‘Winter camping has the potential to be the worst experience of your life.’ Or the best! Watch this homage to camping in the coldest season of the year.
From Heliconia Productions comes a heartfelt look at toughing it out during winter. Eric Hanson tells us why camping during winter is such a rewarding experience.
“Everything requires more work,” writes Hanson in a blog post. “Setting up camp can require hours of digging snow pits and stomping tent platforms. Finding firewood and dry fuel can be tricky, as it’s often buried under several feet of snow. Drinking water is usually frozen. Cooking a meal and eating food is a serious chore, and your body is burning through calories like a speeding locomotive.”
Despite the tough conditions, Hanson and GearJunkie think winter camping is almost always worth the effort. Give it a try!
