Winter camping essentials?
« on: February 06, 2013, 04:39:25 PM »

You guys got any favorite meals or little items that aren't necessary but make a winter camping experience a little more luxurious? For me, five dice and a little notepad is the coolest thing I've ever seen anyone bring.  That extra five or six ounces made the week 100 times better.

I just don't want to explain that credit card bill.

I've spent enough months sitting on glaciers to finally learn. Favorite meal is Annie's Mac & Cheese with slices of summer sausage, and M&Ms for dessert. Quick, easy (sub water for milk), and great. I go big with spin-fried pizza on the stove if it's a long trip in AK. Bringing a coffee cone (with filters) and real coffee is infinitely better each morning than instant coffee, unless you're only out for a night or three.

For gear, the extra weight of light puff pants and down booties can be worth it on a longer trip. A pyramid tent (even a small "3-man" one) is great for long trips on glaciers/snowfields for use as a cook tent with the floor dug out for seating and standing. A little sit pad, earplugs, and a paperback make the long nights much more bearable.

... and some cognac.

So other than Kate Upton...the motel room renders all that shite moot see? Pay cash for the room and live it up!
