    Doing some tent camping this weekend. Low is right around 10 degrees.

    I love the cold. My girlfriend is telling me Iím going to be miserable. Iíve camped a lot, but never winter camping. We have tons of firewood and blankets. Pretty sure Iíll be in a tshirt by the fire, but she wonít let up. Lol

    Sheís winter camped before, but sheís also 100lbs. Iím 240. Pretty sure Iíll be good

    Used to do a lot of winter camping and hiking. Spent the night on top of a few mountains in New England around 20 below.

    I don't in any degree weather.

    I love the outdoors and we go hiking, skiing, etc but I also then head back to an air conditioned cabin/hotel/house and take a shower. I love everything about tent camping except the tent!

    Camped in the teens. Near the Kankamagus Hghy in NH. Tent. No fire. Froze my ballinis off. My toes almost froze. Had to massage the hell out of them to get the blood flowing again.

    Good luck.

    Last night was fucking brutal. 10 degrees 3 windchill. We lasted until 2 am, 0 degree sleeping blankets didnít even help. We slept in the suburban. Be 31 tonight, doable. More so than last night. Lol
