    ViDEO: Winter Shakedown Solo 2 Nighter...Northern Minnesota

    Spur of the moment trip. Saw there was going to be some snow and bitter cold so packed up my ULA Catalyst, grabbed the snowshoes and headed up North.
    Was really windy out there and that added quite the chill to already cold temps. Got down to -5F.
    Had a real good pitch with my Warbonnet Superfly tarp with the aid of some snow walls to keep the wind and spindrift out. Nary a breeze hit me under the tarp though I could hear it blowing all around me.
    Slept ever so warm with my Loco Libre Habanaro -10 UQ. Never felt a chill.
    Loved being tucked into my JRB High Sierra Sniveler TQ. Love that thing.
    Snoozed 12 hours in the Warbonnet Eldorado as it gets dark at 4:15 PM so hit the hammock early. EARLY!!!
    Not light until around 7AM. Long comfy nights. I dreamt of cake.

    Tried out the new Warbonnet Bad Weather Bonnet Down Hood. WOW. I liked it so much more than I thought I would and wore it a lot. For sleeping it was amazing but getting up in the AM and stepping out into that wind, I ducked back in to my tarp and grabbed it to wear around camp. Really kept all that wind off of my neck. A muffled silence whilst wearing it.

    Not too long of a walk in as it was a fair lollygag of a trip and being solo just did not want to break 2 miles of trail.

    Mukluks kept my feet warm and dry. My backpack snow shovel really got used a lot. It really helps keep all my gloves dry for my glove layering system.

    Another nice trip. Nice hammock setup. Love my Superfly tarp and Hammock Gear quilts both 0+1. Got down to 9 the other night. Love winter hammock camping. Thanks for the video. Wishing you and yours a happy holiday season.

    Thanks for another great video to break the winter doldrums. It's good to know you can carry everything you need for subzero cold camping on your back.

    When I get home and warm I often wonder how and why I do it.
    Well I know. The 12 hours of sleep in the muffled forest.

    Thankee. It is a good winter tarp.

    For now I can. When it gets colder I will pulk it so I can tote more fuel and my Big Woolie Boreal jacket. But I could still strap it all on the pack. Maybe.

    Great video, Shug! At a balmy-5F, I guess it is not cold enough yet to resort to a pod. You will have to wait for actual winter. I like that positive talk about the JRB HS Snivler, as I have the warm weather version, the low Sierra Snivler, or simply the Sierra Snivler. I like it, I like it a lot, as I do the Greylocks.

    Always a pleasure watching your videos. I agree about the only problem with hammock camping is that you never want to get out of the Hammock!! I can easily sleep 12 hours in mine !!

    Thanks for the trip. Really appreciate your advice about managing winter camping. We don't get significant snow fall in the Mid-Atlantic area and learning from your trips is a good way to anticipate conditions that might pop up. I really like your tarp set up. I've used a SuperFly for several years. Haven't switched to an interior pole set up. I've used my poles on the outside in warmer weather to increase the tarp interior space. But see why you do this pole mod in snowing conditions.
