I have a friend who does winter camping at the boundary waters in MN. Purpose? No freaking clue. Who camps in sub-zero weather? Why do people camp in sub-zero weather? I don’t get it. Never will. (Of course, I don’t get camping in good weather. But that’s just me. I like a bed, toilet and hot bath, when I’m roughing it. :-)

Did that once on a hiking trip in the Grand Canyon in December. Down in the Canoyn it warms up during the day and is pleasant, but at night, the Canyon fills up like a bathub with cold air pouring in from the rim.

We had brought a bottle of champagne along to celebrate New Year, I had to sleep with it to keep it from freezing and explosing.
