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.

Three years of loving and caring, down the backed up toilet.
I feel uncomfortable with all of the transphobic micro-aggressions being thrown around here lately. I also feel uncomfortable standing up in defense of trans folk, me included, in fear of developing discourse without the consequence of proper accountability.
