Another Shug follower, reporting in. I'm fortunate enough to live in Sector 7 but have not yet had the honor of meeting him on the trail.
I used to hate winter. Truly hate it. Then I moved to Minnesota. Among the other winter-loving people I've met here, Shug is the foremost. I NEVER would have dreamed of something so insane as winter camping, but now I'm longing to hang in the frosty piney woods. I'm wishing for an underquilt, but Shug reassured me in the noob videos that a pad would do me just fine, and that's what I'm gonna use. I now have much more confidence to just get out there and use what I have.
