Winter Camping

Hello and welcome to my first post.Today i want to blog about winter camping.I have heard that it is becoming more popular today than a few years ago.

I have been a camper for about 20 years now and i have never once been camping in the winter months.Most people in America go threw some pretty bad winters.

I’m located in a small southern town in Missouri called Potosi it’s part of the ozarks.During the winter months i don’t see any people camping anywhere.

In the spring time campers are booming around here by the thousands.When the winter months come around everyone vanishes until the warm seasons arrive.

The last time of the year i see campers out is during the late fall when whitetail deer hunting season rolls around.That is the last time i see tent campers out until spring.However i do still see rv’s out and about.

Someday i may just get the nerve and try winter camping out for myself.I guess i would build a big campfire and stack plenty of wood for the long and cold nights.

What about the snow but i must say it would be a beautiful picture sitting next to a warm campfire while it was snowing.It could also be a problem if to much snow fell.I think i’d bring a snow shovel just in case i had to dig out.

Let me know all of your winter camping stories.I would love to hear how you survived.I would also like to know what kinds of camping gear was used during these winter camping adventures.

    Hi, Ed.

    It’s funny you should mention it because my husband, Conny, our dog Aero and I are planning a weekend hiking camping trip as we speak. We’re deciding what equipment we will bring and we’re treating ourselves to some new stuff. We live in Vancouver, BC (Canada) and the mountains all around us have just had their first dump of snow. I’m taking an ecommerce course and have just started to be an affiliate marketer so I’m writing all about this on my website. If you want to check it out it’s at http://www.campingandequipment.com. I don’t mean this as a commercial. I just thought you might want to share in our search for snow camping equipment.

    Take care and Happy Holidays.

    Hi, Ed.

    Thanks for the tip. It’s a great site. Conny and I have had to postpone our winter camping trip because the mountains around here have had such a dump of snow that they are all on high alert for avalanches. It’s the most snow we’ve had in Vancouver since 1971. I hope you and yours had a fabulous holiday season. Happy New Year.
