A few small things I have found to help newcomers enjoy cold-weather camping:

I really like the leanto at Copperas Pond. It's just outside of town in Lake Placid, parking is right across the street from the trailhead. The hike in is a bit steep, but not long. Maybe 20-30...

I second the trekking poles. I also lengthen my poles a few inches on the descent for added stability. Also, I keep ibuprofen in my backpack just in case.

To add to the foot pain, it is likely...

I will second Will's sentiment. I went on an overnight hike to a leanto in Allegheny State Park with two friends in July, which ended up being occupied. The two guys there graciously offered to pitch...

I agree with mont. Darker beers like porters and stouts can get a little warm and still be enjoyable. IPAs and pales need to be cold, but not ice cold. Cheapies like pbr and genny need to be ice cold.

I have this and I really like it. It's very bright for its size, but it also has a dimming feature. I hang it in the top of my tent/leanto to read with. It was $20 at Cabela's.

Camping Alone

I've been going on a lot of solo trips the past year. I love backpacking with a friend or two, but the older I get the harder it seems to coordinate schedules. So I just head out on my own. I'm...

I try to use a porta potty or thunderbox whenever available. When there is no other option, I dig a cat hole. Rather than burying paper, I keep a travel pack of baby wipes in my pack. Then I put the...
