  • breaking trail with the goal here is if we break  trail from the top of the house the main entrance  

  • if we can get it down to the basement maybe we  can lure the dog down here because he's too scared  

  • to walk down the steps so yeah that's the plan  so the funny thing about togo you guys some of  

  • you may know this already if you've been watching  the videos for a while but he is afraid of stairs  

  • going downstairs yeah um so yeah we've been  trying to lure him down to the basement because  

  • that's where we have like this beautiful like  wood-burning stove and it's so cozy and he refuses  

  • to walk down and for instance he's never been  to the basement and your in your parents house  

  • never he's missing out he comes down he looks  down he's like there's a whole there's a whole  

  • world under there just don't have the courage to  waddle down i know i feel so bad for him yeah but  

  • yeah this is a room it's where we're staying  the snow actually was even higher yesterday

  • looks like we've just got sunny days the rest of  the time yeah so pretty lucky gonna go snowshoeing  

  • okay so we're getting ready for our  little morning adventure and look at this  

  • so it snowed so much that our host explained  that they weren't able to groom the trails  

  • because the amount of snow was just astronomic  and instead she left us two brand new pairs  

  • of snowshoes look at those which is amazing  like no wonder this lady is a super host  

  • she thought of every super need we'd have  yeah including the desire to snowshoe after the crazy snowstorm  

  • yeah and break your own trail yeah because like  my sister owns snowshoes but because she lives  

  • like an hour away we just didn't have enough  time to hey gucci i know it's exciting so hyper

  • these are really cool ones because they're  all size fits or they're one size fits all  

  • yeah they have an adjustable back so yeah  we're gonna be breaking them in two pairs  

  • so excited for that and we we saw like  deer footprints and like a deer trail  

  • like the snow is this deep right now but  we can see that a dior is out there so  

  • maybe we'll we'll encounter some wildlife  this morning who knows oh that'd be awesome
