Some of these camps make me feel cold.

No kidding! I've spent the night out without a sleeping bag by choice just once, in April (on a ledge, on a rock wall) and I'll never do it again.


Here's an old photo of a winter camp with a couple of friends near Snow Lake (circa 1990).

Yeah, I really enjoyed the layout and space. Found it to work perfectly for me, all my gear and being able to move around and get dressed. Looking forward to spending 5 days in it next week.

A few of my camps.. Usually out somewhere solo hunting or just out scouting with my pup. I got a 2 man BA tent for me and the dog and am super happy with it so far.. Been out about 25 nights in it so far. Room for me, the dog and all of our gear..

Love the "packable" bong.... a two footer is just too much for the backcountry

Backpack hunt for sheep and caribou, northern BC.  Homemade kite cloth tarp from Seattle Fabrics 20 years ago.

 

Below is during the late season in Cascades, tarp set up the poorest ever.  Good weather the night before so I foolishly pitched it in a way more open spot than my usual of tucking it tight to and back under the protection of heavy tree cover.  Snow storm that night, natch, though it was OK under the tarp.  Flat rock for setting stove on within reach of sleeping bag, for a hot morning drink and hot oatmeal.  Packing out a big buck made it all better.   ;)

With the fires causing us to alter our plans, we got creative where we put camp this year on the archery elk trip.  Not my first choice of location, but it worked.

I need to invest in a bivy for weather like this.

Surprisingly we couldn't cut fresh elk tracks in the snow...
