Winter Camp at Tucker Lake376 viewsWhile camping in the Forest at Tucker Lake, the lowest temperature recorded was -48 degrees. Throw water up in the air and it froze before hitting the snow.
The fishing was good. The food and company was great.
Traditional handmade snowshoes and toboggans were used for snow travel.

my pyramid tent last winter306 viewsUsed "deadmen" to hold the guylines as my steel spikes wouldn't drive into the heavily iced ground. Changed my bazooko stove chimney to 4 inch as the size and weight of 5 inch was way too much.
