  • [music playing]

  • Oh, dammit, slipped chain.

  • [exhales] I hate these.

  • Small limbs like that, it happens with chain saws.

  • I got to fix this up.

  • The fun ain't over yet.

  • [engine revving]

  • OK.

  • I got my poles.

  • Time to get to work.

  • What I want to do is get this bark off.

  • Then I'm going to make a point and drive it in the ground.

  • One of the benefits of living in the woods,

  • you got to be creative.

  • If you're not creative, you're going to struggle.

  • [banging]

  • Try to use a little bit of caveman knowledge

  • to make things a little more comfortable.

  • I'm able to survive out here.

  • But I want to thrive out here, too.

  • OK.

  • Bench is done.

  • Woo, hoo, hoo!

  • You guys want to check it out and have some hot choc?

  • KIDS: Yeah.

  • SON: That's cooler than I expected.

  • RICK DEWILDE: It's awesome, huh?

  • SON: Yeah.

  • We got our rocks.

  • We got our cottonwood.

  • We got our bench, nice backrest.

  • You see how this thing is?

  • Look.

  • See how it just smolders?

  • Before Western society came, before there was matches,

  • and lighters, and stuff, this is how back in the day people

  • carried their spark.

  • Because believe me, no matter how good

  • you are at making a fire, you wouldn't be

  • able to make one at 50 below.

  • And without this spark, without this birch punk

  • right here, easily we could not be here today.

  • We'd be wiped out, extinct in this area of the Earth.

  • Whatever created us and created the earth

  • made it possible with tools like this growing

  • right on the trees.

  • So that's good to think about, you know.

  • I know what was my favorite part of the day.

  • What?

  • This.

  • This is your favorite part.

  • Good one.

  • Now that these gnats are gone, we got the perfect spot.
