Heading out for the Weekend

Tonight I will get getting up on the mountain for my first “Winter” camp of the year.  I have the pulk loaded and everything is double checked… except it looks like old man winter has taken a nap.
I checked the weather service yesterday.. this weekends low is going to be in the 40’s with highs in the 50’s.  Not much swing there, but we are going out none the less.
So to be prepared, I am going to throw the pack in the truck and when I get to the snow park, if there is no snow, I can always load up the pack to hike in.
Being flexible in your planning is pretty important in winter camping, you have to plan for multiple contingencies.  This is where “Be Prepared” really is important.  I really don’t know what to expect tonight when I get out of the truck, so I need to go prepared for everything.
The basics of course are standard, but do I overdress?  What boots I am going to wear?  How about a jacket?  Which one and how heavy?  These are the questions that I thought about (and more) last night as I packed.  I want to be prepared for whatever the mountain is going to give me so I can have the best time this weekend.
Just some things to think about.
Ok.. the giveaway is over.  I will announce the luck winner on Sunday when I get home.  Thank you all for following/subscribing and leaving comments.  It was fun to see them all come in.
Building this online community is important to me and one of the ways in which we do that is by sharing and commenting here on the blog.
Well, thanks again.. I’m off for the weekend.. I’ll blog at ya on Sunday!
Have a Great Scouting Day!
