Winter Camping Clothing / Re: Wool pants question
« Last post by Wilderwes on October 19, 2018, 05:04:59 PM »
I just got a pair of the Big Bill wool pants in the blend last Christmas (24 oz). I feel like the blend adds a bit more durability than a 100% wool pant, but I could be mistaken. I also recommend sizing up. I got size 32, but there's not a lot of space for me to grow - especially with long johns. On the plus-side I have motivation to not gain weight so I can keep wearing them year after year.

Ha, lovely to see some new blood having fun. Yes, it's hard work some times but so worth it as you pointed out in your videos.
Everyone learns differently and I could tell you had done some home work. In learning from reading or videos, it takes having the experience to understand what you are learning. Go back now and review what you studied before and see it you don't spot the writing between the lines.
I haven't seen any advice on packing the weight low in the pulk. It really makes a big difference if all the heavy stuff is on the bottom and the light stuff on top. I did see advice of using two sleds and if you can afford it, that would make the tipping problem go away.
As all have said, the attitude... nice. You'll keep learning and enjoying it more every time.
I enjoyed the videos and the thread here. A bit heart warming.

Given the recent changes in the law in Canada poisoning may be the correct word. Although edibles are not yet legal up here I'm sure that quite a few batches of "special" brownies are already being baked.

Santa Claus is going to have a VERY good Christamas in Canada I think

Here's a short video review (in Russian)
by the same guy that built dug out shelter some of you may have seen on the net
judging by the squeaking snow, it's pretty cold  :)
He likes them for walking down to -30 C

Not a half zip tho, three quarter length really. I would have preferred a short centre zip but there isn't much choice here
