Welcome Niagra.  Youtube-y is a new adjective to me but I do like it.  Winter camping provides a special, rare silence and peace.  Hope it's what you are looking for.  Dig in and ask away.

General Winter Camping Discussion / Introduction - Hello.
« Last post by Niagara on Today at 07:52:14 PM »
Hello.
Have always loved fall camping (canoeing, hiking) and have started to explore winter camping a couple years ago with some hammock campers.
Still investing in some winter gear slow but sure (buy once cry once) so I tend to have to wait between purchasing items.
Attended the Winter Camping Symposium a few weeks back, met Mr Hoop, and a few other youtube-y folks. Really looking forward to learning and getting out to find some peace. Looking forward to digging through the forums.

Despite the added extra high cost I may apply for an extended visa rather than the 90 day electronic one. Just in case family ask me to stay a bit longer. My savings account isn't growing any larger either and I need to make an effort to increase my balance before I fly over, my pension income won't go far in the USA and even less so in Canada and Alaska. Buying a van is going to take a bit more than I would pay here, old vans are no longer cheap in America I am told

Misread title... Thought "That pack is pretty small to carry a firearm for hunting... Maybe the 14" Canuck 12-Ga? Maybe for grouse?"

Kept waiting... ahhhhhhh you are not hunting FROM a campsite, you're hunting FOR a campsite. My mind is still clearly in deer season.

Great video, look forward to the next!

Looks like late October / early November 2020 is when I'll arrive in New York and seeing Family won't take more than a day or two

Got your priorities in order I see!  I really do hope North America lives up to your expectations Moondog and good for you on chasing your goals.

Winter Camping Clothing / Mucky Mocs on Etsy

Although I'm fairly handy with a sewing machine I am just useless at hand sewing so when  I realised that I needed a new larger pair of mukluks making my own wasn't an option.

Searched around a bit on the internet and came across these guys.

https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/MuckyMocs

Based on Manitoulin Island

Lana was very helpful, asked lots of questions, I sent her my liners and she came up with a pair of really comfy muks with lots of room for extra pairs of socks and room to wriggle my toes.

If your looking for a pair for this winter certainly worth considering.
