    +1 to this... My kayak is dying to get a bath and I'm done with this cold crap. I want bugs, wild edibles, creek swimming, and my kids out of school so we can do more hiking.

    Old man winter has just arrive, and I don't mean the tarp from WL. It has been nice and cold for a good week, a little snow, but not much. Highs haven't been above freezing in several days. Then this weekend, the forecast is calling for highs in the mid 30s, and come Tuesday, a high in the mid 60s. Crazy crazy......RR

    Near 80 for the past couple of days down here in coastal Texas. I think Spring has gotten here early this year.

    Winter to end? It's barely started. Technically 1 month and a few days into the season.

    Here on the east coast winter has finally arrived! I am so happy and hope it sticks around. It's final below 30 and snowing.
    I agree. My area got some lake effect snow yesterday. We went from none to about 6" in a couple of hours. The temperatures were well below freezing for a week or so and now my local forecast calls for rain and temperatures well above freezing.

    Indeed, snowshoeing is great fun.

    Spring is probably the worst time to hang in Colorado.
    The winds are so strong it blows down live trees. You never know if you are hanging safe.
    I've only got to winter camp once so far and hope to get a few more winter hangs in before yard work and house maintenance starts.

    Fall and Winter for me is the best time to hang, too wet in spring. At least when it's cool or cold out you can stay warm with the right gear. In the summer there is just no relief from the heat unless you are in the water. I love cold weather!!

    Cold weather never bothered when I was younger. Now aches and pain come with even cool weather, let alone the cold stuff. I can’t wait for hot sunny days… it just feels so good to my bones. In the meanwhile I will paddle and hang in my mind and on the internet.
    I do enjoy learning about everyone’s cold weather camping. It’s so interesting since I’ve never done it.
