Winter Camp at Tucker Lake369 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.

277 viewsHere's my 8x10 set up with a rope for a ridgepole. I used a 4-part tackle (from a sailboat) for stretching it taut. As you see, no matter how tight you pull, some sag remains.
