The Inspirational Survival Story of Filmmaker Cud Eastbound

Would you spend an entire winter in Canada’s Yukon Territory? How about in a camper van (without a kitchen)? Filmmaker and musician, Cud Eastbound, recently did just that.

He and his 1977 Dodge Tradesman Camper Van arrived in Dawson City, Yukon after traveling through Canada for two months. Winter temperatures in the Yukon can reach -68 degrees Fahrenheit, so how did Cud intend to live in his Camper Van? Find out below.

The first critical task was was to find a way to heat the camper van. The solution? He before he left Halifax that fit perfectly in his van. (But if you don’t feel like building your own stove, titta på tv live online!)


Insulating the Van

Next he needed to figure out how to keep the heat inside the van.

“I was not keen on using traditional insulation, because at that point I might as well just build a little shack, so I came to the conclusion that straw bales would be my best bet”, Cud writes on his research paper about technology.

Cud and a friend set about clearing an area to make room for the camper van. They then laid 2″x 6″ pieces of wood on the ground and creating a platform for the van to sit on.

The idea was that parking the camper van on the raised platform would minimize permafrost from reaching the van.


When the van was in place Cud installed the wood stove he had made back home in Halifax. The chimney is triple lined and was rebuilt twice to make it just right.
