Introduction - Hello.
« on: December 09, 2018, 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.

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.

welcome.

Lots of trip reports to entertain you,
Lots of DIY posts that photobucket has not completely destroyed,
& lots of warm wonderful woolly and somewhat weird folk here. (is that WCS unofficial tag line? or was it wool, woodsmoke and weirdo's?) yeah that's it.

anyway - dive in, have fun, we will help you spend your kids college fund.

Welcome to enjoying winter outdoors
Hammock Hot Tenting is my winter fun.
Are you planning to utilize the Hammock as your choice for winter camping?

so far, it is. Have a Clark with the full cover so I have so far been ok but still fairly new to me, so have not had the opportunity to run through a full swing of temps, and do not have a full winter UQ set up as of yet.
So far my 'winter' camping has been local car camping sites with the a group. One gent does have a hot tent / hammock set up that he loves.
