How To Start Winter Camping: Make the trip enjoyable

How do you start out winter camping?  Making the trip enjoyable should be your primary goal, not how many miles you cover or how fast you get to your destination.

Some of our most enjoyable trips involved falling short of the intended destination.

Select an appropriate destination that matches everyone’s physical conditioning level. You don’t want to be exhausted when you reach camp.  You want to arrive at the camp only “knowing I have exercised” or, at most, “comfortably tired”.

Frame the trip as winter camping, not winter hiking.
