    What he said....I started with a Jet Sled Jr, then built a toboggan and now have to use a caboose because I have too much crap, including hot tent, stove, chainsaw, coffee pot, cast iron fry pan...the list goes on.

    Pulling it is easy peasy with just a strap around my shoulder. Now, if the snow melts and the ground is showing, that's a whole different story...

    This is probably the reason you feel the cold in Az. In Denver we got over a foot in less than 24hrs044.jpg

    Since I started hanging about 5 years ago now, I've yet to have a chance to try it in the snow! I've either always been busy or we just didn't get enough snow. I think I jinxed myself when I bought my Muk Luks and Old Man Winter specifically for hanging in the snow lol. However, if the long range winter forecast ( or "guess" as I like to call it) stays even remotely close to true then I might FINALLY get the chance. So far the well below average temps that were predicted for fall in my area have been spot on. It's felt like early winter every night since about mid October with a few nights even getting into the low 20's. I've been dying to hang in the snow!

    That's why wheels were invented
    In order to see what few have seen, you must go where few have gone. And DO what few have done.

    I was excited for this weekend when the temps were in single digits. Then...

    A chance of snow showers before 1pm, then rain and snow showers likely. Cloudy, with a high near 36. Chance of precipitation is 70%.

    And of course, back down to cold the day I leave. How did I manage hit the only 2-3 days window of warmth. So unfair!!

    Hey, thanks for the kind words, ODG! I'm just seeing this for some reason. I guess it is true that I have had a more than average number of wild back country and snow adventures. Getting a little long in the tooth now(71 in a month), and the majority of my wildest adventures were between age 34(when I moved to Flagstaff and got into some serious wilderness travel) and a few years later when I spent 30 days straight hiking, climbing and sleeping within the wilderness areas of the Wind River Mountains of WY. I will never forget the river crossing by Tyrolean traverse during a major June 27th snow storm! That night at 24F was the single coldest night of my life. Then again, major snow and dead mosquitoes almost in July, how could I complain? My adventures since those crazy days have been shorter in duration and mostly less severe, though I still love those high Rocky Mountains for occasional winter during summer.

    But, way down here in MS, we had snow yesterday, a couple of inches, already gone though. But it was a delight hiking in it. Not much stuck because the ground was so warm, but it was coming down heavily all day!
