I've had my Siberian Husky since she was 5 weeks old. Having lived in Florida all her life (she is almost 11 years old), she has never seen snow. However, with the arrival of my Bronco and the Christmas holidays, all that changed. I'm terrible at editing, but I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.





Updated with photos and some equipment info:

I've got a few questions for you when you have the time- In your photos 1) What roof top carrier do you have?, 2) What tent/tarp are you using? 3) what floor mats are you using? 4) how do you keep the tarp secured to the bronco without flying off? thank you!
Hi,

My roof top bag cost me $13 on Amazon around Black Friday! I absolutely love it. It kept everything dry and has the lowest profile of all these available soft bags at only 13 inches I believe. Perfect for camping gear. Here is the link.

My tent is a Napier Backroadz SUV tent. There are a couple of different versions online. The tent has a few elastic straps that connect to various points on the car to keep it secure. These suction cups also help a lot.

The tarp under the tent is a standard 10x10 Walmart tarp. The tent also came with a rain fly.

My car floor mats are TuxMats. You can find them here.

Looks like a great trip. Happy for you and your dog.

How do you like that tent? I've thought about getting one, but wasn't sure how much room the swing gate would take up in there. Looks like you have plenty of room tho.

Thank you.

There are 2 major issues when you combine that tent with the Bronco.

1) The rear of the car needs to be elevated by at least 4-5 inches to stop water from coming into the tent. I put my running boards under the rear tires after it started raining and that helped a little, but I needed more. For our next trip, I cut a couple of pieces of 2x8 to gain a couple more inches on top of the traction boards.

2) The tent only has one door, and it happens to be where the tailgate is. Instead of centering the tent around the car, I pulled it more toward the tailgate. That way, I could open the tent door, get in and stand between the tailgate and tent door, close the tent door, then maneuver around the tailgate to get in the middle! It's not ideal, but it was the easiest way to manage.

And here are a few minor tips:

1) If you are planning to use the back seat like I had my dog in there, you need some sort of suction cup to tie the tent to. If you don't use the back doors, it can be tied to the door handles. If you do use it, I got these off Amazon:

2) If you don't have a roof rack, get some bungee cords and a few of these to attach to the front of the car and secure to the tent.

3) And lastly, to stop water from coming in during the storm, jammed a towel between the tailgate and the car.

My mistake was not doing any of this when I initially set up. By the time I made the little changes, there was already water in my tent. Live and learn!

I hope this helps.

My friend in Maine had a husky and she was so damn happy outside in the snow. It was fun to watch.

My mom's poodles meanwhile, we had to shovel out paths with multiple poop and pee stops in the backyard, but their ground clearance isn't really off-road capable so you can't judge.

Dig it!

I live in a northern climate so we get snow and ice every year. But Iโ€™ll always regret not having the camera rolling the first year my Pug was introduced to ice.

I have a pretty steep driveway and it tends to get pretty icy in the winter. Being less than a year old at the time she was like any puppy - only two speeds: Sleeping. And running.

First time she ran full speed out the garage and hit that icy driveway was priceless. Slipped and slid on her butt the whole way down and did about two 360โ€™s. Never forget the look on her face. You think Pugs have bulging eyes normally? :D :D :D

Anyways - thanks for sharing. Loved the video!
