    wool is your friend...... skip trying all the fancy high tech stuff and spend your dollars on good wool I camp without a tent a lot because I enjoy seeing the stars and I rarely ever find myself miserable. I, personally am not a fan of miserable, never have been.

    I've seen many online winter camp with a good fire, wool blankets on a camp pad and leaned tarp to block the wind. Those are my camp goals.

    Winter camping is dangerous.

    Eh, Rick, we've all had our moments.

    True enough, my final home is still out there, but this is most certainly my home range and I love it. I love every rock I fall off and tree I trip over. Even when I am close to dying from exhaustion, a beautiful sunset doesn't lose it's power to refresh and inspire me and that, in itself, is enough to save me sometimes.

    I'd settle for just a moment instead of weeks and months.

    Winter camping is dangerous; moreover, it is more expensive. We have a family tradition, once every 2 months my wife and I go camping. It's really awesome. My wife taught me how to cook fish on the fire. I also showed her how to fish correctly. She is a quick learner and was able to catch some big fish. Recently, I decided to buy a new tent for camping. I spent a lot of time looking for the best tent. Forum users have recommended me 3 models. OF COURSE I CHOSE SPAM. OH, YEAH. SPAM IS THE BESTESTES.

    Gee what a surprise that somebody that posted about the dangers of camping came back and spammed the site.

    I was thinking pretty face, beautiful rotund body, intelligent mind. But, no, just spam. Makes me almost want to cry. Almost. Oh, look, butterflies.

    I am glad to see my thread still alive!!

    This cheap 30 degree Ozark bag has been amazing.
    Easy to pack, light, comfortable. I've gone on many trips with it now in the Appalachian mountains, even in winter.

    I do get cold toes on bad nights. I've gone down to 10 degrees in this thing multiple times.
    My trick? Two 10hour hand warmers stuffed in my socks when I wake up cold. Puts me out with the sweetest dreams.
