Lake Shasta National Forest Beautiful Boondocking

Lake Shasta National Forest Beautiful Boondocking


absolutely stunningly beautiful out here
I’m at the Salt Creek Campground also connects part with Shasta Lake Lake
Shasta here in California I’ll put a map up here to give you an idea for where
I’m at and relative to Californian and maybe the rest of the country and stuff
like that right I have been in that water three times since I’ve been here
and I don’t know how it is that’s the warmest body of water I’ve ever been in
in any place in the entire country in six years on YouTube that water is
physically warm like it’s heated what oh that LMS also mentioned it’s a
hundred and three degrees today here in California at 3,500 feet yeah and I’ve
been here before I was here exactly a year and a half ago eighteen months ago
I brought Yoda to this very spot and it snowed on us and they closed down the
Siskiyou pass I couldn’t get back home I was stranded here in the snow and now a
hundred and three degrees heat wave they’re calling it an excessive heat
heat way it’s a heat wave for this area this time of year it doesn’t usually
stay this hot this late so it is a little unusual I’m glad I’m
here I’m glad I can dunk in that water whenever I want get on the inner tube I
do have to run the air conditioner for Jack’s because I can’t have an
uncomfortable Kitty in there can’t do that and I’ve had this little spot all
to myself this is just gorgeous area of California
it’s $11 a night to stay here April 15th to September 15th
after September 15th it’s free to stay here the reason they do that is because
I guess they provide a trash can and a port-a-potty on season up there so
you’re paying for that it’s just flippin gorgeous and I also
you may have noticed or maybe you didn’t notice but this bridge is kind of famous
I’m 99% sure this is the same shot from the intro of the Netflix show murder
Mountain here which is filmed here in California
there are a lot that are shaped exactly alike I guess but just the terrain and
the way it all curves and everything I’m pretty sure this is exactly where that
intro was film that’s a really good mini-series on netflix by the way it’s a
pretty good little miniseries I enjoyed it they are saying it’s gonna stay this
warm for a couple more days so it may stay out here a couple days not quite
sure I have the whole place to myself so maybe that’s the that’s the part I
really like it’s just it’s peaceful and it’s pretty for California this is
pretty nice for California see this could be us Jax but you don’t like
motorcycles or wind or engines or water like you’d never go for this huh look
you could be king up here yeah see let me jeez ride like this and that’d be fun
let’s get a little seat belt okay I’ll start it up kay ready he really doesn’t
like it the bicycle yeah motorcycle not so much and the water no
definitely no water but the water no doesn’t know all right man so what do
you like tables treats food catnaps everything you’re a man all right man
yeah right be a wrong either cause that water is so warm oh man go deeper here
oh you got a be good have you guys ever seen this tattoo don’t have I’ve ever
been shirtless before yeah I’ve got three Simpsons tattoos total three
Simpsons tattoos this was like Jesus 13 14 years ago actually I still love the
Simpsons I stopped getting Simpsons tattoos I got my beavis and butthead on
my back Cavs but now I kind of gave up putting Simpsons ink on me oh man now
water whoa Shasta Lake yeah oh oh hell sucked
in my pocket but it was my phone it’s a cult well it’s a it’s a warm beer now
cheers guys oh it’s delicious you wouldn’t like it you know what I think
I’m most excited about for the end of 2019 though really is the idea of
chasing the good weather so that I can continue this summer with good weather
solar you know for the RV I need it you know to be able to power everything in
the RV and really just I mean here in California it is much much much hotter
by 30 degrees than it was all summer in Washington State and now that all the
kids are going back to school everything’s just kind of wide open you
know it’s pretty awesome it’s pretty awesome I don’t mean to brag
in a way that makes you feel uncomfortable or anything because I’m
still gonna share with you just pretend like you’re right here with me right
right we’re just sitting here in the river in the lake having a beer together there are a couple really good dispersed
campsites here at Salt Creek this one’s really good there there was a clearance
issue that’s why I couldn’t get over this little hump that little dip right
there I wouldn’t have made it but some other higher vehicles may make it and
then once you get out here you have your own little private island jetty out to
the water over here and there’s my RV across the way over there but I will
certainly miss this place and I’m gonna put something over here those are GPS
coordinates guys so you can grab those write them down and pause it or they’ll
be in the video description also you can copy and paste that put it into your
navigation a choice like Google Maps or ways or whatever and you can come here
and experience this place as well because I want to share it with you it’s
an approved campground don’t abuse the rules and everything and oh wow
there’s people showing up behind me I was gonna say this place is really quiet
and I’ve had it to myself the entire time and as I’m getting ready to leave
some people are coming out to use the boat out here so they’ve got a bunch of
place if you can take your boat and whiz around here but there is a no-wake zone
here in front of Salt Creek Campground so it was um I really really like this
place and I’m running the generator over there for air conditioning and to
recharge the batteries in this situation right now I got a fire it up twice I can
run the air conditioner off solar for five hours to start the day and then I
got to run the generator for about two or three hours to replenish the
batteries and then we’ll finish the night with again going off a solar with
with the AC and then I got a top them off before I go to bed that’s the case
right now in the main case the main reason why that is is because I just
don’t have enough amp hours of storage I have 300 amp hours of lithium storage
and twelve hundred and eighty watts and I find myself needing some more amp
hours and that’ll be here your number one hint to what some of my plans here
are very very soon gonna gonna have to change that just gonna have to you
I don’t like having to run that generator it’s obnoxious you know it’s
funny also I was not gonna film out here this is gonna be my two-day little
vacation with no camera and I just cannot help but I’m such a creative
person I don’t just want to sit around it’s like I’m always looking for a way
to capture something and sitting around here and enjoying the water I just saw a
chance to share it with you anyway so I did now I gotta edit it all or that
means I got to work take care guys Jackson I’ll see you in a few days back
on the road in California bye guys okay why is it just warm right
here where I’m at that ain’t right that ain’t right you know they put a chemical
in the pool that turns your in blue no no no it’s an old wives tale sweetie no
