Love that fork Double O.  Here are some pics from our latest snowshoe adventure.  I played with a survival fire method for fire on snow.  You build the fire on top of a raft of branches.   It was so much fun.  You can see the fire actually melted its way through the snow.  The snow never smothered the fire.  I was able to get this fire going with some really wet wood, and a dead standing tree.  Tons of fun.

^^Brilliant, Come nuclear attack or zombie holocaust i think we will be just fine. The woods look very much like the woodland environment around my house. What is the climate like in the Northeast?
We get the snow Dec-Mar followed by pissing down rain in April then if we are lucky some sunshine June-Sept before the cold comes. My boy does not have the body mass as yet to keep him warm in the winter nights.  May-Sept for him. I dont mind bivvying year round as long as its dry.
It was hard finding him a good down bag because manufactures dont make them for 3year olds due to  feather allergy.

I'm not keen on hiking that much, but I do love camping. I had never been growing up (my parents are boring) but last summer I went to the delaware water gap in PA quite a bit! We would rent canoes and go canoeing down the river, then pull off on the side at an unmarked campground. Next morning we'd get up and canoe further down the river and get picked up at drop off point by the company that we rented the canoes from.  I am really looking forward to doing it again on my southwest road trip, and this summer! Also my boyfriend and I have been planning to do some motorcycle x camping trips. Hopefully we can do the trans-mass trail this spring or summer. I'll need to get a better bike or a dirtbike though!

A few pictures:

view down to the water from my favorite campsite


typical setup, you can see where the water is in the back:



for a friend moving to Nashville we had a going away camping trip, we had 8 canoes and tied them together and just lazy river'd it down for a few hours (and we brought her dog, porkchop!):




camping supplies:





sorry for the lack of good fashion choices but it's easier to wear activewear than look good while camping hahaha!  I really want to get one of these tents so I can go on more motorcycle camping trips:

Double O, I am building a house in Massachusetts. I bought 3 acres on a wooded lot. There is a large tract of undeveloped woodland behind the house. Mixed hardwoods and pine. Full of trails and open woods. We just got hit with pretty sizeable snowstorm. We got almost two feet overnight. The weather lately has been a mix. A little rain some snow. Cold nights (teens and twenties (F)) and 30s during the day. Spring in the Hilltowns (where I live) is muddy. I live on a dirt road that turns to slop. We started our son camping when he was an infant. My wife and I used to re-enact the French and Indian War so we camp most of the summer into fall. He has an O.K. synthetic bag. But this last fall we went out and even with a thinner bag stuffed into the other bag he still got cold. It was in the lower 30s that night. He was fine though. If he gets serious I will invest in a good kit for him.
 
Proulxsie, your trip looked like fun. Envious. I would love a good canoe. I live around some nice lakes and rivers. I have been building a Coracle to go fishing in. It will be a hoot. I will post pics once weget it water worthy.
My coracle as it is now.  I love the old pic of the man carrying the coracle on his back.  What a great look.  Ok, enough from me.

Good job on those winter fires with the wet wood, Littledog.  

Proulxsie looks like a load of fun.  the motorcycle tent add on is great.  never seen that before.  I love my motorcycle but not that much. :)

Love camping myself.  Have a ton of camping under my belt.  Good thread.

^^Yes, thanks for the outlet.  I think that is what hss drawn me so much to Denimbro, it seems to combine everything that I am interested in.  And everyone here comes from such diverse places yet it is really a meeting of minds.  Cheers.
