I'm thinking of doing some winter camping outside, just wondering what kinda tent I should use, ( like a specific brand, type). Also gonna be doing some squatting and if super cold, possibily stay at a shelter house. Looking for something affordable or to make do with untill I find or save up enough money for a good quality tent meant for winter camping in the moutains :) Anything you people recommend in regards to this? please include the type of tent and any other details. Thanks so much :)

I was watching a survival video and this man used a tarp and a space blanket and a good sleeping bag and kept a fire going next to him. I also read in a magazine a about a man who did the same thing and about a mile or 2 away from him these two people who had a tent froze to death.

I am wondering the same thing.i have a massive 2 dome tent that joins together.made by coleman.during my really cold nights i turn on my colman stove and vent my windows...but mostly i use a penny stove for heat...i reccomend using 90% or higher denatured alch..cause anything shy of moonshine just takes to long to prime in a cold start.im planning on taking my skillz to colorado and just wondering because here in tn where its cold but not freezing...my set up is adaquate...but once i get to high altitude and my tent gets covered in snow and im all cozy in my hobbit hole of a existance....i dont know if adequate ventilation is available and i dont know if id stay dry due to thermal heat radiating off my tent.so.. Im tuned in..

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $70.75 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $70.75 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $70.75 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
Anyone been to Thailand or know anything about Thailand? Going in September and have absolutely no plans yet, open to suggestions!
