I would have worn snowshoes back when I started winter camping if I knew better. Back then I thought snowshoes looked like tennis rackets and were only used by Canadians in the great white north.

So obviously something is wrong if I knew enough to pack my garbage in and out and didn't know enough to use the snowshoes.
