    New Brunswick Winter camping

    Any NB winter campers on the forum?

    The recent snow got me pretty excited about future snowshoeing / hammock camping trips

    I'm not in NB but I can tell you that I camp year round in Ontario. There is no vacation from camping, camping IS my vacation!

    Right on. What's your lowest temp so far? I've only hammock camped as low as possibly -6, still working on some bottom insulation strategies

    -21c is my lowest.

    I started out using a -12 sleeping bag and thermarest (and 1 hammock) but over the last 3 years have progressed and spent the dollars on gear. It's been expensive but I don't regret any of my purchases.

    I now have 2 goose down UQs. One bridge hammock and one gathered end. I also have a goose down TQ. The gathered end UQ and my TQ are DIY from Costco quilts.

    I'm really fortunate in that there's a group of guys and girls here that meet regularly so we get to learn, test gear and sell stuff at least every 3 months. One of the "pre-winter" meet ups in January is at a campground with heated washrooms nearby so if you're testing - your worst case scenario is not so bad.

    There was an Eastern Great Lakes hang for Hammock Forums 2 weeks ago. It set a record for a few of us... -25c. Three packed up and did not do the Saturday night. The first night was enough!
