Hello again all,
Being a family of kayakers and canoeist we have zero experience winter camping. After all it's kinda hard to padddle on ice. Around the house the subject has come up and 2 (outta 3) of my daughters are wanting to give it a try.
My question is: Should I take my Eureka Tetragon 7 (3 1/2 season?) or should I go for a tarp with a fire in front of it?
Camp site will be on private ground and I will have unlimited supply of deadfall firewood since they went in and cut down 100 oak trees about 5 years ago. My daughters are both under 10 but have experience camping and paddle their own kayaks on our camping trips. Temps will most likely be highs in the upper 20's to lower 30's and lows in the single digits or teens. Weight is not much of a concern since we will most likely be within a half mile of the truck for this "first" outting. Sleeping gear will be suitable for the temps, but not overly so.
Did I leave anything out?
