    Very inspirational - thank-you for sharing. I always enjoy your campouts.
    P.S. I wimped out at +25F last night and I'm just in my mid 60's. I'm impressed for your 'not too bad' at -9F. I don't get cold, but I don't like breathing cold air while I sleep. Any hints?

    I know, he makes me feel a bit wimpy myself, with all my excuses for not getting out.

    I don't know as much about it as Carver would, but have you tried the HHSS Over Cover, with a frost bib to help keep the condensation from breathing under control? It will help with that cold air you have to breath, at least a bit, without having something right over your face. But are there respirators that warm the breathed air?

    Mr. Carver, I nominate you as the World’s Coolest Grandpa! You totally rock the winter camp, and your video skills are on point!
    Thank you for sharing your adventure. Enjoy the season-

    Thumbs up winter soldier!

    Hard to believe Dachsteins are $70! I've had mine for decades and they certainly were not that much....back in the day ;-) Cool idea for a cooking shelf for winter. I wouldn't want to pack one in the summer, but it would go great on the bottom of a pulk, no problem. I prefer to cross my pulk poles, but perhaps that is more of a ski deal vs snow shoe arrangement. DIY Caldera look nice. I've become an instant coffee person when I'm out and about to save on the fiddle factor and gear.

    Ha, I have a long term senior moment (or winter). I didn't use my overcover for the last 3 years and I just forgot about it. That works.

    I like seeing all the positive and complimentary comments on this post. Carver is/has been an inspiration to us all.

    Yessir! That made my day, and I agree with all that's been said! Well done, Carver, in all respects. I love learning by watching folks like you. Thanks for taking us along, and keep on making tracks...especially on those beautiful snowshoes!
