovely drinks cabinet. We have a television over there with DVDs and under these sofas and to the side of the sofas, we’ve got lots of storage for books, for glasses and all our cutlery and crockery. You will also notice in the middle of the saloon, we’ve got this large box. Now this box does actually turn into an 8 seater table just in case we have a dinner party. It’s rare, but it has happened. But in addition to that our boat, the keel, the bottom of it lifts up so we can dry the boat out and this box holds the mechanism for the keel. So this is part functional but also part of our table. As you can see, it’s very, very bright and very airy. This is tough and bulletproof glass so that we can have a lot of light coming through the boat.>>TERYSA: Our first cabin I want to show you is our forecabin. This is like our guest cabin which is set up for guests but at the moment I have to admit that often we use it for storage. We have good storage on this boat but when you’re living in a tiny space then sometimes you need somewhere extra to put stuff. So I’ll just show you down here. [Terysa walking towards another cabin] This is just some extra storage here and then we’ve got a V-berth right here. This is a really comfortable cabin actually. We’ve got a big opening hatch which means that it’s got really nice airflow and you can’t see at the moment but there’s loads of storage underneath the mattress. Behind the door, there’s a big cupboard. As you can see, there’s shelves on either side and we’ve got loads of things up on those shelves at the moment. One of which is Nick’s guitar. Yes, we take Nick’s guitars – 2 guitars – everywhere with us. The other shelf has what is called a Hydrovane and it helps us steer when we’re crossing oceans. It’s another steering mechanism for us and our cabin is the master cabin which is in the aft part of the boat, at the back of the boat, and I am going to show you in there right now. [Terysa walking towards the master cabin] I have to admit that when I first got into this boat and I came into this cabin, this is what sold this boat for me. I just fell in love with it. So we’ve got a good sized bed here, big enough for two people, and we’ve also got loads of storage underneath the bed and also behind the couches on either side. You’ll notice that above our bed. We’ve got some fans. So that’s how we keep cool when we are in tropical areas, and we’ve also got some opening hatches just up here. So our bathrooms are not called bathrooms because we’re on a boat. They’re called heads instead. We have 2 of them and this is the main one. This is what we use most of the time and I’ll show you in here. It is compact, but it does have everything that we need. Obviously, we’ve got the toilet and the sink and some storage. We don’t have a separate shower. What we have to do is we take the tap or the faucet and we have to attach up at the top and that creates like a wet room. So that’s our shower. We have a pump. We can turn the pump on to pump the water out of the bottom of the floor. We’ve got a big locker here as well which we keep all our wet weather gear in. We try to stay in nice warm tropical places so we don’t actually need to go into that locker very often, but that’s where all of our foul weather gear is kept as well. [Music Playing]>>NICK: We are almost a completely green boat, so completely self sustainable. So we have solar panels for generating electricity. We have a wind generator for generating electricity and we have a hydrogenerator which we tow behind the boat, which also generates electricity. So we are completely powered. We don’t have air conditioning on board. We don’t have the power for that and all the space for an air conditioning unit and living in the Caribbean, there is always enough breeze. Where we are in marinas, we obviously have electricity. To generate water, we have a water maker that produces enough water for us to live quite happily. We have a black water holding tank, which we then pump out, when we’re 12 miles offshore. We don’t have a greywater tank. Again. it’s very difficult to find the space for one. [Music Playing] So how I made the transition? We planned probably for approximately 3 years before we moved onto the boat. We bought the boat and we had a plan. It took us 3 years to get out.>>TERYSA: There are 2 parts to our transition. One was wrapping up our life in London and the other part was getting the boat ready to set sail. So they were both happening kind of simultaneously. We had a three-bedroom apartment. We basically sold everything on eBay or got rid of everything. We have a storage unit of things that are of personal value, but it was a huge, huge undertaking getting rid of all of our stuff. The other part was that Nick had to sell his business and that took a long time and it was very stressful. For me, it was just a fairly straightforward process of resigning from my job. So when we finally had all of that wrapped up then we moved up to the boat and then we had to get the boat ready for the type of sailing and cruising that we wanted to do and that was a long process as well. That took us about a year.>>NICK: Another question we get asked a lot is how do we afford this lifestyle? What do we do to keep us going and sailing around the world? Initially, when we when we stopped work, we rented out our apartment. So we have an apartment in London and we rent that apartment out and we live on the rent. Over the last couple of years, we started our YouTube channel and the YouTube channel has really taken off. So between YouTube and Patreon we make an income from that as well. So that’s the strands of our income. [Music Playing]>>TERYSA: To be on a boat in the middle of the ocean with absolutely nothing around you, no land for sometimes thousands of miles is an experience unlike any other. It really is quite mind-blowing and it can feel quite daunting and at times, it just hits you how ridiculous the situation is that you’re just on a relatively small boat in the middle of literally nowhere as isolated as you could probably get and it’s just you and the boat and the ocean and this whole world underneath you that you can’t see or even imagine. It’s a relatively stressful situation to be in anyway, even when things are all going well because you know that there’s potential for things to go wrong. So you’re constantly doing risk assessments. You’re constantly aware that there is a danger even though you do all you can to minimize that danger. But at the end of the day, it is a huge achievement, I think, to cross an ocean on your own boat and it’s an achievement that we’ve been lucky enough to do twice so far and it’s something that you’re always glad when it’s over. But as soon as it’s over and you’ve recovered, you’re kind of looking forward to the next time. [Laughter]>>NICK: My love of the sea is formed from this. The fact that you have to respect it, the fact that it gives so much but asks so much from you as well. A lot of people ask this what do we do at night? Do we stop sailing at night? Yes, we generally stop sailing at night if we’re not on long passages. Otherwise, we have to stay up and keep watch. But when we moor the boat, it depends on the region we are in. In Europe, so far the Mediterranean it’s been a lot of marinas because there aren’t many places to anchor. In the Caribbean, it was anchoring almost exclusively for 2 years. We tend to avoid mooring buoys unless we’re in very, very crowded anchorages. But it just depends on the area we are in.>>TERYSA: The food situation on the boat is pretty similar to living on land really except because we aren’t always near supermarkets. In fact often, especially in the Caribbean we are nowhere near supermarkets sometimes for months at a time. We have to be very careful about when we provision, what we’re buying, and making sure that we’re planning ahead. The other thing is that when we do provision, we often have to take several hours to do that. So when you’re living on land, usually you just jump in the car, you drive to a supermarket and it’s all done within an hour or so. Living on a boat, a) our form of transportation is usually just our legs. Also, the supermarkets are generally a reasonable walk away and then we have to carry everything ourselves back to the boat. So we can’t buy as much at any one time. How we provision really depends on where we are and the way that we’re sailing when we’re preparing for an ocean crossing for example. The longest crossing we’ve done has been 3 weeks. So we had to have 3 weeks worth of food on board at that time. We were able to catch fish on passage which helped a little bit but we had to assume that we weren’t going to be able to do that. And that was a bit of a challenge, especially with fresh food. So this is our cockpit area and this is where we spend almost all of our time, especially when we’re at anchor. We love just lounging around and relaxing in the cockpit. But also when we’re underway, we’re obviously almost always in the cockpit. So it’s very comfortable area and it’s a very safe area. So I’ll just show you a few of the features. We have 2 helming positions and this is the main one that we use. We use this because it’s got most of our controls here. So as you can see, I’ve got things like the compass. I’ve got controls for the keel, for the windlass which is what helps us drop our anchor into the water, for our bow thruster which allows us to move our bow from side to side and our ignition for our engine. So we’ve got quite a lot of stuff going on right here. If I take you to the other helming position. This is where we have our VHF radio and this is how we communicate with nearby boats when we are sailing. We’ve also got a chart plotter which is obviously off right now because we are all tied up but generally speaking this is on especially when we’re underway and we use this to look at our charts, our electronic charts, as well as to see the boats around us and we also have radar so that shows up on here as well. We have quite a lot of safety equipment on the back of our boat here We’ve some Man Overboard equipment as well as our life raft. Over on this side, we have some more fun items: we have our barbecue and our Eski as well as our outboard engine which we attached to our dinghy and that’s how we get around when we are at anchor. We have 4 winches. One on either side here and 2 just behind me. Most of our lines come back to these 2 winches and this is how we control both of the sails and this is really great because we’ve set up our boat to control everything from the cockpit so we don’t ever need to go forward which means it is a much safer setup. So in rough seas or rough weather we can just stay in the safety of cockpit. We can tie ourselves onto the railing here or we’ve got these tie off points here and we don’t ever need to leave but we can manage the sails from here.>>NICK: Every boat should have a navigation station and/or a chart table. We keep all our charts in this table here. In addition to this, we’ve got some modern-day twists on traditional navigation. We’ve got both our radios here. So we’ve got our regular radio, which is our VHF radio for talking to people within about a 40 mile range. We’ve also got a high frequency radio so we can talk to people using what’s called an SSB, a single sideband radio, anywhere on the planet. You can get up to and including 3-4,000 miles range. So it also has our satellite phone and other ways of communicating if we’re trying to get weather conditions at sea. Moving back a little bit, there’s a control panel here and that is to do with our electricity, controlling how much water we have, controlling how much electricity we’re using whether it’s the solar panels or whether it’s our wind generator because as you can imagine if you are living off-grid as we do you have to be really careful about your usage of water. How much tank space we’ve got? How much electricity we’re using? Whether the sun’s out? Whether it’s windy? and so we can monitor quite carefully and quite accurately how much water and electricity we are using. So the challenges of the sailing lifestyle. I think you do have to appreciate from day one, from the get-go, whether you’ve got a new boat or an old boat, you will be repairing things every day. Everything needs maintenance and that maintenance is a lot more frequent and extensive than a house. That’s the first thing. The challenges really are not getting burnout. That was the biggest challenge for us. You do need at some point to put some roots down, spend a month in a place. And so those I think are the biggest challenges. I haven’t found anything else to be a challenge. We haven’t struggled with WiFi at all. Local SIM cards and a WiFi booster have dealt with all that. Meeting friends and then having to leave friends is also difficult. But that’s just the sailing life and you have to accept that.>>TERYSA: Another challenge is that we are so connected to the environment which in a way is part of what we love about this lifestyle so much but the flip side of that is that we are completely at the mercy of the weather. And so our plans really are dictated by the weather, not just seasonal weather i.e. prevailing winds for that time of year but more localized weather as well and we can have the intention of being at a certain place, on a certain date. But the reality is that we never quite know what we’re going to be doing on any given day. Because we don’t know what the weather’s gonna be like. More than once, we have been woken up in the middle of the night because the weather has changed and it can be really challenging. You might be in an anchorage that was perfectly safe in the evening and then by two o’clock in the morning, it’s become unsafe and you have to move in the middle of the night. So that’s another challenge as well is you have to be constantly aware of the weather conditions, of your environment and change your plans to suit those. [Music Playing] The other thing about living on a boat is that I think you really do have to push yourself all the time. The entire experience is a challenge for reasons that we’ve already talked about, but you also are constantly learning new skills. Nick has had to learn how to be an electrician, a plumber, a carpenter. I have had to become a logistician, a planner, organizer and navigator; in addition to being sailors. You have to be a little bit of everything when you’re living on a boat because you don’t have any other experts to turn to. You are the only people who can solve a particular problem on a certain day, and it’s a constant learning curve. We are learning every day. Every year, we’re getting better and better and we’re getting more and more experience but there is always going to be so much more to learn.>>NICK: I look back on what we’ve done over the last 4 years and it has been the best 4 years of my life, without fail. Being able to take all that you hold as possessions, and your entire house with you and continually change the view, experiencing different cultures and living those cultures. Experiencing life in a way that we would never have experienced it if we had done it any other way. There have been downs, of course, there have been downs. But overall looking back, it’s just been bloody awesome, like amazing. We have achieved so much and we are so much happier now.

    PAPA JAKE HAS BEEN CAPTURED!! He Won’t Escape The Hacker

    October 19, 2019


    hey yo what’s going on guys it’s Papa
    Jake here and as you know we are currently on the run from what we
    believe are either hackers spies or potentially worse we were able to make
    it back to our house after the last video we had to escape the haunted woods
    at 3 a.m. we used camera setup in those woods to track the movements of these
    creepers and were able to escape just in time we’re now back home but we are
    still on the run from them we don’t know who they are or what they want but guys
    get this we were able to find one of their iPhones that’s right this fell out
    of one of their pockets after they tripped and we’re gonna be using this
    today to hack into it and try and get some more information on who is
    following us as of right now all we know is that they’re coming after youtubers
    and they have a list of youtubers including me
    the sheriff family Chad wild play and a bunch of other youtubers we don’t know
    why they want us and we don’t know how dangerous these guys are right now I’m
    feeling pretty safe as you can see we’re back home after spending the last almost
    week in the woods it’s nice to be back here but look and I was just pulling
    them in on everything we’re still definitely not out of the clear no these
    cats could be anywhere I think our first priority today is gonna be hacking into
    this phone and figure out as much information as we can on these guys
    anything we can get from them it’s gonna be extremely important but guys one of
    the most important things is all of your support through this you guys have been
    amazing all these comments all of your likes sharing the videos getting the
    word out there and most importantly alerting other youtubers of the
    information we’re finding we’re putting together a case using all of your guys
    information and you’re helping us solve this mystery together so yeah guys as of
    right now there’s a few different theories but it goes from anywhere to
    this being the government to being someone trying to get rid of YouTube
    vloggers which is why they haven’t been attacking gamers I mean all the way to
    this being some sort of evil corporation trying to stop youtubers as you can see
    everyone’s helping out but we need your help as well wait guys I think I hear
    something downstairs I heard that too this house is so big
    there’s no way we’re gonna cover every entrance check the back check back something there look gia that it’s a
    security alarm one of the doors is opening let’s read
    answers quickly great if you think we’ve gone in the basement it’s the only door
    we didn’t check it’s closed to be in any Spock’s words there’s no way we’re gonna
    check all of this yeah check in here no the windows are open Shh you guys have
    to get here something in the front window come on Logan come on this way
    oh this isn’t good guys you seen this one in the window
    Lupe’s right there is the door I saw behind the door it’s one behind the door
    look he’s right there he’s right there guys this isn’t good when you hacked
    into this phone and figure it out they must know we have their phone that’s why
    they’re coming after us at our house look and what are we gonna do we have to
    get out of here man they’re literally surrounding the house get out of here we
    have to go down all right guys I’m ideal let’s grab my
    car and head out the garage because it’s Cape with the car and find a place to
    hack into this phone I’ve got my keys on me let’s go let’s go head to the cross
    come on guys we got to go we gotta get out of here and find a place where we
    can hack into this phone Hey look and get in get in
    look at this one coming get it get it get it really quickly let’s go let’s go
    let’s go she’s coming he’s coming
    get this out of you man we’re getting out of here all right let’s get out of
    here Logan we gotta get out of here and fast Jake where are we gonna go
    all right have an idea guys if we’re gonna hide out somewhere I think we can
    go to our old fort if you guys remember our previous box for video we made an
    awesome fallout shelter I think we head back there there’s no way we’ll find us
    there it’s a little bit of a drive but once we get there we should be able to
    get inside and use it as a base of operations the definitely be on our
    trail to Logan hi I’ve got an idea I’m gonna put the car in launch control and
    send this out it’s just really fast once we’re around the corner
    I’ll put it into electric mode and we’ll cruise around that way they won’t be
    able to hear us and we’ll be able to escape back to the fort
    once we’re there we can hack into the phone all right putting in wash control
    all right ready guys cheek that was so fast all right we got
    around the corner quickly by putting into electric mode now there’s no way
    they can be able to hear us hi this is perfect let’s head back to
    the Ford and a key to this phone shouldn’t be too far of a drive but
    we’ll keep an eye out and see if they’re following us
    come on guys – should be out this way oh wow guys the fort what is Roy I don’t
    think I’ve ever seen this happen to a box store this thing has been rushed
    supposed to been from all the storms we had lately guys wow the entire canopy
    that we had above it securing it from the water just fell on it well this this
    part of the floor it still looks good yeah the back looks like it’s an
    operation oh yeah do the lights are still on
    I should be able to pull off the back door here seems perfect for us to hide
    out and there’s no way they’re gonna look here so who’s going first in case there’s
    raccoons all right looks like Logan’s gonna go first hopefully there’s no
    animals in here let me get it set up whoa god this is crazy the whole four
    days like collapse dude check this out
    you can literally see like the line where the fort just collapsed this is
    raisi I mean at least we did a really good job
    on this side this part held up very well but yeah it looks like we’re not getting
    any farther than that way is there even a way through that look no this is this
    is a dead end to the fort all right well we can use the second story of the four
    to set up shop and hack into the cycle okay guys let’s do this and see we can
    find on this phone I’m gonna plug it in here there we go and see if we can hack
    into it first things first if we can get past the phone’s password hi hold on you
    in it Jake are you sure we’re even safe here
    they were just on our tail I mean it’s the least likely place for them to look
    we’d see enough time to get in your figure out what’s going on okay hold on
    a monster just around the program here basically brute-forcing the password
    dude I got it we’re in all perfect okay here we go downloading the data see what we have no
    although again what looks like they remotely cleared the phone they like the
    phone you try to remove all the data from it no no no no no mostly
    everything’s missing hold on cheek what does that mean I’m easily deleted
    everything off the phone once they knew we had it I’m gonna try and run a
    recovery software see what I can get from it
    look and check this out what is it look it’s some sort of map that they have on
    here so must be how they’re tracking us youtubers check out
    hold on I’m pulling some other stuff the recovery software is gonna try and pull
    everything off of this phone and put it into one folder so we can look what was
    on it and should be almost done I’ve got
    access to the files in the iPhone whoa guys it’s a text message someone owns
    the leader he says is the job done person’s phone that we took says yes
    well Papa Jake has escaped but we are tracking him guys it’s definitely make
    sense this is from the tracker this is who was tracking us your replies find
    him and what about the other sets that must be the other youtubers the other
    youtubers are slowly being captured soon our plan will be complete
    like great one nice is go forth Logan whoever this phone is texting they have
    a leader it doesn’t mean that these people are random there there’s some
    sort of organization I mean this could be an organization a spy to be an
    organization of hackers beep we just don’t know pray let’s see what else we
    got on here that’s the sharers house they have a satellite image of the
    Sherry’s house Logan guys this isn’t good they’re slowly using some some way
    to track it I don’t know what it could be
    however they’re doing it they’re tracking us and they have imagery of
    Carters house oh no this isn’t good this is good let’s do it officers dude what
    is this that it’s like a compound of some sort looks almost like a prison
    looks like it’s in the mists being built it’s just a wider view of the shop Oh
    what bad dude I have no idea it’s like graffiti or something yeah
    this is weird guys let me know in the comments if you have any idea what that
    could be all right looks like there’s two more
    files on here it’s a smaller weight Jake that’s the
    school that’s the Chad was in guys this means that that we are correct this this
    means that this is linked to Chad wild clay
    this means that whoever is doing this they’re all linked together maybe you
    can help us to KO some the information here maybe you can use what you’ve seen
    here to give us some more information : there’s one more file here let me bring
    it up seems like it’s a video Gus I know what this is from I can hear Carter
    share is voicing this look and you were there this is from Carter shares fourth
    of July party guys that means whoever this phone belonged to was that Carter
    share his house on the fourth of July that means that this could be narrowed
    down to as small as 50 to 60 people more importantly guys Carter’s in trouble I
    need to call him right now I’m gonna grab my phone call Carter Carter is that
    you can you hear me guys I need to warn you okay I don’t know if you know what’s
    going on right now but there is someone after us they’ve been tracking us down I
    don’t know if they’re hackers or spies or something were some sort of
    organization but we’ve already had multiple men show up at our house
    there’s been someone tracking us even so far as the forest I’ve been on the run
    for the pain I don’t know I don’t know how dangerous they are but I don’t know
    right now guys we’re hiding out in a box port but there’s something I need to
    tell you something extremely important you need to know about them you can’t
    trust anyone not even any of the other youtubers you can’t trust anyone
    Carter we found a video on the phone we can what I think someone’s here what if
    would it what do you mean we’re gonna just cut up the screen smoking look
    what’s going on it’s getting smoking when you smoke coming from is there fire
    near everyone ladies Ygritte there whoa whoa yeah watch out watch out thirty
    thirty we gotta go we gotta go now guys if you see this tell Carter share what
    we know give him the infrared Logan what is that
    there’s a crow we’re gonna cool abort okay

    HOW TO MAKE – Sailboat out of bottles

    September 15, 2019


    Hi guys! The construction of the Ficusland continues, but in the meantime we decided to sail a bit by making a sailboat out of bottles. So, we brought the bottles to the place of filming, these are 6 liter bottles. We calculated that our entire sailboat will occupy 2 cubic meters as a whole, which is 2000 liters in volume. And now we’re starting to build our sailboat first we make such small blocks of 2 bottles and join them together using tape then we connect these blocks of 2 into blocks of 4 so, we have a ready bottom part, and we started to build the sides. Let’s check how heavy it is at the moment. can you lift? It’s quite light can you lift the whole structure? Wow! Rambo Tell us what will it be? it will be such a structure that will be attached to these bottles. I mean it’s something like, how’s that thing called which carries sails in a boat, the mast right? Yes, mast Basically it’s the stick on which our sailboat will be placed. Why do we need the wooden construction? Well, it’s because if we attach this thing to the bottles, it will simply not hold, so we need a more reliable construction and for this we make such a wooden frame. but the main part will be located at the bottom of our sailboat, so it shouldn’t be visible. so, we made this simple construction, with the help of which the canvas, which will be here later, can be rotated. To do this, we attached ropes here so that from any end of our sailboat it could be controlled. By the way, the quadrature of this canvas turned out to be 4 square meters. According to Wikipedia, there shouldn’t be more than 5 or 8 square meters per person, because if there is more, then the person simply can’t cope with it. I think we can handle it I think our sail will be enough for this sailboat and for the two of us. Well, our sail will be also from such improvised means. It will be a stretch film of blue color to make it beautiful Let’s put it guys! By the way, it’s relatively light. Yeah, light! So, we have already arrived at this amazingly wonderful place. Look how beautiful it is! Here we’ll check our sailing boat. But there is a small problem. The wind is blowing from that shore towards us. Therefore, it’s likely that won’t not be able to sail. So, we’ll attach our motor here, cross to the other side, and from there we’ll sail along the lake on our sailboat. come on, come on, come on! Well, we attached the motor, took the battery, camera and me and we’re ready to go! because the sail canvas is ready as well. yes, just check out how cool it looks! : but there’s a problem, we don’t know how to control the sail. Once we were on a yacht and this sail almost threw me overboard it was a real yacht, yeah? yes, it was a real yacht but we will try to cope with this sail, which we made ourselves. you see, the wind is blowing in this direction, like that. We need to get there first. Right? Let’s try! we are sailing. Friends we’re sailing. I want to sail at full speed. we’re sailing with a sail we are sailing against the tide and we haven’t started the motor We’re trying to keep the sail along the wind so that it does not interfere with sailing to that shore, now we are sailing with the motor on. : we planned to sail there, but the wind changed its direction, and now we are sailing in the opposite direction that Did you see? Yes against the current we are sailing against the tide and see how fast we’re moving to the shore? Yes, we’re heading to the shore. we are mooring up. Our driver Ficus can apply for the driving license. I wonder what is the driving license for ship is called. There’s a strong wind now but I want to check how the yacht will sail in such wind The sailing was incredibly cool we got a cool idea. If we get a lot of likes for this video, then we’ll make a sailboat on wheels amphibious sailboat. we will ride on the field with the help of the wind. If you like the idea, be sure to hit the thumbs up so that we know that you want to film us that video : also write in the comments what you want to see in our next video, what do you want us to build? Write everything below Are you waiting for the ficus land? subscribe to the channel, click on the bell so as not to miss the n Thanks for being with us till next time bye

    ESCAPING ON JET SKI! ? Adventure To Abandoned Tree House (24 Hour Challenge)

    September 8, 2019


    I don’t know mascot whoops no he’s
    looking he’s coming this way hold on all right what’s going on guys Papa Jake
    here we are back I think it’s safe to uh to open up the windows now we’ve been in
    a box for surviving on the lakes since last night last night semana or maybe
    just a man came to the shore and they’ve been following us for the past few days
    we’ve been thinking there were cops but now we’re more and more certain that
    they are some sort of organization or something we don’t know what they are
    yet but we have to solve this mystery this morning time I think we’re good but
    we got to make our next moves oh I can’t tonight it’s beautiful though sleeping
    in a box for it on a lake at home it’s morning it’s time to smell the birds
    guys where we left off things are getting they’re getting intense last
    night if you guys saw our last episode we evaded what we believe is no longer
    the real cops we think that people have been sent out after us after creating
    this hideout and heading out into the middle of the lake in the middle of
    nowhere we were tracked down here by a man who we heard on the radio so as you
    guys could see someone was literally on the shoreline last night trying to find
    us luckily we’re in here they couldn’t find us we turned off all of the lights
    and went to bed but I just think that means Logan we can’t stay here man it
    has been an exhausting night there have been so many bugs like now it’s morning
    they’ve kind of all gone but guys the bugs were horrible last night not to
    mention the fact that someone is quite literally hunting us down Jake our
    anchor held up it was pretty good during the night so guys I think it’s extremely
    apparent that we cannot stay here all right this mystery is getting intense I
    mean we’ve talked to more Jase too and he’s starting to piece together things
    that that could explain that the people chasing us are linked to Chad wild clay
    is hacker there is just so much going on right now and now that we know that it’s
    quite possibly not the real police I think we need to turn it around
    I think Papa Jake needs to go full investigation mode and solve this
    mystery because we cannot just stay on the run Logan Jake I I just noticed a
    really big problem one of our rafts is deflated
    you know what Logan you’re right I seemed a little shorter this morning
    that is equally a reason why we can’t stay on here and I found out that you
    can’t order pizza to know the lake that was that was very disappointing I think
    I know a place where we can hide out Logan I’m talking about the tree
    house now I know what you’re thinking I know you’re thinking it is in the
    haunted forest but we’re not too far from it we could get there could we
    paddle in this thing honestly in the state that it’s in right now I don’t
    think we can paddle I think we’re gonna need to go back to land and hike on foot
    plus we need to get back there anyway to see if we can find any information on
    this guy Logan one thing though before we go
    Papaji has to go fishing you don’t even know how to fish folk and I know how to
    fish and if we only have four MREs left we don’t know how long we’re gonna be on
    the run for we have to become hunters Logan Papa Jake has to become a hunter
    hunting is the last thing you’re good at can I know how to hunt I once went apple
    picking with my grandma mom now help me with this Jake’s on some fishing mission
    which honestly he’s not gonna catch a fish Logan I got this alright I’m gonna
    catch the biggest fish hashtag Papa Jake’s fish looks like
    there’s a lot of seaweed in there Jake alright guys you all thought Papa Jake
    couldn’t catch a fish you thought Papa Jake could not become the hunter well if
    we’re surviving on the land Papa Jake is gonna catch some fish if you believe me
    put a comment down below but I believe in myself now the key to catching a fish
    guys stupid slow guys we really need to get to shore and get a move on this day
    but of course jake has to hold us back and go fishing we are gonna be eating
    like kings what oh yeah that’s a rare form of sea fish you can eat you know
    it’s not a fish but you can still eat this loken people eat this it’s a
    delicacy we got we got to get to shore Jake no you’re right you’re right you’re
    right we need to get to shore we need to figure out this mystery we need to get
    some clues the anchor is really heavy Jake all right anchor is up we are good
    to start paddling the shore how do we know that guys still not at the shore
    well in the radio we’ve heard a few important things first thing that we
    heard guys was he was referring to someone named captain mana GU or mana Q
    I can’t really make it out too well other than that he also referred himself
    not as an officer but as a tracker I’ve never heard a
    police officer refer to themselves as a tracker which makes us believe even more
    that he is not a police officer and is hired other than that we did hear say
    he’s heading back to base so our hope is that he’s not there but like I said guys
    we need to start our journey towards that treehouse because we are sitting
    ducks out here were able to make it back to the dock oh
    it has been a while since I’ve been on land all right let’s get out of here and
    start looking around we started walking through the woods a little bit and
    they’re going down the shoreline we’re looking for any clues that we can find
    us who was here last night as you know we made it to shore we’ve been kind of
    walking along the woods here trying to see if we can find anything Logan’s been
    up ahead looking for clues it actually just started raining cloud covering kind
    of came in I guess this rain is really starting to pick up and we were getting
    deep in these woods Marines really come down dude we got
    them start making her way to the abandoned house and fast guys if we
    don’t find anything in the next a little bit I think we’re just gonna have to
    start traveling there if we get caught in this rain and get soaked we’ll have
    absolutely no shelter we got to make her way to the tree house so we can set up
    camp for the night he followed us to where we came we built a raft just near
    here maybe he wasn’t even on this side of the lake he was tracking us he would
    have come to where we started he had to have been here Logan I’m new to this all
    right I’m not used to someone some sort of police officer chasing us down it
    could have been anything sent they could have used dogs and satellite imaging I
    don’t know what the capability is that these people are Jase do thinks it’s
    lead to Chad well clays hacker I mean that’s Logan
    what where’s your phone it’s in my pocket well give me your phone right now
    this is how they hacked us Logan they used our phones how can we have been so
    stupid look if this is all your fault this is
    why they got here you use your phone to trace us Jake I didn’t even want to be
    here in the first place Logan no phones I told you that what there now we can go
    to the tree house No okay you don’t need your phone well where’s your phone okay
    that’s right here what why do you get to keep your phone cuz Logan you know I
    like to play fort night at night plus I know how to turn on airplane mode so I’m
    gonna go get my phone you know what fine have them have them find us maybe it’s
    not even our phones G wait Logan Logan what it’s like a rain poncho some sort
    you don’t think this could have been the guys do leave G there’s a clock I think
    this could’ve been the guys I don’t know looks like a map I think this might have
    belonged to who is tracing us I think they’d left this year cheek what
    is this see looks like a data card of some sort
    hey any clues on the timepiece Jake this clock says that at 6:40 6:40 what time
    is it right now it’s 9:40 why would some I have a clock that’s three hours behind
    guys I don’t know who this is but whoever it is he has a clock that’s
    three hours behind looking what time zone is three hours behind us you know I
    guess it would be someone on the west coast but we’re not on the west coast on
    the east coast all right we’re gonna hold onto this
    let’s check this map out looks like the rains picking up we did get a map here
    let’s check this out and see looks like it’s a simple map of the area looking
    what are you doing it’s raining I might as well wear the poncho Logan that’s
    evidence you can’t just wear the evidence we got a bag down and put it
    somewhere hey you know what let’s just check the map here it looks like it’s
    simple whoa look what am I looking at no looks like instructions just locate Papa
    Jake capture Papa Jake locked Alba Jacob this is a note on the back of the map
    what are those codes target 2 7 9 wait my name’s here my name’s here target 2 7
    9 papa Jake target 2 4 3 Chad wild clay target 2 8 3 Steven share with Logan
    there are other names on here other youtubers they’re targeting looking we
    have to warn these youtubers what’s going on this is somehow all lengths
    wait Logan look there’s an attack drone here Jake what’s this bus purchase
    confirmation for sweet wait bus purchase your member Chad wild clay as last video
    don’t you yeah why Logan in his last video with his hacker on the SD card
    there was a picture of a bus this has a bus confirmation order number what do
    you think that means I don’t know but it could mean that that bus is linked to
    whoever wrote these notes look we need a warm chat the rain is picking up we got
    to go somewhere fast all right we need to find that treehouse let’s start
    moving and fast we got quite a hike to go we’re currently making our way
    towards the abandoned treehouse to set up camp for the night Jake I think
    there’s a dock over there yeah looks like there’s a canoe there we just
    paddled over to the haunted forest and go to the abandoned treehouse I mean
    they’ll still take ours but it’s better than walking Jake it looks like we’re going into some
    kind of swamp yeah man you really know you’re getting
    close to the haunted forest when you go through stuff like this looks like this
    bridge is falling apart this is creepy keep an eye out guys
    okay guys I’m making it closer to the abandoned force to try to keep our voice
    down though we don’t want to draw any attention to us as of right now we still
    don’t know who these people are they’re tracing us but we are getting some more
    information and clues are coming together don’t forget guys we need your
    help to solve this mystery if you see anything suspicious or know anything
    about the clues we’re finding comment it below I like it I think we’re in a good
    spot good spot for what was we’re in a remote enough location I thought I could
    turn my phone back on and call chat Jake you’re gonna risk turning on your phone
    to call Chad what can I have two I mean yeah there’s a chance they could trace
    my phone but so what by the time they get here we’ll be miles away maybe you
    can get the word out to other youtubers and guys maybe you can get it out as
    well tell anyone on the list that Papa Jake found out they’re being targeted
    Texas guys it’s Papa Jake calling me he hardly ever calls me this must be
    important check chess that you can’t hear me look it’s Papa Jake what’s up
    Papa Jake I needed to warn you about what’s going on as you can see I’m I’m
    in the middle of nowhere I’m actually in a canoe right now in your last video I
    noticed in the drone footage there was a bottle weight yeah you saw the picture
    of that bus in my last video yeah wasn’t that picture the bus was on the drone
    wasn’t that weird I think I know what that bus is it’s related to the hacker
    on the list of paper he had your name lifted at the target not only that he
    had a bunch of other youtubers wait seriously at the bottom of that we found
    a confirmation number for a bus order I’m actually at a bus right now so that
    you’re saying this might be a stolen bus Chad I think that bus might be the one
    that you’re about to go into I needed to call you and warn you well I’m really
    glad you call because I was just about to try to get into this bus I’m gonna be
    extra careful now getting in here now that I know this might be a feeling
    with the hackers thanks Papa Jake all right talk to you soon all right guys
    well at least Chad knows now there’s still a lot of other youtubers on the
    list that we have to warn and be honest I think we’re gonna need your help to do
    it how’s it right now though we got to keep
    going we got to keep up with our time it’s only midday but we have a lot of
    traveling to do and we need to get to the tree house before the Sun sets
    or worse before it starts raining again okay yeah see you on the dock do you
    think we could use it I don’t know let’s just left here that’s getting closer
    dude if you get that seed working this we’re cut down our travel time by hours
    we could be there in like 30 minutes this is literally gonna cut down our
    travel time to buy so much all right let’s see we can get it working I don’t
    know if has any gas your goblin chief you know how to drive one of these
    welcome papa Jake knows how to drive everything okay you know what they say
    you can ride a bicycle you can drive a seadoo Jake literally no one says that I
    look what we got to move we got to get to the tree oh so fast there we go it
    started awesome all right let’s get it off of here come on perfect all right
    looks like we’re in business guys got ourselves to see do
    finally no more paddling right now if I know the map correctly it shouldn’t be
    too far from here we hit down the lake a couple miles and there should be the
    abandoned forest for the abandoned tree houses alright let’s do this thing you
    do you ready Logan let’s do this crazy adventure I gotta be locum the fun
    right now now if I’m correct the lake should be
    following along the trail here which means the haunted forest should be down
    that way yeah we definitely got to start heading this way honestly we’ve been
    making such good time guys we’re practically here looking he’s coming
    this way hold on ingenious I don’t know

    How to build an EPIC Floating Dock

    September 7, 2019


    Big brother thinks he’s going to have some fun? I’m going to have some fun to What are you doing…you idiot I’m Andrew I’m Kevin Welcome to Brojects! This weekend we’ve decided to build the ultimate swim raft Yeah I am pumped about this project it’s going to be awesome! Any other time I’ve been on a swim raft yeah it’s alright you get out there you
    hang around for a few minutes and then you leave basically We’re trying to make
    this so that you’re able to go out there and stay and really have know wants out there if you’re hungry got something if you want a beverage it’s there So it’s a long weekend we’ve got three
    days to build the ultimate swim raft we get a simple eight by
    sixteen foot platform and we’re gonna put five barrels
    per side to give us our pontoon style flotation on top of the platform we’re gonna build a
    pergola we’re gonna use four by fours as the uprights with two by six cross braces we’re gonna need seating as well as
    storage so a couple rectangular boxes should accomplish both the plan is to stay on board for long
    stretches so both the barbecue and a drink cooler are mandatory we’re gonna put a couple
    hammocks on board as well some hooks for our fishing rods To get moving we’re thinking of installing an electric trolling motor to accompany that a solar panel table This is an ambitious weekend build but if we put our minds to it I think we can do it It’s taking a lot longer than we expected We’re flying at it we got a lot of daylight left today Time crunches on…we’ve finally finished our little window frame exterior perimeter It will look great when you’re on it but We need to skirt it for sure…Junior? Skirt? I don’t do skirts man that’s your thing and Kevin is gonna cut out our notches
    for our four by four uprights we’re about two days behind on the decking but hopefully it will go fast from here on out Believe it or not we are both self
    trained carpenters You might not notice that it’s trial and error…all this stuff is trial and error These are a couple of benches we built to go on the back of the swim platform Pretty simple little cedar boxes we can take off the lid inside is where we’re going to keep the
    battery for the electric trolling motor and the other
    ones gonna be dry storage Not too bad…if I do say so myself The plexiglass is going to fit right on top of the solar panel Little table for the back of the swim raft I just get the little people to do the work for me after I do the brainstorming I wouldn’t say I’m the little people This is head and shoulders above what the initial thing started out to be We threw in a lot of extras like the pergola and the barbecue and the solar panel by the end I think we
    nailed this one I’m leaving man…you coming? I’m out of here! You made it! Whoa! Easy! Look’s pretty good I like it You want to play some pong? Yea I can’t wait to destroy you

    24 HOUR ABANDONED TREEHOUSE CHALLENGE! Escaping Hacker, Spies or Worse?

    September 3, 2019


    what’s going on guys is Papa Jake here
    and Before we jump into the video you’re probably wondering Papa Jake why are you
    in a tree for it Papa Jake why is there a box for buying you Papa Jake why does
    it look like you have a showered in three days well all those will be
    answered very shortly let’s uh let’s recap what’s been going on because the
    last week of my life has been probably the craziest week of my life and I need
    to bring you guys up to speed because we’re going through this together no no
    he’s still there he’s still there Jake it looks like we’re going into some kind
    of swamp yeah looks like this bridge is falling
    apart no he’s looking he’s coming this way hold on I don’t know hey what’s going on guys Papa Jake here
    and we are back guys we just escaped from a crazy sea do chase on our way to
    the haunted forest where there is an abandoned treehouse as of right now we
    are being followed by well we’re not exactly sure we originally thought they
    were the cops but they’re definitely not no that guy had a black mask on I don’t
    know if it’s from an organization if he’s a hacker a spy or or worse but guys
    right now we need to lay low and get out of here before they find us
    we found some clues that will go over in a little bit but as you can see the
    rains coming down I am freezing we need to get to our shelter and set up camp
    fast the treehouse shouldn’t be too far in here so let’s start hiking but Logan
    keep an eye out hi guys how’s closed guys I have no idea how they’ve been
    tracking us Jake maybe was that phone call you made you’re right it could have
    been but look and I had to warn Chad wild clay I don’t want all of the
    youtubers on that list it looks like these guys were tracking down youtubers
    for what I don’t know but on the list it has something about locking me up one
    should just be over here guys this is turning into one crazy adventure we
    brought barely enough supplies it’s been raining almost every day and we’ve been
    surviving out here look I don’t know what day it is
    I think it’s day two Jake hi look guys we got to get to this treehouse start
    building the shelter and try and get warm we don’t belong supplies but what
    we do have should be able to last as well we just we need to lose these guys
    you guys have been helping us so much in the comments with what this might be and
    just spreading the word guys be sure to comment down below what you guys think
    is going on cuz this is getting crazy Jake it’s right there well we found it
    welcoming we made it oh we did it look I finally did it
    hold that hiking man high-five okay it’s the Bandit treehouse guys duty
    so big this this is gonna be our new home Logan this is this is our base now
    this is where we’re gonna have to live and lay low you think it’s been here
    uh-huh dude look it’s a fire bowl yeah we can
    definitely fix this up we gotta be careful though guys this thing’s been
    abandoned and not only could it be breaking but also we don’t know what
    type of animals could be here how is it in there 360 degree view of anyone
    trying to come up here literally they come from here there we’ll be able to
    see them I will definitely need viewing windows
    to keep an eye out these trackers come up here we’ll be ready and we can store
    down the large so they can’t get up maybe if you go back for our supplies we
    could build a box for it you’re right we still the cedars and the sea-doos it’s
    like a 30-minute trip we’ll do it Logan this is it Logan this is gonna be on
    your house yes we have an awesome house back at home but we can make this work
    we can live here I don’t know how long we’re gonna have to live here and stay
    low but we can I mean we can film over there we can film over here this this
    could be where you at it Logan Kate no Jake I am not living here Dave Morgan we
    don’t have another choice okay until we figure out this until we can figure out
    who these guys are and put a stop to them we’re gonna have to stay here look
    I’m gonna head back on the c2 I’m gonna grab all of our supplies you start
    cleaning this place out then we’ll build a box for you here just secure it down
    and make it livable for the night the sun’s going down and I don’t know if the
    rains gonna let up anytime soon okay if I don’t make it back I want you to have
    my Easy’s I want you to have my entire Yeezy collection Logan
    kekeke relax you’re gonna make it back fine but it’s a safe stay low and don’t
    make a lot of noise I’ll be back with the supplies chilling up here in my
    awesome tree for it well Jake’s gone I’m gonna have to figure out a way to dry
    all my stuff all right now that we got the poncho hanging up should drive
    pretty fast so I’m still waiting for Jake and I realize I have some rope in
    my pocket so I thought while I’m waiting for Jake I’ll make a pulley system so we
    can get our stuff up much easier guys I hear something
    oh yeah okay hey you’re back I made it back and I got all of her stuff all
    right guys we are officially ready to start turning this place and your
    treehouse box for it we’ve got all of our gear here our cardboard a fishing
    rod in case we want to try and catch some more food and I think our first
    objective is to turn this place into a livable hideout we need to get cardboard
    down on the floor seal up the walls and make sure it’s insulated not only from
    the water but also in terms of the heat cuz it is getting cold out here we also
    have some lighting in here and we’re low on food but a little bit of food he
    can’t go around I made a pulley a pulley system let’s see if this works guys oh
    dude you got it already we’re turning this into our home base good job to you
    all right I’ll get the rest of the supplies and get it up there and then we
    can start building this thing all right well let’s start getting this thing
    ready we are currently up inside the treehouse got a nice view outside I love
    your pulley system definitely gonna have to try out that pole dude that is a cool
    pool it’s actually a great fast escape pool guys if we need to get out of here
    quickly all right well let’s start building this
    thing dude we are now inside the box fort inside a
    treehouse and this place is actually looking pretty sweet as our shelter
    obviously we’re setting up camp here and like I said I don’t know how long we’re
    gonna be here we can definitely make expansions this place but the number one
    thing we wanted to do right off the bat was make sure we had a place to sleep
    tonight so you’re probably wondering why are we doing this kind of like a unique
    concept here well the main reason in fact is the bugs there is no way we are
    boarding up all of these holes and clearing up all of this and from our
    stay in the box word on the lake we know the bugs are probably one of our biggest
    enemies at night aside from the people chasing us so what we’re actually gonna
    do is we’re gonna make a nice cozy place here that is nice and clean and dry and
    you know not like moldy wood and then we’re gonna cover this with a bug net so
    we have the entire roof covered but we’ll still be able to get up and look
    out the windows so we can see if someone’s coming and make sure that we
    can secure the entire area we also have a bunch of stuff in our survival case
    here that we’re gonna be using to spruce up this place and make it eat true home
    for us so let’s get this bug net on and start making this into a home for the
    night nose but I’m perfectly safe from bugs there’s absolutely none in here
    alright guys so we’re currently laying out all our gear and making it super
    homey for the night and so far it’s looking awesome dude this is sweet but I
    am also starving from that see you chase and this hike we got to make dinner soon
    and guys check it out it is beautiful outside the Sun setting now and it’s
    really nice anything we need to get done before nightfall we got to do it now I
    went ahead and changed this into a luxury hideout guys but it doesn’t
    looking amazing it’s in here I’m gonna show that off guys but before we do that
    in before we make dinner it is starting to get extremely dark I wanted to head
    out because one thing that I noticed is we are running out of water and fast we
    need to save some of the water for dinner which is why Logan I thought I’d
    try this little device out what’s that it’s a live straw dude this means that
    it will filtrate water so I can actually drink the lake water normally you cannot
    drink lake water but with a life straw you can so we’re gonna head down there
    and try on the lake and I thought looking I
    would get down using our built-in fire pole check it out uh all right well I’ll
    go down and then you come down behind me sure thing
    okay all right well if we need to get down quickly we have to test the soda
    make sure it works oh oh here we go okay not too bad oh that’s definitely a fast
    way to get down will faster than I hope for peg guys let’s head down to the
    water and use his life straw then we can head back for dinner there’s the tree
    house up there nice and hidden away definitely whoever’s chasing us won’t be
    able to find us there actually while I was getting down here I kind of cut up
    my hand a little bit I actually grabbed it under this which is well a very
    thorny stick of some sort so it definitely didn’t have to use a
    first-aid kit because when you’re surviving in the wilderness even the
    smallest cuts can turn into something big all right well here’s the and here
    goes nothing all right guys it’s time to drink up some very disgusting lake water
    and I know what you’re thinking you would probably never do this at home I
    mean you can come below if you think you would but uh hopefully this little
    device is gonna save me and make this water super tasty whoo okay got myself a
    nice refreshing taste of lake water actually cool tastes a little fishy but
    I’m gonna trust that the live show worked and I’m okay to drink that so
    tasted clean and was pretty refreshing so let’s head back to the base and see
    how Logan’s doing Jake just got back and he hurt his hand cut it on a bit of a
    thorn bush there but as I was explaining to everyone you know the smallest cuts
    when you’re surviving in the woods can turn into big things so definitely
    wanted to make sure I got this thing cleaned up fast while you were gone I
    was looking at the map and trying to see if I could find any other clues did you
    find anything I’ve still been looking at that password and try figure out what
    that means one of the things I realized I think si s and LS then for Carter
    share and Lizzie share were you write CSL s car share Liz’s share I mean if
    he’s already targeting Stephen chair then that would make sense but still
    don’t know who ma r is guys I think we found a key card or something I’m not
    really sure what this looks like you can used to get into something or maybe some
    sort of notes I I don’t really know guess if you have any idea what this
    could be let us know down below if you can analyze it and give us some tips you
    guys have already been so huge and helping us figure out this mystery this
    will just be one more step in solving this you’re able to warn Chad wild clay
    about the bus which is good but I haven’t had much contact with anyone
    given that we’ve turned our phones off I don’t know what’s going on on their side
    of the series other than that there is something listed here as an attack drone
    but we haven’t seen them use anything like that so far we’ve had strange
    people show up at our house someone who was broadcasting on a walkie-talkie
    signal that we heard traced us to the shoreline and was there trying to find
    us when we were floating on the lake and we had that crazy ski to chase earlier
    today and the guy was wearing a mask which totally contradicts any theory
    that it’s a cop but then what could it be
    spy hacker and I mean if he’s targeting everyone here it could be who’s in that
    one else’s videos I mean everyone’s going around trying to figure out who’s
    chasing them Chad thinks it’s a hacker others think it’s a spy it could all be
    related to one centralized organization one organization trying to take out
    youtubers we need to figure out who they are and fast but I think the most
    important thing right now Logan is that Papa Jake eat some food that’s probably
    number one first so let’s let’s see what’s on the menu for tonight look we
    got cheese tortellini or chili with beans ooh cheese tortellini alright
    there you go inside my MRE I got a chocolate chip pop-tart oh yeah you’re a
    lucky man looks like I got my Chilean beans over here Logan gonna enjoy this
    cheers buddy Hughes man you can do in our box for it hey I got I got the camera I got the
    camera guys I think this I’m just somebody sign Shh hold on what’s he
    saying they’re staying they’re staying there oh my god hold on hold on there’s
    something else I write out there’s something outside something with a light
    hold on I’m try to get closer who’s that oh no oh no oh no Logan Logan it’s a
    drone this is your own it’s a drone off of the window just join us out the
    window get down get down turn off the lights turn off the lights get ee sauce
    it definitely saw it he was a drone man it was a drone probably part of the
    trackers babies he’d use they have drones did you see us I don’t know I
    don’t know probably you did probably the whole thing’s lit up it’s only a matter
    of time before they get here we’re sitting ducks in there Logan Jake what
    is that this was a siren of some sort this is our going out there’s a siren
    going off in the woods Logan I think they’re coming they’re coming for us
