    the crunchy snow is nice to hear.
    we don't get good snow very often here in the piedmont of NC.
    thanks bud!
    I am loving the Claxsnacks. So tasty and moist and gooey.

    Looks like a great time out playing in the snow, sure wish we got the white stuff like that around here.

    I know....I am hung up on chow. My daughter was emailing me pictures of her meals from France......her father's daughter said she.

    Did you have a bit of alcohol in a pocket during the night to be ready for the
    tea in the hammock ritual in single digit temps?
    One ounce of HEET in the chest pocket and all is good to go for Coffee...instant espresso. No tea for me until 5pm.

    your videos ROCK!!!

    why don't you use the bush buddy or a wood burning stove when it's that cold? just wondering. I am getting the element stove and am pretty excited to use it in the cold here in ol Idaho

    Thanks. I never depend on fire for my winter camping but it is nice when I do have a fire.Some folks plan their winter trips around fire. Both work. Since we have to melt snow for water and lots of it a White Gas stove makes short work of it.
    My wood-stoves are the ones I use when "in that mood" to use them. Love them but they are a whim at times for me.

    Man, I keep telling Tala to stop leaving her stuff behind. I lost my cell out there too. Lol That was such a fun time out in the woods and I had a blast around that fire. I shot out of there around 4am and that night hike out with no headlamp was "magical." Great hang. "This is awesome!"

    I sure did like meeting Tala....me and her done made friends. Enjoyed out palaver around the fire as Stairguy was swaddled in down in the hammy.
    Never heard you leave....was in glorious slumber.
    Maybe you can find the phone on the MN FBH!

    Another Awesome Video by Shug! Love em! Keep them coming and glad you had a great time and hang. Nothing like a good snow and the peace and quiet it provides in the piney woods. Been playing around with the 18 inches we have in Southern Indiana right now as we don't usually get much to play in. Keep the videos coming!
