Hello, I notice this is an Aussie camping site, regardless (I could not find any other seemingly helpful camping info site).
So, my questions are-
What tent is best for harsh winter conditions?
I plan on visiting alaska, and canada to camp/hike. It doesnt really matter if it is all too heavy, if I do end up going to these places I will probably be pulling a sled behind me as I hike.
What general supplies do I need?
Mostly all I can think of is-
Some way of starting a fire
Trekking poles (if needed)
Radio for emergencies
pan (to heat water if frozen)(to cook)
My trusty old raggety blanket
Depending on the bear populations, I may have to bring a rifle. But I am completely informed on how to shoot a firearm.
And of course, winter clothing, like light insulated water resistant clothing, boots, snowshoes, the works
If you guys could also fill me in on brands for certain things, or tell me something else I may need, I would appreciate it
Also, I would like to hear about tips, or techniques anybody here has used during snowy conditions. Anything is helpful! Thanks in advance!
