Cold Weather Camping with Alex Flowers

Segment 3, December 2nd, 2023

The cold weather is here & while that means that many like huddling up around a fire place there are still a lot of people that continue to get outdoors.  Hunters, Hikers, & yes, even campers are still being outside during the cold weather months.

There are several reasons that cold weather camping is desirable.  We’re going to talk about some of those reasons:  Less haze for views, no bugs, no snakes, less sweat & perspiration & also guess what…less crowds.

However, there are dangers associated with cold weather camping.  We’re going to talk about the ways to be safe & still enjoy going outside.
